App Tips


Customize Your Layout

Sometimes you just need to make a little change to get the perfect page. With our Edit Layout mode, customize the look of your page in a snap by adding, removing, or moving page elements like pictures and text to get just the look you want.

Time Filter

Looking through hundreds of photos can become disorienting when you are trying to put together a photo book. Organize your photos with our Time Filter function. We divide your photos up into organized sets by date, and that way you can pick and choose photos from different events or holidays in a flash. You can also toggle whether or not photos that are already in use are still in your photo tray, or show all of your photos in your project.

Dark Mode Support

Photo Book Export

Export PDF's from the PrestoPhoto App

Need to send a proof of your photo book to someone, or just want to save a copy of your photo book securely for your records? PrestoPhoto allows you to do that! In the top right hand corner is an Export button, allowing for PDF, PNG, and JPG export of your entire book quickly and easily. You made it, you can do whatever you want to with it.

Photo Book AutoScale Support

Auto Scale your books to the size you want

It's easy to print your photo book big, small, or both! Using our Auto-Scale feature, our Landscape Photo Books can be printed at the normal Apple Photo Book Sizes like 13"x10" and 11"x8.5", but are also available in 14"x11", 10"x8", and 9"x7". After all, we like options too! You can also change from large hardcover photo book to a small softcover photo book with ease, so you can order whatever book you want, however you like.
