When I was approached by Group Story to review their photobooks, I knew that I wanted to call in the help of some of my fellow Hanson Fans and get a group together to chronicle all our different trips to Tulsa, OK for the May 14th Members Only Event.
I opted to go with a small group, myself + 5 others, but Group Story allows you to invite as many people as you want!
All your photos are shared and all the pages are shared with your group. If you missed that “kodak moment” and someone else happened to capture it, you can easily incorporate their photo on to your page. You also get to choose which pages you’d like in your book based on all of the pages created by your group which is definitely a really cool aspect. It is possible that while your entire group worked together on the pages – no two books would end up exactly alike!
I could see this website being great for school – get the parents together to put a book together based on field trips or assemblies, etc where everyone is sitting in different areas and be able to get all aspects covered. It would also be great for family reunions when you can’t be everywhere at once snapping photos or even on group vacations!
Uploading and creating pages is super simple. The uploads went quickly and you could arrange your pages based on the number of photos you’d like to have on the page. I tried to break down each aspect of my trip (way there, way home, sightseeing while there, etc) and see how many photos I had from each and then create a page with that many photos. It also has the option of a page of just text if you are looking to add some journal elements from the trip.
Group Story is definitely a site I plan on using again to create more books with friends!I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com created by WebBizIdeas.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
