Why does FreePrints Photobooks require my location information on my iPhone and iPad?

Every time you snap a picture with your iPhone or iPad, location information is saved so that other apps can show where the photo was taken.

You can create a layout with multiple images with ease. Select a page then tap the layout icon. Select up to 6 photos and choose from the various layouts offered.

Do you offer full bleed pages?

A small triangle with an exclamation mark appeared on a page. What does it mean?

Your photo is too small and will appear fuzzy or blurry when printed at the selected size. We suggest you choose a layout that allows you to make this photo smaller or replace it with a higher-resolution photo.
