The Mixing Bowl 14

The summer is here! And we’re so excited to see all those Mixbooks of your summer trips. To inspire you, we’d like to highlight Janet C.’s book about her trip to Thailand. It’s filled with elephants, snake charmers, and a Thai McDonald’s! It’s exotic, tropical, and fun.

We hope that even if you don’t go somewhere this season, that you’ll try out our new features to make a book of your daily adventures. Go crazy and be creative!

Happy Mixbooking,

From Screen to Shining Screen

We’ve got two new features over here at Mixbook, and I can’t stop singing their praises! Keep reading to find out how much cooler your photobook will be because of them!

The first is fullscreen mode – now you can expand the photobook creator to take up your whole monitor screen by clicking on the fullscreen button at the top right-hand corner of the tool bar next to “Automix.” If you click the button once more, it will return to normal viewing. This feature will come in handy when you are putting pages together or resizing photos, because you’ll have more work area.

The second awesome feature is the ability to add a reflection to any photo or text that you want by clicking “Style” in the black editing tool bar. You can change the blur, offset (how much of the reflection is showing), and the opacity of the reflection. Ooooh, shiny!

Pages with beautiful landscapes and scenes will benefit from this feature – see the page we created below as an example of what you can do with the reflection tool.

We look forward to seeing what you do with these new tools, and we’d love to hear your experience with them! Have a wonderful weekend Mixbooking!
