Upload, Identify and Share!
The simple system to protect your family photos

Preserving your family's photos might seem like an overwhelming task. But the longer you wait, the bigger it will become. It's the old adage: "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time." With Original PhotoBook, you will save time while having fun creating your family photo albums online! Try our Sample Site to see how it works.

Account AdministratorAccount Administrator and User Logins
Every account requires a Account Administrator. This person provides login access to other family members and allows different levels of access for every photo album: 'None', 'View' or 'Update'. This allows the Account Administrator to control who can see and update photos stored in a PhotoBook.

Original PhotoBook is a family-friendly web site. Each family account is password protected with individual logins for each user. Users are encouraged to participate by adding new photos and/or by filling in missing information for family photos already uploaded. Often a family member will recall where a picture was taken, or the name of a previously "anonymous" person. With "Update" access, a user can simply log in, find the album and update the picture accordingly.

Creating and Sharing Photo Albums
In addition to creating PhotoBooks to share with the whole family, users can also select photos contained in several PhotoBooks to create their own Personal Albums. Each user can create any number of Personal Albums containing photos from any PhotoBook to which they have access. This allows users to store and organize copies of uploaded photos in their own customized albums. These personal albums can also be printed for personal use or to give to others as gifts.

Searching Your Photo Albums
Original PhotoBook features an easy-to-use search function, helping you quickly locate photos of specific people or photos taken within a specific timeframe. Let's say you're looking for all photos of "Uncle Ernie" between 1955 and 1965. The search function allows you to search by name, place, date and keyword to track down photos across all accessible PhotoBooks.

This function also serves as a reminder for family members to preserve family memories by adding as much information as possible to every photo, including names, dates, places, events, stories and other unique details. Future generations will enjoy a digitally-preserved and complete family photo history — accessible for years to come!
