Photo Book Printing Using The Photo Book Maker At CVS

I finally got around to using the photo book printer at CVS and did some personalized photo book printing this week. How many pictures do you have on your phone? I have about 900. All of them need to be printed or saved or filed… but I never find the time. I typically take a photo, share it on social media, and then delete it. Isn’t that HORRIBLE?  What about 20 years from now? Won’t I need photo books to look back on? I used to be so GOOD at making photo album books when I just had two kids. But after Mr. Caleb, I simply lost my touch. It’s been nearly two years since I walked up to a photo book maker and printed a family vacation album. Well, things are about to change.

This morning, I decided that it was time to capture the last two family trips we’ve taken and create some tangible memories!. I also thought it would be fun to create a custom calendar. The best photo albums are the ones that are made from the heart, right? I went to my CVS and decided to take control of my memories once and for all. CVS pictures were in my future!

You will find Kodak Picture Kiosks inside each CVS/pharmacy Photo Centers.  It is here that you can actually CONNECT YOUR PHONE either through WiFi or via USB and create your photo album books. All I had to do was choose the correct WiFi server name (found on the screen) and select the prints I wanted to include from my camera’s photostream. Connecting to CVS pictures is SUPER EASY. Don’t fret. It worked like a charm at my CVS.

Trust me — I need easy and this was a breeze.

The pictures were then magically ported over to the CVS Kodak Picture Kiosk and I was able to create both a photo album book and a calendar without any issues at all.

Don’t have any photos on your camera that you like? Rather pull from your Facebook or Instagram feed? Guess what!? You can do that too! Your CVS pictures can be created a few different ways. There are a variety of ways you can retrieve your pictures and mold the best photo books. You can also bring a camera card and pop it right into the CVS kiosk as well.

  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • E-mail
  • USB
  • Cell-phone (through the USB)
  • CD-ROM

How To Use The Photo Book Maker

CVS/pharmacy Photo Centers and Kodak Picture Kiosks help vacations last a lifetime through personalized photo gifts.

The directions were so easy to follow. Touch the pictures I want on my phone, drag them where I want them to go on the screen, and add them to my cart. Boom. I created both items in under 8 minutes — and that was with my three kids sitting around me. You know what I mean!!!

There were five different sizes, customizable backgrounds and layout, and additional text and clipart to choose from. I didn’t go CRAZY with personalizing my photo album book and you don’t have to either. I chose the size and template and called it a day. If you are more creative, you can spend the time to really jazz your purchase up!

Don’t want to use the photo bookmaker in the store? You can create the best photo books by ordering them online and then using free same day pick up in store.

Oh and PS — all CVS/pharmacy Photo products have a 100% money-back guarantee if not completely satisfied. That was SO GREAT TO LEARN! It was nice to hear that if I didn’t like what was printed, I didn’t have to pay for it.

Customize Your Photo Album Book

If a photo doesn’t exactly fit, you can zoom or drag and move around. Very customizable. There are also additional edit features if you want to get fancy – but I kept it simple.

My photo book and calendar will be ready in an hour! I will post my results tomorrow so you can check out the final products. Stay tuned!!

CVS/pharmacy Photo Center and Kodak Picture Kiosks offer photo gifts that can be created and taken home the same day including hard-cover, bound photo books, collages, greeting cards, birth announcements, and invitations. So, it’s not just standard photos that you can get right away — it’s all of the above. I LOVE THIS! If you are in the last minute bind, now you know you have a GREAT printing OPTION at CVS.

  1. I’ve been so bad lately about making photo books, too! Thanks for the nudge, this looks like a really easy system.
