Very distressing not to realize this before I made these books for the grandkids but glad there is a solution. How do I order through a third party vendor... not sure of that process.


Thanks for your help!

Yes they do offer print services for Photos, and yes, they would prefer you to use the new app - less support and maintenance for them. But it's by no means compulsory, and your books won't migrate to the new app anyway.


Where in the world are you?

The one vendor that other users have tried and favorably reported on is PrestoPhoto.


Create a PDF of your book according to this Apple document, Preview a print project in Photos or iPhoto to avoid issues - Apple Support, go to the PrestoPhoto site, select the book type you want and upload the pdf file to their site.
