This is a Hipmunk guest post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads.
Blurb already lets you create photobooks with SmugMug, Picasa and Flickr accounts. I’ve actually used it to make a photo album from my gallery of travel photos, which is why I’ve paid attention to Blurb news – the book was professional-looking, easy to make and a lot of fun.

According to TechCrunch, users can now log into Blurb with their Instagram accounts and create a book, with the most popular image (based on Instagram likes) assigned to the cover. Recent images are folded into a book that can be printed and ordered via Blurb’s site.
While many people are getting out and buying DSLRs, mobile photos are skyrocketing in popularity and with so many apps to make phototaking fun with your phone (we’ll be talking about them soon in a travel photography roundup), this seems like a great match.
(I’ve got no affiliation with either of these companies, I just like shiny photos).
