Today I’ve found another personalized photobook creator called Mixbook. Mixbooks seems similar to Inkubook except for a few differences. Mixbook allows you to pull in photos from Flickr, Facebook, Picasa, Yahoo Search, Smugmug and Photobucket. The Facebook integration is something we heard from readers that they wish Inkubook had. Mixbook also appears to be a bit cheaper overall than Inkubook. Printed softcover books start at $12.99.
Here’s how Mixbook works: You create a photobook and then invite your friends to join the book. Everyone selects photos to include in the photobook. As the book owner you can select the final photos to be printed. Mixbook recently launched a new book creation option called "Automix". Automix takes your photos and automatically creates a book which you can customize – apparently the Automix feature makes the initial process easier.
Lastly there’s a pretty neat photobook widget which allows you to show off your photobook on your blog or social networking profiles.
Update: I received some additional information from the founder of Mixbook. He notes, "We’ve got a powerful scrapbook editor that lets you use stickers, add your own backgrounds, add effects, and much more – it’s the world’s first online digital scrapbooking editor for photobooks!" He also noted that Mixbook lets your friends collaborate on more than just the photos with pages and stories.
