Linea App- easy sharing, storing and print

Why do you take pictures?

I take them to document our lives and have those precious everyday moments to remember and cherish for years to come. I love that about photography. I love being able to freeze a moment and know that I can look back fondly on that memory for years to come. I love that my children will have images of their childhood to share with their own children.

What do you do with those pictures?

Are they living on your computer? Do you share them with family and friends? Do you print them? Oh, I hope you answered yes to the last two questions. It is so important that your images don’t get lost on your hard drive for no one to enjoy. You need to share and print them.

My children LOVE to look at pictures of themselves. Whether the picture was from last week or last year, they don’t care. They can sit and look at our photo albums for hours. They love to snuggle up and ask me to tell them about the people in the pictures. They want to hear the stories and I love sharing them with them. That is why I took the photos, to relive those precious moments. Your kids don’t care about the quality of your images. They care that they get to see the photos from their first day of school, second birthday and the birth of a sibling. They love the moments in between as well. After completing a Project 365 and shooting daily, I have captured a lot of random moments. These are some of their favorites. They giggle at the photos of an older sister sticking her head out of the exersaucer or remember that favorite book they were reading.

As a mother of 3 young children (ages 5 and under) I realize finding the time to share and print your images is a challenge. Finding an app or anything to make my life easier is always something I enjoy. I recently discovered Linea. It’s an app for your computer, iPhone or iPad. By using this app you are able to share and create photo books from your iPad and iPhone.

Sharing your images

This past Christmas we got together with my family. Everyone was taking pictures with their phones and cameras. Then we all headed home and were unable to see each other’s photos. By using Linea I am able to create a photo line and invite all my family members to share their images on the same photo line. You can set the privacy settings, which allow you to share your images, without worrying that anyone outside the family is going to see them. After everyone has uploaded their images from their phones or computers you can then print all the images into one book from your iPad or iPhone. What a fantastic way to get to enjoy everyone’s images! My kids can flip through the pages with their cousins. This is much easier than asking everyone to email me their photos so I can print them or put them in a book myself. This is a great keepsake for years to come.

I love how it puts your images in a great layout to showcase them. It’s so much fun to go through the images and remember these moments.

Besides being able to share your images and print them, Linea is also a great photo storage site. We all know you can’t store your images in too many places. Those images are precious and need to be backed up.

It’s so nice to have a place where I can upload both photos from my computer and my iPhone to one photo line and create a photobook.

    I would like to do this with my photos but no one is really interested in seeing my photos hanging around my house or theirs so I don’t really bother. Maybe I should just do it anyway cause my walls are kinda empty ;)

      I don’t believe that people don’t want to see your photos! Print them!! You will enjoy looking at them! Use the Linea app and print a book. You will love having your images easily accessible for you to flip though :)

    I do photobooks. In the future I plan to make a photobook out of all the photos I have taken this year in my 365.

      That’s a great idea! Sharing your 365 on Linea would be a great and easy way to print them at the end :)

    silly question, but what have you found about the linea printing quality? i know that is a big factor in choosing the right printing source, so i’d love to hear your impression so far! :)

      That isn’t a silly question! Print quality is definitely something to consider. I think they are really good quality and showcase my images nicely. If you want to test it out yourself, download the app and start with the MosaicBook, it’s only $5. The quality of the pages is the same in the MosaicBook as in the ClassicBook but the ClassicBook is hardback. :)

    Nice! I have been wanting to use blurb because of print quality, but it can be cost prohibitive, so this looks like a great option to try :)!

    I am trying to actually print more of my photos – it’s a shame when they rot on your harddrive where no one ever sees them. This was very inspirational, thanks!

      I completely agree! Definitely don’t let your photos rot on your hard drive :)

    I agree that it is necessary to take the time to print the pictures! What happens when technology changes, again, and the old computer you have is no longer compatible with viewing, etc….plus the value of family time looking at old photos is priceless! I am all for promoting ways to share and show your images and not leave on “devices”!

      I agree! Sitting down and looking at old photos with your kiddos is priceless for sure!

    Printing photos is one of my favorite things. My kids, 13 & 15 also love to look at the photos digitally via web albums on the ipad, or photo books.

      I just love hearing that everyone is looking at the images :)

    Is there a site you’d recommend for printing photos. I wasn’t sure if linea is more geared toward sharing and making phone prints easier to download. I’m looking for a site where you can choose your photo paper and good quality photos. Love your site and all your beautiful photos. You’ have such a good eye with your photos, very inspiring! Thx.
