MyAlbum is a new service (currently in beta) that lets you transform a set of photographs into beautiful photo essays that you can share with a simple link.
After creating an account on the service (or logging in with your Facebook or Google accounts), you can create an album by uploading a collection of photographs. Each user is given 10 gigabytes of storage space.
Once it receives your photos, MyAlbum will use “smart algorithms” to magically select your best shots and create a layout for the images that focuses on those images.
You can then drag and drop images to rearrange their positions and sizes, apply filters to photographs, and enrich your album with a number of extra types of content. Currently you can add text, weather information, maps, tourist info, date and time, icons, speed, and height.
Here’s a page we created with just a few clicks in minutes:
As you may be able to tell from that list of “enrichments” above, MyAlbums is currently gearing its service toward travelers who wish to document and share their trips with the world through eye-catching visual stories.
MyAlbum tells us that it’s partnering with businesses in the tourism sector to tell beautiful stories as well — a hotel chain has already signed up to share its stories using the service.
If you’d like to start using the service to tell your own photo stories, you can sign up/log in over on the MyAlbum home page.
