My mom has a cabinet full of photo albums curated from years of vacations, birthday parties and family events. While the days of dropping off film canisters at a 24-hour photo counter and carefully arranging the prints in a physical photo album may be in the past thanks to the digital era, I find there’s still no replacement for actually holding those family photos in a photography book on my lap.

Shutterfly/Screenshot by Shelby Brown/CNET

Shutterfly is one of the better known digital photo book service options. The site can help you assemble a photo book with over a dozen occasion templates and book sizes, or with tutorials and ideas if you want to start entirely from scratch. You can also choose Shutterfly’s Simple Path, which uses the site’s software to instantly lay out your photos — you need only rearrange them if you like, and decorate and add captions with this editing tool. Basically, you’ll have a personalized photo coffee table book in no time.

You can add print quality photography from your computer, or photos already uploaded to Shutterfly, Facebook or Instagram. You can also use stock photos from Shutterfly’s Art Library. Any photo you upload has to be in JPEG format. The website doesn’t take long to learn to navigate, even if you aren’t very digitally savvy. If you need a bit of inspiration, you can click Idea Pages for some premade templates. 

How much it costs: Without the sales tax, an 8- by 11-inch 20-page hardcover photo book would cost about $40 before shipping and tax. , so you should be on the lookout for promo codes to apply to your personalized photo book purchase to save some money. If you add or delete something from your project, Shutterfly will tell you that the price of your project has changed.

Mixbook/Screenshot by Shelby Brown/CNET

minimalist layout makes it very easy to use. The site has dozens of fun photo book themes — family, seasonal, wedding, travel, baby — and more specific designs in each category, perfect for a photo gift. There’s also the option to put a book together from scratch.

Mixbook lets you upload print-quality photos from your computer, phone, Facebook, Instagram or Smugmug or use the photos you’ve already uploaded to the site. 

I used Mixbook to organize my wedding photos a few years after the fact. It was easy to add and edit photos, text, extra pages and embellishments to the template I chose. You can swap themes at any time, but from what I can tell, you have to change the pages manually, though the photos will transfer over.

You can be as creative as you want to be and veer away from the template as you like — or Kampus Terbaik di lampung stick with it. As you build your book, you can click Preview to see how the final product will look along the way. When you’re satisfied with your book, click Order to finalize the photo book size, page and cover finish. 

How much it costs: Mixbook offers a lot of customization options that can affect your final price. Photo books can be ordered in landscape, portrait or square shape in 6- by 6-inch, 8.5- by 8.5-inch, 10- by 10-inch and 12- by 12-inch sizes. Mixbook offers four different page finishes and five different cover option styles. The combination you choose, and any extra pages, will determine your price. 

Choosing the regular semigloss page finish and a softcover can help keep . Designing a larger book with more bells and whistles like hardcover matte or leather with a dust jacket will raise the final price. For example, my 8.5- by 8.5-inch 39-page hardcover wedding photo book came to about $30 with a discount code, before tax and shipping.

Snapfish/Screenshot by Shelby Brown/CNET

makes uploading photos to make an album super easy by organizing all of your uploads into a file. From there, you can let Snapfish autofill your photo book or add your images manually. Snapfish had a similar photo editing user interface to Mixbook, but was more sensitive about image resolution. For example, on both sites if an uploaded image’s resolution is too low, it’s flagged with a little exclamation mark. Some of the photos that were OK for Mixbook didn’t pass Snapfish’s resolution requirements. 

Snapfish had dozens of templates and themes like Summer Snapshots, Grad Nostalgia, Family Farmhouse, Storybook Love and Moments with Mom. If you picked a template to start with, you can still swap pages for other backgrounds or change the book theme entirely. Some of the embellishments with certain templates had drop-shadows for each photo that made them feel more like traditional scrapbook pieces. 

How much it costs: When you’re finished with your project, click Review and Buy to place your order. For an 8- by 11-inch hardcover 20-page photobook, Snapfish charged $40. The site also offered to print nine 4- by 6-inch glossy prints from the album for 9 cents each. 

Walmart/Screenshot by Shelby Brown/CNET

Get started on your photo book by making an account on . You can customize your photograph book’s size, from 5 by 7 inches all the way up to 12 by 12 inches, as well as the cover type, binding and how fast you want it delivered. Since I already had the photos available, I tested out Walmart’s All That Glitters wedding album template. You can swap templates at any time, but the photos you’ve placed won’t transfer, and you’ll need to put them back into the new layout.

Walmart lets you upload digital photography from your computer, Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Dropbox and Google Photos, but the site will only hold onto the photos for one year. After dropping a photo in, click it to start the editing process if you want to make adjustments. However, Walmart provides fewer photo editing options — a black-and-white or a sepia filter, the ability to crop, zoom, tilt, brightness adjustment and red-eye elimination — compared to other websites.

It was easy to drag and drop photos or swap layout pages in the template. One of the downsides to Walmart’s photo books though was the lack of embellishments. The program lets you add text, but «stickers,» like those on other sites, would’ve taken the design process up a level. 

How much it costs: Once you’re finished with your project, click Next to review your photo book in a storyboard format before you order. There’s also an option to preview the entire book page by page if you want a more detailed review before ordering. You’ll get an alert if you left any slots blank, so don’t panic. Walmart’s option is also the least expensive of the bunch: An 8- by 11-inch 20-page hardcover photo book cost about $19 before shipping and tax. The store offers free shipping on orders over $35.

Mailpix

If you’re not keen on making an account and getting a slew of emails from a company, might be the way to go. With this photo book company, you can make a photobook as a guest, no account needed. 

Mailpix offers premium ultra layflat, layflat, hardcover book and softcover photo book styles, ranging from 8-by-8 inches to 11-by-14 inches in size. The site recommends designing the book on a computer and using JPEG files. You can pick out styles for almost every occasion — birth celebrations, Mother’s and Father’s day, holidays like Christmas, Halloween and Hanukkah, birthdays and pets. 

Choose a layout and upload your photos. You can change the page layout at any time and the photos you’ve added to that page will adapt (unlike with Walmart’s service). One thing I didn’t like about Mailpix was the red line that appeared around the page indicating that a section might be cropped out during printing. This made me a bit nervous — especially with embellishment-heavy pages, and I found myself distracted while I tried to imagine who my page would turn out.

I experimented with a cute retro design that looked similar to something you might be able to recreate with real scrapbook materials. There was a nice diversity in page layouts, and the site warns you if a photo’s resolution is too low, so you can adjust. In addition, Mailpix updates your price total as you go along, so you’re not caught off-guard by the final price at checkout. 

How much it costs: When you’re satisfied with your book, name it and choose how many copies you’d like to order. Select a cover style, add a photo if you’d like and check out. The prices for the book styles and amount of pages vary, like with the other sites — the fancier the book and more pages you add, the more expensive it gets. On Mailpix, every extra page cost $1.20.

An 8-by-8-inch softcover book with 22 pages came $37.40 before tax and shipping — ground shipping is $9, but Mailpix had a spring sale going on and two promo codes available as well, which will lower your price a bit. 

Google Photos/Screenshot by Shelby Brown/CNET

Instead of uploading your photos into another app, you can create a photo book with less hassle with . In the Google Photos app, tap the For You tab (on my Pixel 3 phone, it’s at the bottom of the screen, but it also works on desktop) and then tap the Prints button. Tap Photo Books to get started with a hardcover 9- by 9-inch or a softcover 7- by 7-inch. Both books start at 20 pages and can go up to 100 pages.

Google will give you a few premade albums based on your photos, like Best of Winter 2019, or you can build your own photo book by choosing an album you already made. There’s also the option to start from scratch and manually add all the photos by tapping Make Photo Book at the bottom of the screen.

Google Photos is probably the most basic choice if you’re going to order a photo book. It offers a minimalist layout on white pages that you can add captions to. There aren’t embellishments like there are on Snapfish or Mixbook, but you can still make creative layouts with multiple photos. Hold down a page and drag it to rearrange or tap to edit. Google Photos still has editing options in its app for you to add filters before creating a book. 

How much it costs: A hardcover 9- by 9-inch photo book costs $20 and 65 cents for each additional page. A softcover 7- by 7-inch photo book costs $10 and 35 cents for each additional page before shipping.

Blurb/Screenshot by Shelby Brown/CNET

Making a photo book with Blurb has a bit more steep of a learning curve than the rest of the services on this list. Blurb is aimed at the professional photographer wanting to showcase work and possibly sell it with a professional photo book. You can still use Blurb to make a photo book as a keepsake or a gift for a loved one, but you need to download the free Bookwright app extension to do it after making an account with the photo book service. You can also use programs like Adobe InDesign and Adobe Lightroom, but I would only recommend using these if you already pay for them. 

To start your project after you’ve downloaded Bookwright, you can choose your book preferences (cover, size, page style). I used a from Blurb to get the hang of the program. At its bare bones, the program works like other photo-book creation sites. Import the photos you want, choose to auto-create the book or drag and drop the photos into the layouts you choose. You can also design your own layout and save it for future use. Clicking Manage Photos displays all your pages in a spread so you can rearrange as needed.

When you’re finished with the project, you can click Upload to send to Blurb. You can purchase physical copies of your photo book and/or get a digital version in PDF format ($5 extra). If you’re ordering multiple copies (10 to 20+), Blurb has up to 40% discounts. You can also upload editions to sell by clicking Sell Your Book instead of Order Your Book after uploading it. 

How much it costs: Blurb, like the other services, lets you customize your project to best fit your price range. The site default recommends a 20-page 10- by 8-inch landscape photo book with an image-wrap hardcover and premium luster paper for $41. Each additional page costs 35 cents. My test album was the cheapest combination: A 20-page 7- by 7-inch softcover with standard paper for $15. Each additional page was 20 cents.

The Lenses work with both the front and rear-facing cameras on a smartphone or tablet, which Snap is rolling out 30 in total.

‘An incredibly talented music supervisor was brought onto the project, Allison Wood, who has an amazing ear for talent and catchy songs that would quickly be a hit with our community,’ said Millan.

‘Working with some of the hottest tracks, Michael and Dytto were then able to choreograph all the dances in the show and put their full creativity on display.’

Those that get the most views in a 24-hour timeframe will earn their creators a share of more than $1 million (£750,000) in prize money.

‘Since Snapchatters have the option to create Snaps from the show and share them just with close friends, your personal Story, or submit into Spotlight….we created Spotlight because it’s clear that many want to post their creative Snaps in an enduring way to public forums for broad visibility,’ a Snap spokesperson told DailyMail.com.

‘They do so today on other platforms, and Spotlight creates a space for that within Snapchat. 

Parents call for better school internet safety after teen suicide

Grieving parents of a teenager who took her own life after accessing suicide content from a classroom are fighting for improved internet safety in schools.

Judy and Andy Thomas from Aldershot, lost their only child, Frankie, in 2018. The 15-year-old died from suicide using a method copied from a story she read about online only hours earlier — and subsequently discovered Frankie had been accessing similar material for at least nine months prior while at school.

Now a coroner has backed their campaign, issuing a report demanding national action over outdated guidance and weak regulatory oversight from the Education Department.

Judy, 63, a retired music teacher, said: ‘Our beloved daughter is gone and nothing can bring her back. But we don’t want any more families to endure the same tragedy.’

Frankie was diagnosed with high functioning autism soon after starting primary school, aged five. She was intelligent and funny, but struggled with social situations.

Judy said: ‘Frankie was quite a character. Absolutely fearless. She loved theme park rides and zipwires. She had lots of energy and enjoyed climbing, judo, boxing, horse riding, and windsurfing.

‘It was a total privilege to be her parents and we were extremely proud of her. She had such potential and we believed in her one hundred per cent.’

Frankie attended a mainstream primary, but when she was ready to move to secondary education her parents realised she struggled with a large-sized site and a noisy environment.

She was initially sent to a small independent school, which later closed. Aged 12, she moved to a special educational needs school.

Judy said: ‘Frankie was into many typical teenage things. Her favourite band was Green Day. She played bass guitar, was in a band and dreamed of going to music college one day.

‘But her disability made her extremely vulnerable to suggestion and she could be rash and impulsive.

‘Because she wasn’t a typical teen, we had to take great care with certain things, including the internet. At home, our family computer was password protected, and she could only use it if Andy or myself were sitting beside her.

‘I informed her school that our daughter needed to be closely monitored on the internet.’

On September 25, 2018, Frankie took a break from class, which occasionally happened when she needed some quiet time. She sat in a corridor with a school iPad, having been told to research the lesson subject.

Instead, over two hours while unsupervised, she accessed hardcore pornography and stories on social storytelling platform Wattpad, four of which described suicide and self-harm.

Judy recalled: ‘That day, Frankie came home in a seemingly happy mood. She played on her garden swing — something that soothed her anxieties — before going up to her bedroom.

‘When I called her down to dinner an hour later she didn’t reply.’

The concerned mother went upstairs, where she found her daughter.

She said: ‘It was devastating. Our world ended that day.’

Judy dialled 999, and helped by a neighbour, administered CPR until paramedics arrived. But Frankie was declared dead after more resuscitation attempts in hospital.

Judy continued: ‘Frankie had never spoken of suicide, to us. We know she hadn’t accessed material encouraging such thoughts at home.

‘But the day after her death, the school sent us a list of the last websites she accessed on the school laptop. We realised she’d been looking at X-rated content, and reading stories describing self harm and suicide. The final story mirrored her death later at home, pts terbaik sumatera just hours later.’

Frankie’s cremation in October 2018 was attended by over 200 people. The service started with her favourite Star Wars music, and her beloved Labrador dog Lucy preceding the coffin into the chapel.

Afterwards, Judy and Andy, an IT expert, discovered there would have to be an inquest into her death.

They turned amateur detectives to gather evidence.

Judy said: ‘The school had policies in place, promising that pupils would be safe online. And there was equipment to monitor use of the internet, and raise alerts if children accessed inappropriate websites. But crucially, we discovered, the system wasn’t connected properly.

‘This meant that it didn’t raise alerts when pupils accessed dangerous websites.’

Judy and Andy also had the school laptops forensically examined.

Happier times: Frankie aged four

This revealed Frankie had been accessing graphic sites discussing self harm and ways to commit suicide, while she was at school, for at least nine months before her death.

They also discovered that school iPads were still not connected to the alert system a year after the couple lost their daughter.

Frankie’s inquest finally went ahead in October, at which Surrey assistant coroner Karen Henderson told the couple they had done everything they could to protect their daughter during her lifetime.

But Ms Henderson said the failures of the school and Wattpad’s ‘lack of robustness’ over removing inappropriate content ‘more than minimally contributed’ to Frankie’s death.

Wattpad is not blocked by schools and in some schools Key Stage 4 pupils are actively encouraged to use it.

The coroner questioned whether the platform’s 600 moderators were sufficient to police its one billion pieces of content.

The coroner also said there was ‘a lack of adequate direction’ from the Education Department when it came to implementing e-security at all schools, which seemed a bit like the ‘Wild West’.

A suicide verdict was recorded.

Judy said: ‘We fear that countless other schools across the country have similarly poor internet safety.’

This month the coroner wrote to the Education Department to demand action to address ‘inadequate regulatory oversight’ and ‘outdated guidance’ relating to internet safety systems in all schools, with standard advice on what sites should be blocked.

A Prevention of Future Deaths report pertaining to Frankie’s death has been sent to the Education Minister, who has 56 days to respond with suggested actions to address concerns.

Judy said: ‘The internet can be an extremely dangerous place, particularly for those with special educational needs, like our daughter.

‘We believe every child should be safe on the internet during classroom hours. We want schools to be legally required to review online safety policies on a regular basis, and check that monitoring and alert equipment is working properly — in the same way that happens with fire alarms.

‘Our Frankie was not safe at school. And ultimately she lost her life because of that. What happened to her was a catastrophic failure.’

The couple hope their daughter’s death will be a wake up call for schools and the Education Department.

Judy said: ‘Frankie was larger than life, and such a big part of our lives. We miss her terribly and still can’t believe she’s gone.

During a joint interview with hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, BBC star Victoria said: ‘It’s been absolutely amazing. Marrying Mark and having my two boys — this is up there. I squeezed the life out of it. I would ask questions if I wasn’t a journalist! Legends like this… everyone has got a story to tell.

‘Within days there was something about having no distractions, it’s like OMG you’re telling your life story to strangers, but it was lovely.

‘You think you’d get on with most people as we’re normal and relative nice. I thought there would always be one [who you wouldn’t get on with], but there wasn’t!’

Actress Beverley added: ‘We’re sad to go but we’re happy to go. I don’t know what got me through it, I still feel like I don’t have any survival skills. You just do it and your mind goes into a different place. It’s completely up there with everything, it was truly unforgettable.’

The soap star left fans baffled throughout the series as she tucked into non-vegan meals during her journey, despite claiming to follow a plant-based lifestyle.

She explained: ‘I started it in March as I had an operation. I saw this documentary that claimed that your joints heal faster if you go plant-based.’

When asked who they hope will win this year’s edition, the pair agreed that they’d like to see Shane Richie and Jordan North in the final two.

Hilarious moment father photobombs girl's video presentation

A hilarious father photobombed his daughter’s video presentation for her teacher with some impressive dance moves in footage which has since gone viral.   

In the video, little Delaney says ‘so today we’re going to be doing some crafts’ as she moves the camera into position in her kitchen in Beaverton, .

She then instructs her Amazon Alexa to play Kidz Bop’s Uptown Funk as she begins the tutorial, stamping and pouring glitter glue on a sheet of paper.

Unbeknownst to her, Delaney’s father Isaac had entered the kitchen while she worked, dancing furiously to the track in the background of the shot.

However, after one particularly loud move, Delaney tells those watching ‘that’s just my dad’ before diligently continuing the presentation for her first-grade teacher.

Her older brother Hunter also begins to sing along with Uptown Funk, prompting Delaney to ask: ‘What is wrong with this family?’

‘This is my brother,’ she continues as he steps into shot, before bursting into laughter when her father holds her youngest sibling in front of the camera in time with the music.

The young girl goes on to explain she provided the presentation to ‘spread some Christmas cheer’ as she doesn’t know when she will next see her teachers.

The focus of the probe is on how the company stores U.S. clients’ data, including personal information and intellectual property, and whether the Chinese government could gain access to it, the people said.The potential for Beijing to disrupt access by U.S. users to their information stored on Alibaba cloud is also a concern, one of the people said.

U.S. regulators could ultimately choose to force the company to take measures to reduce the risks posed by the cloud business or prohibit Americans at home and abroad from using the service altogether.

Former President Donald Trump’s Commerce Department was concerned about Alibaba’s cloud business, but the Biden administration launched the formal review after he took office in January, according to one of the three people and a former Trump administration official.

Alibaba’s U.S.cloud business is small, with annual revenue of less than an estimated $50 million, according to research firm Gartner Inc. But if regulators ultimately decide to block transactions between American firms and pts terbaik sumatera Alibaba Cloud, it would damage the bottom line one of the company’s most promising businesses and deal a blow to reputation of the company as a whole.

A Commerce Department spokesperson said the agency does not comment on the «existence or non-existence of transaction reviews.» The Chinese Embassy in Washington did not respond to a request for comment.

Alibaba declined to comment.It did flag similar concerns about operating in the U.S. in its most recent annual report, saying U.S. companies that have contracts with Alibaba «may be prohibited from continuing to do business with us, including performing their obligations under agreements involving our…cloud services.»

The probe into Alibaba’s cloud business is being led by a small office within the Commerce Department known as the Office of Intelligence and Security.It was created by the Trump administration to wield broad new powers to ban or restrict transactions between U.S. firms and internet, telecom and tech companies from «foreign adversary» nations like China, Russia, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, and Venezuela.

The office has been particularly focused on Chinese cloud providers, one of the sources said, amid growing concern over the potential for data theft and access disruption by Beijing.

The Trump administration issued a warning in August, 2020 against Chinese cloud providers including Alibaba, «to prevent U.S. citizens’ most sensitive personal information and our businesses’ most valuable intellectual property…from being stored and processed on cloud-based systems accessible to our foreign adversaries.»

Cloud servers are also seen as ripe for hackers to launch cyber attacks because they can conceal the origin of the attack and offer access to a vast array of client networks.

While there are scant public cases of the Chinese government compelling a tech company to turn over sensitive customer data, indictments of Chinese hackers reveal their use of cloud servers to gain access to private information.

For example, hackers connected to the Chinese Ministry of State Security penetrated HPE´s cloud computing service website and used it as a launch pad to attack customers, plundering reams of corporate and government secrets for years in what U.S.prosecutors say was an effort to boost Chinese economic interests.

«PILLAR OF GROWTH»

Alibaba, the world’s fourth largest cloud provider according to research firm Canalys, has about 4 million customers and describes its cloud business as its «second pillar of growth.» It saw a 50% rise in revenue to $9.2 billion in 2020, though the division accounts for just 8% of overall sales.

It has boasted business relationships with units of top U.S.companies including Ford Motor Co, IBM’s Red Hat, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise, according to press releases.

While the sweeping Trump era powers don’t cover foreign subsidiaries of U.S. companies, U.S. regulators have previously found ways to link them to their U.S.parent companies, which can in turn be subject to restrictions.

Before tech tensions between the United States and China started to boil, Alibaba had big ambitions for its U.S. cloud business. In 2015, it launched a cloud computing hub in Silicon Valley website its first outside of China, with plans to compete with Amazon.com Inc, Microsoft Corp and Alphabet Inc’s Google.It later added additional data centers there and in Virginia.

A person familiar with the matter says the company scaled back its U.S. gambit during Trump’s presidency as tensions with China escalated.

In 2018, U.S. authorities blocked a bid website by Alibaba affiliate Ant Financial, now Ant Group, to acquire U.S.money transfer company MoneyGram International Inc over national security concerns. But a move to put Ant Group on a trade blacklist failed website and an executive order banning its mobile payment app Alipay was revoked by Biden website

Biden, like Trump, has placed more and more restrictions on Chinese companies.Last month, the U.S. government put investment and export curbs on dozens of Chinese firms website including top drone maker DJI, accusing them of complicity in the oppression of China’s Uyghur minority or helping the military.
