What’s New

Version 3.4

Version 3.4 arrives with two big features you’ve been asking for. We’re incredibly excited to bring you our new borders and advanced backgrounds:

• Image Borders - Add refinement to any layout with new borders for images. Available in black, white, and grey, these borders deliver a nuanced aesthetic touch highlighting your favorite moments.

• Advanced Backgrounds - We thought our solid background colors were feeling a bit lonely, so we decided to give them some company with a carefully curated set of stunning patterns. Not only can you choose from colors or patterns, but you now have the ability to overlay them together and select your own palette for a signature design.

We think you’re going to love these capabilities and can’t wait to see what beautiful designs you craft with these new features.
As always, thank you to all who have given us feedback! If you're enjoying using Mimeo Photos, please leave us a review in the App Store!

This app is not user friendly in the least. If you are one of the unfortunate people who are discovering that Apple has discontinued it's publishing in iphoto, I'm sorry to say this altenative is a terrible substitute. Converting a prepared photo book from iphoto will not be a smooth process. I lost photos in the process and could not import them again without diminished resolution quality. Twice while attempting to edit my photo book once it was converted (still with missing photos) the app suddenly added additional pages. A 56 pg book grew suddenly to 109 pages the first go round, and 75 pages the second time. The drag and drop feature is awkward and not as seamless as the apple version. And there are symbols employed on the photos without any explanation. Check marks or exclamation points- Are they telling me that the images are successfuly imported? Are they telling me that the image quality is good or insufficient? I have no idea. I'm also discovering that if you need to buy in bulk you will have to pay individual shipping for each one- regardless of shipping to the same location. Unfortunately, there is no alternative I can find that can easily convert previous work done in iphoto into a presentable photo book. Now I have no Christmas presents to send to my extended family and have wasted at least 30 hours on a nonviable project. It is not worth the trouble. They should not have done this. Do not waste your time or money in this app.

Mimeo is Good and Getting Better

I have made over 30 photo books on Apple and was devasted when they canceled the program. No one was more unhappy than I was when I had to re-learn a new way of making a book. With patience, I got used to the Mimeo program and find it to be quite good. I have now done 5 books on Mimeo. I find the quality of the books to be better than Apple. Also, for some reason, mine upload on Mimeo easier than Apple too. I have had a customer service issue or two and have found the Mimeo folks to be very helpful. I understand that certain "issues" are still being worked on, so I am hopeful that it will even be better over time. One thing I find frustating is that whatever photos you import into your book project cannot be deleted from the project. Thus, you have to keep scrolling over the unwanted photos to get to the ones you do want to use, which is tedious. The Mimeo folks tell me they are working on this. In the meantime, I try to be more selective about importing photos into the project, rather than just dumping a bunch in at the outset and deleting as I go, which is what I uesd to do with the Apple program.

Dear popcorngirl27,

Thank you so much for your feedback about our app and photobook quality, it’s always great to get comments from our customers about their experiences with Mimeo Photos.

We have been working hard to address issues by developing and refining our app, products and service. We have a lot of features planned for future app releases, including the ability to remove photos from a project that are not required or unused, which I have no doubt our customers will find very useful, so thank you for highlighting this feature request.

If you ever need assistance from us in the future, you can use the chat support service located on our site here:

We look forward to printing many more photobooks for you!

Download a photo project Extension warning from my mac project

When I was trying to create a Holiday Calendar with my Mac, an allert was coming up to download a photo project extension! Rather is should of been labeled, 3rd party app needed to process project purchase!

I spent a whole night trying to figure out what they were talking about, up until 2:00 am searching the internet! Finally, I found a story about it somewhere online. At this point I was extremely frustrated because of my deadline for Christmas. I decided on Mimeo, because at the time it had the highest reviews. Once I understood it was a new photo app that worked in conjuction to my “photos” on my Mac, it made sense and was very easy to work with. I actually found it more user friendly that using my photos. I got a discount with my 1st order too.
The Calendar arrived just as good quality as years past, nicely boxed for a safe arrival. I just wish they talked in laymans terms and not computer geek language so us old people can understand how to process our projects and prevent delays!

Hi LandjboysFL

Thank you so much for your feedback and comments. It sounds like you had some issues discovering that Apple had stopped printing photobooks and calendars and that Mimeo Photos had taken over the production of these products back in September 2018. Thank you for that insight, I think we can do a better job at providing information about the switch from Apple to Mimeo Photos in the future.

It’s great to know that you received your calendar safely and that we continue the legacy of Apple by providing first class photobooks and calendars.

We look forward to printing many more calendars and photobooks for you in the future.
