Whether you have recently traveled, or maybe you just downloaded your camera roll from your phone. Everyone has a wide variety of photos that usually are not being used or displayed. Today we’ve compiled a list of 5 ways to use your pictures on your phone.

Photo Books

This one probably seems like a no brainer. However, spending time selecting photos and then turning them into a book can be very time-consuming. That’s why we love Chat Books. Chat Books syncs with your Facebook or Instagram account and allows you to turn your social media posts into a historical book. Super easy and fun!

Everyone needs stamps. You can find some fun stamp designs as well. Stamps.com allows you to upload your photo and turn it into a personalized stamp, making this suggesting a great way to use your photos. How great would it be to send the wedding thank yous to your guests using a custom stamp from your honeymoon?
