How to Make a Family Coloring Book

really-color-petAre your kids old enough to color? Many kids find coloring to be a fun way to pass the time. It also helps children to develop their small motor skills. Adults can discover that the act of coloring is relaxing. A website called ReallyColor can help you make a family coloring book.

ReallyColor can turn your family photos into coloring pages. You pick the photos you want to use. You can create individual coloring sheets – or have ReallyColor put your coloring pages into a unique coloring book for, and about, your family.

ReallyColor uses a patented technology that allows you to turn photos into coloring pages. The pages are 8.5” x 11”. It’s a nice size for a coloring book.

First, figure out which family photos you want to include in a family coloring book. Select some of the best photos that were taken while you and your family were on vacation. Pick one special photo of each individual family member. Include photos of grandparents and other extended family.

You can make as many coloring pages as you want for free (and see the preview). You will need to buy one photo credit to keep the high-quality PDF of the coloring page that ReallyColor makes from your photo.

Send an image of one of your photos to ReallyColor by emailing it to them. They will convert it into a line drawing (similar to what you would expect to see in a coloring book.) The converted image is sent back to you in your email. You can print out as many copies of it as you want.

Ideally, you should send photos that are originals with good lighting and high resolution. Panoramic shots should be avoided. They won’t fit nicely into a coloring page!

ReallyColor does not store your images or completed coloring pages. That’s something to be aware of before you delete the email that has your coloring page in it. ReallyColor strongly recommends that after you use a credit to complete a page, you open it right there and save it just in case.

To make a family coloring book, all you have to do is upload your ReallyColor coloring page PDFs. ReallyColor will build your book and personalize your cover. They will ship your coloring books to you. Your family coloring book can have anywhere from 12 to 24 pages. It is possible to order bulk quantities of your family coloring book if you want to.
