Explore your design in 3D with Augmented Reality (AR)

Created at

Our augmented reality (AR) feature lets you see how your photobooks or photobooklets will look in your home environment. You'll see a 3D-rendered version of your book that you can check from all angles – a useful final check before printing.

The feature is currently only available on iOS devices, but we're working to bring this to Android too.


Tip Make sure your Popsa app is running the latest version. Check the App Store for updates if you don’t see the option in your app.
