PastBook has launched a new collaborative Web photo album platform to help people keep track of shared memories between a group of people. These photo albums can then be printed out and given as a gift.

The launch of the Web-based tool keeps true to PastBook’s previous aim of promising to help you keep track of your memories across various social networks (again, with the option of gifting) but puts the focus on pooled photography from groups of friends.

“The flow is very simple and straightforward. Create a story, and invite by email or social networks relatives and friends to participate: you’ll be all able to add text and photos by direct upload or importing them from any social networks.
The result is a unique story to keep on-line or to bring off-line as a PDF or as a printed book,” PastBook said.

The shared photo album feature is only available via the Web for now, but PastBook is working on Android and iOS apps as we speak.

The product joins an already crowded photo marketplace, and follows an announcement from Facebook in August that it was rolling out shared photo albums.

To make it a double-whammy of an announcement, PastBook also revealed it had secured an undisclosed sum of follow-on funding, constituting a bridge round to Series A.
