Layout styling tips

Creating a photobook is an art. That’s why you need to read our Top 5 Layout Styling Tips to Make Your Photobook Pages Pop! It’s not just about selecting photos; it’s about presenting them in an engaging way. While the pictures themselves are crucial, the way you layout your pages can make or break your photobook. Here are the top 5 layout styling tips to make your photobook pages pop!

1. Play with Symmetry and Asymmetry

Symmetry can be soothing to the eye, but asymmetry can create dynamism on the page. Mix symmetric and asymmetric layouts throughout your photobook. For instance, you can use a symmetrical layout for a serene landscape photo, while an asymmetrical layout might be more engaging for action shots.

2. Create Focal Points

Every page should have a focal point. This is the part of the page that first catches the eye. Use size, position, or color to make one or two photos on each page stand out. This will help to draw the viewer into the page and make them want to explore the rest of the pictures.

3. Use Borders and Margins Wisely

Borders and margins are not just spaces; they can be used creatively to frame your photos. Thin borders can give a modern look, while thick ones might evoke a classic feel. Also, play with colored borders that complement the pictures. Leave some white space to let the page breathe and to avoid making it look too cluttered.

4. Experiment with Picture Orientation

Don’t just stick with horizontal or vertical photos. Mix them! Rotate some images, play with angles, or even have some photos slightly overlap. This can add depth and interest to your pages. However, be careful not to overdo it as it can become distracting if not done tastefully.

5. Incorporate Texts and Captions Elegantly

Texts and captions are not just for telling the story; they can be part of the design. Use fonts that complement the mood of your photos. For instance, a playful font for a family vacation, or a sleek one for a professional portfolio. Place the text in a way that doesn’t overshadow the photos but is still easily readable.

And there you have it, five layout styling tips that can take your photobook from ordinary to extraordinary. Keep in mind that while it’s good to be creative, the photos should always be the stars of the show. Get shopping and start creating today!

    Are you able to give examples for each of the 5 points. I have been using your books for many many years. Unfortunately Covid-19 hit and we haven’t been overseas since 2019.
    Fortunately we are going overseas in September this year and hopefully you will have this 30 page special again.
