Change layouts

Each page contains a photo in one of three layouts: Fill, Square, and Original. These will be described in detail below.

To change the layout of a photo on a single page

  1. Tap on any page in the Arrange Pages screen.
  2. In the Editing Page screen tap on the Layout tool
  3. Choose one of the three layout options in the tray at the bottom: Fill, Square and Original.
    • Fill covers the entire page with the photo. This is called “full bleed” in printer-speak. Because the pages of the book are square, the photo is center, square cropped. This layout is the default option for all pages after you’ve first selected photos.
      Note: you may want to tap the photo and zoom, crop or reposition to show the important parts of the photo. Tap or click here to learn more.


    • Square shows a centered, square crop of your image with a margin.


    • Original shows the original aspect ratio of the image with a margin. That means you would see the whole photo on the page, regardless if it is landscape, portrait, panoramic, square, or any custom crop size.

  1.    Press Done and your change shows up in the book in the Arrange Pages screen.

 

To change the layout of photos on all pages in your book:
Rather than change the layout of the photo on each page individually you can change them all at once.

  1. In the Arrange Pages screen, press the overflow menu button in the top left. 
  2. Choose the Change Page Layout menu option
  3. Choose the desired layout

    • Fill covers the entire page with the photo. This is called “full bleed” in printer-speak. Because the pages of the book are square, the photo is center, square cropped. This layout is the default option for all pages after you’ve first selected photos.
      Note: you may want to tap the photo and zoom, crop or reposition to show the important parts of the photo. Tap or click here to learn more.

    • Square shows a center, square crop of your image with a margin.

    • Original shows the original aspect ratio of the image with a margin. That means you would see the whole photo on the page, regardless if it is landscape, portrait, panoramic, square, or any custom crop size.

  4. All pages will be updated with the new layout.
    Please note: It may take a few minutes while the pages are reprocessed. You can’t preview the book until this has finished.
