Guidelines to design your own photobooks

Creating a photobook is a great way to transform your photo memories into a narrative that can be shared with other people. Whether you want to preserve important milestones, create a story about your family history or use a photobook as a smart way to display your creative work, RapidStudio can help you to design and print them.

Here are the guidelines to design your own photobook:
  • Organise Your Photos
    Before you start playing around with online tools and templates, organise your photos. Put the photos that you want to use in a specific folder so that you don’t have to search around for images when you start creating your photobook.
  • Choose an Online Tool
    RapidStudio’s design tools are not only free, but you can also use it offline. There are pre-designed templates and you can design your own template if you want to. For people who aren’t graphic designers, this is a great option. Start designing your own photobook on our website now. RapidStudio offers free tools for designing both online and offline.
  • Highlight Your Favourite Photos
    You will likely want to draw more attention to some photos than others. Experiment with the templates and photo sizes until you have a layout that you are happy with. Also include captions, quotes or snippets of information where necessary.
  • Choose the Right Format
    You can choose between a square, landscape orientation or a portrait orientation. While a square book may appear more modern, a standard portrait might be best if you have many vertical photos or portraits. A landscape orientation can mean longer photographic perspectives.
  • Order Prints
    Once you are happy with your photobook design, you can order prints with the click of a button from RapidStudio. We use state-of-the-art printing technology to ensure a perfect job - every time!

In this tutorial I will be explaining how to create a collage of pictures on a page, as it covers most of the alignment and spacing topics.
I hope this tutorial will help you realise your design intent more accurately and efficiently.
You will probably start with a page layout something similar to this

We are going to start with top row of pictures. The following explanation only refers to the top row, we will be dealing with the rest of the images a bit later.
First of all we need to move the pictures next to each other horizontally to see if they will fit in the "Safe Area" of the page. In this example the pictures are too wide and overlap the safe area horizontally. Please note that you will have to leave a decent amount of space between the safe …
