Start the new year with your very own personalized Photobook Planner. And while you are at it, how about creating these personalized planners as gifts for your loved ones too? We will be sharing with you some tips on how to make your own photobook planner using our Photobook Designer (when you go to our website, please be sure to select your country of residence before downloading the Photobook Designer).
Now, before you start gather your best photos you’d like to include in the Photobook Planner – it can be your vacation photos, your pet’s photos, your family photos or even food photography! It would also be ideal to gather some words of wisdom or quotes to be inserted in your Photobook Planner. Once you have all these, its time to start!
Tip 1 : Choosing A Photobook Planner Size
We recommend choosing the 6” x 8”Small Landscape or 8 “ x 8” Small Square Imagewrap Hardcover or Softcover photo books. These book styles and sizes are very durable and are handy to carry around.
Tip 2 : Plan Your Photobook Planner
In most cases, you’ll want a planner that divides the year by each month. Make one spread (2 pages) for one month – so you’ll instantly have 24 pages for each month of the year.
Tip 3 : Introduction Pages
On your first page, give your planner a name. For example “Julia’s Fabulous Year: 2013”. You can include write-ups and your favourite images in the first few pages of the Photobook.
Tip 4 : Creating the months & days format
With double facing pages, on the left include a favourite photo as a full spread and on the right create small shaped boxes and line them seven per row (seven days per week). Insert a text box within each box shape and insert the number for the day. Include a title for the page such as the name of the month. Quick tip: save your spread as a page layout to use on your pages to come!
Tip 5 : Alternate the months pages with “Highlights”
Between the months, you can add in “Highlights” such as Notes, Photo Feature and Quotes.
