Now that your album is set up and your images have been imported, sometimes you’re in a time crunch and you just need to get an album out the door, or maybe you want to make a quick rough draft. That is what the Auto-Design was built for.
Auto Design Feature Options
The feature will give you a suggestion of how many pages to design and how many of your photos to use. You can adjust this if needed, as most books require a specific increment of pages.
Design Style: Choose whether you are creating a traditional album or a signing book
Aspect Ratios: Choose between Mixed, 3:2 Accent Images, 3:2 All Images, Orginal Accent Images, or to Match the Original aspect ratios when the images are placed
Available Images: Choose between your Entire Collection of images or Filtered Images currently in the Image Well
The design overview lets you know what will be used in the book, and how many image tags will be taken into account. If it looks right, click Design!
If you love the design, you are good to go. If you want to move any images around, just click and drag the image wherever you want. Want a new look for a page? Choose from hundreds of designs in our patented Quick Design Picker.
You followed the instructions perfectly, hit "Design" and ended up with a crazy looking album. Don't worry, you didn't do anything wrong. Because Auto-Design sorts by time stamp, this will happen if the images are either A. Very far apart in date-as if your camera had a malfunction during the event and a few years or months, or B. Have exactly the same date and time- such as if they were downloaded as an album off of the internet.
You'll need to re-upload the photos from their original source in order to correct the metadata within each image file. If they were downloaded from an internet source, you'll need to download them individually.
