Now that the album is set up and the images have been imported, it's time for a rough draft of the album. This is when the Auto-Design shines.
Auto Design Feature Options
The feature makes a suggestion of how many pages to design and how many photos to use. Simply adjust this if needed, as most books require a specific increment of pages.
Design Style: Choose whether to create 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 the Entire Collection of images or Filtered Images currently in the Image Well
The design overview will say what will be used in the book, and how many image tags will be taken into account. If it looks right, click Design!
If the design works well, that's it. To move any images around, just click and drag the image. Want a new look for a page? Choose from hundreds of designs in the patented Quick Design Picker.
Auto Design by File Name
You can also choose to Auto Design by file name.
To set your Auto Design to design by filename, click Auto Design, then in the Image Order drop-down menu, choose to design by Filename. Click Design and you are all set!
Pro Tip: **Remember to number your images using your total number of images and 0's as placeholders. For instance, if you have 300 images in your project, number your images 001, 002, 003...010, 011...100, 101, etc. This will ensure your images stay in the correct order!**
