Change to Black-and-White
Design by Sheri Reguly
Squeeze extra photos on your page by reducing them and converting them to black-and-white. These pint-size prints will add to the story but won't distract from the larger focal photo. Place a large block of patterned paper on your page to balance the large photo. Arrange a smaller photo, embellishments, and journaling on top.
Editor's Tip: Create a visual triangle with the placement of your three small photos. This helps direct the eye and keeps your design balanced.
