Page Templates

This table shows the professionally designed page layout templates that are available in Elegant Compact PhotoBooks. They are empty, as they would be before you create your photobook. Any template can be used on any page as often as required.

Photos are dragged and dropped onto the gray areas on the templates. Each gray area is intended for a photo and if a one is not placed there it will show up as white when the photobook is printed.

  • Fonts

    The default font when you open the templates is Times New Roman but this can be changed. The font size is set to ensure a uniform typography throughout the book. The sizes are industry standard and easy to read.

    The title page font size is 48 point..

    Pages with title and text have 32 point titles and 12 point in the main text areas.

    Large blocks of text and full text pages are in 12 point.

  • Images

    Photos and images are dragged and dropped onto the desired space in the template and once there they can be enlarged (zoomed) and moved within the space to provide the best effect. For more information about this see Adjusting Photos.
