How to build a photo album the traditional way
Spend over an hour sorting your collection of photos: rank them, separate them into folders, rename each file to split up events, etc.
Import the photos into the software, displaying them by date/time.
Drag photos onto pages in small groups OR use an autotool to dump photos onto pages strictly by date/time
All your available layout options in one convenient view
How it works Apply photos to your page – drag-and-drop, use album wizard or timeline mode, or use the layout randomizer – however you prefer to create your pages. Click on the new layout preview icon over your workspace – a sidebar window will appear to show you all available layout options for the current number of images on your canvas.
To apply a layout to your page, click on it – it’s as simple as that.
Best yet, the layouts are previewed with your photos in place. You’ll even see your higher ranks photos in larger frames. The layouts will change to show you the right amount of frames – add another photo
How it works If you need to add a few more images to your project, there’s no need to go back to the Photo tab to add them to your collection.
You can drag new images directly from your computer’s file manager to a layout. Once on your page, the images will automatically be added to your collection. There’s no need to navigate through multi-levels of folders to get to that one special photo missed in your first pass. This is an ideal method to access custom collections of decorations that you may have on your system. Keep your file manager opened, then drag your background textures and personal clipart onto your pages
Consistency is the key to professional photo album design. Memento Pro lets you build photo albums with consistent margins, printer’s guidelines and inter-image spacing, without limiting your ability to customize your pages.
When you start an album, choose from among preset product sizes that will set your margins, safe and bleed guidelines for all pages. Apply custom margins to the top, bottom, edge and gutter of your pages to achieve a personalized look. Once you apply photos into a layout on your pages, the layouts will respect your margins and guidelines. There’s no need to individually position photos on your page. Measured application of guidelines on all pages ensures ensures consistent results across your pages, avoiding
The trend towards minimalist photo albums has not wained in the past years. Pro-photographers seek to highlight their imaging skills rather than cluttering their pages with scrapbook-style arrangements. However, an elegant decoration or two applied thematically to your albums can truly make them stand out.
While some picture album software includes a hodge-podge of graphics often sold as add-on packs, Memento Pro includes a select and unique collection of decorations that respond with your styling choices. Located in the Photo Collection area, choose among several dozen classic, elegant embellishments for your pages. Should you apply a new style preset to your page, the decorations will automatically update to your match the color scheme of your page.
