Photo Books Design Tips

Knowing some tips in the arts and design field can be very useful when it comes to creating your photo book. Below we will look at some simple ideas that can really help improve the look of your photo book.

When it comes to grouping photos for your photo book, many people will group them chronologically, but doing it this way it can really make your photo book not flow well. It is recommended that you should group your photos by subject matter or theme, doing it this way will help ensure your photo book is kept looking unified and not all over the place. If you are using a photo book software kit, it will allow you to decide which page should face each other ensuring that once again it follows the correct theme and is unified. To add a bit of extra flare to your photo book you can always add some colour to the background of your photos or even change the colour of your photos to black and white to suit a particular theme.

It is also important to have a focal point on each page of your photo book. When taking photos think about your photo book and what you want in it and take some special photos so they can be the focal point in your photo book. If you have a lot of group photos try and put some close ups of individuals to give it a real artistic feel. If you tend to focus on one particular subject such as people or pets, try to mix it up a little in your photo book by including pictures of the environment or landscapes.

If you want interesting results for your photo book, use collage techniques. Collage techniques are ideal if you have a large amount of photos that you want to include in your photo book. You can mix your photo book up by having individual photos and then one or two pages as collages. Photos books are a personal thing, so design something that suits you best but be open to new ideas.
