The original purpose of photo boxes is to allow the user to insert photos easily in to the program, so I am going to start with some of the basic functions of photo boxes.
When you insert a photo Box into your layout it always starts out as a square. You can enlarge the square and turn it into a rectangle.
Check out this super simple way to add pizazz to your page.
Here is my initial scrapbook layout.
I like it the way it is, but I started to play with the tabs and discovered that I can turn the rectangles into ovals (if you have a square it will turn into a circle)
In the Design Center on the right of your screen is an option called Photo Shape (see red circle).
Click it once.
And Ta Da !!!!!!! it will change the shape from rectangle to oval or square to circle.
I like the ovals. I think it gives it a more "handmade" look.
Give it a try!! Thanks for looking.
