If you decide that the initial theme you selected isn't right for you, you can easily modify it before you begin the project in earnest. I'll go ahead and cancel the order page here and I'm looking at the theme itself. Up at the top here, I have a button that allows me to change the theme. Doing so will take me back to the main selection window, and I could go ahead and scroll through. I'm going to go with the Picture Book option, which is going to put more pictures on the individual page. Looking at those two sizes, I'm not sure which one I want to use, but I think I will go with the more traditional 8.5 x 11.
I'm going to stick with the White theme here just because I'm looking for a clean minimalist look. And I'll click Apply. In doing so, you see the pages have been laid out. Now, there's lot of choices we can make here to adjust the number of pages in the book, but that looks pretty good. I now have a pretty good idea of how this book is going to look, and it will be easy to change the layout for the individual pages. Now that I've got my initial design done, I'm going to step forward and try to create a new book.
