Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Changing page layouts, part of Creating Photo Books with Blurb.
When you begin a new book in Bookify, it always starts out with an initial page…layout. That's called the starter layout, but you're not stuck with that starter…layout. You can change the layout of any page in a Bookify Book at any time,…whether or not you've already added a photo to that page.…In this case, every page in my book started out with a horizontal image…container in the center of the page, like this.…By the way, these image containers don't print.…So if I were to print the book right now, I'll show you what this spread would look like.…It would be completely blank.…
Those gray boxes wouldn't show.…I'll click Edit Book to go back to the editing workspace.…So, let's say that I want to put a vertical image on the right hand page.…I know it's not going to look very good in this big horizontal image container.…So to change that out, I'll go to the Choose Layout icon beneath that page and click.…Here I see two rows of potential page layouts.…This row is primarily text-based layouts.…Since this is a photo book, I'm more interested in the photo-based layouts up here.…
