Laying out the pages of a book in BookSmart is the heart of the bookmaking process.…It's simpler than you might think because BookSmart offers a wide variety of…pre-built page templates for you to use.…The starter layout that I'm using in this book was created by the Setup wizard…at the beginning of this chapter.…You can see that all the pages in the starter layout are the same.…They all have a large image and then a couple of text boxes.…I usually change out at least some of the pages that I get in the starter…layout, but I don't just change layouts for the sake of change.…
Each layout that I choose is selected for particular purpose in order to fit the…content that I want to put on a page.…For example, I may have a vertical image rather than horizontal image and so…I'll choose a layout that fits that sort of image. Or I'll change out a page in…order to signal a break in subject matter, like a new photo project or a new…chapter. Or I'll use the page layouts for visual interest and to enhance the flow…
