Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with a layout grid, part of Designing a Photo Book.
If you are designing the pages of your photo book rather then using a template. …You might consider the use of a layout grid to help you make decisions about …image placement and as a way to organize multiple images on the same page. …If you're comfortable with using InDesign, you can use its Create Guide …feature to divide either your whole page. Or the image area of your page into a …series of rows and columns. These rows and columns, make up great fields.…
Each of which is surrounded by a gutter. With care and practice, you can create …layout grids that allow for easy proportional scaling of your images. …That insure that any white space on your page is used in an active way that …enhances the design. And insures the spacing between the …images remains consistent. For more information about designing with …grids, I recommend you visit the excellent website, thegridsystem.org.…
