Hello everyone, welcome back! My name is Katelyn and I am sharing with you some tips on how to make poorly printed photos work for you. I have a whole process video explaining all of the details as well, so be sure to check that out. This layout includes three photos that are very, very similar. Which helps tell the story. I hope you enjoy!
Some times we get photos from our home printers or from third party printing sites that didn't come out the way we anticipated. The photo in my example was not processed correctly on the right hand side which you can see in the beginning of the video. However, I figured that instead of requesting a new one and jumping through hoops that I could make it work. Please enjoy the process video below.
I created two cluster groups to help balance the page. One is over the poorly printed part of the photo and the other is on the opposite side. Balancing your page is key for an aesthetically pleasing layout! All of the products used in this project are mentioned in the video, but if you have questions, I would be happy to answer them.
The style of this layout was inspired by Kira Ness who uses the folding paper technique that I used here. Overall, this page is simple and easy way to get multiple photos on to a 12x12 layout. I know that the trends are aimed towards using fewer photos per layout, but hopefully this inspires you to put a couple more on your next one.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on how to use those wonky processed photos. Thanks for stopping by!
