How do I edit my Photo Book?
When you begin your Photo Book, our site will pre-populate a book for you with your images based on the months you've chosen to print!
It will be a mix of layouts that you can adjust to your liking! Click on the white area of the page you'd like to edit, and our Design menu will open on the left hand side of your page, where you can choose from different layouts and background colors!
The images you choose in the layout can be re-centered to how you like them. If you click into an image, so the orange square appears around the box, you can drag the photo to be centered on the area of the image you prefer. You can drag the images left or right, or up or down, depending on what you need!
Be sure to click 'Save' after you've made adjustments to your photo arrangements so your draft stays up to date with your work!
Can I include captions from photos in my journal within the Photo Book itself?
Yes! Your captions will import into our Photo Book creator for you! If you choose the 1 Photo layout design, the caption for that photo will automatically add from your journal to your Photo Book draft!
Can I change the photos that show on the calendar layout when using them in a Photo Book?
The calendar view and photos that are available when creating your Photo Book come directly from your journal. This means that any calendar views you choose to display in your album, will be the same as what you'd see when logging into Tinybeans.
If you want to change which photo is shown on a calendar day, you can change this through your journal itself.
Can I make changes to a Photo Book I've just ordered?
Once you have submitted your new Photo Book, your order is sent directly to the printer and we cannot make any changes at this point. We know how important it is that people receive their orders and gifts as quickly as possible, and because of this, there is no lag time between an order submitted and sent to the printer for production! Be sure to review your book thoroughly before you finish the payment process to ensure your book is exactly as you like it!
