Photo size can be adjusted in many ways. 

Shuffle and Manual Arrangement

There is a shuffle button in the upper right-hand corner of most projects (shuffle is only available in the individual page view for books, cards, and calendars).

Clicking it shuffles all the photos. You can click it as many times as desired until you get an orientation you like. Note: if working with a designed template, the photos will shuffle but the overall design will remain the same. 

You can then customize further by clicking and dragging your photos around the project until you have a look you love.

Swapping Positions

If you want to make a certain photo bigger, you can click and drag the photo you want bigger to the spot where the current large photo is. 

In the example above, a dog and a cat looking away from the camera is swapped with the smaller photo to make the desired photo larger.

Note: this is not always a seamless transition. Photos of differing dimensions will cause a greater shuffle if trying to swap. For example, swapping a landscape image with a portrait style will cause more shuffling in the entire project. The same is true for swapping a square photo with a rectangle. 

Resizing Individual Photos

If you like your photo placement but want to adjust the sizing of the photo in the spot it's in, select the photo. An outline with blue circles will appear around the selected photos. Click and drag the blue circles to make the photo bigger or smaller in the position it is in. 

Note: the rest of the photos may shuffle to make room for the new size. 

If working with a preset layout, the photo slots themselves can be adjusted by clicking on the photo slot and using the blue bars to drag in and out for resizing.  This will resize all the photos in the same line to retain the arrangement of the selected layout.

If using a designed template, the photo slots cannot be adjusted for size, though you can still reposition the photos by clicking and dragging them to different photo slots.
