Collage.com photo books are a fun way to commemorate any event. 


To start a book project, don't forget to first sign in so your project saves to your account as you design. 


You can make a new account anytime by clicking the person button in the upper righthand corner, clicking sign in, and filling out the form for a new account.


Once signed in, you can click New Project to start a new book or Edit on an existing book project to continue it. If you're starting a new project, you'll have to select the desired book, cover option, and size before you begin.



Now you're ready to start designing! 



Project Photos

When beginning a new photo book project, the upload box will pop up automatically, but you can also access the uploader at any time by clicking:


This will open the uploads window so you can upload new photos or access older uploads.



Click Upload Photos to add new photos. This will open the saved files on your computer so you can then select the photos that you want to upload and click Open.


Once your images are uploaded, your new images will automatically be selected with a blue checkmark for the project. Click the x in the upper-righthand corner to see them in the book.



You can remove unwanted photos by clicking the photo on the project and clicking the Delete icon or clicking the images in your uploads so they no longer have the blue checkmark. 

  • To learn more about our uploading options, please check here.


Once your images are uploaded, you can design your pages in two ways.



1) Automatically

Our automatic placement options let you move the photos onto your pages in multi-photo or single-photo layouts. The photos will be added in sequential order as uploaded rather than randomly. New pages will automatically be generated depending on the number of photos if Make Single Photo Layouts is selected on books only.


2) Manually

Selecting Manually Place Photos instead of the automatic options lets you design each page on your own. To do so, click into the page you want to design and select the photos you want on that page. 



To design a page

Whether you automatically or manually place your photos, we offer different ways to make your book unique. 


To edit each page, click on the page to zoom in. 

This brings the page into full view to edit. You'll find the design tools in the toolbar on the left-hand side of the project.

Moving and Deleting Pages/Images

Hovering over a page in the full book view brings up an (x) in the corner. Clicking that deletes the page. Clicking on the page and dragging allows for rearranging pages


Photo books have a minimum of 20 pages, and the book must end on an even-numbered page. If you delete a page with other pages behind it, the other pages will move forward.

To delete an image from the page, click into the page and then either drag the images off the page and back to the upload section to the left or click the image and click the Delete icon.


A photo deleted from one page will then go to the Unused Photos section to add to other pages. Click the page you wish to add it to and select it from the Unused Photos section.
