How to edit or resize your images
When putting together your photo book, the chances are that your image library will contain a massive variety of photos in different sizes and differing levels of quality. This means that you will want to resize, edit, and crop your images to make sure every photo looks its best. Thankfully, resizing and editing your favourite pictures in your next photo book project is a breeze with our online editor.
Once your image is uploaded, click on the image to add it to the page. Play with the sizing or crop your picture by using the pointers on its side. You can adjust a cropped image by simply clicking in the middle of the image and dragging the picture to adjust the crop to the best fit.
