Place your photos against bold color backgrounds to make your favorite Teacher memories pop.

This design is ideal when adding a smaller selection of different photos (so you can change the size and layout).

Step 2: Select the Best Teacher Photo Book Layout For Your Photos

Decide on the best photo layouts for your book and add photos. Read our tips below to mix and match photo book layouts.

Choose from a wide range of pre-built photo book designs

Using our intuitive photobook builder, you can easily amend the pre-defined layouts in your chosen book design using our auto shuffle functionality. By dragging, dropping and deleting your chosen photos, you will also be able to enlarge, shrink and rotate them as well.

Drag and drop functionality makes it easy to customize your photo book

Alter the standard picture layout, add text and also fun embellishments. Any messages from students can be included here along with their special pictures to make the photo book truly personal.

Change the front cover of your photo book easily with Snapfish photo book editing tools

You are also able to completely delete a photo book page design or elements in the design and add your own spin to the look of your book. Changing the font and color and also the way the text is presented is easy to do in the Snapfish Photo Book Builder. Just click on the yellow ‘Tips’ lightbulb at the top of the screen for easy to follow instructions.

Use our WYSIWYG online photo book builder to change the designs to suit

In the example above, both photo book designs have similar front covers, but the second image shows how you can customize the pre-built layout to suit your style. Here, we deleted the ‘Dad’ embellishment from the pre-built ‘Bold Shapes’ photo book template and added a text box using the fun ‘Linotype Cutter’ font to spell out “Thank You, Mrs Smith”.

You can also swap out the photo placements in your book designs to showcase one image across the double page spread, or even just to shuffle the photo locations on the page to create more of a collage feel in your photo book.

You can change the page designs throughout your photo book, in terms of color, layout, picture sizes and even background images. All of this can be done by clicking the ‘page option’ button at the top of the photo builder and selecting whether you want to apply the change to one or all of the pages. You can also drag and drop the pages to re-order them easily, as well as add/delete pages.

Step 3: Embellish Your Photo Book Design With Text And Clip Art Stickers

You can even add extra text and embellishments and change backgrounds to suit your style. You’ll find many of our favorite embellishments under Embellishments > School.
