    I did a wedding in May and told the client I would do an 8x8 and 6x6 album for her.

    The only problem is I have actually never done one before. I didn't think it would be that hard but it is turning out to be that way. I said it would be custom designed and while I could do it, I'm not sure where to get started.

    There are pre-designed templates available for purchase on WHCC's website and usually are around $230.

    The biggest issue I have is the layout. I'm not sure how to create white boxes to put the photos in. I could use the pencil tool and draw a white box to put the picture in, but I'd have to do that every single time.

    It's been 2 months and I haven't even started on it yet. I feel like if I start it and get the hang of designing it, it won't be an issue, I just have to start!

    DO NOT OFFER THAT WHICH YOU CAN'T OR DON'T KNOW HOW TO SUPPLY, PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS WORLDWIDE ARE FEELING THE PINCH AND IDIOTS LIKE YOURSELF AREN'T ABLE OR EQUIPPED TO DO THE WORK THEY OFFER, LEARN THE GAME BEFORE YOU TAKE THE JOB.

    Why would you have to do it every time?

    Just save it and use it as a template...

    Not really sure what the best way to make it would be, but once you figure that out - save it.

    edit - Buy a template, or make your own. I would think the best way would be to put the grid (like a white page with 4 openings) on a transparent background. Once you have that - open it up as a layer, and put the pictures under it.


    I also think it was a mistake to offer services that you didn't really know how to do, but whatever. Make the template, make the album.

    2 months and you haven't started yet? When are they expecting it to be done?

    While I agree with it too, Flash Harry can chill out. That was uncalled for. You can go elsewhere and belittle someone else

    I may just bjuy the template and be done with it. Apparently some people here don't have the faith in themselves I do, if I offer it, it will be done.

    The reason I said I would have to do it every time because the layout would be different. I guess I could have a black or white background and just move pictures in and out, saving as a jpeg for each spread.

    Thanks for your comments

    I hope this isn't too late, but you might look at thealbumcafe.com. They have several album templates designed for WHCC, and many for weddings. I believe all are under $40.

    Thank you for the enthusiasm. I did not ask the question to get rediculed, I asked for help. Thank you anyways for giving your 2 cents.

    I was tempted to buy the templates. There is nothing wrong with that but did end up designing my own.

    I appreciate the help from both of you. That tutorial was a big help and I may use it in the future.

    Just FWIW, I ended up designing both books in 3 hours and the bride was very pleased. She first thought she was getting an actual photo album she would put the pictures in. It made it better that she wasn't expecting what she got - I believe she was please, though.
