Long Tall Photos
A tall photo attracts the eye simply because you don't often see it. These layouts are easy to make - there's a photo layout for four tall photos included in the MyMemories progrram.
A series of photos can be used to suggest movement or progress. Very slow progress in the case of me painting the fence! You'll see that in the first two examples I'm not looking in the same direction in all the photos. I think this makes the page more interesting and suggests more movement.
And doing something much more daring ...
Swimming in the sea from the Pestana Palms hotel in Madeira. They thoughtfully provide a ladder - and the waves thoughtfully wash over the bathing platform just as you're trying to get on the ladder, even more so when you're trying to get OUT of the sea.
Waves and bikini girl from Bella Gypsy's ItsyBitsyTeenieWeenie. Whale and Fish from The Ettes' Some Beach Somewhere.
Splitting a Photo Into Four
This was a photo of my Dad, my two brothers and John at a friend's wedding. I added the original photo so you could see it was originally one photo. Kit is Connie Prince's Limelight. Here we're not trying to suggest movement - in fact the boys are trapped by the camera.
