Be hands-on. Posting snapshots from your latest family vacation online is lazy and unimaginative. Your family memories deserve to be displayed more properly, in a format you’ve devised yourself.
Be your own editor. Be smart when picking photos and laying them out on the page. First, correct the color and contrast, and crop any photos that need it. Pick the “strongest and supplement them with several smaller snapshots.” Don’t try to squeeze too many on one page.
Keep it basic. A “simple black border—or none at all—allows the photos to tell the story.” Opt for plain backgrounds and simple themes when picking a template. “Don’t let design compete with your photos.”
Make room for mementos. Be sure to include “ticket stubs, menus, and other souvenirs” you picked up during your travels. These will “complement the captions and offer context to your photos.”
