So you might be thinking, okay I can do that! Then you sit down and notice that your photos are the wrong orientation to match the sketch. No problem! Check out our tips for modifying a sketch below:

  • Rotate the sketch to better suit your photos (this goes for borders, too!). This will turn horizontal photos into vertical ones and vertical photos into horizontal ones.
  • Eliminate a photo and add more embellishments/stickers or reverse it and add another photo where there was an embellishment cluster.
  • Crop your photos to better fit the sketch.
  • Use a photo space to journal more.
  • Remember, it’s only a sketch and it is to be used as a starting point for inspiration!

It’s simple to switch up a sketch to make it work for you!
