Rule Of Thumb For How Many Photos Per 12X12 Pg
Posted 22 October 2012 - 07:37 PM
I like working on 12x12 sized pages, but have yet to actually print anything out; my stuff so far is posted on-line for friends and family. Anyway, I'd like to put together a family tree type of book and print it out for family members and am wondering what any of you have found to be the maximum number of pictures you like to put on a page. I will admit to having a very hard time eliminating any pictures, but know that I must. Right now I have the last page or two of my on-line books where I do a college type of thing, but usually don't go more than 6 or 7 photos per page (mind you that's not for every page, that's just the max if I put more photos on a page). When I do the 6/7 on a page, I usually have one or two larger the remaining ones about the same size and a little smaller.
I look forward to any suggestions or comments you want to share.

Nica, Thanks for sharing the templates, I'm on my way to looking at those.
Laurel, I can relate to your using odd number of pictures; I do the exact same thing when I plant flower groupings, it's visually more pleasing. Funny how I didn't think of that for pictures.
A-M, Thanks for sharing the Family Tree kit idea; I will be taking a look at that.
Thanks again, ALL!

As I read your first post, I thought of this collection right away!
The number of photos I use on a layout depends on the topic I'm scrapping. Events usually have more photos then, say, a candid shot of my dd or a pet.
