Sometimes, when I’m looking for a template I find one that either fits my journaling or fits my photos but not both! The Preserved Set by Sara Gleason has lots of room for journaling on the templates. But the one that caught my eye for the length of my story had no room for a photo! So, time to adjust.
The photo I wanted to use was taken with my DSLR and is quite large. When I pulled it onto the template, the photo automatically resized to fit the longest dimension. I changed the background to grey so you could see the adjustment. I like this feature normally since I don’t often do full size photos.
On this page, that wasn’t the look I wanted at all, so I deleted the photo on the template, then pulled the photo into photoshop, and added it to the template. There are many ways to have the photo show up in full size, this is just the one I chose. Now the previous photoless template has a large photo on the page. The focus of the template remains the story, with lots of journaling room. But, by adjusting the template slightly, I was also able to highlight a photo from the class I journaled about.
