For those of us dabbling in the occasional Photo Book project, Embellishments seem like a new concept. In truth, Embellishments — those little designs and letters you can add into your book — are not much different than the buttons, brads, photo corners and colored tape we once added to homemade scrapbooks. (So addictive, remember?) If you still need an introduction to digital Embellishments, we’ll happily break it down for you in super-simple terms. Read on …
What are Embellishments?
Photo by Walgreens launched the Embellishments function this past spring. Embellishments are pre-designed shapes, labels, frames, sayings and doodles you can add to your Photo Book. They allow you to further personalize your story with graphic elements ranging in theme from wedding and family to Spring and Halloween.
Are Embellishments easy to use?
You don’t need to be a professional graphic artist to customize your book with Embellishments. (Whew.) But a few simple guidelines will help you streamline the process. Start by culling through and choosing your Embellishments in the style or colors of your book — sort of like an artist picks out a color palette before beginning a painting. To choose your Photo by Walgreens Embellishments, go to the Personalize Book function; click “get more” to add Embellishments to the left menu. If you change your mind, you can always add additional Embellishments at any time.
What do Embellishments look like?
Photo by Walgreens’ Embellishments print in the same high-resolution quality as your photographs. So they appear bright, crisp and seamlessly integrated on a page. You can place Embellishments to the side of your photos, on top of your photos or even partially behind them to create a layered effect. You can also rotate, resize, move and align Embellishments until you get the desired effect.
