Idea pages will make you look like a design genius with just one click.
I’m in love with the All New Custom Path because it lets me make make my photo books exactly the way I want. I can move and re-size text and photos, add fun embellishments, and choose from an amazing selection of backgrounds and layouts so that my book looks special – like no one else’s.
I’ve completed my sixth All New Custom Path book (did I mention I’m addicted?), and with this latest one I’ve discovered an incredibly useful tool. Idea pages.
What? You haven’t tried idea pages? Stop right there! Don’t edit another page in your photo book until I introduce you to this brilliant resource.
Idea pages are fully designed with beautiful embellishments, perfectly placed text samples, and playful layouts. They give you a unique creative look without all the fuss. You can use them as-is or add tweaks of your own. And here’s why you’ll love with them. They will make you look like a design genius with one click.

2. Select your idea page – after your photos are in place, go to the “Idea Pages” tab on the left side of your screen and click the idea page of your choice
3. Transform your page – your photo book page will immediately transform into that design. Instant genius!
