Optimize Album Design in InDesign
Adobe InDesign revolutionized the art of creating photo albums for professional photographers. The state-of-the-art software suite made it possible for photographers to create stunning wedding albums and coffee table books without having to know code and markup language. Like all Adobe products, though, it has a steep learning curve - and it has some limitations that make the process harder than it needs to be.
There are thousands of templates available for album design InDesign, but having that kind of selection at your fingertips can complicate your life if you have to manually go through and try each one on for size. AlbumPro's Template Selector feature cuts down the time and complexity factor by doing the searching for you. Just pick the photos you want to use on the page, click on Template Selector, and AlbumPro goes to work finding all the appropriate templates that fit those photos. Choose the one you want, and the InDesign add-on will add it to the current spread and load your selected images into the placegun - and size everything to fit your album size.
Multiple Library Support
AlbumPro comes loaded with more than 1,000 templates to get you started designing albums with album design in InDesign, but it doesn't stop there. You can create and save your own templates, sort them into libraries so that the most applicable templates are always there. Even better, you can easily access all of your libraries from within the design screen so that you'll always have the perfect template for your designing needs.
How much time do you waste getting the spacing just right for all of the images on your album pages? Fiddling with grids and spacing measurements is a thing of the past with AlbumPro. Just select the frames you want to adjust to consistent spacing, click on "Set Spacing" and enter the correct values into the dialog box. That's it - the software takes care of the rest for you.
Exporting your albums from album design in InDesign is a complex process that involves sharpening and resizing images and getting all of the values right. With AlbumPro, you never have to worry about sharpening and resizing images for export again. Start the export feature, enter a few values and click OK, then watch AlbumPro perform its magic. Your original album file will remain untouched as the software creates a copy and resizes all of the images and templates to your selected size, applying the sharpening filter you select, and exports every spread as a JPEG file you can upload to your album vender for printing.
Those are just a few selected features that give you an idea of how AlbumPro can simplify the task of album design in InDesign. Try it for yourself - AlbumPro offers a free demo version that you can play with before you make the commitment to buy.
