Feature Spotlight • Timeline

When you’re in a time crunch, the last thing you want to do is spend hours on album design. What if we told you it could be done in just a few clicks?

Use the timeline feature in SmartAlbums to quickly design a professional photo album

If you know the exact images you’ll be using in your album before you start building it, SmartAlbums’ Timeline feature makes the design process a breeze. Simply drop your images onto the Timeline and group them into mini stories by placing a “cut” between the images that are part of the same sequence. Each group of images will instantly become a two-page spread with automatic design and composition.

You can then go back and refine the design by choosing a different layout from our handcrafted templates, or use SmartAlbums’ powerful Designer View to manually customize and build your own template.
