Square Photos

Can we make the photos in the layouts be longer in 1 direction when editing our layouts? Most pictures aren't square so it cuts off a lot of the picture when imposing the photos into the layouts because the photo boxes are square. Unless I am missing something I can't find anything else about this.

    Did you select square photos when creating a new layout?

    *Hi John,*

    Thanks for the fast reply. I am trying to edit an existing layout. Do I
    need to create a new one from scratch?

    Yes, you need to create a new layout and set the photo size type. You
    cannot mix photo square and widescreen photos on the same layout

    Ok, got it. Thank you. I was hoping to just be able to change it... I am
    using a MS Surface so editing is a challenge and more time consuming. lol

    I would be happy to help you ...
    If you have and use Skype, I can share my screen and show you how easy the Layout Editor is to use. I have done this with many users around the world. Just send a Contact Request in Skype to my user name ccuvideo and we can get connected.

    You CAN use a pre-designed layout to start with as long as you CLONE it then you can rename it and make changes/adjustments to the entire layout. Resizing the photo boxes and moving them.

    Let me know if you would like to Skype

    Additional note:
    You can not combine Square and Wide photo boxes in the same layout
