How to add photos to a design

Uma -

Once you've found a design you'd like to personalize, you can add your photos one of two ways: Auto-fill or drag and drop.

Accepted file formats for photos are .jpg and .bmp. 

To learn more about uploading photos into the Photo Well, please see our article:  How to add photos to the Photo Well

 

Auto-fill

This is a great, time-saving feature that will auto-populate all of the photos in your Photo Well in the order you uploaded them. We recommend loading your photos into the Photo Well in the order you wish them to appear in the design prior to using this feature.

To learn how to rearrange photos/videos in your Photo Well, please see our article: How do I rearrange or move photos around in the Smilebox Photo Well?

Please note: At this time, there is no way to transfer your photos with captions from one design to another, however using the Auto-fill feature may speed up the process if you'd like to switch designs.

This option should appear automatically when you click "Personalize" on a design. Just click on "Yes, Auto-fill" to automatically fill in your photos.

Time saving tip

We recommend loading your photos into the Photo Well in the order you wish them to appear in the design, prior to using this feature.

If you decline the Auto-fill feature but change your mind later, you can always exit the design and start a new one by selecting it from the Design Catalog and the Auto-fill feature will appear.

 

Drag and drop

To add your photos to your design, simply click on a photo in the Photo Well and drag it to the photo frame. This will work in "Slide View" and "Sorter View" (see below).
