How many photos do you have per page? Varies with page size?

Just curious, how many photos do you usually scrap on a page? If you use a certain number, is it because it looks the best, or because it's the optimal number to 'tell a story'? Guess it varies with the size of the page. I'm assuming in this question that you use 12" by 12" paper as background. If you don't use this size, then what other sizes do you use and how many photos then? For me, I've used mainly 12"by12" paper and thus scrap about three of four 3R photos per page. Alternatively, i guess a 5R or 6R photo would look nice by itself? Or is it possible for a 4R photos to look nice by itself, with many embellishments?

Yes that makes sense. For a 12" square, guess one large pix looks nice if there are a lot of embellishments, like prima flowers or cut-outs. I've tried to squeeze 4 pictures into one page, but it looks kinda cluttered esp if they are all 4R. 3 4R pictures arranged diagonally looks nice, but can be boring if repeated throughout the album.

Thanks for the best response. Another idea I had for putting more than 2-3 pictures on a page, is using shape cutters and making all your pictures smaller and different shapes. I have an oval, a circle and a heart shape cutter. I find I use the oval one the most. It cuts ovals in 5 different sizes from small to large.

Usually I group things together as we all must do so it depends on how many photos are needed in the group. So one group might take several pages but you end up with only one or two for the final set in the series. But usually about 3 or 4.

Hmm... that is really subjective. This is really dependent on the size of the page you are working on. The larger it is, the more smaller pictures you can squeeze into one page without having to use a magnifying glass to view them. ;p It all depends on the pictures that you are selecting for your project too, doesn't it? Is it for a wedding? Is it for a company event? Is it for a coffee table book? Is it for a company bulletin board? Depending on how you want to tell the story, the number of pictures and the quality of the pictures for selection will come naturally.
