Sometimes I need the perfect photo for my layout, and my photography skills aren't up to the task. For this layout, I wanted a photo that captured the magic of Christmas, with an emphasis on Christmas lighting. Because the layout did not feature family members or personal mementos, I decided to use a stock photo. Stock photos can be a great way to enhance your story without the pressure of capturing the perfect photo. Some stock photo sites require payment, while other sites provide low-resolution photos for personal use. Just do an image search and see what turns up! After all, your photo is the central point of the layout, and the right photo can do most of your storytelling for you.
