Photobook – What does the red line mean?

Have you ever wondered what the red line means that you see on every page in the photobook design software? It is visible when you create a calendar, but also on every page of a photobook, including the front and back cover.

This red line is an important line, don’t ignore it as your results may not be as expected if you do. The red line is to give you an indication of where we will try to cut all the pages to make sure they are all the same size.

If you are creating a full-page photo or spreading a photo over both both pages you need to make sure the photo goes over the red line. The same applies to any text you are adding to a page, for example a title at the top of a page needs to stay well within the red line to ensure it will be displayed as you intended.
