“D is for Dominant Photo” – A Checklist for Placing Them in Your Layout

atozpostcards_dfrontThink of a dominant photo as the school bully: it’s big, places itself in center, and gets all the attention. On your spread, it should be:

  • The first picture placed on the layout
  • Off-center, if it crosses the gutter (pictures split in half are not visually appealing)
  • Two to two and half times larger than any other photo on the spread
  • A powerful, story-telling photo that makes readers say “Wow!”
