Creating a story of events for a wedding, vacation or family reunion is a fun way to reminisce on those feel-good moments that are sure to keep you smiling all year long.

How To: Create a photo folder for each category in your story to save time sifting through images. To create a Table of Contents, select a “Text Only” page layout. Experiment with font pairings that fit with your story or theme.
