      If you do not need to print on a spread (photos do not go from one page to another), then simply by analogy.
      If two pages flow into one another, then there are many options. One of the easiest is to make a U-turn and then “cut” it in half, taking into account the departures.

      This is a complex philosophical question, which includes the selection of photographs, the selection of themes and a long enough persistent picking in Photoshop.

    When a program generates a collage, frames, joints, photos are placed automatically (at the discretion of the program itself)?

      Yes, but after the preliminary generation, you can swap the photos in places (just drag and drop with the mouse), and also “mix” the photos and their position again. The thickness of the joints and their color is regulated there.

    Laying out an album in PH is cruel. There are also special programs that simplify the process and save time. InDisign for example.

    Better - InDesign. Better, faster and easier - Smart Albums. The answer to the previous question, which of the photographers does not make up photobooks in Photoshop is practically no one who values ​​their time.

      CorelDraw would be good for this, but export to jpeg ... spoils the colors a lot, CorelDraw for a vector, alas, bitmap spoils for me very noticeably ...

    Why don't you do it in lightroom? As I understand it, this is your main tool. I uploaded, processed, built a collection and laid it out on a photo book.

    I use Smart Albums (my favorite!), I make photo books and collages for social networks there. It turns out minimalistic and neat, I hate vignettes and quirks. If you need to add text, then in Photoshop I then overlay it on the exported jeep, because for some reason Smart Albums randomly shifts the normally located text to the side. Lightroom works ugly with a photobook and loads the computer heavily. The indesign seemed a bit complicated for me. I saw how a professional layout designer in Korela did photobooks, but the file size turns out to be gigantic, inconvenient. In FSH, I have to work with ready-made templates for photo albums for schools (I hate it very much ...), it's very inconvenient.
