Hello,

This is driving me nuts so the solution must be simple. :)

I downloaded a few collage templates... and dragging pictures to the individual cells is pretty easy.. But how do I change the image in a cell? I keep deleting the entire cell then having to figure out what size it was and re-create it... then put a new image in it.

Isn't there any easier way to move images from cell to cell until I get the look I'm after?

When using a Custom Package layout, you can change the photo in any cell by simply dragging any other photo from the filmstrip onto (above) the existing photo in the cell. It will simply replace the photo previously in the cell.

With "Single Image/Contact Sheet" layout, the situation is very different. Photos will automatically fill the cells in the template in the same order as they appear in the filmstrip. If you want a different 'order' to the photos then they need to be Custom sorted (in a collection) before entering the Print module.
