In Fusion, you can choose from hundreds of professionally designed layouts and customize them in any way you like.
What are layouts
A layout is the way in which the parts of something are arranged or laid out. For a yearbook (or any other publications), it's the way all the components of a page are arranged (text, images, elements).
Add or remove a layout
In Fusion, you have access to hundreds of free layouts. To browse the layouts available, click the Layouts tab. You can then scroll through the layout pane to preview each layouts. To load a layout in your page, simply click on it. You can also choose to drag the selected layout onto the page.
All our layouts are free to use. If the FREE sign doesn’t show on a layout, it doesn’t mean that you’ll have to pay anything. It just means that the layout uses premium images or elements. Replace those images with your own photos and the layout will be free again.
To know which are the premium elements you need to remove, simply click on the information button (i).
To remove a layout from your page, select it and press delete or replace it with another one.
WARNING: when you delete or replace a layout, the content will be erased as well. So make sure you choose the right layout before typing your content.
