Scrapbookers know more than anyone how easy it is to hoard paper. There are so many gorgeous collections available. But what do you do when your photos don't properly coordinate with the collection of your choice? We're here today with a quick photo tip to help you solve that problem.

When your photos don't match the colors of your paper or embellishments, we recommend changing the picture to black and white or sepia before printing. You can do this with simple editing software like Photoshop, Lightroom, or PicMonkey. This simple tip can work on photos with weird lighting or distracting elements too. 

The above tip is exactly what we did with the photo for this layout. There was an overwhelming amount of different colors, the background distracted from the focal point, and the photo had a yellow tint from the lighting. A simple editing change before print erased all of those problems, and we were able to use it on this 8.5 x 11 layout using supplies from Simple Storie's We Are Family collection. 

Have you run into this problem with your photos and supplies? We'd love to hear how you've creatively paired them together.
