We’ll start of this class by showing you how to organize your photos by marking them as favorites, which you can do either by clicking the heart icon at the bottom left of each photo or you can simply hit the period key on your keyboard. From there we will go over the process of making either a photo book, calendar, or card. The quality is wonderful and we hope that if you do decide to order one of these that you’ll leave us a comment below and let us know if you were happy with the quality.
