Step 2. Add Picutre

To add photos, first locate photos on the left hand side and directly drag favorite photos to desired photo frame. Double-clicking a photo would also add photo to Work Space, however, in a different way. Photo added in this way will not contain any frame. After added, you can rotate, swap, crop, swap, pan and resize these photos through buttons, tool bar or right-click menu.

Alternatively, you can directly import a red heart photo instead of doodling by yourself. If so, skip this step.

Step 4. Print your Valentine Scrapbook

Before printing, you should make sure the preview is right. If anything is not perfect, change it by turning back to previous steps. Usually, select the correct orientation and make perfect layout, then you could proceed to printing. In some situations, margins could come out. If this is the case, select the last layout method and change the width and height to 29.7 and 21.0 for Landscape orientation (first one). Your love photo Scrapbook would always be impressive.

A Valentine Poem

Be my valentine.
Always be mine.
You are a rose
That grows
Without thorns on.
Forever reaching long
Towards the sky.
Carrying you and I.
Your love given.
Worth it.
The sunrise.
The moon shines.
Loving sighs
Be my valentine.

Happy Valentine's day. Thank you for reading my Valentine's poem! Much love to all!
