How do I create a photo album using auto-layout?

Select a Wedding or Senior album under the Projects tab.
This will enable the presets you require to build a photo album.

Move through the Settings tab, to choose a product size, then the Photos tab, to associate a collection of photos with your 

Under Settings, pick a book size.

Ensure that your Number of Pages is set to your target album size.

Under Photos, add the images you wish to include in your album.

Under the Editor's Book option, click on the light bulb icon to launch the Album wizard.

The Book Wizard window will appear.

Choose the style of the layouts - either using layouts that respect the center line of your spreads when images are added to the page..

or using layouts that add images across the center line of the spread.

Optionally choose to add images to the first and last pages (inside and back cover) of your book. 

(Note: this only works if you have selected Spreads + Single First/Last in the SETTINGS tab).

Specify the way your photo collection will be distributed across your book.

Choose a specific number of pages- your images will be added more or less evenly over the pages.

Or choose the minimum and the maximum number of images per page. Your book will generate pages until there are no more images to add to the book:

Or choose a Single Image layout format to add one image per page. More options are available for this choice.

Select Maximized - cropped (best fit) to add a single image to each side:
Select Centered - No crop to position a single photo, uncropped, on each side.

Select Centered - No Crop and Titles to a caption text frame under each uncropped image.

Last, choose your Image sorting options - file date/time or file name.

You can then click on Build My Book to generate the album respecting your choices. Once the book is built, you can continue to edit it, apply alternative layouts, and change the style of the book.
