12 Months of Parker Project Life Layout

Becky Higgins' Project Life App for Android was finally released at the end of February, and since I'd heard so much hype (albeit from the company itself), I had to give it a try.

For this layout, I used the 12 monthly photos I took of Parker, with a Midnight edition card in the middle.

I went back and edited some of these monthly photos after I put together the layout in the app because after I saw all the photos together on a single layout, I could tell that they weren't all edited for consistency of brightness and lighting because I didn't edit them all together and I didn't necessarily take the photos at roughly the same time of day every time either. I finally got all the monthly photos edited to a place where I felt like they were sufficiently consistent month-to-month and called it good.

I love being able to see the progression of newborn to one-year-old on this layout, and wish I'd taken Evie's monthly photos all like this too. I plan to have this layout printed (maybe even extra copies for grandparents) so that I can include it in a physical album.

Some quick observations on the app:
  • I found the app fairly intuitive to use, and I didn't personally run into anything buggy when I used it, though there were some that did.
  • There are some features for the iOS version of the app that don't exist yet for the Android version - sending the layout to print from within the app, for instance.
  • One feature that I thought could be nice, but isn't available, is being able to change the spacing width between photo slots.
  • I think I've read others asking for the ability to edit photos within the app. I'm not sure that I would personally use that functionality much if it were there - I find it hard to edit photos on my phone.
