When to use a grid in your design
Grids help you place your images in an aesthetically pleasing format. They take the pain out of trying to line up the edges of your images or crop them so they match up perfectly.
If you’re working with 3 or more images as you build a design, use a grid to help you easily arrange them into pleasant compositions. Below, we’ve used a grid to organize 3 landscape images into a beautiful social media post.
You might want to use grids to show a progression, much like a storyboard, or merely for a stylistic effect.
Below, we’ve arranged 4 images depicting the year’s 4 seasons, aiming to convey a passage of time in viewers minds.
