Design Ideas: Design ideas are like a template you can apply to the Photobook. While applying the design ideas, you can’t change the background, but you can apply different images, texts, and font styles to the photobook.
Layouts: Layout consists of a group of masking images on which you can upload the image of your choice. While applying the layouts, you can change the background, add & edit text, color, image, clipart, and much more.
The major difference between design ideas and layouts is you can’t change the background in design ideas. Though some functions are the same, they are still different.
