Photo Layouts - portrait orientation

I've moved on to v5 recently and I'm finding the photo layouts in creations really good for displaying a heap of related photos. All the layouts however are for landscape-oriented photos within the creation. Before I manually try and build my own template (a bit of work if its the one with 16 photos) has anyone got any tips on a quick way of achieving this?

Thanks
Andrew

Andrew,
if you are using a mix of landscape and portrait photos on a photo layout, and your portrait is showing as a landscape then select the layer of this photo. Then click on the move tool, right click in the bounding box and select Fit Frame to Photo.
This should change the frame to portrait, if it to big for your taste just resize it.
Hope I'm right and that this helps.
Kev.

Kev's method works well especially for a mix. If you have say 16 portrait ones on one sheet you can just add them and then rotate them in the frame (using the right click>position photo in frame>rotate icon). You can even put 16 portraits on a landscape sheet that way by resizing the image to switch the width and the height. Those image placeholders are remarkably flexible - you can even drag and drop them onto a new doccument and make your own custom layout that way.

Thanks for the quick response guys. Spent the day watching the national road cycling race here in NZ so I'll be able to put these into practice and see if I can make them work.
