You can find free pdf storyboards templates all over the web. Now what if you need to edit them? Here is a set of storyboard templates in idml files designed for various film ratios that you can edit in Adobe InDesign. Download the file, open it with InDesign, and place your images in the blank frames. You can use the rule of thirds layer to adjust your composition and framing (toggle visibility on or off). Change the text to whatever you need, adjust the layout, place your own logo etc. Then export your finished storyboard in pdf as you see fit. To add page(s), right click selected page(s) in the “pages” tab, and duplicate the spread or single page. Don’t want to bother working with InDesign? Grab the second link for each template to get the blank pdf file, which you can print and use right away.
