Inset photos

    Anybody ever use a photo inset inside another more dominant photo?

    I've got a great action shot that I think should be my lead art, but after the way this team came back to win its division, I want to run a celebration shot with it, so I was thinking of running it inset (it's not as strong as the action shot).

    I think it could spice up the page a bit if done correctly, but, as I'm doing it, I'm having a tough time making it stand out from the larger photo. Any ideas on how best to do an inset? Should I not bother at all?

    Probably shouldn't..
    But, if you were to give it a try, a big, thick white or black border would help. Say, 5 or 6 pt.
