A "slicing structure" or a hierarchical partition of the display space is an efficient way to present photo collections. However, with different aspect ratios or areas of basic blocks, the prevalent framework creates a number of irregular dead spaces that remain unfilled. In this paper, an efficient solution to reduce or completely eliminate these dead spaces is developed by globally adjusting positions and sizes of basic blocks. The gutter thickness is also uniquely specified to augment the aesthetic appeal. We present a detailed description of the aesthetic solution with experiments to demonstrate its efficiency.
