How many photos do you usually include in your layout? When I'm making a layout I'm usually including one or two photos, unless it's my pocket pages, in which case I'm including lots of photos every time.

This seems excessively time consuming to me and also then I have to come up with a title. However, if you want your title to look cool but don't want to take the time to include an alpha, there's actually a great option for adding a little customization without too much effort: Photoshop Layer Styles.
