Story skin is a single-page skin in which you can mix various content types; smaller and larger images and videos with text. You can add custom text or any (HTML) content as custom pages.

By default, the skin decides whether an image is displayed as a thumbnail, a wide image, or a full-width banner, based on their aspect ratios, however, you can also set this behavior manually with the "Edit mode -> Image data -> Treat image as..." box.
