  1. Does Blurb work something like My Publisher did? I have been working with Shutterfly. I can't get me layouts to fit on their page, even after adding to the size in an attempt to fit. I don't want my original pages centered because that would change the symmetry I wanted. Is there a way that I have not found to nudge the page to the right/left or up/down after it is placed on their book? I never know which part of the page they will put their little shaded marks through.
  2. Thank you all for your advice. I have another 100 page book of layouts ready to roll, so I really need all the help I can get. I loved My Publisher and if someone has LOTS of $$, she should start a company that uses the system they had. I certainly would want to be your first customer.
  3. Thank you so much Angie. That is exactly what I needed. I do have one of the handbooks, but didn't think to look there. I was even thinking I had PSE13, but I have 15.
  4. I will be thinking about this. I know there have been times I wished you had something in the past. Right now, as I'm getting old, I wish there were simply a place that had instructions like how to install brushes in PSE...I have 13 now. I know you used to give instructions with the brushes sometimes. And then there was a place on the forum or somewhere. Maybe I just have gotten lost and can't find things that are here.
  5. Does Cindy have the alpha used for the word Family in today's limited time freebie? I would love to buy that.
  6. Are there any artistic rules for making clusters of elements for a layout. Does anyone know of a tutorial?
  7. Thank you, Scrapgarden, Super Scrapper! You had the answer I needed. Now I can be happy with PSE 15! We had SBA ShadowsActions installed in actions and effects. Neither worked well for me. What we needed was SBA Basic Shadows Styles like I've always had. Somehow my husband missed that when he set up PSE 15 and when I told him I needed it, he found the SBA Shadows Actions in my files and installed them. Now, I can get back to work. YIPEE. Scrap garden you just gave me a good Christmas. Thank you, Syndee. I'll have to try your styles sometime. Thank God for Scrapgirls.
  8. Syndee told us today how to make our brightly colored photos work better with this month's club, The Family We Choose. I had never thought of it before, but it was a lightbulb moment. Could one change the hue saturation on the things in the kit? I tried it and YES you can do that. That makes all our kits more flexible. One can saturate or desaturate at will.
  9. Is the one you have in the styles called a style.? Mine are called actions. i was able to get the one in effects to make a shadow, but it is on a different layer and I can't figure out how to make the changes needed. Those that show direction of the light source, etc. If I ever could learn to do that, it would take many more steps than what I was able to do before.
  10. I no longer know how to contact the designers. I had SBA_ shadows before, but I understand Syndee Nuckles has a set of shadows. Syndee, if you are out there, have you tried those shadows in PSE 15? Do they work? How do they work? I will definitely buy them if they will help me, because my old SBA shadows no longer work, now that I am using PSE 15. At least I don't know how to make them work right. I really need some help.
  11. Is anyone with the new PSE 15 having trouble making shadows? I really need help! Have never had this trouble with other PSEs.
  12. I'm starting over. I have SBA_SSActions_Shadows. I was able to put those shadows into the effects panel in the past, even though they are named actions. In PSE 13, I would choose the shadow I wanted and click it on the layer. Then a fx symbol would pop up by it in the layers panel, I would right (I think) click that and change the direction, opacity and width of the shadow. It was perfect. Now I can only click it onto the layer from the effects panel or the actions panel (I've tried installing it in both). I can find no way to adjust those important factors. Now all my shadows are very elementary and can be on the exact wrong side of the image. I think I need a real expert, but don't know where to find one, except here at Scrapgirls. This has always been THE PLACE TO COME for things like this. I hope I explained it well enough. I am really at a standstill; since I need good shadows on EVERY layout I do. If no one has the answer to this question, does anyone know how to get good shadows any other way in PSE 15? Merry Christmas!
  13. I spoke too soon. I was able to put those shadows into effects as I have in the past, even though they are named actions. In the past, I would choose the shadow I wanted and click it on the layer. Then a fx symbol would pop up by it in the layers panel, I would right( I think) click that and change the direction, opacity and width of the shadow. It was perfect.

Now all my shadows are very elementary and can be on the exact wrong side of the image. I think I need a real expert, but don't know where to find one, except for here at Scrapgirls. This has always been THE PLACE TO COME for things like this. I hope I explained it well enough. I am really at a standstill; since I need good shadows on EVERY layout I do. Merry Christmas!
  14. Thank you, Carla. They are called actions, but they work in the effects folder, just like I had them in PSE 13. However, since they said actions, he had installed them in the actions. Why they were called actions, I don't know. May I ask you what you use in their place now if you have not used them in a long time? Did you find something you like better?
  15. This is Cropalot again. My brilliant computer man husband found this post and fixed the problem. I would be sorry that I typed the question if it hadn't been a great incentive for him. LOL I'm not sure how he did it, but he got those actions installed in effects and they work just fine.
