New Here, Can I Do This With Word?
Posted 07 May 2010 - 12:13 AM
While I would love to start digiscrapping right now, I don't have the time. I did however buy some digiscrap clipart with the hopes that I could use it as standard clipart for making stationary and making a cover for my homeschooling organization binder. Is this possible to do? Can I use this clipart that I bought with Word? Or do I need some special software to be able to use it? So far I haven't been able to copy and paste the pics to where I want them.

You can use MS Word to create your pages. I think the issue you're having with placing your clip art where you want it has to do with the "layout" option. When you click on your clip art, a menu should come up for you to do various things to your clip art. You'll want to change the Layout to "In front of text." and then you'll find you're able to move things around more freely. You'll probably want to upgrade to photo editing software as you become more advanced, but you can definitely use Word to crank out some lovely pages!

Kimmy's suggestion to download the Photoshop Elements 30 day trial is a great one. If you're not ready to do that, but have Microsoft Publisher as part of your Office suite, you will find it more gives more control of image locations and text flow than Word.

Hallmark Scrapbook Studio is a proprietary program, and it uses proprietary files. Theoretically you should be able to insert jpgs, as they are the same format as the pictures you would import, but your ability to play with them would be quite limited.
The other challenge with the Hallmark program is the files it creates are proprietary, which limits your ability to share and print them.
