In Topic: Printed Book Sizes

14 March 2015 - 08:35 AM

I make an annual photobook of every day life, special events, adventures, etc.  I use a landscape orientation and have my books printed by Blurb.  The major advantage for me in using Blurb is that the book can have up to 440 pages.  Some years I've come close to the max number of pages.  My favorite size is the 8 X 10.  I used that size in portrait orientation for a photobook of my daughter's engagement.  For whatever reason, I found it really difficult to scrap pages in a portrait orientation.  I found that Scrapgirl layout templates are easy to adapt to an 8 X 10 landscape format also.

In Topic: Transfer Actions/styles From Pse11 To Pse13

I upgraded from PSE 11 to 13 just before Christmas.  I loaded each style and action one at a time.  Yes, it took a while, but I discovered styles and actions I had forgotten I had!

In Topic: Another Flip Pal ? Batteries

I love Sanyo's Eneloop rechargeable batteries.  I've used them for about 2 years now with anything that needs batteries.  They hold the charge for a long time.  I've seen the batteries and charger bundled at Costco.

Thank you!  That works perfectly for me.



In Topic: Png To Psd Files

I guess I didn't express what I was looking for very well.  A while back the newsletter had an article on adapting png frames by using the magic wand in the center area of the frame where the photo would go, modifying that by expanding the selection slightly and then going through some additional steps.  I can't remember what those steps were.  The end result is that the png file was modified to include a layer where you could clip a photo to it.  Does that make sense to anyone?  I think Monica may have written the tutorial???
