View Full Version : need help with duplicating a page 75 times
08-13-2008, 11:42 AM
I have created a template scrapbook page for a children's theater, then each individual page will have each actor's picture and biography on it. (75 of them)
I now know how to duplicate the template before starting, then put in the individual info. Then I am taking each one and naming it with their name.
But, I am not sure if I need to make each page in it's own scrapbook?
Do I have to save each as it's own jpg file in order to email it off to a printing place?
I am just unsure of how to organize and name all of it correctly.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

Can't figure out if you have one scrapbook with 75 pages, or 75 scrapbooks with one page?

I wasn't sure which way was best. I haven't started to do them yet. Just designed the first one.

I would not put 75 pages in one book, too memory intensive. I would make the first one and call it whatever_template. I would make the first one with a person and do a save as Whatever_Backup (so you will have a backup to use), then do export images. Here is where it will get tricky; I think I would keep a window open to the directory that gets created and after you save an image, I would alt-tab over to that directory, and rename the file. Alt-tab back to SBM, create the second layout, export images, then alt-tab back to the directory and rename the second image. Do several at a time, but then take a break; keep a list by your computer so you can scratch off names as they are completed. You should end up with 75 files in the image directory, but don't forget to rename after each to avoid overwriting. This is the way I would do it, someone else may come on with a different idea. Make sure you have the original and the backup so if anything goes wrong, you will have the original to fall back on.

I'll take a shot at this, but I haven't done that many huge albums.
It sounds like you already created a blank template with just the coloration, the journal (bio space), and the picture space. You exported it to your template section, so now you just bring in a page for each child you are featuring. I would change the page nametag to show the child's last name and first initial. Use an ABC order. Load the page with the child's information. Save and add the next page. Because of the size, I think I would do three scrapbooks of 25 pages each or it will slow down your computer. After publishing the scrapbook as a jpg image, you could use Windows Explorer to move all the jpg files to one file for the printer or a slide show.

Thank you both for the response, I am working on this right now.
I appreciate your feedback. I hope it all works out.
