Hello fellow scrapaholics!

I asked ScrapbookMAX! if I might host a challenge and I hope that there will be lots of participation!

Usually I will start challenges at the BEGINNING of the week but since we're just getting started, I thought I'd post an easy-peasy challenge to get y'all going.

Here's how it will work - Whatever challenge we have for the week (usually starting on Mondays), you have until Sunday at NOON to complete your challenge.

You will need to upload your submissions to your gallery and then post a link to your layout here for everyone to see!

I am thinking that I will *attempt* to give gifts (don't hold me to it!) :p to those who post - We'll see how it goes! :)

This week's challenge won't require any creating at all. Everyone who posts by Sunday at noon will recieve a PM from me with a link to a free template.

Simply go to your scrapbook MAX! gallery and post a link here to your BEST and MOST FAVORITEST thing you've done so far!

Go!!!

Here's a link to a layout that I really do love. It's of my sweet baby boy at 11 weeks.

It just so happened that the color of the chair that my dear Natha was laying in sort of "blended in" with the paper that II chose. This started out as something totally different than how it ended up. (I love it when that happens!!!)

You can tell I'm a newbie to forums (SBM is my first). Will someone tell me how to include the link! :o :o

09-07-2006, 05:45 PM
You can goto your LO you like in the gallery, the in your search bar it should have the URL (starts with http://), you copy that then go to your reply thread and click paste to insert it in your message.

Hope that helps.

Thank you so much - I went there and couldn't find a URL - I must be doing it in the wrong order. I could only find the name of the layout. I feel like an idiot! :rolleyes: If you can add some details I might be able to get it!

MaggieMae

I'm such a doofus! I realized you meant the bar at the very top! I went into search mode. Thank you for your help!

I like this layout - especially the colors:

Hi, I have got it uploaded to the gallery but now I'm stuck, can anyone tell me how I know the address to create the link to in my message? Thank you

When you are looking at your page in the gallery look at the top of your browser. You will see an address that begins with "http://".

You want to highlight that address and select Edit-Copy from your browser menu or hit the CTRL + C keys on your keyboard to copy the address.

Now when you post a reply here click on the insert link button (the one that looks like a little globe with a chain link). A popup window will ask you for the URL of your link. Hit the CTRL + V keys to paste the address you previously copied into this popup and click the OK button.

Hope this helps.

I guess this is my favorite one. I'm not very good with layouts, but I like this cover. Since I work mostly with digital albums and slide presentations, I always make a cover for the opening. This one has all my favorite colors and it really was fun making it.


http://www.scrapbookmax.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=1985&cat=500&ppuser=194


And I would like to tell all of you what beautiful work you have done. All the pages in that gallery are wonderful. So inspiring. I'm learning a lot from you all. I'm also very impressed and happy about your generosity and the way every one helps everyone else with all the little problems of working with computers and the net.

And Julieh... This was a stroke of genius. How wonderful to share this with each other. Thank you so much.

Granny :D

And Julie you have your hands full now. So many great pages. I would hate to have to be the one to choose the best.

For your participation in this week's challenge, I am going to give you all the following template complete with word art and a bracket - It also includes a "blank" page that you can just double click and change all your elements and make it whatever you would like!

I'll start sending them by PM in a bit.

Also - For those designers out there, I would like for our gifts to come from folks other than me so if you would like to sponsor a challenge gift, please PM me!

Thanks!

(*please note: in the screenshot the title has "daddy" on it but I have also included a "mommy" word art as well!)

Granny :confused:

This is what I have been able to determine. The template installs into the "My Documents\Scrapbook MAX!\Templates" folder as "gift1.smt".

You can then create an album. It shows up in the dialog as "gift1". Remember that after creating an album it puts all the goodies in your "My Documents\Scrapbook MAX!\Projects\Album Name\Resources\Autoplay\Images" folder.

I then created a folder under the main program "C:\Program Files\Scrapbook MAX!\Gallery\Images\Embellishments" directory and called it "weekly challenge gift1". I then copied all the resource files from adding the page earlier to this folder so I can snag them by clicking on the embellisments icon.

Hope I didn't confuse you more. :eek:

poppabob
09-08-2006, 06:53 PM
Thanks for the gift Julie! And also thanks for your time in hosting these challenges. I'm sure it's a lot of work and I'm also sure we will all benefit from your efforts and the efforts of those that participate.

Muchos gracias!

Thanks Poppabob....

I must be going crazy, cause it seems to me that we used to click on an smt, and it would automatically put every thing in the right place. What has changed?

I feel like I just landed here from Mars. Sorry, I know is me, I must be having a very senior moment. But I appreciate your help very much.

Granny :confused:

poppabob
09-09-2006, 06:09 AM
It may be me that is having the senior moment.:eek:

I haven't been using the program long but my experience so far has been, downloaded .smt files wind up in the My Documents\...\templates area and downloaded .smb files wind up in the Program Files\...\embellishment folders.

The only way I've found so far to get the individual elements of a downloaded template into the embellishments area is using the technique I outlined above.

Marion
09-09-2006, 10:41 AM
I still just used "save as" changed the extension to ".smt" downloaded it to my desktop and clicked on it and it installed perfectly like any other template.
I must just be the lucky one!

I hope I didn't confuse anyone. The SMT installed just fine for me too. I thought Granny was talking about individual elements being installed to the Gallery directories (Paper Scraps, Embellishments, etc.). That doesn't happen with SMT files that I'm aware of.

Kim

juliehclark
09-10-2006, 12:03 PM
you should just right click and "save as" and save it to your desktop. Then go to the desktop and double click it and it should install so the next time you open SBM, it should be there as an available template to choose from (when you "create a new page")

As far as uploading - DO you mean uploading a layout to show us?

kimberleyg
09-10-2006, 01:55 PM
That's not what I meant.
I want to put a page from a scrapbook in the gallery on here. I tried but it said it was the wrong format. Also I only want to put one page on here not the whole book. Sorry I didn't explain it very well the first time.

Kim

IN SBM you'll need to go to the menu File-->Publish To-->Images. Choose the quality and size you want. I use High quality and Small size. It's a preference thing. Anyway, this will save your album to jpg files. Sorry, we don't have the ability to save single pages yet. These saved jpg files will by default be located in "My Documents\Scrapbook MAX!\Published Files\NameOfAlbum\Images" folder.

Now go to the layout gallery (find the link at the top of the website). Click on the link that says upload images. Here you will notice an area that says "Select the images you wish to upload from your computer." To the right of that you will see browse buttons. Click on the first browse button and navigate to the Published Files folder on your computer as outlined above and select the image you want to upload. Enter a title and description if you wish and then click on the Upload/Submit button.

Voila! Posted layout page.

Hope this helps.

Actually, I just noticed it in the Frequently Asked Questions part of the website also. You can read a much better detailed set of instructions here (http://www.scrapbookmax.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1374).

Should have thought of that before I typed all that. :o
