Tips & Tricks v2 - Publish one page to an image file
It is now possible to publish only one page of a Scrapbook album to an image. From the page you want to publish, go to the top menu bar of Scrapbook Max, Select Page, then "save as image". There are several file types you can publish to as well as choose the quality of your published image which will change your file size.
If you choose "custom" for the size you need to change the zero for height and width to your desired size or it will not work. The size measurement is pixels. So 12x12 size page at 300 dpi would need to be 3600 by 3600.
Tips & Tricks v2 - Twice as many shapes - invert
Scrapbook Max users love shapes. Now we have twice as many shapes. They have added invert. Any shape you have, you can invert. Many times this will give you really cool shape for a page border etc. When you double mouse click the embellishment or paper it will open up the property window. There is a box you mark to invert your shape and it will give you a preview. Here is an example of an original shape and then the inverted shape.
A favorite new feature but there are so many how do you choose a favorite.
