Well, it was bound to happen, it's hard to find anything that does it all well.
Our tests finally found a small glitch and a wish. Seems that Scrapbook Max doesn't regognize transparent areas in GIF format files. Oh well, nothings perfect and the ease of use definitely outways this small detail.
Our wish for the next version will be that they fix this small bug and that they add an eraser and a way to at least rotate journaling text. Of course, we are still just testing the software, so if anyone knows a way to turn journaling at different angles... please let us know.
Our test sample came from our PrincessCrafts.com site where we have an assortment of over 1300 templates in all different categories. Unfortunately, all the transparent templates on the site are in the GIF format to make them compatible with more of the older software programs out there. The background still work great though.
We had to bring the frame page back into our PaintshopPro software to change it to a PNG format so that the transparent areas would work properly. Still wanted you to have the matched set of cute little firemen.
