    Default Weekly Lesson Forum

    It would be helpful to have a weekly lesson forum where we could all learn new techniques. Another scrapbook site dedicates a specialized forum to specific programs. The lesson could then be posted to the gallery just like the weekly challenges. I would also like to learn to do circular text and gel shapes. I notice other people would like to learn to create shapes. A weekly lesson would help us develop our talents.

    Hopefully, the organizers will consider this suggestion for future development.

    I starting writing some basic tips here ...

    If we can start a list, I'll try and add whatever I can provide.

    I notice a lot of people have questions on these certain subjects, so here is my top ten list:

    1. Setting the projects page size.

    2. How to import JPG's and PNG's (embies etc) from other sites.

    3. How to change colors on objects.

    4. How to export as a template.

    5. And why does it show up blank at times.

    6. How to upload to the forum.

    7. How to upload to the gallery and how to resize so it is acceptable
    to the gallery.

    8. Where did their project go.

    9. How to create transparent backgrounds

    10. Word art.

    These are just a few that keep getting asked. And of course there are more,
    I know these have been answered over and over, but maybe if there was a specific section for all these in one place that would be great.

    P.S. this will keep you busy and out of trouble for a while!

    Hello Everyone!

    We can add 'how-do-i' articles to our FAQ section if they provide enough information, and answer a common question:

    I would LOVE to be able to ~~ after grouping items together ~~ then resize them without distortion.

    I know that you can click/drag one of the highlighted corners, but the re-sizing doesn't maintain it's proper proportions.

    Now I've confused myself.
    Hope you understand!!!

    Default Weekly Lesson Forums....

    I do understand there is a need for many members to have help in learning their programs to use with Max....Steve has Fantastic Tutorials on his site, that are Very helpful...

    In order to have a weekly or monthly Tutorial session we would need a forum and tutorial writters, Plus many sites have a chat room for a more one-to one teaching Chat...It takes alot of work to organize these Tutorial chats and Lessons.
    I think if we had a Forum called Other Programs Used, and list the most popular ones such as PS/PSP/DIP, then if anyone has a helpful tutorial they would like to share/or Tutorial site...it could be placed in that forum.

    I would more then gladly help others to learn certain techniques, but my knowledge is limited,so I go to Tutorial sites geared for the programs I am using....there are so many sites on the net that can help anyone learn their programs.
