    Default Designing new Templates

    Hi folks,

    I just bought the program last week and keen to jump in and start designing my own templates. I've been studying the help Guide trying to figure out how to create the "gray" areas meant for double-clicking and inserting your photos.

    I read a tutorial in another thread 'How can I make scrapbook templates of my own' and wondering in answer no. 5....make sure to check the "remove photos" checkbox...

    ....if this is when the "gray" areas then appear?

    Nice to meet you all!

    Cheers

    hi pauline

    welcome to SBM

    when you make your template, add photos where you would like them, when you export as a template you can click the 'remove photo' section and this will replace the photo with a white photo that says 'double click to select photo'

    hope that helps

    Hi Pauline - Welcome to MAX!!!

    There is one other way to make these "gray areas". Select the photo by clicking on it. Then RIGHT mouse click - a menu pops up. Choose clear image.

    This is handy if some of the elements on your page are photos, like if you've brought in a photo (as a photo) and made it big enough for a background. If you choose "remove photos" when exporting the template, it removes those too! So just remember this method if you've used any photos on your page as EMBELLISHMENTS!

    I hope this makes sense - and if it doesn't now, it will as you work with the program a little more.

    Good luck and happy scrappin!

    Hope you've got some wedding bits now.
    Have you still got your accent Pauline. My grandmother moved from Scotland to England and lost hers pretty much. Most people I know don't.
