In this week’s tip for our PixPublisher, we focus on a feature that will bring color to your photo book. One of the most power features of PixPublisher is the ability to change the color of any sticker or frame to whatever color you want. This can be done by the use of the color fill option. Changing a sticker’s color is easy, just follow these steps:
1. Select a sticker or frame in by clicking on it.
a) choose a color from the palette
b) manually enter a color code into the input box
c) use the eyedropper tool to pick a color by clicking anywhere on the screen.
4. Once you’ve chosen a color, you’ll see the sticker or frame change to that color.
Changing colors is an extremely powerful feature that can be used in many creative ways. Not only can you change the colors of stickers to suit the palette for your project, you can use a combination of color fill and opacity to tint your photos by adding colored layers over them. You can also create custom colored backgrounds by re-coloring transparent overlays, and much more.
Every week we dedicate a blog post to tips and tricks in our PixPublisher to help you make amazing photo books. This week we focus on swapping out your pictures in your layout.
When putting the finishing touches on a photo book, sometimes you’ll find that a spread looks better if you exchange the placement of some of the photos. This is particularly true when using the auto fill function to place your photos for you. This is where the swap function in PixPublisher comes in.
Rather than having to find the photos in the image pane and re-dragging them onto the page in the proper placement, you can just pick two photos and swaptheir positions. The steps are as follows:
1. When you have two photos on a spread and you want to swap their position, you first have to select them both. You do this by holding down the SHIFT key and clicking on both the photos you want you exchange.
Each week we like to focus on one small area of our PixPublisher Online Software. The tips are designed to enhance your photo books and unleash your creativity.
Today we want to show you how to change the color of your background to suit your lay out in your photo book. This short one minute YouTube gives you the step by step process to changing up the background color.
We’re so excited to announce that all our custom cover photo books are now available in even numbered page counts. This is the first time we have ever offered this service since we first started producing photo books back in December of 2008. You can now choose between 14 and 76 pages. You have the freedom to build the book you want, without compromising on the beauty and durability you’ve come to expect from AdoramaPix.
Adding extra pages in PixPublisher is easy. All books now start with the minimum 14 pages. Click on the +/- icon at the bottom right corner of the editor screen to add any number of additional spreads to your book. There is a fixed cost for each spread, and the new total cost for your book is reflected in the upper right of the editor on the order button. Once you’ve added pages beyond the minimum of 14, you can remove pages in the same way and just as easily.
We believe this small change will make a big difference when it comes to designing photo books with Adoramapix.
