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.
Since our PixPublisher is so diverse and offers so many amazing assets, each week we will focus on one item to help you create an amazing photo book.
This week we want to show you how to have a smooth color fade. If you would like to have a smooth fade to a solid color you can do this using stickers. The easiest way to do this is to:
1. Open the stickers panel and type blend into the search box.
2. Drag the sticker called softedge strip onto your page.
3.Rotate and stretch it so that the dark end fits against the solid color you want to blend to, and the sticker extends for the full length of the page. In the example photo below the sticker is highlighted to show where it was positioned.
4. Click on the color fill option and use the eyedropper to select the adjacent solid color so that the sticker’s edge transitions smoothly to that color.
We hope this little tip will help you create more unique and fun designs with our PixPublisher.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. This is the time of year when typically there are a lot of marriage proposals. With the excitement of being engaged, comes many milestones in your relationship. Today’s post focuses on some clever ideas on making an engagement photo book with our PixPublisher.
Instead of just putting together a guest book of your engagement pictures, why not think outside the box a bit. For instance, I’m sure you have a story as to how you and your fiance’ first met. In most cases, the stories are quite different between the two perspectives. So why not put a page in your photo book that includes the story of how you met? It will be great to get both sides of the story and your guests will love to read it.
Along these same lines, you can also include:
* Your Proposal Story
*Your First Trip Together
*Your First Date
When I photograph couples, I often ask them to take me somewhere that is special to them a cafe’ , a park, a movie theater. Anything that will reflect this great period in your life.
Not only are the words images important to your engagement book, but so are the outfits you have chosen. With our PixPublisher, it’s easy to customize the photo book to your colors. I took our guest book template and changed it from a black bar to a brown bar. If you take a look at the red arrow, you’ll see where I did a color pick from her boot. I picked the darkest color to anchor the photo book and have it coordinate.
These are just a few ideas to jazz up your engagement photo book. I hope these small tips will help you on your way to making a photo book that is a true reflection of your engagement.
