You’ve asked for it and we delivered! Our PixPublisher photo book editor now supports the uploading of PNG files with transparency. This means you can now create your own stickers with which to embellish your photo books! This is great for anyone who wants to add their logo! It’s also great for scrapbookers. Instead of designing it in Photoshop and uploading it, now you can skip that step and upload your strickers straight to your gallery.
So how does it work? At the import step where you upload your photos, just upload your transparent PNG files as you would any other photo. Once you’re in the editor, go to the iamges tab and you’ll see a new category at the bottom called Decorations. That’s wnhere your uploaded PNG files will be.
Enjoy the new welcomed change! By the way, PNGs are intended to be used as stickers/decorations, not as an alternate format for your photos. As a result, when you add them to your book they will be treated as stickers. i.e. you can’t pan, then crop them, frame them, etc. However, you will be able to color fill them and stretch them.
You now have more options to make your photo book .. your way. We now offer customized end papers. You can now choose whether to have end papers in your photo books. You can also choose the color of end pages. This is perfect as it will add to your design and make for better flow. One last addition, add our logo to the back end papers and save $2.00 on your photo book. Questions? Feel free to email me at email@example.com.
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.
