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.

2.       You’ll see a Color Fill option appear on the orange toolbar above the workspace.

 


3.       Click on the colored square and you’ll see the color selection panel open.

These are your choices for the new color you want to change the selected object to. You can:

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.

It’s that easy.

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.

5. To make the fade more or less gradual just stretch the height of the sticker.

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.
