Hello and welcome to our Editor's Pick Mini Books.Â Please take a moment to read this important information about your product.
In order to maintain the look of the templates you will need to have the same fonts installed on your system as the ones we used in the design.
FONTS USED IN THIS DESIGN:
Memphis LT Standard (Light, Medium)
Ostrich Sans (Black, Bold, Medium & Regular)
The fonts we use in our designs are usually freeware or shareware fonts available for free on the internet.Â We cannot include the fonts in your download because they are protected under copyright.Â However you can download them directly from their creators.Â Â We find that if you type in the name of the font into your favorite search engine you will come up with several download sources.
Inserting your own images into the templates is very easy.Â Perform the following steps:
1)) Select the image layer you would like to populate in your LAYERS palette.
2)) Open your image and drag it onto the template using your MOVE tool (Keyboard shortcut “V”)
3))Â Click on the tiny black triangle in your LAYERS palette to pull up the drop-down menu and choose “Create Clipping Mask”.
4))Â Use the FREE TRANSFORM tool (Keyboard shortcut Control+T) and drag in the corners of your image to position it correctly within the frame.
5)) Press Enter to apply the transformation.
Repeat this step with any subsequent images.
Changing the colors of design elements is quite easy, and there's a few different ways, depending on the element.Â Simply follow these steps:
PHOTOSHOP CS AND NEWER
Any non-vector design elements will have a solid color fill layer linked directly above them in the layers palette.Â To change the color of that element, simply double click the colored box next to the words “”X” COLOR” and choose a new color.
SOME DESIGNS ARE IN THE FORM OF SHAPES, WHICH ARE VECTOR LAYERS.Â This makes it very easy to change the color on the fly.Â Here's how:
1.Â Choose the graphic that you would like to change in the Layers palette.
2.Â Now, double-click the small box of color next to the name of the layer.
3.Â Choose the new color when the dialog box appears.
4.Â Click “OK”.
PRINTING YOUR MINI ALBUMS:
We have designed these templates to be used with White House Custom Color's ( www.whcc.com ) Press Printed Wallet Size Accordion Mini Book with a Custom Cover.Â If you currently use WHCC the templates are 100% ready to go.Â Don't worry, however, if you use another lab as the albums will be printed easily with your favorite printer.Â Remember that each lab is different, so be absolutely sure that you contact them for their specs and color profiles prior to submitting your files.Â When you have your lab's sizing and submission guidelines, you will need to transfer the designs to their templates before printing them.
As a small business owner, we’re sure that you’ve got a lot on your plate. You want to do what you love, and make a good living doing it, but at times it can feel like you’re doing everything besides photography to keep your business running. Besides all the workflow tasks of being a photographer, we know the one BIG project that almost never gets done: marketing. It’s on all our to-do lists, but it’s huge. It’s daunting. And, where do you even begin?
After marrying my husband Brian in 2009, I decided to skip out on the corporate world and go out on my own as a freelance graphic and web designer. Following the rapid success and high demand, I assembled a design team in 2012 and we began hosting in-person events to help creative entrepreneurs by the masses to build, design, and launch their website in two days flat.
Our studio marries the best of an industrial loft with boutique elegance. We had the opportunity to design the floor plan, pick the finishes, and make it our own. We both love interior design, so we loved the process of designing and decorating our space and really feel at home here. We collect unique props from around the world to complement our cute little clients.
