By now you have been scrolling through the templates you have, decided what works for you and which ones you can’t get how you want them! So we are going to show you just a few tricks to tweak your templates to make them your own!
How to customize Photo Windows in your templates
The template above is an example of customizing the photo windows. This is the 11up-White-2P3L6S-Spacers template, but on the top row there were 2 square photo windows that were combined to make the small skinny portrait window. Then, the same was done on the bottom row, making this a 9up template.
To customize a template, open it up in the Print module. To change the size of a photo window…a “cell”…go down to the Cells section in the right column. To make the change in this 11up template, delete the square box under the top one. You will see in the Cells section that each box was 1×1. So now just highlight the top square cell and change the “height” to 2.0 (see screenshot below). Then do the same for the two square cells on the bottom row.
How to customize Logos in your templates
Some of our templates include a bar at the bottom for logo placement, which is customizable. In this example, the bottom logo bar was removed.
Above on the left you will see the original template, and the customized example on the right. The logo is also still on the template, but it was moved to be over the photo second to the bottom.
To customize like the example, you should first remove the bar from your template before you load it with photos. To remove the bottom logo and bar, go to the Page section and un-click “Identity Plate”. This will remove the logo. If you want to remove the bar but just put the logo somewhere else…just click the logo and move it wherever you like it, and then scroll down to the Print Job section, and under “Custom File Dimensions” just lower the height of the template by small increments until you get the bar to disappear. If you go too far, the photo cells will start to overlap, and you will see that happen. If it does, just click the template in the left column again and start over.
Save your new template as your own!
Finally, if you think you would use your new layout again, save it as a new template. Go up to the top menu. Choose Print/New Template and name your new template. After naming it, it will show up in your left column as a template you can use over and over!
