                Having fun with Word Art!

                We all love playing about with Word Art, and now we have two amazing ways to create and save Word Art within SBM 2, using Caption and Ribbon Text.

                But they are both so versatile its like having a whole new tool box!

                I'm dealing with Caption Text right now.

                When you first go into this, type your text and choose font as usual. We all know now that we can also choose from solid colour, two colour blend or image. Make your choices at this stage, you can change them later if you want to.

                If you decide to use a colour blend and the colour you want isn't on the palette, simply go to More Colours and move the mouse outside the dialogue box. You will find you have an eye dropper that you can use to 'pick-up' colour from your layout. When you click OK this colour will remain in your palette so that you can use it for another embie.

                Now say OK and your Word Art is on the page. Drag out corners at this point to resize - remember if you want to constrain the aspect hold down Shift as you drag, if you want to distort your text then pull on any side or handle.

                Now comes the fun part. Double click your word and go to Advanced, click on Bendable. Click OK. Now you have an extra set of handles and when you drag one of these you literally bend your text. But you don't need to stop there.

                Right Click anywhere along the line and you will get a new re-shaping handle. You can put as many as you want along your line, to fine tune your curve. If you decide you don't want that many curves, you can Rigt Click on any handle to remove it.

                If you like what you have so far you can save it as an Image to use later. To save an individual image, make sure there is nothing else on the page - I usually add a new page and copy my Word Art into that - I can delete it later.

                Click on your image and then go to Page, Save as Image, Select PNG and check the Transparent Background box. Choose custom size and type into the Width and Height boxes exactly what you see in bottom right corner of your screen. My example said 1276 x 413.

                Choose an output folder and give your Embie a suitable name so you can find it easily when you want to use it again.

                But your word art is still on your page, you can still change it. You can give it a whole new look.

                Double click your Word Art again and go back into Advanced. Pull your Smoothness slider along to the left, so that the value reads O.OO and say OK. Now instead of bendy text you have spiky text!

                Go on and have a ball with Word Art. Here's two for your collection - I hope I've uploaded them correctly!

                  Tips & Tricks v2 - Kerning

                  with v2 Scrapbook Max we can for the first time use kerning which controls the spacing between each character and each line if it is multi line text. It is very useful to save space and make certain text (like vertical text) look a lot better. From any text property window you go to the advanced tab to change the kerning. (see image below)
                  See below an example of the same text with kerning and without kerning.

                        BEST TIP -- buy or @I version 2 of Scrapbook Max

                        LOL that is the best tip I know but I don't think it will count!

                        Version 2 runs so much better than version 1.
                        1) You can duplicate a page almost instantly, no waiting.
                        2) You can have much larger albums (more pages) and thesystem is not bogged down and out of memory all the time.
                        3) So many new features

                        OOOPS I wasn't ready to post. I was trying to correct something and it posted. The subject should say "Buy or WIN..."
