  • Hi from Brazil!

    Hi everyone!!!

    I'm testing this amazing software and I'm very glad to see how easy it is!

    But I'm still afraid to buy it. Do you know if there is any feature that allows us to crop the photos in different shapes and apply effects around them? We can see some round photos and some with special effects in the gallery, but I can't find a feature do create my own effects around the photos. Any ideas?

    Thank you so much!

    Hi Louise.. Welcome to the forum!

    When you say effects, can you be a little more specific. There are many masks or shapes that come with the program, and there are 100s in the web that you can use with Max.

    If you can give us a little more info, maybe we can answer your question?

      Hello Brazil

      Welcome to our group! Have you downloaded the trial version of the program. If not, you will want to do that so you can play with it. You can use it for 30 days before purchasing the full version.

      As for croping pictures and adding shapes, YES YES YES!!!! You can do all of that with this program. It is very easy and so much fun! If you use the trial version, it will have some shapes included and the full version will have even more. I promise you, you will not be disappointed!!!! Also, we hae a lot of great people here that will assist you with your questions.

      Again, welcome and do enjoy the software and the members of the forum.

        Thank you!

        Thank you, ladies, for your warm welcome!

        Yes, Onie, I've downloaded the trial version! And hey - I discovered how to work with the "shapes" for the photos!!! I read the Help ( after all, this is why help files are there, to be read...).

        And thanks, Granny, this was another question I had, if SBM is "expandable", I mean, if we can add stuff to it!

        I'm convinced! I'm buying it!

                    Speaking of special shapes. I was just working on making my own custom shapes to see if it would work ... and it did!

                      Looks like a wonderful page. It is amazing how creative we are all becoming!
                      You did a great job!

                        Thanks. I am still having little issues with the page, but overall I like how the shapes came out. Sometimes the cutout portion of the letters shows through as a faded area and I am not sure why. I have to go in and reapply the shape. Once I figure out why it is doing that, I'll upload the template.

                          Don't tease us Squeak

                          Time to pass on the secret to the custom shapes! I like the shapes we have in the program but would love to have the ability to shape my SCRAPS like I did in paper scrapping. I used to take paper and cut it in Triangle wedges with fancy siscers. Or Cut into DEEP waves. The waves we have on the program are already in a paper design, I would like to pic my own paper to do that and design my own shape of the wave.

                            Squeak,
                            Here's a thought... Try making your letter shapes in larger dimensions ( i.e. 600x600 or 800x800). That gives you more pixels to work with, smoother edges, etc. I'll see if I can whip up a couple of samples

                              Maybe that's the problem. I orignally did them full size in photoshop, then shrunk them down to 100 x 100 because that is the size of custom shapes in SBM. I thought they had to be that way. I will try them larger and see if I still have problems. Thanks for the tip.

                              Onie. Once I get mine working properly, I will pass along the info.
