  • help on my first layout

    Hey everyone - loving the friendly feel of this forum!
    Have finally purchased the full version (though was too afraid to check out the us to aussie exchange rate so hope i don't get too nasty a surprise on the visa!). Anyway i have done my first layout - it took ages because i kept moving things from here to there but am still not really happy with it. I think its because so many others here do such amazing things mine pale in comparison.
    Anyway i was hoping if i posted it here people would be willing to give me some constructive criticism or suggestions. Anyway before i do that i was wondering is there anything i should know (eg: how many kb/meg its allowed to be) before I clickthe attach file button on my post - i'm new here so i don't want to stuff up before i make friends!!!!!!

    hi nancee

    if you click the manage attachments button below the message box it will tell you all the file sizes and which type of files allowance is allowed

    its 5mb for a sbm file (which is what a template layout is saved to)

    look forward to seeing your first post, dont worry about what other peoples layouts look like every layout is beautiful

      Hi there, welcome to scrapbookmax! I havent been here too long, but I am already addicted!
      For heaven's sake dont put your work down before you even start. Some of the pages are brilliant I agree, and I was a bit overawed at first, but just do what you like, as long as you like it, that's all that counts. Everyone is different, we all like different things, and people do leave some nice comments, so just enjoy it! Look forward to seeing your pages in the gallery,
      Susan

        You are meant to have fun on here, don't feel inferior! A lot of people use other programmes such as Photoshop in conjunction with Scrapbook Max and do very clever stuff. I'd love to and maybe one day (in the distant future when I don't work!) I will have a go. My son (with a youngbrain!) says it's easy, but it's not to me. However I will plod along and with the support of the forum do what I can. If I compared to others on here I wouldn't do anything. Relax and enjoy, what you do is yours and those that matter will love it. People on here aren't critical of others anyway, we all start somewhere. x

          One of the things to really appreciate here is that folks DON't critique your layouts and they support true good stuff you do!! That is more helpful and encouraging to the learning process!! I don't like other sites criticisms of others templates..DO this, No NO..do THAT..everyone differs in what they like and DON't like..Here..no one makes suggestions unless really necessary..Because of that I go ahead and post layouts knowing they aren't the BEST in the bunch..but I have fun..BECAUSE they encourage FUN!!! Love this place and the people in it!! We LOVE the effort!!! I've only been doing this going on three months now..and improving all the time and have so much room to grow!! ENJOY!! We LOVE your enthusiasm for what you work at!!! That's what they grade you on!!!

                  Some of the brilliant artists have shared their embellishments and layouts.. you should check those out! I, however, prefer simpler pages... with not alot of embellishment on it. I prefer focus on journaling and on the picture itself. Your going to find alot of different styles and abillites.

                        OMG Marion, Giving Rosana the gimp is like giving her a manual to fix an american car! LOL I have for the life of me can not figure out that gimp! twice now I have downloaded it and twice now I have deleted it! Maybe the 3rd time will be the charm.
                        But anyway Hi Nancee we all cant wait to see your work! I am sure it will be great! Everyone is sooo different and that is what makes this place so great!
                        I have to agree with the rest of these folks! this place is a great place to be and I dont even get payed for saying that! HEY maybe I should! LOL
                        So Have some fun do it anyway you want and dont be shy, we all were at first but that will pass very quickly!

                          Carol, Linda posted some instructions a while ago on using gimp. They were so simple to follow that even I could do it. These are the instructions I gave to Rosana using Babel translater.

                          Once you do it, it is really fairly easy and you wonder why you didn't get it before. Linda did a great job giving step by step instructions. Don't give up yet!

                              here goes - my first layouts

                              Hi
                              Just posting my first layouts as I've asked so many questions and got so much help I thought I better show I'm putting it all to good use.
                              Hope its o.k to post it here rather than in the layout gallery (partly because I can't work out how to get them into the layout gallery!)
                              I'm not sure about the animal one and would welcome some suggestions of how to improve it. (I need to put several photos on one page mostly as I am planning to get these all printed as a photobook and want to make one of the whole of last year so it would get too expensive otherwise.)
