  • Scrapbook MAX! Update (v1.0.4.0) Available!

    We released v1.0.4.0 of Scrapbook MAX! on August 9, 2006. To get the latest release, select Help > Check for Update from the menu bar in Scrapbook MAX!. That will automatically download the patch for you. It's free to anyone who owns an earlier version of Scrapbook MAX!.

    If you have any problems using the "Check for Update" feature from within the software, you can download the update patch directly. Save it to your Desktop and then double-click it to start the patch.

    New Features:
    • Added drag and drop support for images from the FireFox webbrowser.
    • Made it so that when importing Gallery Packs, Scrapbook MAX! checks to see if a file exists with the same name and renames the new gallery content if neccessary.
    • Added the ability to import pages from other scrapbooks into your current scrapbook. This feature can be found by selecting Page > Import from the program menu.
    • Added more information about where files were installed when importing templates and gallery packs.
    • Added the ability to send your scrapbooks directly through Gmail, or your current SMTP server. These settings can be found by selecting Edit > Preferences from the program menu, and then clicking on the "Email" option.
    • Added the option to order online photo finishing directly through Scrapbook MAX!. This feature can be found by selecting File > Publish To > Order Prints Online.
      When you add a new caption or journal text object, the font settings will default to the settings used for the last caption or journal object.
    • Added a new option on the Export Template dialog called "Optimize embellishment sizes". This feature will analyze all of the embellishments added to the project and resize the resource files to the maximum dimensions currently being used in the template. If unchecked, all embellishment resource files will be included in the template at their full size. Using this option can often significantly decrease the size of the exported template. You can export templates by choosing File > Export Template from the program menu.
    • Added the ability to change the location that Scrapbook MAX! uses to load and save projects. By default, the "Scrapbook MAX!" directory inside of your My Documents folder is used. If you want to change this location, first create a text file called "user.ini" and place it in ...Program Files\Scrapbook MAX!\Data. Inside of this ini file, add the following 2 lines of text:

      [Folders]
      BaseFolder=MyNewFolderPath

      where "MyNewFolderPath" is the new folder path you would like to use to save your files (eg. BaseFolder=D:\Scrapbook MAX!) If you still want to access all of your current files, go into your current documents folder and copy the 3 folders "Projects," "Published Files," and "Templates" into your newly created folder.


    Fixes:
    • Fixed a bug where if you dragged and dropped an image file onto the page that had an existing background image, and chose "Background", the page would not be refreshed with the new background image.
    • Fixed a bug where the "Resize Objects" dialog was occasionally showing, even when the page's size was not being changed.
    • Fixed a bug where the scrollbars we not being set properly under certain curcumstances (mostly when switching back and forth between pages.)
    • Fixed a bug where opening damaged scrapbooks would sometimes cause two welcome dialogs to be shown.
    • Fixed a bug where the tooltips on the welcome screen would occasionally display incorrectly.
    • Fixed a bug where the "Clear image" option would not refresh the second time it was used on a page.
    • Fixed some issues with the ruler so that it works properly even at really small zoom levels.
    • Fixed a bug where the scrollbars would sometimes flicker on and off when moving an object near the edge of the screen.
    • Fixed a bug where an undo point was being added for Background Music, even if you cancelled the operation.
      Added an undo point for the ordering you perform when selecting Page > Organize.
    • Fixed a bug where if you replaced an image with one that was almost the same shape, and it was cropped automatically, in rare cases the image could end up all black.
    • Made some optimizations on the file selection dialog.
    • Several other small bug fixes.


    Hope you enjoy!

            Another possibility is that you haven't purchased yet and are using the trial version. If this is the case, you'll need to download the trial version again and install it to see the new features.

                    MNToots is correct! Current pricing is always shown after you upload your images, but before you have to enter your credit card information. It depends on the size of images you want to receive!

                    4x6 - $0.29
                    5x7 - $1.59
                    6x6 - $1.99
                    4x12 - $1.99
                    8x8 - $3.99
                    8x10 - $3.99
                    8.5x11 - $3.99
                    12x12 - $6.99
                    11x14 - $8.99
                    12x18 - $10.99

                    Shipping is $4.95 flat rate in the USA and Canada. Unfortunately, this service is not available for international customers at this time.

                      thank you so much... terrific update.. thanks for listen to the masses!
                      Sad that the printing is not available to us living overseas though! There are so many of us . Can't see why we can't just pay the extra postage? does that make the price uncompetitive?

                        A perfect business oppty for you. Just buy an Epson R1800 (~US$400) and offer prints for AU$10 each. A goldmine waiting to be discovered!

                              Granny, you don't understand my plan...

                              I figured Moonbeam might need technical assistance and I would have to jump on a plane to Oz. I wouldn't charge for the support but simply require room and board (preferably overlooking Shelly Beach or the harbor) for a month or two.
