    Hi Linda,

    When you say it doesn't work, can you be a bit more specific? Do you get an error message, and if so, what does it say? If you can tell us exactly what is going wrong, it will be easier to figure out the solution that you need.

    Although it sounds like you've probably read this tutorial, I'm pasting it here just in case :

    http://www.scrapbookmax.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13

    The section "How to Create Booster Packs" is what you'll want to read.

    Let us know what is happening, and someone will try to help you out!

    Cheers,
    Karin

      Booster packs

      I am with Linda, I am not computer illiterate, but I am not a programmer either. Maybe a update on instructions is in order. I have read it several times now and I still don't get it.

      It is not very clear on were that ini.file notepad file goes. I can understand making it, but do you just put it inside the zipfolder with the embellishments?
      Why did they not create a import options for these files as well, as they did in the template import situation. I think a lot of us would like to have more specific information. What may seem elementary to you guys, is not necessarily the same for the rest of us.

        Let's clear something up. Making "booster packs" is not necessary unless you are a designer who is creating content for sale or distribution to others. It's definitely an advanced thing to create .SMB files, but it's something that you do not need to do in order to use Scrapbook MAX!. They are designed to be very easy to use by Scrapbook MAX! users though - you simply double click an SMB file and it adds the content to your software.

        Otherwise, if you just have an image you got from a web site or whatever and you want to use as an embellishment in Scrapbook MAX!, simply drag and drop it onto your page!

        Want to share a single "embellishment" you made? It's just an image file. SMB files are archives of dozens of images. They're great for designers of content, but need a bit of work to create them. Open up an .SMB file using Winzip and you'll see what is going on very quickly - especially with the instruction at hand!
        Scrapbook MAX! 2.0 is here!. It's simply better digital scrapbooking software!

            Marion, I am currently creating a tool to simplify the process.

            Linda, if you just have a single jpg you can just drag it into your embellishments folder if you like, that folder is usually:
            C:\Program Files\Scrapbook MAX!\Gallery\Images\Embellishments

                  [QUOTE=Corey]Marion, I am currently creating a tool to simplify the process.

                  Thank you Corey,
                  I understand the drag and drop feature and I don't need it for myself, but it would just simplify the sharing process. I know how to upload a zipfile, but not how to make it install itself for others to share. Especcially for newer members this would be nice.

                  Any help you can give is appreciated. You are a real sweetheart!

                    With the new tool you can just click to add images, type in your info, and click a button - the tool will create the finished embellishment for you and place it in whichever folder you specify.

                      Update

                      Ok

                      I worked out this much
                      I open the the folder that i save my Embellishment in
                      Then i open the file C:\Program Files\Scrapbook MAX!\Gallery\Images\Embellishments i found it by going to Start then Run the computer found it for me as i carn't seem to find it when im in scrapbook max
                      Then i made a new folder in C:\Program Files\Scrapbook MAX!\Gallery\Images\Embellishments named Linda's file
                      Then i draged the Embellishment to Linda's file in C:\Program Files\Scrapbook MAX!\Gallery\Images\Embellishments
                      It works
                      But the type is a PNG image
                      What do i do to change this file to a smb file or is it smt?
                      I think a smt file is for templates so when people download it will take the downloady to the right place in scrapbook Max.

                          Update

                          i have placed my embellishments in Scrapbook max

                          First i found the right folder to do this i went to Start then Run, the computer found it for me - C:\Program Files\Scrapbook MAX!\Gallery\Images\Embellishments, Then I made a new folder named Linda's file.
                          Then I opened the embellishment and draged it into - C:\Program Files\Scrapbook MAX!\Gallery\Images\Embellishments - Linda's File.
                          It worked
                          But it is a PNG Image!
                          How do you change it to a smb file or is it a smt file????
                          I think the smt file is for Templates so when you download it places the file into the right file.
                          The thing is after i have placed the file in the right file how do i share this does it have to be a smb file

                            My best recommendation is to await the embellishment maker. I should be done today. See attached preview.
