1. Rotate text easily
2. Save your preferred font face
You no longer need to spend time looking for your favourite font for your text. Once you enter text in your preferred font , just click ‘Set as default’ as seen in image above. Your preferred text settings (colour, size and type) will immediately be saved and applied throughout your entire photo book. After closing the Photo book Creator, your preferred text font will still be saved for your next book project.
3. Save your preferred layout out designs as favourites
No need to keep searching for that designs you like – just go to ‘Insert’, click on ‘Frame’, Mask, or Clipart, select the specific design you wish to save and click on the star icon (as shown in image above). This automatically saves the design in a ‘Favourite’ folder (see image below), which can be found on the top of the drop down menu per design category.
4. Rotate without altering the size of your photo
5. Auto fill has improved
6. The tab ‘Select’ is now in a different spot
We had a lot of feedback from customers who found the location of the ‘Selection’ tab somewhat confusing – so we replaced it! You’ll know know which photos you’ve actually used by looking for photos with the green checked icons.
7. Save the layout without the designs
Previously, saving how photos are laid out on a page would mean saving the designs used on that page as well (see right page of the image above). Now you can save just the layout (see right page of the image below) – handy, if you want to apply consistent layout throughout your book. To do this, just click on the page layout you like > click on the ‘Page’ tab > and then click ‘Save Current Layout’.
8. Mirror page button has a new name
The button that was formerly called ‘Mirror page’ is now changed to ‘Mirror layout’ and is in a different place (see picture below). The functionality has not changed, only the name.
