YES I am sure all layout templates that you can buy
on line are compatible but you will need to create
a NEW layout using the Paper size 6X4 DNP
because all the layouts sold on line are created
with a larger size (called bleed over) and Sparkbooth
uses (as default) the size that is the actual size of a 4X6 layout @ 300 DPI
If you have ANY issues with the layout...
post it here and I will be able to help you

Sorry no... the one I have looks like that one but is not the exact same layout. PLUS if I had the original layout, when you purchase layouts you agree to not Sell/Give away/ or trade layouts that you purchase.
Mike Bendor creates a lot of layouts and sells them.
Anyone here who would purchase a layout and break the agreement by giving it away would be violating that agreement. I personally will not help people who would do that. Sorry
The layout came with files... There is a Background image
and possibly an overlay image..
Start by opening the Sparkbooth software in Settings and
go to the Photo Layout page...
Next click the Layout Creator icon (square with pencil - above lightning bolt icon)
check to make sure the layout is set up for the WIDE photo boxes
(near top left - the icon that has the wide looking box)
In the layout creator top left click the icon New layout
and in the window that opens - Name it something "Gatsby"
Next in the Paper size click the drop down and scroll down
to the 6X4 DNP and select it.
Click ok and you should have a portrait blank layout.
Top right area you add the Background image with the paper clip
it will fill the background of the blank layout...
This can all seem difficult...
We should Skype and you will see how easy it really is
my Skype email is ccuvideo @ gmail . com (no spaces)
Next step is adding the overlay image
DO NOT add the Overlay image from the top right
(under where you add the Background image)
add it using the Add image icon top center
This way you can place the photo boxes
over the overlay window and send each photo box
BACK (behind the overlay)
Next add the first photo box and size it to fit
the size of the top overlay window
when you add another photo box, it will be
the same size so all you need to do is
place it over the next window
(Repeat for the 3rd photo box)
Now click on photo box 1 and click the
down arrow icon (on right side) to send
the photo box behind the overlay image.
Now you can add your Text (T icon) and
make it any size/color/font you want.
Let me know if you need any more help or have more questions.
If we Skype, you will be able to watch how it is done
and we can talk and review how easy it really is.
We are now connected in Skype. When you are online today
you will see my reply about adding Fonts...
All software uses the Fonts that are on the computer. To add a new font to the computer, you would download it to the Fonts folder and install it..
Call me in Skype and we can talk and I can show you how to get this Gatsby layout all set up and how easy it is to add the Fonts that came with the layout.
I will be available after 11:30am ET (I am in Michigan)

This is Matthew with https://www.magicpb.com and I want to thank you for
helping me with sparkbooth last year. When you have a free moment I was
wondering if we can set up a meeting as I would like to learn how to make a
logo with and without jpg files. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.
