I found a feature you may want to consider incorporating into the production release of Sparkbooth 7, since it now supports props and other such overlays on photographs.
I've configured my initial computer for final production, to include all my photostrip layouts and overlays. I've also added custom props and organized them into my own sets for customer use. However, when I went to Advanced>export, it didn't permit me to export my custom props collections. I was not sure whether this was automatically exported, so I proceeded with the default check boxes.
I also moved the entire props directory from the original computer to the second computer. When I went to import the application file (.sbs?), it worked exactly as expected--everything else was "copied" except for my custom prop collections.
It's not an issue at this point, but request that if there's a customizable feature/collection in Sparkbooth, that you export that as part of the .sbs file.
Overall, version 7 Beta works fine. I'm interested in your thoughts on this feature request.
If I recall correctly... you have your IT guy install your props into the MAIN Sparkbooth folder directory... and I said that is not how it is done - but you said it was working.... so I did not go any further with it.
Now you can not get the Export to work for your props...
If you had imptorted them into the software the way I showed you, they would all be in the correct directory location for the Import setting to work as they should.
Also in the Stickers settingn you can Export ant of the collections you have that are saved as sparkbooth.sbs files and rename them to whet the files are (sparkbooth.sbs = glasses-props.sbs)
Call me in Skype and I can 'esplain it to you again...
and get it the way it should work. It is not a bug or not working right, it is user error
When we last did a Skype call, you told me that your IT guy
placed all your new props into the main directory folder
(see attached) that the software has the built in stickers...
I told you then, that is not how you add new stickers...
If you call me in Skype, I can 'esplain it to you how it is done
the right way so that when you do a Export,
ALL the stickers catigories will be exported correctly.....
The way you have added your new stickers maybe working now
in this computer, (and I do not understand how???) but they will not be Exported correctly when doing an Export of your system set up
I will review this with John and let you know
we may need to do a TeamViewer session and I can take a look
I will get the TeamViewer download link and post here
(unless John beats me and does it first)
That may be part of what I need to review with John
about the Export ...
NO UGH... 7.0 is a NEW version and has not been fully released yet
and only a handful of users have begun using it...
there may be a few quirks we still need to work out...
and that is why it is Unavailable as a normal Download on the web site
