Ok I have a wedding coming up and th bride has sent me over a copy of their engagement picture. She wants this include on the template. Everything I have done so far looks less than grand. Anybody ever created this style of layout and want to share an idea?

I attached what I have so far but I hate it

    It appears that you use BLACK as your curtain background and having the layout background also black, the photos have no defined edge.
    You could change the layout background color or add frames around the photo boxes. [simple frame attached] like I added to your sample.

    Attach your SBL file and I can whip one together
    OR if you have Skype, we can connect and I can share my screen and we can put one together ... my Skype user name is ccuvideo and I have done this to help Sparkbooth users around the world. No video needed.
    Let me know and we can get 'er done

    If you are referring to your License email, John would need to make the change IF that is what you are wanting done. NOTE: changing your license email will deactivate all activations that are installed on your 3 computers and you will need to re-activate each with your new email.

    if you want to change the email address of your license key that will
    deactivate all your installs, and you will need to go back and reactivate
    using the new email address. So let me know when you want to do this.

    you asked a question and now it have become lost

    Rich I have to say your layout is awesome. What is the layout size, 4x8?
     
    Also how did you add the gold outline to the pictures?

    no, its 4x6. Stick it in the layout creator as a background and you can
    trace the photoboxes

    Richard and Joe I want to thank both of you for all of your help. Clearly I have a lot to learn on creating great looking layouts. I have done many that I am proud of but you guys are clearly on another level.

    Joe can you tell me how you created the frame overlay?

    I will have to take you up on your offer sometime and use skype for your help.

    Thanks Again to both of you

    Are you in the Detroit area? Metro is a Detroit term...
    I use a few ways to create the frames and I can
    show you the easiest way via Skype...
    then we can talk and I can share my screen.
    ... my Skype user name is ccuvideo and
    I have done this to help Sparkbooth users
    around the world. No video needed.
