Hi there,

I was wondering if if is possible to make rectangular, circle or oval photo's.
In the layout editor I can only add a square photo area.

I did see an example of Button photo layout, but I don't know how this is done.
It seems that there is a circle on top of the square.
Can somebody explain to me how this is done.

    You can use an overlay with a "hole" and position the photo under the ovelay

    You can create your layouts using 3 different PHOTO STYLE formats.
    The same as a normal photo is taken with any camera.
    If you want to create the illusion of a CIRCLE photo,
    best is to create your layout using the Square Style photo boxes
    and add a Circle overlay image to cover the outer area of the square photo.
    Same to create a Diamond illusion...

    Understand that all photos are either Square, or Rectangle or Portrait
    and any other photo image that is not, has been altered/created using
    an overlay to cover the outer area of the photo.

    I could help you learn how to do this using Skype where we can talk and
    I can share my screen to answer all your questions and show you how it all can be done.

    Skype is free to use computer to computer and

    Hi Joe,

    Thanks for you answer.

    Is it possible to make a quick video on the Sparkbooth Youtube chanel how to create a circle overlay ?
    Because I live in a differtent country and we have different timezones, i'ts difficult to contact you by Skype.

    Maybe there are more customers who can take benefit of a video ?

    Gr. Edwin

    I will work on creating a video showing how to make
    a SPECIAL overlay (like circle/star/etc)

    NOTE: there are 3 different types to create
    1) Square - 2) Wide - 3) Portrait
    I will create an example for the Wide (most used) and explain
    what needs to be done for the Square and Portrait styles.

    and post a link when ready...
