Hello. I exported a new layout from from Paddee.com and it asks what software I use. I tell it spark booth and it still saves it as a PNG. I can not get my layout imported in the program. When it does import in it is the wrong size and the picture boxes are off. Please help

    Most of the layouts that are available to get/purchase
    online are created in the Bleed Over size that is actually
    larger that the actual 4X6 layout that the printer uses.

    This is not a problem... just an inconvenience for those of us
    who do not know what to do with it...

    Sparkbooth Support to the rescue....
    (give me a second to put on my cape)

    All you need to do is Create a NEW layout using
    the Paper size 6X4 (DNP) that is the Bleed Over size
    of 1240px X 1844px that is larger than a 4X6 print

    DO NOT WORRY your printer will only use the center
    of it... that is 1200px X 1800px and the extra edges will not be printed.

    Only caution is when creating an bleed over size layout
    is to make sure you do not have anything near the edges...
    stay at least 30px away from the edges to make sure
    your text/graphics are not cut off.

    I just tested your layout and I do have a concern...
    (see attached)

    The sample I show has the area in RED that is
    out side the 1200 X 1800 range and your text is
    (IMO) too close to the edges...
    If you can not go back to the Paddee web site and
    redo (FREE) I can make some adjustments that will fix it for you.

    Let me know... SB Super Support is here to save Your day LOL

    If you still need my help...

    I have made all the adjustments and
    I have the layout ready that will work
    with not cutting off any text.
    (see sample attached - ignore the RED border)

    Let me know if you want me to return a NEW SBL file by email
