Some New Features

Auto Populate your Books

With StoryBook Creator 3.0 you can auto populate the pages of your books.  The steps to do this are;

  • On the Welcome Page, click Create a new project
  • Select our book size and Template
  • Click Next
  • Click on Add Photos (browse to your photo folder on your computer and select the photos)
  • Name your project
  • The project defaults to C:\Documents and Settings\My Documents\Creative Memories\StoryBooks.  If you want to save it somewhere else use the Browse button to select the new location.
  • Click Create and our photos will be automatically loaded onto the pages. 

For further information use the Help function in StoryBook (blue ?) and type "How to Create a New Project"

A friend of mine tried this with 410 photos and it took about 20 minutes to auto populate her book.  The layout was amazing and beautifully done.  Then all she had to do is add the journaling.  Great NEW feature!!

Convert Book Sizes

You can now convert your book sizes down.  The 12 x 12 can convert to 8 x 8 and the 11 x 8.5 can convert down to 7 x 5.  You can not convert up in size. 

Font selection

New to the font selection.  You can now type the first letter of a font when selecting one and it takes you to that letter.  For example if I wanted a font that started with T, I would type the letter T.

Alright... I'm now working in Storybook 3.0 and found something REALLY cool!!! When you import photos you can delete more than one at a time or what the program calls "remove photo from list." Previously you would have to do this one photo at a time... it was quite a pain! YEAH FOR STORYBOOK!!!!

That is the coolest trick to be able to delete multiple photos at one time.

All we have to do is hold the CTRL key down while left clicking on each picture. Click the photo bar on the side of one photo and click on "remove photo from this list."
