What is a Template?
A Template is a professionally designed page layout available for instant use in the PrintMaster software. Each template is optimized to assist users in creating complete pages easily and quickly by allowing them to drop in their own photos and text. Most included page elements—such as background papers, graphic embellishments, journaling areas and empty picture boxes—can be repositioned, resized, or deleted from the pages. Pages can also be duplicated, deleted or reordered at any time.
Each template includes it's own set (or kit) of high-resolution (professional print quality) background papers and embellishments (including monograms if applicable), so users can create new pages or change the pre designed pages to their liking. The background papers and embellishments can also be used separately with any other templates or pages designs within PrintMaster. These individual design elements are downloaded and installed directly (along with the complete page designs) into the PrintMaster software for instant use, and are readily accessible through the backgrounds or embellishment buttons in the toolbar. The individual design elements (JPG and PNG files) can also be used with other software design programs (e.g., Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.), but must be copied out or accessed from the PrintMaster application folder where they are installed after download.
Page templates provide several advantages for users because each is optimized to take advantage of PrintMaster's powerful design tools, including insert, delete, and reorder page options, and the proprietary "Fast-Fill" technology. Page Templates (the most common), Calendar Templates, and other configurations are available online for download.
