Shown below are Frequently Asked Questons regarding use of the Photo Button Design Studio

Unable to upload a photo

Q. I'm having trouble trying to upload the photo I want to use to the Photo Button Design Studio. Any idea what the problem might be?

A. Chances are, it's one of two things.

First, the Photo Button Studio can only use images that are saved in .jpg or .bmp formats. If you are trying to use any other file format, it won't work.

The second possibility would come into play if your image is from a digital camera. If it is, there's a good chance the file is simply too large to upload. Modern digital cameras can create files that are huge and simply too large to use in the Photo Button Design Studio. However, if this is the case, there's a easy way to reduce the size of your photo and it's FREE to use.

Simply go to http://www.freeonlinephotoeditor.com/, upload your photo and then follow their instructions to can reduce the size of your photo. Then it should work in the Photo Button Design Studio.

Dotted Lines Around the Edge of the Button

Q.
Will the dotted lines that show around the edge the button design show on my buttons / stickers when they are made?

A. No, they won't.

The dotted lines are there to keep customers from placing the text on their buttons / stickers too close to the edge of their design. If you try moving text past those dotted lines, you would notice the text would begin to disappear. Part of your photograph can wrap around the edge of the button, but your text cannot.

Disappearing text

Q.
If I move my text past the edge of the dotted lines on my design, it begins to disappear? Why is this happening?

A. When makings buttons, some of the design goes over the edge and tucks up underneath the button. What you are seeing is an advanced feature that keeps you from inadvertently positioning your text too close to the edge of your design.


Deleting a text field

Q. I inadvertently added a new text field to my design. But when I use the delete key on my keyboard it doesn't delete the text field.

A. To delete a text field, move your mouse over the text field you wish to delete and click on it. In doing so, the cursor will turn into a four-way arrow. This indicates that the text field has been selected. Now click on "Delete Text Field" (shown below) which is located to the right of your design and that text field will be deleted.

Changing type styles

Q. How do I change the text I put on my photo button to a different type style?

A. To change type styles, move your mouse over the text field you wish to change and click on it. In doing so, the cursor will turn into a four-way arrow. This indicates that the text field has been selected. In the box to the right, now click on "ADV" (shown below) which is an abbreviation for advanced tools. You can now change the type style and further modify the look of the text, if you wish.

Outline Text

Q. I would like to add an outline color around my text, the way you did it around "Princess Amy". How do I do that?

A. To add an outline color to your text, move your mouse over the text field you wish to add the outline and click on it. In doing so, the cursor will turn into a four-way arrow. This indicates that the text field has been selected. In the box to the right, now click on "GLOW". (shown above)

Now click on the box to the right of "GLOW COLOR". Doing so will give you access to the glow color selections. Start by changing the number next to "GLOW SIZE" to 4. (if you leave the number at 0 or 1, the color will not show).

Next select one of the default colors for your outline, or if you prefer, click on the picker window and drag your mouse around until you find just the right color.

If you wish, you can now go back to the Glow Number and make the number larger to add more of an outline.
