Studio J: Tips & Tricks

   Today I would like to share with you a few more great feature when working with Studio J.  The first is that Studio J automatically crops your photos to fit in the photo spots. Just drag and drop you photo into place and Studio J does the rest.  From there you can click on the "hand" in the center of the pictures and slide the photo around so that it is just how you want it.  You can also scale in on the photos to cut out empty space so the focus of the photo is what is most important to you.  Remember that if you can't slide the photo over (up, down, left or right) it may be because it is already slid over as far as it can with out going past the edge of the photo.  Simple solution is to scale in on the photo using the tool in the photo menu box and then you can adjust the placement of the photo.

  Another way to spice up your layout is to add text right to a photo.  On this layout I have the picture on the left hand side that has all the kids lined up along the edge of the pool.  Although I know who they all are today others may not and I might forget so I used the title tool to create little titles with their names and then stuck them right on the photo following the edge of the pool.  You can also add other embellishments like the stickease and place them right on your pictures.  The "Good Times" stickease on the second layout or the diamond shapes on the top layout are just two examples.
  I hope these fun tips and tricks make your Studio J experience even better!  If you haven't tried Studio J yet WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR????  It is free to log on and create an account.  All you pay for is your finished layouts!  So get on today and try it out.  Here is a link to my Close To My Heart website.  Just click on the Studio J link in the left hand menu or click on any of the Studio J words in this post and it will take you right to the page to set up an account.
