Pixum Photo Book software - best of features
What does layout mean?
A layout consists of one or several frames which serve as image areas for photos and texts. You can edit those frames by changing their position, size and alignment or even add new layout frames.
Layout frames for photos
Add your photos to layout frames by using drag & drop. Now, you can change the image section by pulling the layout frames.
Layout frames for texts
You need to activate a layout frame saying "Your text" by clicking on it in order to be able to add text. Now, you can also change the font size and colour as well as the background of the text box.
You can find detailed information on layouts in the help area of the Pixum Photo Book software.
What does style mean?
A style is an order of layout frames and background elements. You create a professional touch for your Pixum Photo Book if you use the same style for all pages. From version 4.6 on, you can choose a professional style for your Pixum Photo Book.
Styles of the Pixum Photo Book assistant
You can choose a style in the Pixum Photo Book assistant which opens automatically when you start to create a new photo book. You can either choose from templates of various categories or create your own style. If you do not find the perfect style, you can download additional styles in our software.
You can find detailed information on styles in the help area of the Pixum Photo Book software.
What does background mean?
A background forms the area of a photo book page around the layout frames. You can find many backgrounds under "designs".
You can choose from many different backgrounds for special occasions like "wedding", "soccer" or "nature" but also backgrounds of one colour or multicoloured. If you do not find the perfect background, you can download additional backgrounds from the internet. You can set a background for a single- or double page and for your whole Pixum Photo Book.
Photo as background
It is also possible to choose one of your own photos as a background. Simply add your photo, right-click it and select the background option of your choice from "more image options". Of course, you can still edit your photo afterwards.
You can find detailed information on backgrounds images in the help area of the Pixum Photo Book software.
What are clipart images?
Clipart images are object-oriented graphics that can be resized without loss. They seem like drawings in a cartoon because they are composed exclusively of monochrome illustrations.
Choose a clipart image
The clipart images are part of the menu "design" where you can choose from many categories. Furthermore, you can download additional free clipart images from the internet by clicking the button "download more". They are installed automatically and are available immediately.
You can find detailed information on clipart images in the help area of the Pixum Photo Book software.
Working with text boxes
All texts are written in text boxes which are not included in most of the layouts. However, you can add text boxes manually and change their size and position like placing them at a slant.
You can also adapt texts in different ways like changing the font, font size and text colour as well as background colours. The software offers an integrated spell check that you can turn on and off.
You can find detailed information on text editing in the help area of the Pixum Photo Book software.
Working with Photo Show
You can edit your photos in the Photo Show. Simply double-click on the selected photo to open the Photo Show.
The Photo Show offers many different options to edit your photos. For example, you can view and edit detailed information of your photo. You can also use effects like black and white, sepia and mirror or change brightness, contrast and colours. Additionally, you can crop your photo and edit red eyes.
You can find more information in our "help" area.
