What do you do when the Strokes on your Text Shapes overlap giving you undesirable results? This tip will give you two techniques that will eliminate the overlap and help you achieve a nicely outlined title. These techniques are also perfect for outlining the word art embellishments in your digital art library.
Explore the Emboss Filter, an Artisan filter that mimics the look of relief sculpture carving.
The introduction of Seamless Layflat Papers has opened up the ability to add continuous paper designs across two pages in your Standard or Hinged Layflat bound books. Let us show you how easy it is to get the best resolution papers for your bound book projects.
In this tip, while we will focus specifically on tagging word art, we will still be considering the general concepts involved. Hopefully, you are convinced that tagging is a very personal task – it is not ‘one size fits all’ – and tagging word art is especially personal.
A question that we see often is "can you use the 12x12 papers from your content library in your Seamless Layflat projects?" With the launch of the Seamless Layflat product line, this may be confusing. You are seeing lots of gorgeous papers designed in 24x12 size to perfectly fit across Seamless Layflat papers and think that these are necessary for your Seamless Layflat projects.
You undoubtedly have lots of Blueprints and templates in your digital art collection. While some of those Blueprints and Templates were designed for a Double Page Spread (DPS), they cannot be used in a Seamless Layflat project without some extra prep work.
Photos in an Artisan project can be edited using an Image Editor. They can be edited on the page or in the photos panel.
We all love a story, and as a result we can end up with lots of journaling on your page. When your text needs to fit within or wrap around an element, you may need to make adjustments to your text to enhance the readability or to enhance the design.
If you want to change the whole text box, using the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) is the fastest way to make the adjustment. With one click, the font, size, formatting, and/or color can be changed. If you want to change individual words within the text box, use the Font Operations Panel.
We love designing with fonts on our Artisan pages! Our computers come with pre-installed fonts, but very often we are looking for more than the standard fonts. It won’t be long before you have hundreds if not thousands of Windows installed fonts. When you create a "live" text box (the text is editable) in Artisan, the software is using the Windows Fonts Folder to create that text. When you change computers and that same font is not on the new computer, the "live" text box will default to the standard font, Microsoft Sans Serif.
The calendar event list is one of the many software options available to Artisan 5 users. In addition to using the built-in holiday lists that are available when you create a calendar project, this option allows you to create personalized calendar lists that can be added to any calendar project.
This is the final tip in our tip+webinar series on design principles, so it’s fitting that we conclude with the concept of unity.
If you are new to Artisan, or if you don't consider yourself to be computer-savvy, you may read terms that we use often and casually but not know what they mean. I've had several requests for a glossary of terms, so I decided to start with the Artisan work space.
If you are in the habit of tagging your content, you may come to a point where you would like to tweak the tags that you've chosen. Maybe you realize the system you are using isn't working for you, or maybe you don't have a system, or you have multiple systems and they are fighting with each other! It may be that you want all of your tags to start with an upper case (or a lower case) letter or you want them to all be either singular or plural. Perhaps you have one tag that has lots of one particular item in there - enough that that item needs its own tag - so that the other items become hard to find. Whatever the reason, there are some very simple ways to refine your tagging system without having to start over.
Installed fonts make it easy to turn your favorite fonts into shapes that can be used with your favorite Artisan tools. There are several ways to create shaped text in Artisan. This tip will showcase some of the ways you can use installed fonts and why you will want to use them.
Photos can be added to your project at any point in the creation process. Once a photo is added to your project, you can use the Photo Panel to view, sort, add, or remove photos from your project.
