Tech Tip: Digital Art and Windows File Explorer

Artisan operates by looking at various windows folders on your computer. This tip will review several ways you can use Windows Explorer to manage your digital art.

Tech Tip: Computer Talk

Today's tip is part of our ongoing Tip+Webinar series, Computer Basics for Artisan Users.

Tech Tip: Archiving Art Kits

If you're a digital art junkie (oops, I mean collector) like I am, you may find that your Commercial Art Kit folder is beginning to get LONG!! If you've been a digital scrapper for a long time (like over ten years), you may have a lot of digital art that is a bit dated or stale, or some that you've used so many times that you're ready for something fresh. Perhaps you once used pre-designed pages as your go-to, but now you start with Blueprints, templates, or blank pages and those PDP kits are sort of in the way. Or it could be that you have so much digital art that you and your computer are overwhelmed - you have a hard time finding your newer kits and your computer is struggling for space.
