How to Use Outside Templates in MyMemories Suite v5

One of the most common complaints I hear about MyMemories Suite is that you can’t use outside templates.  That is, templates that are not included as a part of the software.  While it’s true you can’t use them in the traditional way like you would in PaintShop Pro, PhotoShop, PhotoShop Elements or other photo editing software there is a work-around.  You can use them as a sketch.  What that means is you bring the template jpg in as an embellishment then use it as a map for placement of the elements.  As with any template, you can make changes in embellishments or layout as you like.  However, you’re probably using the template because you like the way it looks so I’d be careful about making too many changes.  I’ve made a tutorial to show you how to use a template as a sketch.  You can find it here.  I hope you find it helpful and I encourage any comments and feedback.  Here’s the layout I made using the template.
