Learn How to Use Photo Tiling in MyMemories Suite v6

I remember when photo tiling was first added to MyMemories Suite. I could hardly wait to learn how to do it.  I thought it was the coolest feature ever.  It’s very easy to do and really adds something special to a layout.  I recently wrote a tutorial about using the Group tool.  Photo tiling is one of the effects that uses the Group tool.  Below is a page from the tutorial.  You can find the complete tutorial here.

Grouping Elements Tutorial-010

When grouping animals or people be careful not to chop them up!  That is just not right, lol.  Here’s a page I made quite a while ago.  As you can see, it’s sometimes difficult not to chop off a shoulder or some hair.  Remember, you can always ungroup the photo and tweak the placement of each separate piece. But please don’t split anyone down the middle!

Landscapes are pretty safe though and look really neat.

Learn How to Group Alphas in MyMemories Suite v6

I often group items in MyMemories Suite to make some tasks easier.  Alphas are one of my favorite things to use.  Some designer’s kits include really cute alphas.  For a long time, I didn’t use them.  One reason was because it took a lot of time and effort to get them all the same size and lined up just right.  But now MyMemories makes it so easy to line them up, space them evenly and then group them.  Once grouped they’re treated like a single element.

Here’s a page from the Grouping Elements tutorial I wrote.  In this section, you’ll learn just how easy it is to align, space, and group alphas.

Grouping Elements Tutorial-012

This is just one of the many things you can do using the Group tool.  You’ll find the complete tutorial here.

I’d love your feedback.  Please comment to let me know if you learned anything new and how you plan on using the Group tool in one of your projects.

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.

You can get the template free on Digi Scrapping Freebies Facebook page here.  We encourage you to get the freebie and participate in the challenge at Digi Scrapping Divas here.  Please post your layout in the album for this challenge for all to see.
