Lightbulb Custom Picture Package

The book discusses creating custom picture packages by editing the layout from the picture package dialog box. No where in that box do I see an edit layout button. Is this one of the tools or is this something I'm missing in PSE3? Thanks

I am sure I answered this elsewhere, but I'll be darned if I can find it. The problem with the technique is that there are differences between Elements on Mac and PC in a very few places for Elements 3. This just happened to be one of them.

You have to work with the old, manual method of updating the layouts on the PC. You have to create a package and store it properly for it to be available. For example, you can use the following:

I 4 6
0 0 2 3
0 3 2 3
2 0 2 3
2 3 2 3

And save this as a text file in the C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 3.0\shared_assets\layouts folder.

The parameters are separated by a single space. These are:

first line: measure (I=inches), paper width, paper height
second line: display name
additional lines: image placement

The image placement lines will be in the measure used. The first two numbers denote where the upper left corner of the image falls (from left and from top) and the next two define the width and height of the image.

That help?

This thread is in the wrong place...I better move it. (moved to techniques area 9/30/05)
