a good habit to keep a record of the products you use to create your
you are building a page at some time in the future and want to locate
an item you used on a previous page, youíll appreciate having the
names and location of the kits at your fingertips. Additionally, when
you post layouts to an online gallery or submit layouts to
scrapbooking magazines, youíll want to have a list of kits you used
to build the page. There are several ways to keep track of the
products you use as you are creating. Here is one method that works
well for me.
you are creating a layout, each time you use a product, open the
and drag it on top of the scrapbook page. The product preview will
be very small compared to the rest of the layout, so drag it up to
the top left corner using the Move Tool.
click the Layer
of the preview layer which looks like an eyeball at the far left side
of the layer in the Layers Palette. This hides the preview layer so
that you can continue working on the page.
product preview usually contains the name of the kit, the name of the
designer and the website.
you have completed the layout, you will probably have several product
previews stacked at the top left corner of the page. Click on the
of those layers and zoom in close to view them.
> File Info.
Type the information from the previews and record the font names in
the box labeled Description
(PSE) then click OK.
Turn off the layer visibility on the previews again and save your
file. The information will be saved with your layout, so you wonít
forget the names of the products you used. Youíll be able to
locate the product information by accessing File > File Info or
viewing the product previews at the top left corner of your page.
this good habit and youíll thank yourself later.
