To start a new Blog Collage project, you can either create a new project or a sub-project of an existing project. Your project most likely refers to your client or event. For example "Smith Wedding" or "Johnson Portrait."
*Please note that more than 20 collages within a sub-project can cause the software to crash on export due to memory limitations.
Add New Project
To start a new project and work in Blog Collage, click New Project on startup of the software OR File > New Project. The New Project pop up will appear.
1. Name your project.
2. Browse or enter the location where you want your project saved. If you don't want to change this, your project will automatically save in your Documents folder.
3. Proceed by clicking Next or Cancel.
Choose Your Design Module
Once you have created your project, you will be prompted to choose which module you would like to use for design, in this case, Blog Collage.
By clicking the Blog Collage icon, you will be able to see any other collages you have created previously (in the case of a new project, such as this one, there are none). Click New Collage to start your subproject.
Name your project, then click "Add Photos" to choose a folder of images to import, or you can drag a folder of images into the image well.
Fundy Designer imports smaller resolution proxy images into the project file. We do this for a couple reasons:
- It makes everything run extremely fast.
- It makes your projects portable.
Once your images are imported into a project, you can disconnect from the external drive or server and keep designing. You only need to reconnect to your full resolution source images when you want to export your project.
