Tips & Tricks
Spin Your Photos
The Photo Wheel control lets you zip through all the photos you've loaded, so you can preview them in place on your layout.
Even if the new photo has a different shape (tall instead of wide, for example), RocketLife automatically scales it to fit the space.
The whole calendar is your canvas: You can customize the grid area of the calendar project as well as the top section.
Drag a photo of each person in your family onto his or her birthday square, or add a placeable graphic such as a flower or balloon.
The Copy to Background command transforms a photo into a unifying background texture.
Can't decide which version of the same scene to use? Put one in the background to add depth and context to your story.
The Make Favorite Photo command (in the Tools drop-down menu on a selected photo) enlarges the selected photo and shrinks the rest to emphasize the photo you want.
Select the Make Photo Full Page command instead to fill the entire page with the photo.
You can add captions to anything: the page, a graphic, a photo, or even to a floating text box.
Click the Text: More Transparent button a few times to blend text into the background for an elegant effect. This technique is particularly nice for headlines and quotations.
