Using Templates to order and deliver Print Packages
Using a special template to handle your packages is an easy and flexible solution for a wide range of package types. Simply design a template big enough to fit in all of the sizes (eg. 6 5x7's and 4 4x5's), save it and add it as a new Layout Order to your price list at the "package" price in the Price List Setup (under Orders menu).
When the client wishes to purchase this package, you can select the template (when in "Working with Layouts", "Thumbnail View") and double-click on it to added it to the album file. You can then drag images into the layout (see section below for useful shortcut when doing this) then order it!
To add some extra pizazz to this, you can use an overlay image on your template to provide visual clues for both you and your client as well as extra items. As an example, see this QuickTip movie: Setting up Packages using Templates. The template and original layered Photoshop file used in this movie can be freely downloaded from our ProSelect Resources page. See the notes below on how to edit this file for your own purposes.
