    Hi Marcus. The templates in the Creator7 will be some of the same templates offered in the Web Graphics Creator (we're adding new ones as well). However, any templates that you've created and saved in Creator7 can't currently be brought over to Web Graphics Creator and modified. We are working on making this happen but need a little more time

    Okay, in a nutshell. The OLD eCover product had 50 eCover templates and 64 3D mockups The NEW eCover product has 75 eCover templates and 85 3D mockups. PLUS with the NEW eCover product, you have the ability to adjust the size of the drop area. You have the ability to create a drop area from scratch and match it to any mockup you have! This is huge! Both products have the same elements.

    What Katie said. The 'software', The Creator 7, is a FREE update and as far as I know, always will be. Templates and element sets are sold as individual sets and are added to the 'software' after installation. Although, keep your eyes open, Marc has been known to give away free graphics from time to time! You may have to answer a survey, or simply be on line at the right time, but it has happened! Several options here. If you want to stick to the desktop only version, there is a monthly club ( subscription) you can join that will save you money on the purchase of additional template sets. Or you can join the Web Graphics Creator, on line only version, and have instant access to everything. That is a monthly subscription too. Or you can continue to simply buy the graphics packs that you want. As Katie mentioned, the NEW eCover Authoring Package is well worth the investment. Not only are there more templates, they are better templates and you will then have the ability to add your own 'mock ups' to TC7 and 'map out' a drop zone on them thereby creating your own eCover template. It's really pretty cool! Let us know if you need more information. Oh, one more quick note. The only 'Staff' at Laughingbird is Marc, Lisa and Dave. Everyone else, including the mods and admins here on the forum are simply users of the software same as you. We help out when we can, but really, Marc and Lisa have the final say.

    Yes, follow Lance's advice! Getting a transparent image happens upon export by using "Transparent PNG". Most of the elements in The Creator7 are without a background and can be exported as such

    Hi Fabi, The Creator 7 was made to produce web graphics, not printed products. That said, you can create an image big enough to print well. Many users here have created T-shirts and other products. The image below was created at 2880 x 2880. It is only 762KB at 72 DPI. It will upload to Vistaprint and looks just fine on a T-shirt. Depending on which service you are using for printed products, you may have to adjust the DPI to 300. You can use a number of 3rd party utilities to do that. I use xnView on a PC. It is a free utility. At 300 DPI the image below is 7.2MB in size. Just remember, increasing the DPI does not increase resolution. The only way to do that would be to use a vector image and The Creator does not support vector images. So, make your graphic as large as you can, up to 2880 x 2880 ( max size that TC7 will export ) and try it out.

    Welcome to the forum. The beauty of Laughingbird's TC (The Creator) is every template can be customized to any theme. Merely "import" an image or images onto a canvas. Or start with an empty canvas.......In fact you can have a custom ELEMENT library.Check out the Pixabay for FREE images. https://pixabay.com/en/photos/?q=pharmaceutical&hp=&image_type=&order=&cat=&min_width=&min_height=

    Hi there, well let me see if I can answer a few of these. You may not like one answer. Sorry for that. Problem 1: Okay. Transferring the software from one computer to another. Really shouldn't do that. You should install the software on the new computer, then move your templates. But, not to worry. Yet. You say you transferred it a while ago? How long ago? What version? If it was v6.x or above, then you should update to the latest v7.2.9 It's free and available from Laughingbird Templates from v5 and before will not work in the new version. At all. Okay, I'll assume ( I know, that's bad ) that you are on a PC. MAC is not that much different. With The Creator installed you should have 2 directories for the program. /My Documents/Laughingbird Documents/Logo Elements and /My Documents/Laughingbird Documents/Logo Libraries. If you have Win10, then /My Documents/ may simply be /Documents/. You can have any folder you like in /Logo Elements and those folders can contain your element graphics. The only graphics ( or files ) in those folders should be .jpg or .png That's it. The only folders in your /Logo Libraries folder should be your template folders. No extra files of any type. Okay, that said ... You say you have your 'logos' on a flash drive and you tried to open one directly into a template. You can't do that. You 'import' a logo. Logo's are jpg or png graphics. I'll assume (again ) that you meant you tried to open a template. If the template was from v5.x or before, it will not open in TC7. Only v5. So again, I need to know what version you are working with, and what version your old templates were made with. Usually, the condition you describe, getting those little 'squares' when you try to open a template, means that the program cannot find the graphics associated with that template. You may need to recreate the template if you still have the graphics somewhere. When you start moving templates, logos and graphics around, TC7 can lose those graphics. When the template is created there is a .tlc file in the template folder that tells the program where all those graphics are, and how to put them together. Once you change directories and move things, you 'break' the template. Sorry. Problem 2: You downloaded software, but can't find it. Well, you also say that you unzipped and installed the files. So, I'll assume ( I do that a lot ) that you can find the software. You just don't know what to do with it after that. It does get confusing with the files you mention. Here's why. The 100 PSD files, are Photoshop files. They are not compatible with TC7. You cannot use those files in the creator until you use some utility, such as Photoshop of GIMP ( GIMP is free ) to convert those graphics to .png Then you can use them. The White Label Marketing course also is not used by TC7. It is a stand alone product that you go through as a training course on Internet Marketing. Has nothing to do with The Creator. The 150 business Characters should all be in a folder located in your /My Documents/Laughingbird Documents/Logo Elements folder. Once there, you should be able to open a template, or start a new template, and use the pull down menu at the top of TC7 to access those graphics. They are not templates. Just graphics that can be used for your templates. Okay. I hope some of that made sense. It is a lot of information. The main thing to do is confirm what version of The Creator ( or The Logo Creator ) you used to create your templates. If it was v5.x or earlier, you'll need to install a copy of v5 to do anything with those. If v6.x or later, you should make sure you have the latest version 7.2.9 installed. Once installed, install one of the graphic packs you have purchased, or install the free graphics. Then copy any v6 and above templates from that thumb drive into your /Logo Templates directory. If none of this makes sense to you, you'll have to submit a support ticket from the Laughingbird website and Marc or Lisa will work with you to get you set up and going. Good luck!

    Just how does this relate to Laughingbird Software and its products?

    Okay. I'm not a MAC user but I'll take a shot. Most common cause seems to be in upgrading to the latest MAC OS, is that your content is moved to a 'cloud' drive. Please insure you are NOT using the cloud drive. Does not work. TC7 is very specific about where content has to be. Second most common problem is that you do not have the latest version of TC7. Select Help/About and verify you have v7.2.9 If neither of those problems are yours, then simply log into your member account at Laughingbird and download your purchases. Then install.
