  1. HI everybody!
    We had a few issues this week. I've been behind the scenes working to secure both Laughingbird Software and the Web Graphics Creator sites. I've done it and everything should be working smoothly now.
     
    If you're not able to see The Web Graphics Creator in full, try Logging out, then clearing your cache:
     
    If you had troubles downloading your Laughingbird downloadable software, that's working now as well.
     
    My humble apologies for the troubles.
    I had to do this, so it's better for us all - but it did cause a little chaos on the backend 😛

  2. Hi Terry!

    I have responded to your question in the old support area.
    (We have a new support system now: https://laughingbirdsoftware.ticksy.com/)

    Also, one of your past posts, you mentioned that you couldn't get your profile information.

    You were trying to visit:
    https://www.laughingbirdsoftware.com/members/my-profile/

     

    But the actual URL is:
    https://www.laughingbirdsoftware.com/my-profile/

    Just setting the record straight  :D

     

    AND, I want to humbly apologize for not being here in the forum.

    I have let this slip forum slip away from me. I'll fix that.

  4. HI there @Charles Scarlatta IV  :D

    Thanks for posting.

    This bizarre error happens to me as well. It is a bug, but for the life of me I can't figure out how it happens. I can't ever replicate it to test - it just ... happens. 1f641.png

    The solution is to quite (force quite if you have to) the software.
    Then, open your documents folder on your computer. You'll see another folder called "laughingbird Documents" remove this folder (just drag it to your desktop. Don't delete it)

    Then, launch the Logo Creator again.
    (it will create a brand new EMPTY Laughingbird Documents folder - you won't have any logos or graphics)

    Create something on the canvas. Text, and import an image (use the FILE > IMPORT menu option and find any graphic you may have on your computer).

    Now, Export this image directly to your desktop.

    It'll work fine.

    THEN! Exit out of the software again and put the Laughingbird Documents folder back into the Documents folder (you can replace the 'empty' LB folder. No worries)

    The software should work again.

    Let me / us know!

  6. #LB30DayChallenge Hi Everybody!
    This is Day 11 of our 30 day challenge!
     
    Start a Viral topic in your Facebook group
     
    ... For example, ask a question like "How do you plan to start your week?" or create one of those viral puzzles - They really get people talking in your group. (and when your members talk and reply, Facebook actually boosts the post even more so MORE members see the post!)
     
    It works great and keeps your Facebook group active in their streams :D
     
    Here's an example from the ViralPuzzle template set:

  7. Day 10:
    Consider creating a design for 'niche' markets. Find a template from any of the template sets. Think of a niche group you'd like to create an ad or a banner for, and then create it!  In the example below, I used one of the templates from The Business Card Creator and modified it for a (fake) Yoga site :D

    (the original template can be found in The Creator Bundle package:

    (This is Day 8 of my Thirty-Day Challenge for this month. Click on the hashtag above to see past days you may have missed)

    30Day Challenge Day 8:
    Create a group on Facebook (if you haven't yet, you should! It's a blast). Then, on a specific day of the week - at the same time every week - create a post that allows your members to interact with the theme of that day!

    I used one of the templates in The Mockup Creator for this example idea

    And here's what I created with the template:

    Hi gang!
    (This is Day 7
    of my Thirty-Day Challenge for this month. Click on the hashtag above to see past days you may have missed) :D
    Happy People sell more stuff! When you're doing your sales graphics, make sure to have smiling happy people in the graphic. Take a selfie and put yourself into one of the templates! You can easily add text and other images over your own photo

    The graphics below were created with The People Pak 3 template set:

    30 Challenge Day 4:
    Take a template from any set and modify it to fit your site's look and feel. In the examples below, I've used one of the templates in the Social Media set and have modified it in two very different ways with just a few new graphics and a new color scheme. Creation time: 30 minutes (because I kept changing things :D ).

  12. Hi @TexasZman and @Shori
    Thanks for posting here in the forum.


    First, let's make sure you're using the latest version of The Creator (v7.2.9). You can see what version you're using when you pull down the ABOUT menu. You can update here if you're not seeing v7.2.9:

    https://www.laughingbirdsoftware.com/updates/

    If you ARE using v7.29, then here's the scoop with the software: You need to actually click on the image. Sounds silly, I know - but the software is programmed so that the mouse touches a 'pixel' 
    If you click in the hole of the letter 'A' for example, you'll be selecting the image UNDERneath the 'A' Make sense? I've tried to fix this - but, it's based on a pixel touch. So let's see if this makes a difference.

    As for the slowness you mention Shori, that's not good. I haven't experienced this. Do you have a lot of other apps open?

    So, both of you check for now - make sure you're running version 7.2.9 and post back here if you can  :D

  13. Hi All!
    I've been watching my Brother Dave create his "30 Day Challenge" - he puts up a different character each day. It inspired me :D So, I'm starting my own 30 Day Challenge: I'll be taking one Laughingbird Software template each day from one of our template sets and modifying it. My goal is to modify it in under 20 minutes - and to also inspire you with some cool ideas. :D
