  1. You need to move the cursor to a darker color by clicking on the eye dropper. The dropper will become stronger in color. Move the circle to desired color.The strength is changed by how wide it is make. Another option is to duplicate text change it to black or whatever color and size it a little larger.

    Hi, I am Mustapha.

    and welcome to the forum family.
  4. Glad that you can again enjoy using your TC. Thanks for letting readers know what you did to get things working again. Now if I can get my internet running so I can respond in a timely manner .....couldn't get to the thread and then would time out.....when I did respond......hopefully things will be as they should be. I was in a hot spot (on the Oregon coast) for the eclipse so because of travelers and news crews we were having issues beyond the usual tourist trade.
  5. Did you delete the Laughingbird Document folder with the 2 files inside? The software DOES NOT overwrite the file and put missing files in. It is seeing them as being there so it doesn't install them.Try again and make sure you download the FREE template files and install them .Adobe Air is an ABSOLUTE need for running TC.
  6. Have you looked at the files and made sure if there was actual content there? Have you checked and made sure you still have Adobe Air on board?
  7. Have you moved or deleted the content from V6? That would have the elements and templates in it.You need that for there to be content, https://www.laughingbirdsoftware.com/updates/
  8. You are running Maverick? I don't think TC 7.2.9 is compatible with Maverick, the "engine' is totally different.I am running Sierra with zero issues

    Purchase date error or...!

    The bought program doesn't overwrite the free one. Uninstall the free demo and then download and install the purchased version from your member's file.You should back up any templates that you have created.

    BTW if you don' t want the gray details just color mask in TC 1 color. Proceed as above.

    Background into silhouette image

    Two step process..To make the mask....First remove the black and save as a Transparent .png. Put on canvas with your picture and/or pictures under neath. Export that as a plain .png. Next remove the blue with Gimp. Then you will have an image shape filled with the images you. want. The grey was left for detail. The white is completely hollow.

    Background into silhouette image

    This is a quick mask of a motorcycle gas tank. Place on canvas atop of your desire photo. Then export as a PLAIN .png. The white shape is empty space.Use your Gimp to remove the yellow from around your photo image/s.
  21. Click on "FILE" and start a new template.
