1. New Software Notice alert!

    The new Web Graphics Creator (version 4.0) will be out soon.

    For now, version 3.0 is still active and works great on most Windows machines. It no longer runs on Macs using Lion or greater... (but the new version will fix this)

    So hang in there! It's almost done!

How do I?.....

    Hi all...

    First time poster here. So far I've been able to work out most of my
    problems with ECC on my own. But, I can't seem to figure out how
    to save a 3D book image as a .gif o jpg. file So that I can just have
    a static image.

    Also, I can't seem to figue out where the files go when I export them.
    I hope these questions aaren't too dumb!!

    New to ECC

    Jack :thankyou: :thankyou:

    Never Mind..

    Hello

    As I usually do, I have figured it all out. I'll try to come up with better
    qustions in the future. I have tried out several other cover programs
    and none come close to this! :banan: :banan:

    Hi Zip!
    Nice to hear all is working for you.

    The question you originally asked was a good one.
    There is really no way to save a static image from the spinning (.swf) Flash modules - they only save to Flash format.

    How did you take a static picture of the Flash file? I'm sure others will want to know.

    Thanks for the post!

    How do I?.

    Hi Marc,

    Thanks for answering. Actually it wasn't in the flash mode, but in the
    Photo Relistic mode. I saved it using the "snapshot" in the drop down
    menu. I saved it as a jpg. However, now I have tried it again and it
    didn't work. I am just trhying to get a regular still image to use on a
    web page.

    i still have a lot to learn. I downloaded the tutoral by Homebiz, and
    it helped, but sure would like some more.

    Thanks agian, keep up the good work!

    Jack :thankyou:

    Hi Jack.

    I'm sorry for the confusion..

    When you right click over a 3D model in the PhotoRealistic area, you'll get a drop down menu. The last item, as you've pointed out, is a 'snapshot' of the model. This is a way to save the position you like. Move the model around a bit to a few more positions. Each position can be saved and brought back to life by right clicking over the model.

    To export the final image, click on the little camera icon at the bottom of the screen. (if you're using version 2.1 - its a clipboard icon).

    This will bring up a dialog box.
    Here, you can name your image "MyImage.jpg" and it'll save your box shot as a jpeg!

    Hope this helps clear things up a bit!

    - Marc

    How do I?

    Thanks Marc,

    I think i've got the PR section just about figured. Now I can move
    on to that spinning thing.

    Thanks so much for all of your speedy responses!

    Back to work......

    One more thing....

    Me again....

    One more slight problem. I am using the templates which were
    included in the tutoral, however, I am putting text as far to the top
    as possivle, the image shows up with the text down too low, (or in case
    of text at the botom, it's too high) What's up with this?

    :helpnow:
