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!

    Hi 2r.
    Thanks for the post.

    ... interesting.


    Make sure, when you export (by clicking on the little camera icon), that you actually type in an extension (.jpg, .gif, .bmp, .png ... etc).

    If you don't type an extention, the file (apperantly) will export as a .txt (Text) file.

    We created this export method to be flexible. Type in "My-eCover.Jpg" and you'll get a Jpeg image. Type in "My-eCover.Gif" and you'll get the file exported as a .Gif.

    Other supported files: PNG, BMP, TIFF, and .PSD (Photoshop, but not layered).

    Without typing in an extention, you'll get a .txt file.
    We're fixing this little glitch.

    Hope this helps some!

    - Marc

    :bighug: I haven't gone back to see if that's the problem, but I'm sure that's the problem...I saw some where in this forum that you had to save as .png or what ever , but I didn't think that I had to type it...thanks agian

    One Other Question

    :thankyou: When I do a front cover I use the dimensions in the tutorial I downloaded which are 419X512, but when I see the creation on the ecover it does not cover the entire box like I thought it would, atleast not per the dimensions...are the dimensions for the box larger than those in the tutorial..thanks for the reply

    ...thanks Marc, that's what the problem was, working now on how to get rid of the jagged edges, hope someone on the forum might have some answers
    p.s. No matter what any of these whinning individuals say about your software, it has a great deal of potential once all the kinks have been worked out, even as-is it's a very good piece of software and can only get better than great.
