Oh well, more experimentation > on the way! 1) Fire up the Layout feature. 2) Set your paper dimensions and resolution in the Layout window. 3) Left click on the icon with 4 squares (create grid) along the bottom of the Layout window. 4) Enter panel width and height, margins, rows, and columns in the create grid window. 5) Use the preview liberally in the create grid window and click "OK" when satisfied. 6) RIGHT click on any panel in the Layout window on the graphic representing the page. An outline will appear arounf the panel that has been selected and a "Panel Properties" window will pop. 7) Make sure "Color/Image" is selected in the "Background" field. It is the default so you shouldn't have to change it. 8) LEFT click on the "Color/Image" square. All of the images you currently have open in PW will now appear for selection. Choose the image you want to fill the selected panel. 9) When the image is selected, notice the crop box in the selected image in Picture Window. You can adjust the crop box on this image and see the impact in the Layout window. This is really cool. 10)Once you're satisfied, simply right click on another panel in the Layout window, and select the image for that panel. 11) If you have a panel that has no image, you may want that panel to be transparent. Therefore, select the "Transparent" option in the "Background" field for this panel. 12) If you like the layout, make sure you save the layout by clicking on the folder with the arrow pointing inward in the Layout window. This will save the layout without the images. 13) Click "OK" and layout will make a new image out of your layout. "OK" makes the layout image and exists the Layout feature. "Apply" makes the layout but keeps you in the layout feature. Hope this helps. === Explore potential income opportunities with Greer and Associates at http://www.ibocity.com/greeraa.
