Troubleshooting

Do I have to have Lightroom to use these templates?
To create the Lightroom collages using the Lightroom print presets, you will have to have Lightroom. However, I do sell traditional calendar templates and date grids.

I’m unable to drag and drop my images from the photo bin onto the template.
Make sure you don’t have any special drivers installed that is incompatible with Lightroom. Some Wacom drivers may cause interference. Try disabling the drivers and try again.

My template is showing up on the screen in the wrong dimensions.
First, see if your version of Lightroom has a “CUSTOM FILE DIMENSIONS” check box. This would be in the PRINT MODULE under the PRINT JOB tab. Check the box and enter your page size. If your version of LR does not have that option, check to see if you can add a custom print size to your print options. The video tutorial demonstrates this. If you are unable to add the custom size to your defaults, you may need to install the drivers for a printer that supports the 12×12 size. The Epson drivers for the 1400 wide format printer has been known to add the 12×12 ability.

How do I crop a photo?
You have to crop your photo in the DEVELOP module first, before moving over to the print module to drag and drop into the template. So, go through your pix first, and be sure you’ve prepped them. Then, pop into the PRINT module to create your collage.

How do I change the placement of my photo in the box?
Hold in the OPT or ALT key to adjust the placement of your photo within the template box.

How can I save the collage with a transparent background?
Instead of choosing SAVE AS JPG as the “print method,” choose to print the file instead. Then select ADOBE PDF as the printer. On a Mac, you can click PDF>Save As PDF on the bottom left of the print dialogue. This will save a PDF to your computer that you can then open in Photoshop and edit directly. This method allows you to apply a drop shadow to your collage directly, without needing the drop shadow overlay.

Action: Round It Up {Add-On}

Now you can scrap your Round Up Collages onto a Letter-Size page instead of 12×12! Create your collages with the original Round It Up actions. Then, run this add-on to scrap them. Choose from horiztonal or vertical options. Scrap both the collage page and the journaling page.

NOTE: This is an add-on to the Round It Up Collab and requires a premade collage.
