Following from my initial comprehensive review of Artisan State, I decided to see whether my initial experience differed to the current day Artisan State. Six months can be a long time for a company; workflow and processes may have evolved and their supply chain may have changed significantly. Due to the popularity of my first […]

    WilFel - to point 1. Design
    “missing zoom option”
    i think i have found what you were looking for….(i hope)
    if you do want to “zoom” into a photo, double click on it, a photo editor opens with a frame which you can position on whatever area you want to have shown. in the down right corner is a small square, with that you can pull the window smaller = “zoom in” and reposition if necessary to the area you want shown.

    self designed pages
    you can start with whatever template and add frames from above menu. then by clicking on the frame you can pull the 8 marked squares the pic in any size and by grabbing the pic with the hand symbol into any position you want.

    what i miss and haven’t figure yet is a kind of helping grid or coordinates. the photos do align to each other magnetically most of the time, but it seems not always and precisely if you want to work with a certain defined space between.ReplyCancel

    Isabel C. - Thank you Very, VERY Much for your reviews! I have been looking, reading and thoroughly investigating how to do a album for my wedding. I was in love with the concept of “flush mount”, but my wallet was ferociously opposed. My photographer was nice enough to offer a discounted price of $800.00, but it was very painful to rip off that amount from my fingers. I looked, and looked but the ones that I could afford were only available to professionals. I was about to order a photobook that would have serve as a reminder of my lack of resources, until I found Artisan State. I was not sure because their pricing looked “too good to be true”. And then along came you… I have read your 2 reviews from start to finish, and I am very pleased to see the detail you use to describe everything in the process of ordering and designing the albums. I will prance to the website and order my flush mount album a year after my wedding, and I will have the must satisfied feeling of accomplishment. I have bought caviar, with a canned tuna budget. :)

    Thank you.ReplyCancel
