You already know by now that My Memories Suite is packed with multitude of features. But did you know that you can use My Memories Suites for projects not necessarily for your scrapbook? Reading through My Memories Suite’s Blog, I learned that My Memories Suite is truly an all-around software that you can use to make practically anything about crafts, hobbies, school projects, etc. as long you use your creativity and imagination.
If you’re a blogger, you probably are familiar with blog header and if you’re not, it doesn’t really matter ’cause if you continue to read on you will learn new things that you can do with My Memories Suite. Technically speaking, for the benefit of those unfamiliar, a blog is a website that aims to provide information and encourages open discussion about the topics or articles it publishes. Most blogs started out as personal sites or a collaboration of a small group of people until recently they became popular and have now grown to include MAB or “multi-author” blogs. So every blog has to have a Blog Header or in layman’s term, a Title Header. It could be a simple text or a graphical image or a combination of both.
For this lesson, we’ll be making a graphic image blog header using My Memories Suite as our main editor or program. Let’s start! Open MMS and choose any method you prefer from New Album options.
For this project I chose to use one from the pre-made designer templates.
Since this is a blog header, obviously we need to highlight the name of the blog. In this case, WordArt works best because we need a bolder or bigger text. To keep the blog’s dainty character, I used a font with rounded edges.
Arrange all texts and objects. You can re-arrange, revise and move everything until you are happy with how the whole page looks.
As a last minute decision, I also wanted to change the background paper into something lighter. You can do this at the beginning so that you’ll be able to place objects or texts that complements the background. But as I’ve said, editing with My Memories Suite does not require a lot of fuzz.
Locate the exported file and open the image. You can use Preview in Mac or MSPaint if you’re using windows. Here, you need to trim and crop your image to fit the required size of the blog if you still have not done it in MMS.
Here’s what I did in blogger:
Open the Dashboard, find Header in Layout and then click Edit.
Add image or replace existing image. Upload the new Header and configure settings.
