Introducing DigiTUBE

This year DigiLabs Pro hosted it’s first  webinar and virtual tradeshow featuring our new DigiLabs Pro software.  In both cases, the use of video was a vital part of our presentations allowing us to share the incredible features of our software.  The sales & support teams found that sharing the past recordings from these events with  new DigiLabs Pro visitors, as well as current DigiLabs Pro customers, has been quite helpful.

That got us to thinking…  We are proud to introduce DigiTUBEDigiTUBE is our own video tutorial channel where new, current and potential clients can view all of our videos and tutorials.  We have some great videos up now on ordering, uploading and other cool things… Check it out for yourself!

We’ve had a lot of fun creating and coming up with NEW ideas for these tutorials and now we’d love to hear from you!  What type of tutorials would you like to see?  Are the tutorials helpful?  Your feedback is OH SO important to us so share away!  Post your ideas and/or comments in the comments section below.

Change Book Tool

We’re going Tutorial crazy over here at DigiLabs (well I am at least).  Today we wanted to share with you a really incredible tool available in the DigiLabs Pro Software. The change book tool is a tool designated to allow you to switch from 1 style or size of book or album to another using your same design.  In less than 10 seconds ALACAZAM: you can convert your 12×12 wedding album to a 10×10 Ashbury parent album.

Who needs a graphic designer when you have DigiLabs Pro?  No, seriously…you don’t need one. You should try this tool out today and check out this fun tutorial we made to show you how this works:

Conflict Resolution: Knowing Your Image Resolution

Many of the questions that we see in support are related to image resolution and how this translates to the printed product.   There are a number of things related to resolution that are camera dependent (Megapixels, CCD size, RAW or jpeg).  All of these different variables and numbers  can get confusing.  For real world printing applications, most of these don’t apply.  It is actually pretty simple and easy to understand.

Resolution is best understood by looking at an image.  This image will be a certain number of pixels wide by a certain number of pixels high.  Let’s say that our image is 600×400.  This number by itself doesn’t mean much in relation to printing, until we combine this number with a printed size.  The ideal size (for DigiLabs and most printing applications) is 300dpi (Dots per Inch).  If we take our image at 600×400 and want to have it be 300dpi it means that the maximum size we can print that at is 2inches by 1 1/3rd inches.  How we get to this number is dividing our resolution numbers by our DPI (600/300=2 |400/300=1.333).  I know this is a lot of numbers and if you’re math-a-phobic, just know that calculators are your friends and that this is just a matter of simple division.

That really covers the basics of image resolution…but wait…there’s more… If you are math-a-phobic or simply don’t want to pull out the calculator, our software makes this even easier.  Bring an image into the DigiLabs Pro – My Photo Creations software and it will warn you when you get below a certain threshold.  You can also see the DPI by looking in the bottom bar when that image is selected.  Just make sure it is in the 300DPI range (a little higher or lower is okay: 250-350DPI).  In the end, you will have a fantastic product and your clients will think you are a math whiz.  Okay, maybe not the last part, but they will think you are photography genius (let’s face it, you are)!
