What is Album Design
Album DS is an album design software for Photoshop and works like a toolbar for Photoshop CS or higher. Photoshop's working area is used for designing the albums instead of any own area, meaning unlimited creativity because you have direct access to all Photoshop tools.
If you need a template it will open in Photoshop at the album size by just double clicking the template thumbnail, you don't need to search for a predefined size template as any template will fit any size; and best of all: you may easily modify the document in Photoshop because it is a true PSD file.
Album DS automates the designing process by keeping track of used pictures, placing automatically the images, applying effects, allowing direct and easy access to templates, backgrounds, masks, cliparts, styles, frames, etc.
Each album will be saved in his own folder, you may change from one album to another by just selecting the folder and all sheets, pictures and controls of folders will be retrieved with the album. This even allows for easily creating a backup of your work, just backup the folder and all your files will be included.
You may even automate the creation of the whole album, just select the templates and pictures and Album DS will do the rest.
We have included a filtering process for the templates, you may search by number of pictures, horizontally placed pictures and vertically placed pictures; also a mouse over preview is included for all elements, fully resizable and dockable to the main Album DS window.
I would suggest you just to download the free demo and try it, it will not mark your pictures or sheets and a bunch of templates, backgrounds, masks, etc are included. During 30 days you may enjoy from this tool and design your first fast and creative albums.
With Album DS, you will create gorgeous digital photo albums fast and easy from within Adobe Photoshop™ a program you already use and love.
Album DS provides more than 600 templates, automatically resizable to any album size; just double click at the template and it will be opened in Photoshop ready to be used. Use square templates for vertical albums or vice versa with no squishing or skewing of your photos. Templates are also flipable along vertical and horizontal axis and may easily be and combined because they are true PSD files that open in Photoshop™.
Album DS is the perfect design solution for magazine, coffee table, flush mount and even matted albums and is compatible with ANY album from ANY manufacturer. Album DS is so much more than an album design tool. It can easily be used for Signature Studio Prints, Collages, Stationary, Sports Trader Cards, Custom Studio Proof Prints and any other product where you wish to combine multiple images, masks, borders and frames.
Best of all there is no steep learning curve as Album DS is very intuitive and works from within Photoshop™ a tool you likely already use every day. Whether you are a Photoshop expert or brand new to Photoshop™ you will find that Album DS will help you create amazing works or your art. Album DS has many built in image and creative enhancements but of course your investment in other products like plug-ins and actions will still be available to you and there is no need to go back and forth between Photoshop™ and a limited stand alone application. You have access to all of your Photoshop™ filters, brushes, fonts, shapes, etc. and you may modify existing or add your own templates easily, create your own masks, frames and even add your pictures or drawings to be used as backgrounds or clipart.
You may rotate, resize and reposition your pictures while designing and change as you wish with no fear of image degradation due to interpolation. Album DS™ maintains a link with your images so final quality will not be compromised. You can even automatically change the aspect ratio of your designs after the fact for those times when you sell a main album of one aspect ration and want to repurpose for another.
Much more than just templates, Album DS is complete wedding album software for the innovative photographer.
More than 199 masks (sloppy border and edge effects) are provided to be easily added to your layers with only one double click, 560 frames fully configurable and editable, 115 backgrounds, plenty of clipart and of course you may add your own to Album DS.
