Do you spend a lot of time cropping and editing photos in Memory Manager, and then find that you don't even use them in your Storybooks? Save time by using the tools on the Photos and Enhance ribbons of Storybook Creator Plus, and you can adequately edit almost all of the images that you actually use in your books!
Now that you can quickly add individual images from Memory Manager to the Storybook project that you are working on (use the 'Share' function in MM 3.0), it's even easier to just start with a few photos and go from there. I usually bring 10 - 20 of my five star images over from MM to my SBC+ project - just enough for a two page spread. I rarely edit in MM, unless I need to use the clone tool or other tools that are not available in SBC+. This way, I don't waste time 'fixing' images that I may or may not use.
The top page shows some of the ways that you can get photos that you might not have known about, but the second page is where the fun really starts! I almost never crop images any more - I use the Zoom tool on the Photos ribbon instead. Play around with it and find out for yourself how versatile it is. Also, be sure to experiment with "Photos in Frame" so you can see the differences between this tool and the Rotate tool on the Layout ribbon.
Remember, push all the buttons and click on all the drop down arrows that you see! That's how you'll learn what you can and can't do. Have fun with it!!
