RapidStudio supports TLC

TLC - The Love of Christ Children's Home... because every baby deserves a family

When Romy Antrobus contacted us with a request to discount our photo calendars which they want to sell to raise funds for TLC, we didn't think twice to donate the calendars. We consider it a privilege to help in this little way.

Thea Jarvis and her family are truly heavenly creatures walking and working amongst us. I was touched very deeply when reading Thea and Pippa's blogs. Captured in every single word are traces of a love and sincerity which very few people in this world possess.

My own words do not come close enough to describing the work these lovely people do with our children, so I've borrowed their own words in order to get the message across.

"Each person in our family was meant to be there, and each one is loved. Whether born or adopted into the family, each person is beautifully unique and treasured." ...read more

The Jarvis family cares for babies affected by HIV, abandoned or neglected.  "In a country ravaged by HIV-AIDS it is sadly not only those who are tragically infected who have their lives disrupted, but also those of their families, often innocent babies." ...read more

Some children are legally adopted by the Jarvis family.  "In the past there have been those little ones for whom we have not been able to find a family. When a baby arrives at TLC we are committed to them, from the time they are infants and as they grow up."  ...read more

They change lives.  "Much of the work at TLC is done by young people from around the world. Many of these youths have never been away from home for an extended period of time. During the time that they provide us with an invaluable service in time and effort, TLC provides a safe environment in which they can stretch their wings and experience a little of the real world." ...read more


They do not survive on charity alone.  "At TLC there are a lot of hungry little mouths to feed. Out of this need, the Sustainable Farming Project was born, aiming to put some food on the table and eventually generate some income." ...read more


There is so much to be said about this group of people investing their time, energy and unconditional love into these tiny souls.  I just couldn't put it all in one blog entry.  Visit their website, sign up for the newsletter and find out how you can support them - either by volunteering or committing yourself to one of their projects or simply by making a donation.

To purchase a calendar in support of TLC, please contact Romy Antrobus at romy.antrobus@gmail.com.  ALL proceeds from these sales are donated to The Love of Christ Children's Home.

Tip 9 : Aligning and Spacing in Rapidstudio

We often want to create a collage of photo's as a page design. Most of the time we are not totally confident in creating this type of layout in Rapidstudio, as you have to be accurate in your aligning and spacing of pictures. In this tutorial I will be explaining how to create a collage of pictures on a page, as it covers most of the alignment and spacing topics. I hope this tutorial will help you realise your design intent more accurately and efficiently. You will probably start with a page layout something similar to this We are going to start with top row of pictures. The following explanation only refers to the top row, we will be dealing with the rest of the images a bit later. First of all we need to move the pictures next to each other horizontally to see if they will fit in the "Safe Area" of the page. In this example the pictures are too wide and overlap the safe area horizontally. Please note that you will have to leave a decent amount of space between th

Tiny photobook. Great impression.

Bigger is better We’ve all heard the saying “bigger is better” and even in the world of photobooks that’s true.  But when we talk about big  at RapidStudio  in the photobook business, we’re talking about the heart - not the product.  Creating, printing and owning photobooks are all about the memories, it’s all about treasuring your most precious moments and the people close to your heart. Small is beautiful We don’t talk enough about our Mini Books (or brag books as we like to refer to them).  As in life, we tend to overlook the simplest and smallest treasures and we forget that these small things have their own special kind of awesome.  The Mini Book is no exception. Our most popular photobook must be the A4 Landscape Hardcover.  It’s just the right size to store on a shelf, to leave on your coffee table or to flip through.  It’s not bulky, it doesn’t take up a lot of space but it’s not too small either.  It’s near perfect.  I say near perfect because it lac
