Happy Birthday to YOU!!!

Happy Birthday RapidStudio


Six years ago, RapidStudio started down the path to where we find ourselves today. Now, we offer a robust suite of simple, interactive products. Our website is smooth, our branding has been successful. Those who have been with us from the start, however, know that this journey has not been effortless! We’ve gone to the drawing board time and time again, tweaking some things and completely tossing others. None of the magnificent changes that have taken place over the last six years would be possible without you.

Our customers have supported us not only by returning to our website or referring other people to RapidStudio’s services, but they have provided feedback that has been integral to the direction our company has gone. Our partners have worked diligently with us to offer the products our customers crave. Each of our partners has delivered world-class framework, and this framework has been a key to the long-standing success of RapidStudio. The staff at RapidStudio has feverishly collaborated amongst themselves and taken notes from customers to develop the amazing line of products that we offer today. The RapidStudio management has consistently made our vision clear and devised ways to make our ideas truly work.


When we go back to our humble beginnings, we remember how the first few days started out. Our order screen was literally empty for a time that seemed like an eternity. After a day or two, the orders started to trickle in. Now, when we come into work, our screen is full of orders and we spend the day trying to achieve an empty screen. It rarely happens, though, because new orders come to take up any empty spaces. As RapidStudio celebrates its sixth year, we also celebrate YOU - our supporters, believers, and inspiration. Thank you for being a huge part of our journey!

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 the safe …

Paint By Shadow Canvases:

Paint By Shadow Canvases:
RapidStudio and CraftRoutes got back in touch with their inner artist in Pretoria last week.
CraftRoutes, a specialist arts and crafts shop in Pretoria, invited Paint-by-Shadow to be the flagship product at their annual exhibition in the Kolonnade Shopping Mall, Montana Park.


Our largest size (80 x 120 cm) canvas was placed on the stand and throughout the 6 days of exhibiting, the canvas was painted by myself (product developer), Sue Peddle (owner of CraftRoutes) and all the sales staff from the store.


The King Protea image was developed for Sue and her shop, which reflected the mood of Heritage Day.  This image also show cases the Proudly South African product Paint-by-Shadow truly is.




Have you always wanted to be an artist but thought it was too difficult?
We have developed an innovative new product called “Paint-by-Shadow. Paint-by-Shadow is a great starter product that takes any of the initial apprehension and unknowns out of the painting process.



When you…
