Looking for a Fun Mother’s Day Outing? Explore a Paint by Shadow Event!


Here at RapidStudio, we know how special those moms are. Whether you’re celebrating for a family member, spouse, or friend, finding a fun Mother’s Day outing can sometimes be a challenge. We’ve looked around, too, and then we realized the perfect event was right under our noses!



RapidStudio hosts several Paint by Shadow events throughout the year, and we’re actually presenting another one on May 11, 2015. This event is conveniently close to Mother’s Day, and it offers a fun, relaxing atmosphere and an event that virtually anyone can enjoy.



First, we should probably explain exactly what a Paint by Shadow event is. You’ve probably heard of “paint by number” activities, and Paint by Shadow is somewhat similar. Designed to facilitate creativity in a more mature audience, instead of applying color or paint that coordinates with a number, you have a shadow to use as a guideline. The shadow is placed on a professional quality canvas and is designed to be painted over. After you’ve painted the canvas, it looks like an all-original, freehand masterpiece. Plus, you’ll both get to take your paintings home to keep forever.



As you can imagine, this is a fun event for amateur artists and even seasoned professionals. You don’t need any special skills to come join an event, just a willingness to try something new and have fun! The mom in your life is welcome to come give Paint by Shadow a try - we think you’ll both have a great time!



Our May 11, 2015, Paint by Shadow is filling up nicely, but we still have room! Our Paint by Shadow event is a fun, reasonably priced event that you’ll both remember for the times to come!!

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

Digitise Your Old Family Photos and Create a Beautiful Coffee Table Photobook

Ever heard people say that if their house was on fire and they could save only one possession, they would grab their photo albums? A family’s photo albums hold their combined memories of all their best times. As such, they should be looked after. Old fashioned albums lose their stickiness and colour over time. The photos themselves start to dull and fade. With all the handling of people browsing them, they start to fall apart and look shabby. This is why coffee table photobooks are the answer. Showing your family memories in a professionally bound photobook on your coffee table or bookshelf will take the pics from drab to fab. What’s great is that you can create separate volumes for each chapter of your lives: ‘Mauritius Holiday 2017’ or ‘The Kids as Babies’, etc. Each book can have its own look and feel to go with the theme or event it contains. It Is So Easy Today’s software and photobook websites are designed to be user-friendly for people regardless of their le
