RapidStudio recognises its outstanding staff

Just a few days ago, RapidStudio held its staff awards ceremony. Perhaps we’re a bit partial, but it seems that the awards ceremony is the icing on the cake. As team members here at RapidStudio, we get to experience a dynamic, fun work environment. We enjoy our work so much, and RapidStudio’s management takes the time to show that they appreciate all of our hard work. Plus, we get to show appreciation for each other.

Ahead of the awards, all of the staff rated each other. Team leaders and management also rate everyone on the team. Then, based on the “scores” from the votes, the cream of the crop is recognized with a special award

The team that placed ahead was “RapidStudio Professional”. This elite team is in charge of hand making all of the Ultimate albums, as well as our other products that are specially designed for professional photographers. 

Award recipients were given certificates. These weren't just your run-of-the-mill certificates, either. They were ornate and personalized with hand written notes from our team leaders, and they were placed in elegant wax sealed envelopes. 

My note, and the wax sealed envelope it was in.
All the notes and envelopes were personalised.


Coming to work each and every day is a treat when you love what you do. We have a unique environment here at RapidStudio, where we have fun and connect with each other every day. Thank you, RapidStudio, and thank you to each person who makes it a pleasure to work here! 

All the certificates and envelopes ready to get handed out.

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:
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…
