Earth Day - Supporting Our Future

This year’s Earth Day is all about Environmental and Climate Literacy. As custodians of this amazing planet we all need to learn how our actions can help or hinder the environment. Here’s a few of the things we do to reduce our footprint…You can too!

Recycle

RapidStudio sorts waste before collection. We learned it improves recycling so made a special sorting area in 2014. We can all learn and improve to help the environment.

Rainwater

Using rainwater tanks not only saves money, it saves the environment too! We collect water from a quarter of our roof and will collect even more next year. Small steps make a big impact. We can’t wait to see how much we’ve saved!

Energy

RapidStudio generates 1/3 of our power through renewable energy. We’ve made enough to power 10 small homes for 4 years! That’s the same as running the ICE-3 high speed train for 3200km. Impressive! You can also save money and power by switching to low energy lighting. We made the switch in Jan 2015 and went an extra step to remove lighting in unused areas. We’re so glad we did.

Transport

In February we improved our fleet of company vehicles by moving to 900cc Kia Picantos. Improved fuel economy not only saves us money at the pump, it reduces air and noise pollution. A fleet of electric cars are the next step!

10 Unique Photobook Ideas

Stuck for photobook inspiration? Try one of these creative, themed books.

A photobook is the perfect way to print and display your memories, so you and your family can look back on them (without having to huddle around a computer). They also make for special gifts! But, you don’t just want to slap all your pics together in one book. Instead, make themed photobooks you can collect over time.

We’ve compiled a list of unique photobook ideas that will inspire your next photobook project – whether you’re creating a wedding album, holiday album, or summer album!

Seasonal Books Create a photobook after each season with all the pics from the last three months. Summer, autumn, winter and spring books will give them a clear theme – and help ensure a colour pallet throughout the pics.


The Fur Family Photobooks aren’t just for people! Create a book that’s all about your pets, or make a book for a friend that features their furry buddy.

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 …

Creative Ideas for a Post-Holiday Photobook

Here’s how to turn your holiday photos into a creative, must-keep photobook.

Returning home after a holiday can leave you with the post-travel blues. As you wash your bikini, shake the sand out of your sneakers, and try to revive the house plants you haven’t watered for two weeks, you begin to long for the lazy days of a vacation.

But, just because you’re home, doesn’t mean the holiday fun is over. Gather your memories up and create a photobook of your trip. Putting it together is a fun way to keep the holiday feeling alive, plus you can look back on it, to get yourself ready for next December (or April. We’re coming for you, public holidays).

Create a #Hashtag If you went on holiday with a few friends or family members, make sure that everyone uploads their pics to Instagram using a unique hashtag you create, like #SmithFamilyHoliday2017. Check it doesn’t exist already! That way, when you create the photobook, you can search for the hashtag, and find every photo that was taken. An ea…
