|Memento Pro offers several options for completing your project under the Finalize tab.|
You can render your project to several printable file types, upload it to a Memento print partner, or upload it to a MementoPix Cloud for online viewing.
|Memento Pro must be online to complete this process since it must access your account subscription.|
Before rendering, you must create an account or sign into your existing account.
If this is your first time registering, you will need to sign up for the monthly subscription. Your subscription can be cancelled at any time.
(Depending on your geographical location, sales taxes may apply during the final checkout step.)
Once your subscription is running, you can proceed to Finalize your project. Subscriptions enable unlimited rendering while active.
|Option 1: JPG/PDF Export|
To create flattened files saved to your computer, choose JPG/PDF Export.
Both jpg and pdf files offer the choice of render regions (crop to edge, crop to bleed, crop to bleed with cropmarks), splitting or maintaining spreads, and resolution (dpi).
PDF files further allow you to choose to flatten the file, keep it with layers, and options for vector text.
Rendered files will be found in Documents\Memento\Projects.
After rendering, you can send your files to your printing service of choice. Most printing services accept multi-page pdf files directly or jpg files dropped into a file uploader service.
More details can be found here in the JPG/PDF export article.
|Option 2: Upload to Print Partner|
Memento Pro printing partners offer the ability to upload completed projects directly to their facilities.
Choose a manufacturer under the Settings tab, and select one of their products. After building and reviewing your album, choose Upload to Print Partner to start the render then upload directly to the manufacturer.

|Option 3: PSD Export|
Use the PSD export to create layered files suitable for editing in Photoshop.
We suggest this option only in the following circumstances:
PSD offers choices for render regions (crop to edge, crop to bleed, crop to bleed with cropmarks), splitting or maintaining spreads a single file, and resolution (dpi).
Files are rendered to your Documents folder, in Memento\Projects\Final PSD\
When opened in Photoshop, the resulting psd files can be edited on a per-layer basis.
