How do I use decorations?

Modified on Mon, 1 Apr, 2019 at 4:03 PM

A video tutorial demonstrating how to use decorations is available here.

Memento Pro includes a collection of decorations. New additions to the collection are automatically downloaded to your installation when they are released.  
To access the Memento Pro decoration collection, click on the dropdown in top left corner of the photo collection pane.

Select Style Decorations and choose a category.

The decorations in the selected category will appear in the photo collection pane.

Drag and drop your selection graphic onto your canvas, and resize/reorder it on your canvas it as required.

Many of the Memento Pro stock decorations are style-sensitive -  this means they will conform with your selected Style preset to coordinate with your layout.  Change the applied Style on your page or entire book, and your decoration will behave according to the preset, changing color and other image attributes.

The collection currently includes the following group of decorations:

Lines, labels, appliqués and flourishes can simply be added to your canvas as decorative embellishments. If you want to customize their color, turn off their Style-sensitivity under the Palette option - this will allow you to recolor the decoration.

Overlays and half-tones work well with blending modes applied to them. Drag the decoration to your canvas, position it, then access the General properties options.

Adjust the transparency and canvas blend options as required to achieve a more organic effect.

Other image effects are available. Try using a gradient, for instance, to fade-out a decoration.
