Default Question about stitching

Hi,
I have purchased CA2 Professional.
I am just wondering about this feature called
"stitching" cause you can see it in the Serif
page of the CraftArtist2 Pro product page.

Does this product really have a stitching feature?
because the stitching in the digi brush are just
line stitching designs that you can paint on top but
not really can stitch two objects together literally?

Please help,
thanks.

Yes, AFAIK, stitching in CA2 is an artistic tool that adds or paints stitching on top of material, or anything else. If you want to stitch two pictures together, as in adding two halves of a landscape, you may wish to consider scan, stitch and share http://forums.serif.com/showthread.php?t=59251

Hi Meg,

Thanks for your prompt reply. This confirms.
I have one last question. Sorry cause I would like to know as much about this software. So my question is that,
why is it the the frames in digikits are called "intelligent" frames? Do these frames have more features and usage than just being frames? And also, the "customizable" layouts? Meaning those other layouts are
static? and cannot be changed?

Please help,
Thanks a lot...

The frames in digikits are excellent because the photographs "snap" into them and then you can zoom in or out and pan the picture around inside the frame, so it fits the way you want.

I tend not to use the layouts because I prefer my own way of setting things out, however, I may use them as a creative spark. You can use a layout or not as you choose. once you have chosen one, you can make any additions or subtractions to it that you want. Everything in the layout can be changed. For instance, you could remove a frame or swap it for a different one, or resize it. You can switch things around, add or remove text or replace it with your own.

Default Re: Question about stitching

Marketing terms can be confusing and sometimes misleading. When you drop an image on top of a frame, the image will automatically 'snap' to the correct size for the defined inside of the frame. The user can then manually resize and crop after that.

Layouts are completely customizable. Add a page layout to work area. You can then add more. Delete objects. Rotate, recolor, etc. to any object.
