You may need:
CROP AREA PLACEMENT

 

In this document you will find a guide to learn the correct placement method of your photos close to the page margin.

 

TEAM VIEWER

 

Download the free version selecting the link for your operating system. This way our expert technicians will be able to do a remote assistance by connecting with your computer.

 

SPEED TEST

Every time you find that your Internet surfing is slowing down, either while loading a page or uploading a file, we suggest you check if the problem is due to your broadband connection.
In most cases slowness issues are linked to the way your communication service provider manages call traffic (i.e. Telecom, Vodafone, Tiscali, etc.) rather than to the traffic on our servers. You may check this by doing a simple speed test at the following link: www.speedtest.net.

The data that will appear will determine the efficiency of your speed based on PING (the amount of milliseconds it takes a packet of information to reach another server ), on DOWNLOAD SPEED( amount of MegaBit received per second) and on UPLOAD SPEED (amount of MegaBit transferred per second). The third data is the most important when uploading an order via Internet.

Generally speaking, a good 7 MegaBit ADSL connection should present on average the following data:
PING ( around 80 ms) – DOWNLOAD (around 6 Mbps) – PLOAD (around 1 Mbps)
If the data corresponding to your broadband are consistently different from the above please contact your provider to understand if it is possible to receive an improved service.

If YOU create the layout with AE Studio, you need:
AE STUDIO

 

AE Studio plug-in for Photoshop® is a useful and innovative tool to create custom page layouts, stylish and modern. AE Studio is a product designed for the professional photographer who wants to use Photoshop and, at the same time, optimize his own workflow.
