While you may choose to use an album company's Digital Mat Templates - you don't
have to use them in conjunction with any specific lab. Use any Digital Mat
Templates of your choosing and with Presentation, you can send the order to any
lab, (providing you purchase the Universal Outputs) and binder of your choosing.
You may also choose to create albums with
traditional "insert" type albums. Below you will find the templates for General,
Renaissance, Tap, Florentina, Leather Album Design, and the "Reversible" albums
from the bound album companies.
About the V Pages...
Download the V Pages and take a look at them. They are digital composite
templates for album pages. They are "Generic". They will create prints for any
albums that use individual size prints. BUT- the prints are actually printed on
8x10 and 10x10 paper. You make a few quick cuts and you have individual prints.
The templates are laid out to give the "look" of album pages, but they don't
look as fancy.
Downloading templates: When you unzip the self extracting files they will be placed in the C:/Performer
Templates folder you created. You may choose to place them in another location
if you wish. Download the templates to the folder. When you open the Album
Designer, link to the template folders you choose to use.

to the bound album companies.
