Here are a few specifics in regards to each type of printed creation.

^ Greeting cards: After the page is printed, you need to fold the page in half and then fold it again. Some types of photo paper can crack when folded, so be careful. It helps to score the card with a paper clip or thin-tipped burnishing tool before folding.

^ Calendars: After you print the pages of your calendar, you can either bind them yourself or take them to your local copy shop for binding.

Ask for a clear acetate cover and vinyl backing to give further polish to your custom calendar. After you create and preview your calendar, you have the option to have it printed via an online service for $19.95. Simply click the Order Online button in Step 5 of the Creations Wizard. See more about ordering online in Chapter 15.

i Albums: As with calendars, after you print your album, you can take it to a copy shop to have it bound with a front and back cover. Or you can simply place the pages in your leather-bound photo album or scrapbook.

If you choose to print creations that do not have sufficient resolution, Album presents you with a warning dialog box, shown in Figure 14-9. At this point, you have a couple options:

i Use another image, with higher resolution, for the creation.

i Try to print the image anyway, using the individual print method described earlier in this chapter, at a smaller size. You won't get the image in the cool creation form, but at least you may be able to get some kind of print.

i Send the creation to recipients to view on-screen. Make an eCard instead of a greeting card, or send friends and family that calendar as a PDF to view on-screen. What the heck — you'll save a few trees, too.
