As I have explained in the past, these images are huge and can be used for posters, etc, really high quality. Here is how I get, process and use these images. As most of you know, I am loving making stickers to use on cards and things, so my processes are geared to that.
1. I download the parts of the bundle to my computer. They come in separate zip files, then I open that zip file, and use the extract routine built into Windows, but I change the "extract to file" to a file I created called "September Bundle" on an external 200 gig SD card and when extracted to that file, I delete the zip file. Remember, with their lifetime download service, you can always get the original package downloaded again any time you want/need.
2. I find that it is easier for me to reduce the size of the images by 50% --does not cause as many crash issues when I use in Silhouette Studio if I do this, could be limitations of my laptop and not the software, but I find the reduced sizes work best for me. I have a "free" downloaded program called IRFANVIEW that works very well for me, you may have other software that easily does this. I create a file under each section of my bundle called 50% and that is where I store the reduced size files.
IRFANVIEW download is here. for Windows 64 bit version, other versions are available Here is a video of how I use the batch processor to easily and quickly accomplish this task.
3. Using images in Silhouette Studio for print and cut/stickers
Now that I have the images reduced by 50%, I am ready to "play" with them. Here is a video that shows how I bring them into the Silhouette Studio software using the "library" function and then how I can trace the image, remove the unwanted white background (even though it won't print), it impedes the ability to squeeze a lot of images on a label sheet for stickers. And lastly, I show how to get more bang for buck when using the image modification tool to get several different looks for each image.
Well that's it for this posting, I might do another follow on one where I do the print and cut on my full label sticker sheets, then maybe some cards, etc that I make with the stickers. There are so many great things in this September Bundle, something for everyone. Wish I had a little one to make these cute dress up characters
Remember, all this and a whole lot more in the September Bundle here.
