If you have downloaded a freebie and find yourself wondering what to do next, you should first go back and re-read the download instruction or description I provided. My freebies come in a range of formats and the following info should help you overcome any difficulties you are experiencing:
Serif’s .pack file format
These files are in fact Digikits. You should download and unzip (if necessary) and save the .pack files to your own ‘My Digikits’ folder, or wherever your software is programmed to look for its kits. Once the files are in place, you can access them from within your software by going to ‘Add items from Digikits’
Serif’s .Sbp scrapbook file format
Files with the extension .Sbp are regular scrapbook pages created in Digital Scrapbook Artist (DSA). They are compatible with both DSA and the later Craft Artist (CA). Scrapbook files should be downloaded, unzipped and placed in the same location as the scrapbook pages you make for yourself. To open a .Sbp file you should use the File>Open command from within your software, and navigate to the place you saved the file.
- Craft Artist users please note – your software will be looking for Craft Artist Project Files by default. Here follows a short video showing how to open DSA.Sbp files in Craft Artist
Some of my freebies are ‘Effects’ that need to be added to your own software’s ‘Effects’ categories before you can use them. To avoid you having to poke around within Serif’s Program/Effects files, I provide the effects by applying them to simple shapes placed onto a scrapbook page or Digikit Layout… to get at these ‘Effects’ you must first open the pages or layouts I provided and then follow the instructions included for your use.
