HP Custom Quilt Label Kit - Adding Borders

Introduction
HP Custom Quilt Label Kit comes with many professional looking borders. Use borders to frame your design or an area of your design with color, a pattern, or an image.
Many borders come with HP Custom Quilt Label Kit, or you can use your own. Your own borders can be images or patterns of any shape or size.
Using borders
You can add borders to frame your entire design or a smaller area of the design. Borders are grouped into categories called themes so you can easily find the right border for your design. If you have already added other items using a particular theme, that same theme contains coordinating borders for your design.
In addition to the borders that are included with the software, you can also view your own borders and add them to your design. For example, you can use a photo of your quilt as a border for your design. Your own borders can be images or patterns of any shape or size, and do not need a hole in the center. The software displays the appropriate border shape on the borders tab (depending on the border shape you selected on the main screen) and will maintain that border shape when you add the border to your design.
You can add borders to placeholders within your design and to the outer edge of your whole design. When you add a border, the software tries to resize it automatically while maintaining its aspect ratio. If the aspect ratio cannot be maintained, parts of the border may appear to be cropped.
You can adjust the placement of a border by making sure it is selected and then moving it by clicking and dragging the border or by using the arrow keys on the keyboard. You can also resize the border by making sure it is selected and then clicking and dragging a square until the item reaches the desired size (Tip: To maintain the shape of the item, slick and drag a corner square). For example, if you want a small border to frame a photo, add the border to the entire page, then resize it to fit only around the photo.
Borders can be one of the following file types: .JPEG or .JPG, common for digital photographs; .GIF, common for scanned images; .TIFF or .TIF, also common for scanned images; .BMP, common for Windows graphics; and .PICT, common for Macintosh graphics (supported only on the Macintosh).
Instructions
Adding borders from the program
The following instructions are for adding borders contained in the program.
  1. Click the Borders tab.
  2. To find a border in a theme list, choose a theme and then click or to move left or right one border at a time. Click or to move left or right by one group of borders.
  3. In the Border Shape list on the main screen, select an oval or rectangle shape. Thin, medium, or thick shapes will create borders of corresponding sizes.
  4. If you are adding a solid color border, select the color in Solid Border/Background Color on the main screen. To choose a custom color, click More Colors and then select a custom color.
  5. Add the border to your design by doing one of the following:
    • Click the border to add it automatically in your design.
    • Click and drag a border to the desired location in your design, and then release the mouse button. A green box appears in areas that can use borders.
Adding your own border
The following instructions are for adding borders not included in the program.
  1. Click the Borders tab and then click Get Your Own Borders.
  2. Select the folder on your computer or disk that contains the borders you want to use.
  3. Click OK. Your borders from the selected folder appear on the Borders tab.
     note:
    To view the borders that came with the software again, select a theme in the Border Theme list. However, your own borders are not saved in a theme, so selecting another theme removes your custom borders from the Borders tab.

    • Click a border to add it automatically in your design.
    • Click, drag, and drop a border to the desired location in your design. The green box appears in areas that can use borders.
