Thursday Thirteen-13 LifeTimez Hints and Tips

Thirteen Hint and Tips for LifeTimez or Memory Mixer

LifeTimez is the culmination of several years of software development, married with TLC's exclusive digital content -- combining the best in digital technology with the best papercraft designs! LifeTimez allows you to easily create stunning layouts on your computer using digital photos, document scans, music, video and much more. You can then output your creations in several ways: Make individual prints of each page, order a LifeTimez Photobook, or burn an interactive CD. LifeTimez and Memory Mixer are the same awesome digital memory software with different content.

  1. Before installing look at how much hard drive space you have. If you do not have a lot of space then only install the first cd which has the program and then browse the other 2 cds to see which themes you will use a lot and want to keep on your hard drive.

  2. Have cd's or an external hard drive to create backups of photos and LifeTimez themes

  3. Print out the User Guide and put it in a binder for reference

  4. Max out the memory on your computer to help with speed
