Thursday Tutorial Vault: How to Use Quick Pages

Beginner Tutorial: Quick Pages
by Julie Ann Shahin


One of the questions that beginners often ask me is where does a digital kit go when I download it? To make it easy for myself, I always download it to my desktop. If you downloaded something and can't find it, re-download it again by doing the following...

DOWNLOAD FILES
1) Go to the download keys on the web page such as the one shown in the example below
2) Right-click on the download link
3) Click on Save Target or Save Link As and save to your desktop
4) Repeat for each download link for your digital kit purchase

This tutorial will show how I use this download for a Quick Page Album that saves time and gives you a stylish and fantastic result in a fraction of the time!

UNZIP FILES

1. Once your files are downloaded to your desktop, right-click on the zipped file. I always scan with antivirus software.
2. Right-click on the zipped file and choose extract files.
3. When the file is unzipped, you can delete the zipped file.
