2 A quick note: The following pages are tips and tricks for Basic Photoshop users. You may notice that some instructions indicate that non-awpc fonts were used, and that some colors were created using the Color Editor in Photoshop. Please keep in mind that Walsworth always encourages our customers to use AWPC fonts and the Walsworth Formula Colors to ensure that fonts will print properly and colors will print as expected. As a publisher, we do understand there are many colors and fonts that can be used, but please be aware we cannot guarantee that all mixed colors or non-awpc fonts will print as seen on your computers. Most backgrounds were set up for a size 9 book, allowing for extra trim space. This is to ensure that regardless of what size book you print, the backgrounds will work for you. If you have any questions or concerns regarding any of the Tips and Tricks, please contact Computer Support at or We hope that you will find something from the Tips and Tricks that will add a little pizazz to your yearbook pages!
