For beginning Digi users a simple 'how-to" and a freebie


This is a very simple how-to on saving, organizing and using your digital stamps!  It really is very simple.  I can't stress enough to start your organizing the same time you start our collecting!  Time and Time again I have heard people say "I got this great Digi, I saved it and now I have no idea where it is"  Keep yourself organized, it isn't difficult!!


Step 1:  create folders to save your images in; In this picture you can see how I store my digitals. I have a huge curated collection of over 100,000 images, organization is a MUST! Let's look at one folder in particular: Digital stamps.




Step 2: I right click my image and save it to the "desktop"




Step 3: I open my Digital stamp folder, there are many categories of stamps. for this stamp I picked Flower illustrations I simply drag the flower image to that subfolder and leave it there and that is it!



Next time I want to use it, I go to the Flower illustrations folder, locate what I would like to use and right-click on it to copy.




Next, to print, I right click and paste in word program, or paint, or publisher or notepad. Adjust size and print - that is it!

I hope you find this helpful!
Thanks for stopping by and here is the flower for you to try!!

  1. thanks for image sis... I actually just click on image, (to open in largest resolution in image alone) then right click once opened by itself and select save and then chose my digi file in My Documents.
    Thus send it directly to it, and so no need to save to desk top and drag and drop. I usally just save directly to file in one step.
    However this step system certainly works for some files you dont have a folder made for yet.
    A really great digi, thank you!
    Thanks so much for sharing your inspiration!

    1. This was a post for beginning Digi users - Windows and Mac. This eliminates using documents which can be confusing to newbies.

  2. Thanks Ginny...
    I'm trying to become more "digital", for several reasons.
    #1. I'm allergic to latex (lol)
    #2. I'll be moving (if I can ever accept it, with God's help); therefore, downsizing.
    #3. You inspire me ♡😊♡
