SHAREfactory™ version 2.00 introduces the new Photo Editor. This mode allows editors to compile collages of their screenshots and photos from the Capture Gallery. Below lists the different functionalities you'll find in SHAREfactory's Photo Editor. You can also view this tutorial video for full details.

Starting a Photo ProjectEdit

Photo front-end

The Photo Editor allows editors to create collages with up to 16 different photos.

From the font-end menu, select Photos. Just as with Film Projects, you can create a New Project, open a Saved Project, or Edit your Last Project, or view a Gallery of your past Exported Photos.

Just as with Film Projects, start a New Photo Project by selecting a Theme. All of the internal and DLC SHAREfactory Themes remain available in Photo Projects.

Finally, select the Screenshots you want to use in your Photo Project. You can use between 1 and 16 Photos in a single Photo Project.

Basic FunctionalityEdit

Once you enter the Photo Editor, the following options become available:

Frame LayoutEdit


Your collages can have frames from 1-16 photos and 1 background image.

You'll be able to find additional information on editing each frame below.
