Creative solution for alpha channel in online album designer.

Posted on February 17, 2014 by Sweet Memory Albums

Desktopbased professional wedding album design software often supports alpha channel functionality and most importantly, the ability to blend photos into each other. Since our wedding album design software is webbased and therefore runs in any modern web browser, we were of the opinion that alpha channel functionality is not possible to implement.

This article demonstrates the "creative" solution to the problem we came up with.

Posted on September 26, 2013 by Sweet Memory Albums

When we started our premium flush-mount wedding album webto print business in 2008, it became quickly apparent that a lot of potential customers wanted to create their own wedding album design.

Nevertheless, we investigated the possibility to purchase a design software from a third party and it turned out that while the quality of most programs was low, the license costs involved figures well in the 5 digit area.
