  • 3. Move image around, resize (hold down shift to keep proportions) and click enter when ready. Notice the layers
  • 4. Select the Type tool from the toolbar (you can select vertical if you wish)
  • 5. Choose your font. This must be appropriate for your style of publication and you should only use a maximum of three per page/design. Use the move tool (V) to move anywhere you want. Click back on the text icon in the tool bar to reselect and edit
  • 6. Download a barcode from the internet (you can find transparent ones meaning only the black bars are visible. Place the barcode in a suitable spot, hit enter (remember to resize with shift key)
