Hi,
Is it possible to edit a template once it's saved? I've created a couple of templates that I like but that have some errors I'd like to correct.
Thanks for any replies.

Short answer: not directly.

The only way to edit templates with seamless lite is if you get in the habit of saving all your layers as a 'shape' before you publish. It's a little icon that IIRC looks like a pentagon with a plus sign. Then you can open that shape in a new template, size it, alter it and republish the updated version.

It's a little easier if you purchase Seamless Studio - you can simply download your original template .ssf from the site, open it, edit it and re upload it.

Unfortunately, that means you can't change your existing templates unless you made a shape backup. ...Trust me, I feel your pain. :)

I have been away for a little while... but just to chime in here, there is a post on using the shapes tool here in the blog that I did when we first launched it - there is a helpful video on using it: http://www.colourlovers.com/web/blog/2011/09/21/seamless-lite-new-features-custom-shapes-shape-galleries-how-to

Hope that helps Prax also had a great answer. :) m.

Here's a new game to help us show off our pattern coloring and palette making skills! Make sure you love and fav along the the way any palettes, patterns, templates or colors that you enjoyed!

Step 1: Take a pattern from the person above you. I'm going to demonstrate as if the person above me is Piahr:

Bo_Peeps_Daydreams

Step 2: Take a color from that pattern. I picked:
Subtle_Dream

Step 3: Pick one of your own patterns. I picked:
Dangling

Step 4: Pick a color from that pattern. I picked:
Imagine

Step 5: Now make a palette with both colors!

Dreaming_By_Daylight

Step 6: And color a new pattern with your palette! It can be any pattern, and you can move the colors around if you like, but don't change any colors.
Sunflower_Splash

Step 7: Post it for everyone to see! It will look like this:

Subtle_Dream
