I'm very new to Colourlover and do love it for sure. I can make a basic pattern shape using the site version of the Seamless Studio. What I don't understand is how to upload your own designs (png, jpeg?) AND how to use the Shapes (under Browse) that others have already created/uploaded. Is that not allowed? As with many things technical, I understand just enough to be confused! Any help would be appreciated. (If there is a Help section on this, I've missed it).

Thank you!!!!

Hi, Tracy. Welcome to CL. :)
As far as I know, shapes cannot be imported through the Seemless Lite software on the website. As for using other members' shapes, I'm not quite sure but it seems off limits as of right now.

So, do people create designs in Photoshop or something similar and upload to the site? Some of these patterns I see surely are NOT created with the Seamless Lite. If so, that's really awesome and way more talent that I can muster!

Thank you!!

As I know..in Light version U cant import shapes...I make templates using Seamless Studio (not the web version:) and make my shapes with Inkscape for example...but people probably use other progs also...and also use free shapes from internet...so thats why their shapes are more complicated :)
But there are also some awsome shapes made in Light :)..so practise makes U more master :)

I'm not sure if download is permitted in seamless studio. What I've know is importing shape in seamless studio is allowed. Anyway, like you I have to master that more.

I am very pleased to see that the spam problem is being addressed and agree with Edith re being patient while these changes are taking place and also concur that some form of communication by those behind the scenes would be nice and greatly appreciated.

I have to admit that the lack of badges has actually been pretty nice. At times, I'm not a fan of the flood of badges on the sidebar. It's nice to not have some creations shoved in my face over and over again.
And I second Edith. I'd love to hear some news. :)

Have you tried another browser, like Google Chrome? I just tried Firefox and BPM (basic palette maker) worked fine and BPM also worked fine with Chrome. How about Photocopa? Have you tried making palettes that way? I'm just trying to help - I know it can be frustrating.

So, it let me make a palette today - a basic palette, once. The second I tried to make, I had the same issue of the create button not registering as a button.

Well, clearly different things are being tried right now, and it's not running perfect. I'm not ready to give up on this site yet. My one wish through being patient while the bugs are worked out and the spammers run off is that management would make a short statement. I understand that things are really hopping at the Monsef place with a new addition, congrats for that...just please say something, a couple sentences about where we are with the site revamp, pretty please!
