Using Order Packs

• Album Package - instructions on what should be included in the album package • Images - images and any finishing and retouching instructions With the ability to create Order Packs in StudioMaster PRO, a photographer can take advantage of the professional equipment in a larger studio, without incurring the expense associated with it. You can place Order Packs created in StudioMaster PRO in the Ordersin hot folder, which resides on the D drive. >>>To place an Order Pack in PIC Pro:

Select and drag the files created in StudioMaster PRO from the CD into the Ordersin hot folder on the D drive.

Figure C-1: Order Pack Created in StudioMaster PRO

Figure C-2: Ordersin Folder on the D Drive There is a size capacity for each job, which is pre-determined based on settings in StudioMaster PRO. If a job reaches its size capacity, another file is created to accommodate the rest of the job. One job can contain multiple files. If the job is broken into three files, for example, the three files are marked 1 of 3, 2 of 3, and 3 of 3. You must drag all files in the job to the Ordersin folder, for the job to process correctly. If you leave one or more file behind, the job stays in a continuous loop, PIC Pro indicates that the job is "Loading," and the job status continually says 330 PIC Pro V3.0 User Guide Last updated - 01/26/07 FUJIFILM e-Systems, Inc. 2007
