I like the DS plug in where it looks like sand ect for the given text. I am trying to set up a proof of concept for an idea I had with it but can't get the thing to work? I have the item in my side bar but when I 'click to edit' it says disconnected and there is nothing I can do. Looked easier in the tutorial video. Can anyone shed some light on this issue? Thanks

Hi Ourtown,

You need to download and install DirectSmile first. You can get a demo version from their website http://www.directsmile.us. The software package you need is called "Creator Pro". Once it's installed, just run it and keep it running in the background. Start PrintShop Mail and click the little envelope icon, then doubleclick the DS image placeholder. This should bring up the DS image selection screen.
