Say Hello to Our New & Improved Creator Software

Using the Creator Software
Back to Blog

We’re always working hard to improve our Creator Software and add new features to help you turn your photos into something special. The latest version of our software offers a smoother, simpler journey when you’re choosing and creating a product, which is complemented by a fresh new look.

Although this new and improved software looks a little different, you can still create all of the same products you love, as well as some brand new ones we think you’ll like. These design changes have been made with you in mind, and we hope you’ll find it even easier to browse and design our products.

How to update your Creator Software

Make sure you update your current version of our software so you don’t miss out on these new features. Next time you open the Creator Software on your computer, you’ll be prompted to update. Simply follow the on-screen instructions to download and install the update, which should only take a few minutes. Once that’s done, you’ll be able to enjoy all of the fantastic new features we’ve added.

Any projects you’ve been working on will still be there, so you won’t lose your work, and you’ll be able to continue with your designs using the updated software.

New Creator Software on MacNew products, new features, new look

Here are a few of the things to look out for in the latest version of our Creator Software.

Improved CEWE PHOTOBOOK Assistant

Create a beautiful book in minutes using the CEWE PHOTOBOOK Assistant. We’ve improved this tool so it’s quicker and easier to use, so now you can design your photo book in just a few clicks.

Simply drag and drop individual photos or entire albums over to the page, then choose a style. You can then rearrange your images as much as you like to create your perfect photo book.

Simpler, clearer journey

Whichever product you’re making, it’s now even simpler to navigate around our software. When creating a CEWE PHOTOBOOK, you’ll be able to see a clear overview of the options you’ve selected, like size and paper type, and these can be easily changed.

Themes for every occasion

We’ve introduced Themes for photo books – a collection of ready-made layouts complete with backgrounds and clip art. These are organised by occasion, so whatever event your book is documenting, you’ll find a Theme to match. Add your photos to one of these Themes to create a beautiful book, or alternatively you could edit a Theme and use it as inspiration to create your own design.

Matte Photographic paper

Our new paper type combines the beautiful finish of matte with the impressive effect of a layflat paper. Perfect for that extra-special photo book.

Instagram and Facebook import

Upload photos directly from your Instagram and Facebook accounts to turn your social media snapshots into a book you’ll always treasure

Cover highlights

Make your memories shine. Add gold, silver or gloss highlights to the cover of your CEWE PHOTOBOOK to give it a luxurious finishing touch.

New names, same great papers

When you open the updated software, you may notice that some of our paper types have new names. You’ll still find all of your favourite papers, just under a different name. For reference, here are the names of all six of our paper types:

Classic paper – previously Standard paper
High Gloss paper – previously Glossy paper
True Matte paper
Classic Photographic paper – previously Premium Photographic paper
Gloss Photographic paper – previously Glossy Photographic paper
Matte Photographic paper – NEW

    The statement that “Any projects you’ve been working on will still be there, so you won’t lose your work, and you’ll be able to continue with your designs using the updated software.” is untrue. I had spent hours on one of my projects and having updated the software I now get an error message that says “Unfortunately this project cannot be edited with this version of the software.” This is extremely annoying and means that time is lost. This is true of all the other previous projects so clearly not an issue with just this one project.

    My photo album file size (.xmcf) is 1.2 Gb, but after checkout it only took one minute to send the album to you.
    It is not clear if the upload starts while editing the album or only at the end.
    But it makes me worried about the quality of the photos.
    Could you confirm that you receive the full quality file (1.2 GB) please?
    Thank you!
