I'm getting my feet wet with Proclaim, and I like it so far.  However, I can see a time when we will want to mix it up with the backgrounds/graphics, etc.  I see there is a "store" option for templates, but even simple ones seem to be $400.  That's crazy!  :)

So, do any of you know of a way to get decent backgrounds/templates (or how to create my own)?

Thanks!

Jeff.

HI Jeff

I think the 'Store' feature is one of the worst aspects of Proclaim. However the price shown is for membership - once you are a member you can have access to all the content for no extra charge.

Of course I will probably change my mind about the store once they give us access to Sharefaith or Family Friendly Churches Trust .

How to get logs and post them. (now tagging post-apocalyptic fiction as current affairs)

That clears it up.  I was a little worried.  But, now that I've seen the potential of Family Friendly Churches Trust, I have hope in the Proclaim store!  :)

Dear Jeff,

We have been using Proclaim now since early November. We do not subscribe to Graceway, etc., but instead create our own backgrounds and screens using CS5 and other applications. 

Apologies if you are already aware of this, but I wanted to ensure that you had picked up that it is possible to upload your own jpegs into Proclaim and then uses these as backgrounds for your content slides (we regularly use custom backgrounds to song and bible content slides).

Please let us know if you require assistance in uploading files to use as backgrounds.

To produce your own decent content slides you would need to have access to software other than Proclaim (e.g. CS5) which is, broadly speaking, not cheap. Given this, I can imagine that for some churches, the $400 might be slightly more attractive. I tend to agree with you, however, $400 is not cheap. 

God bless, 

Andy
