I purchased the photo key from Tube top. I like it well enough, however, I cannot understand why some of the background pictures cover the entire frame and others do not. I have noticed that some pictures ending with the number #1 will generally cover the entire background of the pictures, however most of the background scenes does not. Am I leaving a step out? is there more Ican to do to be able to use any picture as my background. Please help. thanks .

Hehehe, I think you mean TubeTape?

You can adjust the size of any background or foreground picture using the Scale control in the Position tab, so it shouldn't be a problem really. I'm assuming the original images differ in resolution, and that's why some open smaller. Either that, or some of the picture sizes you are working on are larger than others. If you import the same background into a 4x6 picture and an 8x10 picture, it will apear smaller at first in the 8x10.

Yeah, this is simply because some of the images are larger than the other images. You can use the Position tools to adjust the size as required.

Make sure you are opening the high res files too. Also, if you open a background and you scale it, when you open the next photo...it will be on the same settings as the previous photo until you hit the "reset" button.
