Curves are a bit different. A collar will make the bit cut a slightly larger radius on outside curves and smaller radius on inside curves. The result will be a finished piece slightly different from the template, but not consequential. To find where the bit will actually cut, run a pen in a loose bearing with the same offset as the collar along the template to draw the layout line.
Website owners can directly benefit from the vibrant and healthy marketplace of templates. With so many professionals seeking to break into the market, many quality templates are given away at no cost. These free templates often have the same quality as premium or even custom templates, but without the high price. Free templates allow for anyone with a website, individuals and businesses alike, to have a website that looks great at no cost.
Consider goals and objectives- A specific goal or objective should be the driving force behind getting the right template. If you don't know what to expect from customers, or worse yet, what to deliver to them, then this is a clear example of misplaced priorities that may result in a failure. Anyone building a website should always remain focused on what is being sought, and not just what they think should be done.
Regardless of whether you decide to implement business unit-based distribution of templates or not, I am a big fan of placing a copy of the appropriate templates locally on every computer. This makes supporting mobile users much simpler as their company templates are there regardless of whether they are online or not. It also makes transitioning "master" locations much simpler. While the location is easily controlled via Group Policy, you have little control over when the individual machines actually update their policy, especially if they are off site often.
Few other options for editing the provided PSD files exist. Only using the native program will allow full advantage to be taken of the file's information. Some programs can open PSD files but cannot edit them. Some may be able to import the layers of a PSD file into their own native format for editing. A freeware alternative is "the GIMP". GIMP stands for "GNU Image Manipulation Program". The GIMP can import and read PSD files, though it may have trouble keeping text in an easily editable format. Other options are Macromedia Fireworks and PaintShop Pro. Though cheaper than Photoshop, Fireworks is still on the expensive side of the spectrum. Coming in around $100, PaintShop Pro is a cheaper alternative to Photoshop or Fireworks, but will also require some time and effort be devoted to learning its capabilities. Again, it's important to point out these programs will not replace Photoshop as the ideal editor for the native PSD format. They will likely not support advanced features of the original PSD files and may not even be able to open some PSD files.
Templates should be dimensionally stable, durable and capable of taking the fine details. Solid wood is a poor choice for templates as it is not dimensionally stable. While steel is stable and durable if you accidentally touch a spinning bit to a template made from steel, you will probably wreck the bit and the template. Acrylic is transparent and allows for visibility of the work beneath but a slow bearing can generate enough heat from friction to melt a template made out of acrylic. Although all of these materials can be used, Medium-Density Fibreboard (MDF) is probably the best choice and has shown to produce great results.
