Attached is artwork I plan on inserting into qimage template. Am assuming this is a straight forward process but having a massive blank as to how this is done.

Any advice appreciated

Cheers

the big question I need answered is this - Can I somehow insert the image above as a template background? All my prayers will be answered if someone has had some luck achieving this.

This is similar to your other question but easier to answer since there is only one template/image. Add this image to the queue by selecting the image in the thumbnails, making sure the crop (scissors button) is turned off, and then drop down the sizes and select "Fit to page". That will give you a full page with this calendar on it. Now, click the little "F" button at the upper right of the preview page to put the page in freehand mode. That tells Qimage that you want to click/drag manually on the page.

Next drop down the sizes and select something smaller, let's say 2x3 for now. Also turn cropping (scissors button) on. Drag the image you want to go in the black space onto the page and drop it. If it doesn't appear, that's OK... it's just under the calendar. To solve that, highlight the first filename in the queue and press the down arrow on the keyboard. That'll swap positions in the queue and make your smaller image appear on top. You can now select the smaller image, size it, and drag it so that it fits just on top of the black area on the calendar. For more precision, you can click the full page editor button under the preview page and then click/drag/size. Note that if you use a template (last thumbnail) instead of a real image, you can save as a layout and then load that layout at any time using the "Custom" size and then "Layout". Once the layout is loaded, just double click thumbnails to add them in the black space where each template is. Note that to get the top picture to fit exactly in the frame, you may need to manually change the size in order to change the aspect ratio of the print. Looks like your black space on the calendar is 4:3 aspect ratio so when you add your image on top, start with a size of 4x3. That way, when you drag it, it'll maintain that aspect ratio and all you'll have to do is drag a corner to size and move it.
