Extracting Images from Happy Saints eBooks for Personal Projects

The Happy Saints collection of printable ebooks has been hugely popular among parents, schools, parishes and ministries for their religious activities. The high-quality artworks can printed for personal, private and non-commercial projects.

The high-quality artworks are formatted as posters, cards, coloring pages and badges; but sometimes users want to customize them for their own games and activities. Many people have asked me how to extract the images from the ebooks for their own projects.

All Happy Saints ebooks are locked and password-protected for copyright reasons. You will not be able to directly open them in professional softwares such as Photoshop or Illustrator.

To copy images from the ebooks, you can use the Snapshot tool in Adobe Reader:
  1. Open the ebook in Adobe Reader
  2. Click on Edit > Take a Snapshot
  3. Click and drag to select the area of the image desired.
  4. Paste the copied image into your editing software e.g. MS Word, Photoshop etc.

Copied Images Too Blurry Or Pixelated
If you find that the pasted image is too low quality and pixelated, you may need to tweak the settings in your Adobe Reader.
  1. Click on Edit > Preferences.
  2. Go to the 'General' section.
  3. Check 'Use fixed resolution for Snapshot tool images' and set the number of pixels/inches  to 300.
  4. Try extracting the image again.

I hope this helps for those of you who are making your own custom Happy Saints activities! Please do share them with me by emailing some photos, if you can. 

New titles are being constantly added to the ebook collection. Visit the catalog here: http://www.happysaints.com/p/ebooks.html

Thank you and God bless!

Happy Saints A to Z card stocks are in!!


Happy Saints A to Z card stocks are in!!

I am happy to say that the final card stocks have finally arrived from the printers! Everything turned out great! They will be packed and shipped out starting next week, so expect to get yours in about 10 - 14 business days' time.



I have already sent out all posters two weeks ago. Many of you would have received them by now. If you have not, do give it a bit more time as air mail can be unpredictable. I hope you like them! Some feedback and photos of how you are using them are appreciated!

Once again, thank you for supporting this campaign!

The cards will also be available for ordering soon, for those of you who have not pre-ordered them earlier or if you are planning to get additional decks. Keep updated here!

God bless++
