     8(mapping templates to images):[[BR]]
     9* load image in template window[[BR]]
     10* random template should load on top of image and can be manipulated cross-by-cross to outline image features[[BR]]
     11* if random template is too far off from image, go to template menu, select 'Auto Delineation', 'ASM AutoDelineate' and then select "****.asm". follow the instructions it gives.[[BR]]
     12* important crosses:[[BR]]
     13- two crosses below bottom of ear should be placed to indicate where neck joins chin (bottom of ear: where cheek and ear lines join)[[BR]]
     14- 2 line-less crosses, one for each eye, should be in centre of each pupil[[BR]]
     15- for lips, red line(TOP lip) should be along bottom of top lip and blue line(BOTTOM lip) along top of bottom lip[[BR]]
     16- lowest hair points should connect to the shoulder where neck and shoulder seem to merge[[BR]]
     17- nostrils each have one cross on inside, and one indicating where the nostril surround connects to upper lip area, there should be three other crosses outlining outside of lower nose[[BR]]
     18* make sure that NO LINES CROSS, especially in/around eyes [[BR]]
     19* when the template is complete, save as "template" not as "image"[[BR]]
     20* when you reload that particular image, the new template should automatically load on top of it[[BR]]
     23(merging multiple faces together to create composite face):[[BR]]
     24* in the double window, go to "average" menu and select "make average list"[[BR]]
     25* select tem as file extension. if the images you are using are tiffs/jpgs, put tiff/jpg for next option then tem again.[[BR]]
     26* when completed, this should create a txt file in the directory you have selected, make sure it is in the directory you keep the images that you want to use.[[BR]]
     27* access the txt file and take out any images you dont want, just delete the unwanted ones, get rid of the spaces and save[[BR]]
     28* when you have saved, go back to the "average" menu and select "average images..." and click on the txt file[[BR]]
     29* this will merge all the faces you have in the txt file together[[BR]]
     30* if image ends up tilted, you can go back to txt file and paste a more straigtened image first and save then re-average [[BR]]
     33(re-aligining image according to position of eyes so that eyes are equal height from base of frame):[[BR]]
     34* in the template window under the template menu, go to option "align eyes", in which there is an option to align eyes or batch align.[[BR]]
     35* if you are aligning individually, just select "align eyes"[[BR]]
