Hey Billy,

Love the design! I edited it successfully, played around with the fonts and created a resume I really like. When I export to PDF, however, the first page’s contents are all very jagged and choppy (text, images, etc). This happens when I save it in both Interactive and Print PDF. Every other page is fine. Very odd!

Any idea what’s going on?

bilmaw

Hi, glad you’re enjoying the template. Any chance you could email the PDF and/or InDesign file to me at billy@bilmaw.com and I’ll take look.

Great layout and look but I am really having problems creating 2 pages in a small PDF size. Small being 200kb or below as this is all the recruitment agencies will allow to upload regards CV size. :-( any help welcome. So far I’ve got it down to 283kb by converting it to jpeg then to pdf but it doesn’t look great.

bilmaw

If you’re using the PSD files rather than the InDesign files, it will be difficult to create a very small PDF with all the raster data a Photoshop PDF contains.

If you can, I would recommend using InDesign, as a print-ready PDF can be as small as 120kb.

Thanks, Billy (bilmaw)

Thank you Billy for your quick response and for the advice. I’ll give the Indesign a go.

Organised, sleek, professional and detailed is some of many examples of a great resume layout- like yours. Well done bilmaw, wish you the best. :)

Is it possible to extend this template to a 3-page CV or does this template on support 1-2 pages?

bilmaw

The pages included are just a sample of what’s possible, you can edit or add as many pages as you like using the master pages provided in the template as a guide.

Thanks, Billy

Using the Photoshop version, how do I export it as a PDF without it having loading issues. For some reason when I export the file some of the images don’t load. Like the stars or stripes.

Is there any way to convert this to Word so that it doesn’t get shot down by the resume parsers? Or is there a safe way to save this as PDF? I’m moving to Toronto and I need to make sure my resumes are going to make it through.

bilmaw

You can export as a PDF from both InDesign (Export) and Photoshop (Save as) so you shouldn’t have any problems uploading to a resume site.

Perfect. Another quick question; how do I increase/decrease the bubbles for “skills”? I don’t see how to do this in the documentation.

bilmaw

In InDesign – Select the number of dots with the Direct Selection Tool (White Arrow) and choose either the Grey or Main Colour Swatch from the Swatches Palette (Window > Colour > Swatches).

In Photoshop – The Skill Dots are separate vector shapes in their own layers. Expand the folders which contain them and then fill each layer by double-clicking the layer icon and choosing either grey or your chosen main colour.

Hope this helps, Billy (bilmaw)

Hi, thanks for design. But there is a problem on Photoshop CS6; warning is “it’s not a valid document”.

This sometimes happens when the file has been corrupted during download or unzipping the file.

Please re-download the files again or try unzipping them with another program. Hopefully this will solve the problem.

If not, please let me know: billy@bilmaw.com

Hi! Thank you for this great design. I just downloaded the files and when I open it in CS5.5 Indesign, I cannot move or edit a single thing:( Nothing is locked. Please help.

bilmaw

The pages are set up with Master Pages so they may seem non-editable but you can override each section and edit, preserving anything you don’t need to change.

To be able to edit the text in the Master Page’s Text Box on the each page, hold down Ctrl + Shift (PC) or Cmd + Shift (Mac) and click on the Blue Text Frame. This command overrides the Master Page and makes the Text Box editable on the page.

Other options are to edit the Master page directly or you can override the Master page completely by Right-Clicking the page in your Page Panel (Window > Pages) and choosing ‘Override All Master Page Items’.

Hope this helps, Billy.

Bill thanks for the earlier guidance… I’m on my way at this point but have more questions (sorry, doesn’t seem worth it for $7 does it?).

Under the “Social” section, I wondered if there were icons for other services? I’m applying for a role that involves IT and Photography so was looking for 500px and LinkedIn. Either something specific for these two or perhaps a generic social media icon?

bilmaw

At the time I created the template, I included just a couple of the more popular social icons (like Facebook/Twitter) and I understand that others have requested more icons.

I’m planning an update very soon which will have a few more icons but in the mean time I can email you the icons you need if you like.

Thanks, Billy

Sorry for being lazy! I found it, thanks again for your great work!

Switch off the Light layer groups as they are on top of the Dark layers.

Billy one more question please! I am using CS6. How can I save 2 .psd files opened in CS6 as a unique pdf file?

bilmaw

It’s a bit more complicated when using Photoshop, you have to use Bridge to create one (follow this link):

bilmaw

Thanks for your purchase.

My template is available for Adobe InDesign and Adobe Photoshop and to edit the files, you would need to have at least a basic knowledge of these programs.

The help file included will take you through the features of the template and how to edit it.

If you’re having difficulty, I do offer an editing service for a fee. If you’re interested contact me on billy@bilmaw.com.

Love the template! However, reading the comments, have you updated the linkedin logo?

bilmaw

Thanks for your purchase.

I’m working on an update at the minute to include more social icons and other updates to make using the template easier.

Feel free to download a free social icon pack (just search on Google) and paste what you need into your file, which is easy to do, in the meantime.

If you have any other questions, let me know.

Hi…purchased this but does not work nor load. I am no computer geek, what is format it is downloaded in to use? making zero progress. thank you

bilmaw

Hi, thanks for your purchase.

You will need either Adobe InDesign or Adobe Photoshop to edit this template. A basic working knowledge of these programs is required as I cannot offer one-to-one training on the software, just questions/problems with the template itself.

Thanks, Billy (bilmaw)
