    Photos blended with papers from ABL Fencerow Collection. This is the poster I made (instead of a Congratulations, Graduate card) for my niece. Her friend took the photos.

    How did you start?

    Back in the 20th century, I bought my first real digital camera, the ultimate 2 MP resolution!! It came with a CD, Adobe PhotoDeluxe (which came before PSE). Yada, yada, yada, digital scrapbooking

    siggy wonky

    After you upload the two images, you need to insert them side by side in the signature box. To do this, click once in the signature box, then click the first image under the Uploaded Images heading. This inserts that image into the signature box. Now click beside it to set the position for the next image. Click the second image under the Uploaded Images heading. BTW, your second image is 200 x 222, so it doesn't line up perfectly with the first which is 225 x 225.

    Tutorial on a Mask with a Frame

    Do you want the look of a fall out frame like these: I don't know of a tutorial, but I can tell you what I do. clip photo to mask merge add and size a frame graphic on a new layer on top on photo layer, erase areas that go past the frame, but leave area that you want to "fall out" of frame on frame layer, erase the part of the frame to allow the "fall out" use an eraser with 50% opacity to blend the spots where you want the frame to start its disappearance On my page, I did an opposite effect - instead of the photo spilling out over the frame, the photo spills out under it. So I did steps 1 to 4. Baby Robin

    "Thumbs" Icon

    The hidden file thumbs.db is a database file containing a small JPEG representing each of the thumbnails in a folder. Thumbs.db files are required by Windows to display a thumbnail for each icon. They are created automatically in the same directory as the thumbnails being viewed. You can safely delete any thumbs.db file although Windows will automatically recreate it unless thumbs.db is disabled.
  11. Always a pleasure to be of help!
  12. If you are applying the style to a low resolution image, the result can be blurry. Try applying the style to a high quality, high resolution image such as one purchased from the Boutique. Is the result blurry?

    Coloring only part of a brush/png

    Glad I could be of help, ladies. It's nice to be able to color within the lines effortlessly!

    Coloring only part of a brush/png

    Add a new layer over top of the PNG. Clip the layer to the PNG. Now start painting on the layer and you will see it covering the PNG. You can be sloppy because the color doesn't appear past the edges of the PNG! Apply a blend mode to the layer to get a more dimensional look.

    Printing issues (Mac)

    A common troubleshooting solution for any printer is to install the latest updated version of the printer driver. This is so much easier than a lot of people think. Go to the Epson website. Download the latest printer driver for your model and Mac OS.
  16. There are five color modes in PS. RGB mode (millions of colors) CMYK mode (four-printed colors) Index mode (256 colors) Grayscale mode (256 grays) Bitmap mode (2 colors) Change the color mode of the Illustrator image to RGB. That should fix things.
  17. I've not uploaded a layout for quite some time, so was pleasantly surprised to see that we can upload our pages bigger than 600 x 600, the max size of old. My recent page, I uploaded a 1000 x 1000. I've noticed a few other members also uploading bigger sizes. It's nice to be able to view "Other sizes" that are large enough to fill my screen, to see texture detail and admire some great photos.

    Photo Tips

    Cameras are so smart now! They can recognize faces and won't take the picture if a person's eyes are closed.

    Photo Tips

    Thank you, Angie! Good tip about camera phones and how "it’s not easy to balance the phone, hold other items, then press the shutter button in the middle of your screen to take the picture". My phone takes the picture when it hears the word "cheese". I love it! When I used to tap the screen, I would end up with camera shake.

    Layout Positioning for Photo Book

    If all the photos are of one person, they certainly can go on one page. Caption each photo with date and event details.

    Layout Positioning for Photo Book

    If I were to print a layout, I would do as Anne-Marie suggests. I would keep the photos small and have six or more of those phone pics on the page.

    People that print photos can appreciate the difference a good camera makes!
