In Topic: Using Brush Frames

You could brush over or under the photo. Or you could brush a dark stamp under and then stamp a lighter copy on top and offset it a bit. You can try a stroke on the photo and see how you like it. If you want the stamp to look more natural -- like when you put a stamp on an actual photo, my Natural Text Actionhelps with just this thing, but it only works in full Photoshop, not Elements. There aren't any rules -- so you can pretty much do whatever you like! And if you don't like it, there's always CTRL+Z (undo). :)

In Topic: Photo Size

Hi Sandy!
In Photoshop's preferences, you can select if you want something that you pull in to your document to fill the page, or come in at normal size. You might want to check to see if PSE has something similar.


As for resizing your photos, I recommend a keyboard shortcut. If you have your photo layer active and on your keyboard press COMMAND and T, this should put a boundary around your photo with little squares on each corner. If you hold down on the SHIFT key, you can pull or push those little squares to resize your photo quickly. You want to hold the SHIFT key in while you do this so the photo stays in proportion.


Hope this helps!

In Topic: changing the colour of strokes in photoshop elements 10

When you go to select the new stroke color, do you see anywhere on the panel where it says, "Make default," "New Style/Effect," or something similar? In full PS, it is easy to re-set presets and add new styles/configurations by making selections in the panel and then selecting either "Make default" or "New preset." Make default, obviously, changes the default setting for that effect. "New Style/Effect" actually adds that style/effect to your palette, so you can get to it with one click.
