In Topic: Photo Paper

15 April 2014 - 06:24 PM

I use the Staples brand matte photo paper, too.  Last week I bought a pack of 50 pages for $14.99.  It does go on sale from time to time, too.  I discovered that my local Kinko's Fedex store can bind the pages with a wire spiral binding to create a book for about $5.

In Topic: Moving Part Of Picture Selected With Ellipse Tool

Hi, Sue:


What I would do is after you get the marching ants around the selected portion of the photo, click Control J.  That places the selection on it's own layer.  You can then delete the layer containing the entire photo.

See if that works for you.

Your card stash tutorials inspired me to try making cards.  Thank you!



In Topic: Green Peppers

My favorite method is to roast peppers then freeze them for later use.  I line a cookie sheet with foil and place the peppers on the sheet.  Roast at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, then turn the peppers and roast them for another 20 minutes.  The skin should be charred.  Cut the peppers open, pull out the seeds and stems (they usually come out in one piece), and peel the charred skin off.  At this point, you can cut the peppers into strips or you can dice them.  They are now ready to be put in Ziploc bags for the freezer.  Have fun!

In Topic: Dramatically Lifted Photos

OK.  Here are my suggestions.  Make sure you are in Expert Mode in Elements.  Then, drag the DLP (Dramatically Lifted Photos) file into your workspace.  Make sure you click on the Layers Palette. You will find that tab at the lower right side of your screen.


Then, drag the photo you want to use from the file where you keep it into Elements.  It should appear in the Photo Bin. (Click on the sower left corner of your screen to activate the Photo Bin).


Click on the Photo Mask layer in the Layers Palette to highlight it in blue.  Then drag the photo into your work space.  It should appear above the Photo Mask layer in the Layers Palette.  Clip the photo to the layer by clicking Ctrl G.  You can resize the photo by clicking on the Move Tool (found on the left side of your screen under Select).  If you need to resize the photo, click on the corner of the photo and either shrink or expand it by using your mouse.


When you have resized the photo, then click on the Photo Bin and click on the project page you want to use the frame on.  That usually is your scrapbook page.  Then drag the DLP with your photo in it into the project page and resize if necessary.


If you need more help with these frames, ask away.
