Can't Find The Color Swatch In February Club

03 February 2014 - 04:43 PM

I'm obviously being an *** about this - but I've unzipped and organized the Feb Club and for the life of me I can't find the color swatch. Can someone tell me which of the zip files it's in? I've looked through them twice. Appreciate any help - I get the feeling I must have missed one but can't figure which.

Folded Map Embellishment

26 January 2014 - 05:34 PM

I'd love to find a map -- not really  map that you can use for paper or blending, I see lots of those. But an embellishment that's an unfolding or partially folded road map, with, you know, the accordion style folding? The ones that are hard to re-fold after you've opened it? I want to work on a "road trip" kind of page, and the argument about unfolding and refolding the map is pattern between DH and me - LOL!

How To Use Paper Template As A Layer Mask

18 January 2014 - 08:56 PM

I'm using PSE 12.

Maybe I'm being dense.... but I'd like to use a Scrap Simple paper template as a layer mask. I tried creating the layer mask, then dragging the paper onto it, or copying the paper and pasting. But it won't go there. Surely I'm just missing something?


Calendar Product In Today's Newsletter

07 November 2013 - 03:34 PM

I was looking at the Assemble Your Own: Everlasting Calendar Super that was shown in today's newsletter.
Maybe I'm missing it -- but I can't figure out the size of the pages that this kit makes. It's not square, so it can't be 12x12.
Or are they all vector graphics so it doesn't matter?
I'd be interested if I can make something like 8 1/2 x 11, but I already have a 4x6 calendar kit and don't need another.

Smart Objects In Pse 12 (And 11?)

30 October 2013 - 10:33 PM

I upgraded to PSE 12 this week and generally like it quite a lot. But I had one weird thing going on, so I posted in the Adobe support forums this:
I upgraded from PSE 10 to PSE 12 this week and am confused about a change in behavior. I create a large blank document (3600x3600 pixels, scrapbook size) and then drag other items onto it to create new layers. In PSE10, the items I dragged in kept their original size. In PSE 12, they get resized to match the size of the document I'm dragging them on to. Is there a setting I need to change? Can't find it.

The response I got was:
For a few versions, including PSE 10, dragging up from the photo bin placed things as smart objects. In PSE 12 it places them normally, the same way a paste would do. If you want to duplicate the PSE 10 behavior, use file>place instead of dragging.

What is happening in PSE 12 is, when I dragged an embellishment from the photo bin onto my page, it would resize huge and cover the whole page. That didn't happen in PSE10.

I normally work by pulling a bunch of embellishments into my photo bin and then dragging them in. moving them around. To use file>place I have to find each one in its folder as I want to use it. This seems WAY harder to me.

I realize not many are on PSE 12, but I'm hoping PSE 11 works the same way and someone can help me. Can I place an embellishment as a smart object from a file I've already opened in PSE? Is there an easier way than going through the File menu?
