In Topic: Can't figure these SS templates out

31 March 2017 - 09:13 PM

OK, so for that specific mask it is a lighter mask and has a folded texture to it so it might look/work a bit different than some other masks. Most of the templates in this set are designed to look like the photo is 'spilling' out of the frame. So in most cases, you will duplicate the photo and clip it one to the photo mask layer and one to the photo spill layer.

Here's what I did:

1-Clipped the photo to the Photo Mask Layer

2-Duplicated the photo and clipped it to the Photo Spill layer

3-On both photos I changed the Blend Mode to "Multiply".

Hi Dianne,

Which of the Art Mix blended templates are you talking about or all of them? I do know that some masks are meant to be more faint so that the photo blends into the background, but not sure which template you are working with.

I sometimes have that issue with my pen tablet, but most of the time it works. Who knows!

OK, I installed PSE 15 and the Shadow Me styles work just fine.

Belle, I was able to drag the shadow from the layer style panel to my shape and it applied it just like normal. Not sure why it's not working for you. Sometimes using a tablet (I use one as well) can make things a little trickier. 


I don't have Sarah's Action set of shadows so I wasn't able to test those.

Hi Lou Ann,

I haven't installed PSE 15 yet, but there shouldn't be a reason they wouldn't work. Actions are a different story, is that what you have?
