Does Cindy have the alpha used for the word Family in today's limited time freebie? I would love to buy that.

Are there any artistic rules for making clusters of elements for a layout. Does anyone know of a tutorial?

Syndee's Desaturation Tip

22 December 2016 - 09:52 AM

Syndee told us today how to make our brightly colored  photos work better with this month's club, The Family We Choose. 


I had never thought of it before, but it was a lightbulb moment. Could one change the hue saturation on the things in the kit? I tried it and YES you can do that. That makes all our kits more flexible. One can saturate or desaturate at will.

Shadows in Photoshop Elements 15

Is anyone with the new PSE 15 having trouble making shadows? I really need help!  Have never had this trouble with other PSEs.


Shadows with PSE 15

11 December 2016 - 03:46 PM

I'm starting over. I have SBA_SSActions_Shadows.  I was able to put those shadows into the  effects panel in the past, even though they are named actions. In PSE 13, I would choose the shadow I wanted and click it on the layer. Then a fx symbol would pop up by it in the layers panel, I would right (I think) click that and change the direction, opacity and width of the shadow. It was perfect. Now I can only click it onto the layer from the effects panel or the actions panel (I've tried installing it in both). I can find no way to adjust those important factors. Now all my shadows are very elementary and can be on the exact wrong side of the image. I think I need a real expert, but don't know where to find one, except here at Scrapgirls. This has always been THE PLACE TO COME for things like this. 


I hope I explained it well enough. I am really at a standstill; since I need good shadows on EVERY layout I do.

If no one has the answer  to this question, does anyone know how to get good shadows any other way in PSE 15? 


Merry Christmas!
