P.S. Does anyone know the "name" of it?
hmmm i *think* at least one co. calls it "southwest" corner if i remember right... thinking they had that same thing ( maybe with a different name in the su book?) it's been a while since i looked at their punches.
I'm back..........our fridge is dead..........well, dying rather..........fortunately Cody noticed and we got everything moved downstairs. I think the fridge heard us talking about the dishwasher that needed replacing and decided to die also. James said we should never have said the word "bonus" around the appliances!
I guess I'm so used to it for editing my photos I haven't figured out how to actually make pages and stuff with templates....I know I should be able to....but I do only have Elements and not the whole enchilada if that makes a difference?
I know lots of people who use elements for it. It's one of the recommended programs for that.
How was your work flow?
What I do is open the photos I want. I look at them, get color ideas, and then go looking at my papers. Once I choose my papers, I go looking for any element that I can possibly find. If I think I might possibly use it, I add it. I rarely work on a page with less than 20-30 elements open.
Then, I start with the papers. I layer whatever papers I might like and resize so that you can see them. To resize, I right click, choose "Free transform" then shrink (you can use shift if you want to shrink all sides evenly.)
Once papers are layered, I drag the pictures on.
Then I drag every element on and "turn them off" in the layers palate. I turn each one on as I play and if I don't like how it looks, I turn it back off. Once I have things how and where I like them, I go back and turn old ones back on again to see if I need anything else. Then, I delete the leftover "off" ones from the layers palate.
I move stuff around, change it up and down, and voila. Done. I flatten, "Save as" the page title, close out everything else (saying "no" if it wants me to save changes I made to elements) and voila.
I don't ever use premade templates though. I've just never done that.
Hmmm.....well one thing probably doesn't help is that all my digi papers, etc. are all on my old, dead laptop....so that's a bummer! But then too, how do you keep importing things into Photoshop? I can import a watermark but so far that's about it!
Umm...importing like digi papers and digi elements.....I had a bunch saved from various sites. But I seem to have issues trying to get them all into Photoshop where I can pick and choose as I try to make layouts. I have no idea if that even makes any sense to you! LOL
Ah..maybe that's what I need to do....definitely can't handle looking at little tiny thumbnails! Ok, so I think my vote may go to wait to see what Jaimee learns in her first actual Graphic Arts class that started this week! Having a kiddo in the Arts just may be my saving!!!
