Easy Ways to Do Hard Work

As a child, when I figured out shortcuts, my mother told me, "It takes a very lazy or very smart person to figure out an easy way to do hard work." She didn't mean to imply I was that smart; sometimes she thought I was being lazy!

I like to think of creative ways to overcome obstacles and limitations, as well as saving time and money. I have discovered that tools, skills, and facts, even old technologies or old ideas, continue to help me. Here's a tale of how the things I'd learned and my bent for saving effort converged nicely.

I'm old enough to remember "erasing shields," those thin, flat or curved metal plates with die-cut holes of various shapes. When you mistyped a character on a typewriter or made a mistake at a drafting board, you placed a shield over the error and erased inside the appropriate hole. The erasing shield protected the surrounding text or drawing from scuffing and smearing.

I wondered if the first digital software masks were conceived by thinking of this concept. Using this idea, I came up with a way to define "spaces" on my layout and make it easier for me to view my work-related icons in Photoshop.

I am the CEO and designer for a software company. Part of my work involves measuring and centering icons for our products precisely. When you're designing images at 256x256 pixels that are used in sizes from 48x48 pixels down to about 16x16 pixels, misalignment by even one pixel is not acceptable.

The screenshots below show the "shields" I created to help me see my icons. The great thing is that this concept will also help me (and you!) to create a "shield" on our layouts to remind us of what will be cut off during the printing process. Let me show you how I arrived at this helpful little trick.

To work on my icons, I created a Shield Layer - semi-transparent black "holes" were cut into it for the exact sizes of icons I required. I added lines after cutting the holes so that I could identify vertical and horizontal centers. The left screenshot shows how the icon shield template looks, while the right screenshot shows one of my icons in progress using the template.

Customer Tutorial Screenshot: Example of an icon shield template.

Now, let's make this work for you and your layouts. To make a shield for your 12x12-inch layout, you need about a half-inch margin around your entire layout that contains nothing critical – no journaling, headline, etc. Photos or embellishments can bleed off the edge, but you don't want to lose essential text or image content.

In a new 12x12 document with transparent background, create a 12x12-inch black layer. Reduce its Opacity to somewhere around 85%. On a new layer, draw a square or rectangle in white or some other light color. The color doesn't matter as it's just temporary. The left screenshot shows the semi-transparent black layer; the right screenshot is the "casually drawn" white square.

Customer Tutorial Screenshot: Draw a square shape on a new document.

Next, use your Selection Tool (V). Open Window> Info, then adjust the "Width" and "Height" parameters by dragging the corner or side handles of the light rectangle to 3300x3300 pixels (zooming-in will help; you can see my adjustments here aren't quite perfect).

Customer Tutorial Screenshot: Size parameters of shape.

In the Layers Palette, select both the black and white layers. Choose Align> Vertical Centers. Repeat, selecting Align> Horizontal Centers. Now the white square is perfectly centered on the semi-transparent black layer. Press the Ctrl key and click the thumbnail for the white layer in the Layers Palette. It should have "marching ants" around it, as shown in the screenshot below.

Customer Tutorial Screenshot: Make a selection from shape.

Now, select the black layer and press Delete. Delete the white square layer, and press Ctrl+D to deselect the center region. Next, save the black 150-pixel border "frame" as a PNG file. Name it something you'll remember, for example, My12x12ShieldLayer.png.

The next time you create a layout, add the My12x12ShieldLayer.png file directly above your paper layers. It won't prevent you from having elements extend into the perimeter, but it will remind you to be careful of that region when placing important content on your layout. When you're done, simply delete the shield layer or turn off its visibility.

You can create shields for any size and layout format needed by following the steps above and adjusting for the size of your layout. Plus, you can protect a narrower zone if your printer cuts off less than a half-inch margin. When scrapping on darker backgrounds, reduce the Opacity much further for contrast, or change it to a semi-opaque white. In the left screenshot below, the shield has the Opacity reduced to 25%. The edges of the swirls may be lost in printing, but at least I know that in advance, thanks to my shield!

Customer Tutorial Screenshot: Layout with shield.

The layout below shows my finished layout without the shield. This method might be a "lazy way to do a hard job," but I think it's a way to save time and money - and that's always smart!

I like helping others, and I am grateful for the environment here at Scrap Girls which encourages, welcomes, and even rewards creativity and generosity of members to members. Thank you to the Scrap Girls community for being a place I can improve my skills and also give back.

Digital Scrapbooking Software Review: GIMP

Would it surprise you to know that there's a free software program available that has several of the same capabilities that Photoshop and Photoshop Elements offers? A program that with a little time and patience can help you create some great digital scrapbooking layouts and can also help you enhance your photos?

Say hello to GIMP. I had heard of GIMP software years ago and even went as far as downloading it, but I never got the chance to play with it. Today I downloaded the Mac version and began to play.

GIMP is an acronym for "GNU Image Manipulation Program." It works on both PC and Mac computers, and it was easy to download and install. I was up and running in less than five minutes. I was surprised by all the features it has to offer. Here's a sampling:

  • Supports JPG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, PSD files, and many more (which means you can use all your Scrap Girls goodies!)
  • Customizable Interface
  • Photo Enhancement
  • Layers
  • Drop Shadows
  • Text Tool
  • Eraser
  • Color Picker
  • Path Tool
  • Selection Tools
  • Cropping and Rotation
  • Masks
  • Painting tools that include: Brushes, pencil, airbrush, clone tool, gradient editor, and blending tool

You can even use Photoshop brushes.

According to the GIMP website, there are over 100 plug-ins available to add even more features and capabilities.

This is what the program looks like when you launch it:

Digital Scrapbooking Software Review: Screenshot of GIMP interface.

Notice some of the tools in the Tool Box look similar to those available in Photoshop (PS) and Photoshop Elements (PSE):

Digital Scrapbooking Software Review: Screenshot of GIMP Toolbox.

Here's my first attempt at playing in GIMP:

Digital Scrapbooking Software Review: Digital scrapbook layout in GIMP.

Now before you start giving your Photoshop or Photoshop Elements the evil eye, I must tell you that GIMP is definitely different from PS or PSE. There are a lot of features that Photoshop has that GIMP does not, and it did seem harder to use, but in all fairness I have been using PS for six years.

With any unfamiliar program, there's bound to be a learning curve, but with a little practice, you are sure to be on your way! Make sure to check out the GIMP website for information and tutorials to get you started. If you do a Google search, you will be amazed at all the information and tutorials that pop up!

Happy scrapping!
