One does not have to agree with musings to enjoy them, just as one does not have to be the same as someone else to appreciate who they are.

Tips from the Pros

Using ScrapSimple Digital Layout Templates – No Cropping Required!

Note: Tutorial created using Adobe Photoshop CS4 with Windows 7

ScrapSimple Digital Layout Templates actually do more than just help you create a well-composed digital scrapbooking layout. One of my favorite things about using the layout templates is the fact that I get to eliminate the step of cropping my photos.

Let me show you how easy it is to use ScrapSimple Digital Layouts Templates: Lots of Shots to use only the best parts of your photos without ever having to crop them!

First, open your layout template of choice. I'm going to use one from the ScrapSimple Digital Layout Templates: Lots of Shots 2 because, as usual, I took about a billion pictures of our family trip to Kaene Point to capture the fun and adventure of our day. I want to include as many of the photos as possible in as few layouts as possible, and ScrapSimple Digital Layout Templates: Lots of Shots will help me do that!

Next, open your photo and drag it to your work space. As you can see, the photo I'm using is big with lots of ocean and rocks around our family.

Digital scrapbook layout tutorial screenshot: Drag photo onto work space.

I want to focus primarily on my family in the photo and eliminate some of the excess background, but I don't want to bother cropping my picture. Easy peasy! Simply move your photo layer in the Layer Palette until it sits directly above the layer containing the photo opening where you'd like your photo to be placed.

Digital scrapbook layout tutorial screenshot: Move photo layer above photo opening.

It will look similar to this when your photo layer placement is correct. Your photo will appear tucked behind some layers and on top of others in your actual layout.

Digital scrapbook layout tutorial screenshot: Photo is between template layers.

Next, with your photo layer selected (highlighted), simply click Alt+Ctrl+G (in Photoshop; Ctrl+G in Photoshop Elements) to create a clipping mask. Your photo will clip itself to the photo opening layer below it in the Layers Palette, and if you've done this correctly, you will see a little arrow pointing from your photo down to the layer below it in your Layers Palette.

Digital scrapbook layout tutorial screenshot: Create a clipping mask.

The only portion of your photo that will now be visible in the layout is the part directly above the photo opening you've clipped your photo to, like this:

Digital scrapbook layout tutorial screenshot: Photo is clipped to photo opening layer.

Using your Move Tool, simply move your photo until the portion of the photo you want visible is centered above the photo opening. You've eliminated portions of the photo you didn't want visible without even having to crop your photo! Nice work!

Digital scrapbook layout tutorial screenshot: Move photo into place.

Sometimes you'll also need to resize your photos to fit them correctly in your ScrapSimple Digital Layout Templates. Follow the same steps as above by creating a clipping mask with your photo and the photo opening of your choice. If your photo is a lot bigger than the opening in the template, your photo will look something like this when clipped and centered above the photo opening:

Digital scrapbook layout tutorial screenshot: Photo is too large for opening.

With your photo layer selected (highlighted), use your Transform Tool (Ctrl+T) to resize your photo. Simply hold the Shift key while grabbing one of the corners of your photo and dragging the corner toward the center of your photo until your photo composition looks satisfactory to you.

Note: Holding down the Shift key while resizing your photo will avoid distorting your photo; this will scale the proportions, keeping the integrity of the photo composition the same, just making it smaller or larger.

Digital scrapbook layout tutorial screenshot: Hold Shift key to resize photo proportionally.

Once again, you've avoided the step of cropping your photos simply by using a clipping mask and resizing your photo! I love any tips that help eliminate time-consuming steps, and I hope you find this one helpful.

ScrapSimple Digital Layout Templates to the rescue, once again!

Games

July Message Board Game: Summer Scavenger Hunt!

Dust off those thinking caps and hunting boots! We're having a Summer Scavenger Hunt, and you're invited! Join us for the July Message Board Game, where each Monday through Saturday during the month of July, a member of the Welcoming Committee will post a clue in the official game thread. The clue will describe a product from the Scrap Girls Boutique. To participate, search the Boutique for the product and post a link to the product page in the official game thread.

But wait, there's more! In a new twist to the scavenger hunt game, on certain days you will be sent to the Scrap Girls Gallery to look for layouts using specific products or collections, and then post a link to your layout comment in the official game thread.

Three winners will be drawn from all the members who correctly identify a product or find Gallery layouts throughout the month. Each winner will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Good luck in your search!

For complete details, visit the Monthly Message Board Games folder on the Scrap Girls Forum.
