Please leave comments so I can address the things you don't understand or go over too fast. I'm hoping to make more of these, but I need to know what you know and what you want to know!
Find the layout template used in this tutorial here.
It's very understandeble i think
That shiftclick tip is so good thank you
Do you always make new dropshadows for everything or do you use styles sometimes?
Thanks for a really useful tutorial. It was a little fast for me as I am not too familiar with Photoshop yet but the great thing is that I can watch it multiple times and pause it when needed. The only part I found really hard to follow was when you merged layers as you did not say what option you were selecting from the menu after you right-clicked... but once again some pausing and replaying of the video allowed me to identify your selection as ¨merge layers¨.
Thanks guys. It's good to get some feedback on the speed. I really hate when I'm watching a tutorial and people are rambling on and on, so I try not to do that, but then I worry that I've overcompensated and it's too fast!
@Jessica: I do use styles now. I think this tutorial was from before I figured that out.
How to use this template? Its a JPEG, so not layered:
That layout was missing the .psd file. I've added it now, so it should work. Thanks for pointing it out.
Ill re-download then XD This layout is so cute
I like that contract tool. I didn't know about it.
It's really neat to watch somebody make a page and learn new tricks.
Wow! That was super helpful! Thanks so much! I can't wait to go give it a try!
Marisa on a lot of my downloaded templates, where I need to add the photos, it will have a file icon on the layers palette, with a marked out pencil icon. When you hover over it it says 'non-editable adjustment'. I watched the video to try to see what it looked like when you added your smaller photos. On mine, I don't have individual layers where the photos go. Can you explain what this means and how to add the photos. Sorry...I am still new to Photoshop. By the way, I have PSE 11 if that helps.
Thank you for the tutorial. C:
It was fairly fast for me to follow but most everything went well for me. I do understand how you had to move around the screen fast as there was the time constraint. Thanks.
thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!
Video was a little fast for me to retain all info but I'll sure try it. Thanks
Thanks for this tutorial, it was really helpful to watch you creating a page in photoshop!
Thank you for this and all of your other tutorials.
So this tutorial can be referenced for all layout templates? Just checking!
Sure, it's a similar idea for most templates.
I have just seen your tutorial for the Malaysia template. It was very easy to understand, thank you so much. I use Microsoft Digital Imaging program, and will use the template I have downloaded, using your instruction to help with layering.
I am only new so have not really had time to look over your site much but from what I have seen it is excellent.
I am looking forward to adding some of my layouts which I have created over the time.
Thanks. This was really great to see actual pages put together.
I really want to learn from this. There is so much to it. But I can't make the video enlarge in either firefox or photoshop. Is it supposed to enlarge? Is there a you tube link where it would enlarge?
I found a link to the you tube video in case anyone else needs it:
In Photoshop CS5, if I select several layers, the style (with drop shadow) is grayed out. They can't be all done at once unless there is a way I am missing? Does this work in PSE and not in PS?
I did learn a lot from this video. I never knew you could select multiple layers. As well drop the photos and select them all and transform them as well. Great Video.
@Peg: I'm not sure why it's grayed out. I'm pretty sure I made this layout in CS5, so it should work for you. The only thing I can think of is that one of the layers you've selected can't have the style added to it. Although, I'm not sure what sort of layer that would be?
