I have been asked many times lately how to make Quickpage, so I decided to write a little tutorial about it, so I now can give a link to anyone who want to know!
Oke, let’s start!
Make a layout how you’re used to do, but make sure you keep all layers intact!
Give some drop shadow’s to create a bit of depth in your layout, except the frames you want to get transparent for the QP! You can give some dropshadow, but make sure you give the dropshadow at a new layer so you are always can go further with step 3 to 5.
Here is a preview of my QP and my layerpallet, so you see a lot of layers!
*Step 2 *
Now activate the magic wand
Make sure you’re on the right layer in your layer palette
Click inside the frame, now change the layer (if you have more then one frame!) and click again at the inside of the frame.
Both frames are now selected
To be sure there is no line to see when you deleted the layers below, we are going to expand the selection first a bit
Go to Change Selection – Expand and choose for about 10 pixels
Now make sure you’re on the right layer in the layer palette and push the delete button on your keyboard
Repeat this until your frames are transparent
Your papers have to raster layers to do this move!!!
When you’re finished deleting the layers, Deselect
Now make sure you’re at the frame layer(s) and give it a little drop shadow if you like that
When you’re satisfied
Merge – Merge visible
Save the QP as PNG file
Here is my result!
