How to add a different background?
So if you watch part one of this tutorial, you saw how I added these images with a clipping mask. Now I want to show you how you can do little bit more fun stuff with the images.
First of all I come to re-file, open and I'm going to just grab a digital piece of paper that I've bought from a scrap booking website. And I'm just going to show you how you can add this to your template. So I come to my template and I'm going to come down to background and I'm just going to drag it in and now the paper is in my background and I'm just going to size it and move it to how I want it. If you fit on screen and I can make it chill a little bit more of the design if I make it smaller, press enter, take my view back to 25%.
So that looks nice like that but I can also add more with the stripe. Basically I'm going to take this stripe and right now the opacity is reduced so I'm going to raise the opacity all the way up and I'm going to take another piece of paper that’s coordinating. I'm going to drag it on top. I've got my stripe layers selected. I'm just going to drag this in and I could resize it. But basically I'm just going to right click create clipping mask. So now I have a whole design with coordinating paper.
Another thing you can do with this is you can take each one of these images and you can come to adjustment layer and you can go down to black and white. And you can click okay, and then you right click it and create clipping mask and you’ve got a black and white image and you can adjust it with curves from there.
If you don’t like the way it’s coming out, it might usually when you change something to black and white you need to lighten it and you could do this to all three layers. I'm going to create a clipping mask for that so that it just affects this one image but you could do this step for each image. Another thing you can do is you can take this layer and you can just reduce the opacity and make it a little bit softer. And if you did that for all three images it looks really nice.
And for the next tutorial I'm going to show you how to reduce this images to 5x7 if you do not need this bleed area that it came with it. Right now it is five and a half by seven and half and I'm going to show you how to reduce it to five by seven.
