Today, I want to go over some of the modifications you can make to the quick poster volume one. I had an element user, e-mail me and asked me several questions and I thought it would be easier if I just did a quick tutorial than to try to explain it all in an e-mail.
Her first question is, “How do I get this frame to be a different color?” So I’m going to click on the move tool, click on the frame. Make sure that that layer is selected up here under window, you can view the layers palette by clicking on the layers and right now we are looking at it so it is up or you’re going to come up here at to layer, new fill layer, solid color and you can say, group with previous layer. That’s very important. That’s what’s going to make it only apply to the frame and not the entire project.
And then you just choose a color so you can just push this up and down or you can put in shades of small color. As you can see it’s changing so whatever color you want to choose. I’m going to go back up here in red and then you just click okay and that’s basically what you need to do for each of the frames. If you want the frames to be that color, you can, let me double click this, you can copy this, Ctrl-C and then you can do it to the next frame quickly so I have this one highlighted, layer, new fill, solid, we’ll put previous and then I just paste it in there, Ctrl-V and okay and now the next one is changed and you just keep going like that until they’re all changed.
Her second question was how do I change stroke and outer glow on the font and so basically you just come up here to the little effects, double click it and where you see red here that is going to core light with the red on the foot ball so if I double click that I can change that color. That is the outer glow.
The stroke is right here and you can also change that color and you can change the size of this. I mean over exaggerating it so that you can see how I’ve changed it, then you click okay.
And then her last question was “How do I change the font?” So basically you come here and double click, come up here and just change it to whatever font you want that what font you have, all this quickly change it. And then if it’s too big, then you can up here and change the size and then you can just keep adjusting that until it’s the way you want it.
I do want to show you in Photoshop how to change the frame color. So here’s a similar frame and here’s my layers palette. It’s a lot easier in Photoshop because you just double click the effects. You click on color overlay and then you just click in here and change it to any color you want. I’m going to turn this little for web only off and so you can just change it to any color you want and you can paste the code in here as well. And so it’s a little bit easier to change it in Photoshop.
