Okay Kim, what easy tutorial are you going to show us today?
Kim: Today, I want to go over how to customize the prolines volume II. So, I’ve got my template up and I also have my photos up that I want to use for the template. And I’m just going to go over the basic changes first and then we’ll get into some more detailed work.
The first I’m going to do is I’m going to drag my photo and that I want to use for this large area. I have my move tool selected and auto select layer and show transform controls checkmark. And I have my layers up and if you need to open that up, you go to window. You make sure layer is checkmark. In the version all of the layers are organized into this folder to make a little bit easier to deal with it.
What I’m going to go do is I’m going to press this little triangle down without working on the large photo. And the photo is going to go right here. If you expand this, you’ll see it shows your photo here. And so I want my photo to go in right above that. So I’m going to select that layer and I’m going to come over to the photo that I want to use there and I’m just going to go ahead and drag it in. I’m going to go ahead and drag it out to the size that I want, and pressing shift and coming over this corner until I see the arrows and then I’m dragging up.
I’m going to go ahead and press enter and pull this back over. Then I’m going to right click this layer with the picture and click on create clipping mask, and that sets into place and then I can continue to make it as large as I want.
Okay so now, I’m going to go and I’m going to come to curve small photos and open that up. And I’m going to add the middle picture first so these are my—this red or more like pink area indicates that’s where our photo is going to be placed. So I’m going to do small pick middle. I’m going to highlight and I’m going to drag my photo in and put it above that area and drag it out, press enter. And I’m going to right click, create clipping mask.
And it’s kind of hard to see with this but you should have to be sure that you have the white area covered up, but this is house white in the top anyway, so it’s little bit harder to see, but you’ll see when we get the other pictures in.
Now, I’m going to get my next photo. Okay, so I have this photo here and I’m going to put that down at the top, so come in over here. And small pick top and drag it in and I’m going to shift and expand it. And I may end up cutting off one of these girls out of the picture to make this fit right. Right click, create clipping mask, press enter.
And when you open this up, it should have the guides on so that you can see what areas you probably don’t want to put anything important outside of the guides. So I’m going to go to view, show guides. So I don’t want anything too important in this area anywhere else on the edges of the photo because it’s possible that it could cut off depending on where and how you have printed.
Okay now, my next picture, I’m just going to do view organizes. I’m going tile this so I can see all my pictures. Okay, this will be next picture. Now that I’ve get it up, I’m going to go ahead and pull this back out. This is my bottom picture, so I come to small pick bottom and I’m going to drag it in and I’m going to resize it, shift, press enter. Okay, and I’m going to put this picture into place, right click it, create clipping mask and I have that picture in place now, view, fit on screen.
One little tip that you might find helpful is whenever this percentage down here is something that’s divisible by like 25, 50 or 75, you get a better view when you don’t get this jaggedly areas that make it look distorted. So I’m going to change this to 25 so I can get a better prospective of this is going to look.
Okay, so I have my pictures added. Now, I’m just going to change the colors. There are only two things that you need change on this template. So I’m going to start with this curve. I come down here and I’m going to double click and I’m just going to choose a color from one of these photos. So I’m just going to come over here and choose a color, turn off web only. And I’m just going to work with that color until I’m happy with it, and I think that looks pretty good.
If you had an exact color that you wanted to use for the theme, if you have like the hexadecimal color for the theme, you could just add that right here. And sometimes, you have to choose a color that coordinates with the picture because the hexadecimal color may not be showing up correctly in the photo, so sometimes it’s best to just use, to use a color that coordinates that’s in the picture.
Okay, so I’m going to go ahead and press okay. Then to change this bottom part here, click my move tool, come down here. I make sure I don’t have my word selected which I do right now. Let’s come over to this edge.
Now to change this, I need to change the effects and I need to click on color overlay and I’m going to click inside this box and come up here and sample this color and click okay, and it’s all customized.
Now, let’s talk about some of these letters. I’m going to click on it, click on my type tool and let’s say we want to change this—this is all in capitalization, so I’m just going—
