I love downloads! Here's another one ...

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

I'm loving that I figured out how to add downloads to my blog ... I could hardly sleep last night ... so many different things that I can work on to offer as {free} downloads to everyone.

Here's a design that I originally created for baby announcements. I've adapted the design so that it can be printed as a 5"x7" photo ... all you have to do is add the picture of your choice in the space provided and you are ready to go! If you are a digital scrapper ... add a couple of words if you want!

You can download the file here.
Of course this is just for your PERSONAL USE ONLY ... and if you show it on your blog/website it would be nice if you gave me credit for the art with a link back to here.

Here's what the png overlay looks like (minus the green box and the words "photo here")

Here's how to use the png overlay using Photoshop:
1. FILE>NEW> create new document width  5", height 7", resolution 300, color mode RGB
2. FILE>PLACE> my png overlay file
3. FILE>PLACE> find a picture that is suitable for framing
4. In your layers palette move your picture so that it is under the png overlay.
5. Using your move tool move the picture around in the opening so that you crop the picture in a pleasing way ... you may want to enlarge or reduce your picture at this point for better cropping.
6. Now you are done and your 5x7 picture is ready for printing!
