My Scrapbook Tutorial

Hello people this is my first tutorial making a scrapbook using photoshop. i make it as simple as possible & easy. I'll be glad if you find this useful. All you have to do.. find stock from the internet.. or i recommended take photo from above.

1. find photos for your scrapbook.

Example of original pictures from previous Scrapbook. mostly downloaded.

2. Extract carefully using Magnetic Tool got problem with extraction? click here.

Be patient, you'll get something like this. Save it & extract the rest of the photos.

3. Open new image for background and the flower. Here I'm using notebook stock as a background.Then go to flower window select all > copy > paste it to the notebook.

4. Resize & Rotate it, place anywhere you like.

Use the move tool (make sure you click on the show transform controls) resize, rotate, flip it whichever you like same goes to all the photos you want to add.

5. Use Blending Option to make it look 3D by applying drop shadow to the flower.

Go to the flower layer > right click > blending option > click drop shadow > drop shadow option
play with the opacity, angle, spread etc.

6. Make border using canvas size.

open new image > alt+ctrl+c
7. Paste!

Move the layers up and down. Want to learn more about layers? click here
