Flowing Your Text in Photoshop

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cu0rzi1aWH4 If you’ve visited my site. You’ve seen this layout that I made. Anyway, I had people asking how I did this. In particular they wanted to know how I did my text to flow to the shape of the arrow. It’s not hard, and it didn’t take very long. I actually use this method for all my text whether it’s in some special shape or not. It’s so much easier to edit than just typing it right in.

Tut: Text in Shape

Well, there are a few reasons I wanted to do this page. First, I got motivated to do a page and I didn’t want to loose it. Second, I am in the SCS 2008 scrapbook challenge. Third, CK had an after Christmas crop last night and extending it to this weekend, so thought I’d join in… or at least lurk, do my thing, and feel like I’m with a bunch of ladies scrapping. I did this layout on my Mac using Photoshop CS3. The kit is a freebie from Two Peas in a Bucket by Cherie Mask, font is Angelina

Creating a Drop Shadow in Photoshop CS3

This video is in CS3 but the concept is the same. If you want to use the older version, the only obvious difference is where the “feather” option is. For the older version, you go up to Select –> Feather to get to this option. Why do you want to learn how to create a drop shadow? Unlike paper scrapbooking or card making digital work will give you a flat, just like a photo, image. You can’t feel or touch the texture of the different elements, photos, and paper. In order to give the digital image a 3D or just
