Back when I was a paper-scrapper, one of my favorite tools was my corner punch which I used to make rounded corners on my photos. If you were to take a look at those old layouts, I am sure it would be easy to spot just when that tool was purchased, as I began to use that thing all the time on pretty much every photo.
I still like the look of rounded corners on my digital scrapbook layouts, although I don’t think I go as crazy overboard as I did back then.
Here is how to get a rounded corner on your digital photos using Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.
These instructions can also be used to create a complimentary paper matte for your rounded-corner photo.
You can really get creative with your rounded corners in your digital scrapbook layouts. I will have an example in an upcoming future post.
I just love when I stumble across something that makes my life simpler or easier. In this case, it is a Photoshop feature that I was unaware of until recently.
I am in the process of scanning and editing my old baby photos from the late 1970s. The photos are pretty well stuck in their photo albums, making it difficult (if not impossible) to remove them without causing any damage. So instead of removing them, I have been scanning the entire page. This leaves me with a scan like this to work with:
I was then cropping each photo individually from the original scan and doing a Save As to begin my edits. Then, thanks to a Google search, I came across this quick automation feature in Photoshop. (I am using Photoshop CS3.)
I have to say it does a pretty good job on the scans I have used it on so far. Here is a screen shot of the new files that were created from my original scan.
I am told that Photoshop Elements has a similar feature under the Image menu called “Divide Scanned Photos.”
