Digital Fourth of July Memories

Advertisements

I love family, fun, and free time to get together and create beautiful memories with loved ones, especially around holidays. I’m always taking pictures to have for tomorrow. There is nothing more satisfying than to see those snapshots amid gorgeous little graphics that exemplify the occasion. With the Fourth of July coming up, I imagine I may be able to assemble among my besties and collect a sum of photographic memories to edit and preserve.

I typically edit my pictures on my MacBook Pro. It has a lot of disk space needed for memory intensive applications I use to design my layouts.

I also use digital kits such as the latest Multimedia Crafts Digital Freebie called, “Fireworks” and other digital graphics on the Multimedia Crafts Digital Etsy shop

In addition to the device used for creating these virtual projects, Adobe Photoshop is my go to program used in these developments. There are, however, multiple Adobe products, such as Illustrator, InDesign, and more that can be employed to get equal, quality, digital results. You can pick and choose which application best fits your needs or even get the entire Adobe Creative Cloud subscription to access your favorite editing software.

No matter which program you elect to operate, you can still have fun creating memories to share for the coming years. Capture those precious moments. Take those pictures. Make those scrapbook pages and layouts of your loved ones. Sentimental instances are very important. You will be so happy you have these when you look back on those times.

I hope this article was helpful. Thanks for stopping by. Happy crafting!

Digital Scrapbook Pages: Creating in Adobe Photoshop

Advertisements

Adobe Photoshop provides an array of fun tools and features that allows users to explore their vast ideas. From making scrapbook pages, and embedding photos, to creating textured styles, fonts, and editing motion pictures, Photoshop is an essential application I use in lot of my projects.

Photoshop was used when I made the picture above. I inserted a photo of my Grandfather, and added some digital graphics I both made and acquired from various digital sites.

The dark blue background page with vintage script was created using a combination of styles, colors, digital stamps, and various type fonts. I employed the warped text command tool on the upper menu to give the text a rippled effect. This page is available on Pixel Scrapper, where I am a level 3 Commons graphics designer.

The wooden background image was made using a page from the Multimedia Crafts Digital etsy kit “Weathered Wood.”

I added additional png images from Pixel Scrapper and Manu Design Studio on etsy to give the picture a vintage flare.

In addition to Photography and editing photos, I make my own scrapbook paper. Photoshop offers various colors, styles, layers, shapes, effects, and blending options to give your pages any look you are trying to pursue. That application is how I made the Multimedia Craft Digital freebies on this site, as well as on my etsy shop Multimedia Crafts Digital , on Pixel Scrapper, and on my Multimedia Crafts Digital Facebook book page where you can find even more freebies.

What I really love about Photoshop is the ability to create motion pictures. As if editing and creating still photos wasn’t enough, you can even make films and movies from this application. This is what I use to make my YouTube videos. Although Adobe Premiere Pro is the primary cinematic editing software used, Adobe Photoshop can still handle what you need on a budget.

You can accomplish almost any type of digital craft with Adobe Photoshop. No matter how much you mess up, you can undo your changes. You can save your files to virtually anywhere, and work from multiple devices. If you love digital designing and you have never used Photoshop, you should certainly give it a try. It is so much fun, delivering great quality in your work.

I hope this article helps. Happy Crafting!
