Challenge - Digital Challenges : My Mum & Dad (Crop a photo into a shape)
by Chelsea Parsons
Simply fun stuff this week... crop a photo into a shape. It's fun to add a different edge to a photo or a whole shape to a photo like I did in this LO. I used a shape from Kristina Werner's "Card Frames and Sentiments" and in my layers I simply put the shape under my photo and then created a clipping mask. I did this on my MAC by holding down "option" and clicking the line in between the layers. But there are some great tutorials which explain it with photos and step by step instructions. Check out this one by Sande Kreiger - Tutorial for Grouping Layers by using a Clipping Mask in PS
You can use just about anything to create a mask to shape your photos with. If you have a favourite digital tag or journaling spot, use it. You may even have a picture that has a great shape like a chair or an animal. Experiment, see what you can do. Can't wait to check out your LO's.
