Out of all the videos I watch from two peas, yours are one of my favorites. And thank you for explaining the process so succinctly and logically - fits my style very well :)
I LOVE your videos, Dreaming of a scrapbook jedi series kind of like glitter girl :-)
Awesome, Melissa...thanks for sharing this, you've convinced me to go with Lightroom!
This video was so helpful. I am addicted to checking back each week for these PL videos. Keep 'em coming :)
THANK YOU for the LR video! Seriously, life changing information for me! For one of your next lessons, could you please show how to move between LR and PS so that you can use brushes or put text on a photo? THANK YOU!
Sorry! Just figured it out. Actions are not the same as presets.
Video - Project Life 2013: Echo Park's Photo Freedom
Galleries: Scrapbooking, Project Life
Hello, and welcome to this week's installment in Two Peas' ongoing Project Life 2013 video series!
Today's lesson comes in two parts. The first part is the creative side of things where we take a look at using Echo Park's Photo Freedom system in Project Life, and the second is more technical and is aimed at those who want to learn to print smaller photo sizes (2x3, 4x3, Instagram, etc.) using a standard 4x6 developer as well as a basic photo workflow for both Project Life and regular layouts.
I referenced my January lesson in this series a few times during this month's video, and you can find that lesson here [twopeasinabucket.com].
There are also several extra tutorials and links mentioned in this month's second video, and you'll find them all linked below. (Due to a quirk of the Two Peas gallery, these links have to be inserted before the first video.)

Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 (30 Day Free Trial) [adobe.com]
Picasa (Free) [picasa.google.com]
Photosheet (Free) [photility.com]
The photo editing/printing video is based in Lightroom and shows how to use print templates and presets in that software, but I also briefly show how to lay out four 2x3 photos in a collage in Picasa. I also have several written tutorials for doing this type of printing in different software packages on my blog and have linked them up along with links to download the various software packages (some of these downloads are time-limited trials) above.
Your creative challenge this week is to put the “Gallon, Quart, Pint” design principle of color use to work in your Project Life layout. Link up your layout (by checking the box for this lesson when adding your layout to the gallery) by the end of the month to be entered to win a $10 gift certificate from Two Peas in a Bucket!
