Week 2 of Project 52

I am not a Pro at Photoshop and I am a traditionalist when it comes to scrapbooking, but I thought that once a month I would share with you a new trick or tip that I am learning as I complete my digital Project 52. This week I am going to show you how I rotated my original PSD Page Template file so that the pictures I took would work with the file. My little lady wanted to use these 3 vertical photos this week but really wanted to use a template that was designed for horizontal pictures. So I had to learn something new.

First you need to do is to open your PSD file in Photoshop.


Next You will need to click on the "Images" tab in the upper left hand corner of your screen and scroll down to "Image Rotation" then "90 Clockwise" and right click.


This will change the orientation of your page and thus you can now use vertical photos in your blue boxes rather than horizontal photos.


Now you will want to save this file as a PSD with a title that you will remember. I used the original template name and added the word "Rotated." Click save and then open this new file in Photoshop and let the fun begin!

Now the pictures that my daughter picked will fit a PSD file that we have on hand and I did not have to create or purchase a new file. 


I hope that you all are taking a bit of time every week to document a few moments of your life! We would love to see what you are up to so feel free to add your your page in the comments or a link to your page and we will come say hi!
