I really like this article on using different light sources in your photos. Great tips to improve your scrapbook ideas

Designer tip for your scrapbook page ideas

IN THE DESIGNER’S STUDIO WITH JAZZMIN DESIGNS
http://thedailydigi.com/in-the-designers-studio-with-jazzmin-designs/

I always love to get the focus on a page to the photo that I´m scrapping. I often use the multiply modus for this. Just duplicate the BG (or any other paper you wanna use) you´re using and set it to “multiply”. Then play with the opacitiy and use a smooth eraser in the part you want to highlight on your page! This is a easy trick, but can be very effective sometimes!

How to Organize Your Digital Scrapbooking Supplies... & find it quickly

Find It Quickly: Digital Scrapbook Kit Storage & Organization

What do you do when you've got so many digi scrap supplies on your computer? How long does it take you to find them?

Here's a top class tutorial on how you can effectively organise your digital scrapbook supplies

One of the first things I considered when I started digi-scrapping was the tracking of my kits – who is the designer and where did I buy the kit.  I also had to consider “how” I scrap.  I’m pretty much a kit scrapper.  I like things to coordinate and I have limited time to scrap.  Hunting and pecking through all of my kits for elements to go together isn’t really an option.  I also wanted a means of keeping my digital scrapbooking stuff separate from everything else on my computer.  So that is where I started:

So how do you photograph them before they can’t even stand being around you?

Perfectly Fitted (Photoshop) - digital scrapbooking tutorial #digiscrap

Perfectly Fitted (Photoshop)
http://www.scrappersguide.com/tips_ps/fitted-ps/

I love frames. I really love old frames. Frames come in all sizes and shapes: stamp frames, oval frames, rectangle frames, square frames, heart frames. Get the picture? When trying to fit my picture into the frame, I worry about space showing. You know, the space where your picture ends and the frame starts. There is an easy way to fix this.

Great tips by Lisa Hanks. I've been using Photoshop for years and there are still things I overlook that could speed up my productivity when digi scrapping and this article shows one of them :)
