Sometimes it's the little things in life...
tip #1. Did you know that if you hold down the SPACE BAR in Photoshop and then click and drag your mouse, you can move around your layout and not have to use the scroll bars?
tip #2. Did you know that if you hold down SHIFT in Photoshop when re-sizing an element/picture/shape, that keeps it in the proper proportions so nothing looks squished or distorted?
tip #3. For those who use MMS (MyMemories Suite) it can be a bit of a challenge to get digitals into the program to use that aren't already in the program. But fear not, you can now use everything in your stash by following these simple steps!
From the Resource Gallery on the left click the camera icon. This will bring up an icon that says Select Folder.
From there you can pick the file you want. Photos and paper you can bring in from there, but for embellishments, you need to go to Embellies, Add, then in the box that comes up in the lower left corner it says Browse Other.
You need to have the kit you want to use open on the left in the Resource Gallery so you can choose from that kit. If you want another kit you have to open it on the left, then add thru Embellies again.
tip #4. There are a lot of ways to organize your stash of digi goodies. I like to organize mine by color, but that doesn't always work, so I started tagging my files so when I search for them, I have a better chance of finding what I am looking for. Here's a short and sweet tut on tagging. I use a PC and run Windows Vista, so your computer might be different than mine.
Right click the Start button and choose Explore. (not to be confused with internet explorer)
Once the Explore window opens up, go to where you keep the items you want to tag.
Click the item
At the bottom of the window you will see: Tags: Add a tag
Click on the part that says: Add a tag
Type as many descriptive words as you like.
Then when you search for one of the words in the description, that item will appear in the search!
Enjoy your awesomely organized stash!
