I love to use my Adobe Premiere Elements 9 when creating my scrapbooks, I don’t necessary use it for my actual layouts, but I love to create my pictures, change color, add color, remove things, touch up the pictures and my favorite thing is to add fancy writing to my pictures. Did you know that adding writing can be soo simple… Once you are done you can send it to Walmart.com, Snapfish or any other print service and it will look very professional and you spend only the $.15 a picture ( or better if you can find a deal) and you will look like a million bucks…. Like you spend days creating…
Most Photo Editing programs have the same functions, so any program really should work similar to how I’m adding words in mine…
Step 1: Open you picture
Step 2: You need to rotated your picture if you like to write on the side, either left or ride. Click on Image – Rotate – and then choose left or right, depending on where you like to add the writing
Step 3: Choose a color for your writing, I took white
Step 4: Choose the letter style that you like for your project
Step5: Click on the button that has the letter “T”, that button will let you write, after you click the “T” button, click anywhere on your picture, where you would like to write… start writing anything you choose to add to your picture
Step6 : Click Image – Rotated – and move your picture back into the correct position
Look.. this is what your finished picture will look like… so simple, yet will look great in your scrapbooks
Check out some of my Scrapbook pages, where I used this technique in my pictures… doesn’t it look cool and give a statement…?? I love to write on my pictures or objects that I add to my scrapbook, makes it so much more personal.
I was not asked to write this post nor wil I be compensated by using Photoshop Element 9. Just my opinion.
