Picture borders like the example you see here. The process is actually quite easy. And with the supplies pictures off already isolated leaves, you can start quickly to make your own picture border. If you want to use your own images off leave, you can check out my previous close on how you can make them isolated from their backgrounds together with some tips that will make using them in these kinds of products more easy. At the end off this cloth, I will show you how easy it is to make a lot of different items working from dish documents . So enroll now and I see you in the next video. 2. 01 - What Is Needed: everyone welcome to this class to get started. You needs images off Leafs that all orderly, isolated from the backgrounds. You can prepare the images yourself and how you can do that. It's comfort in another class. Or you can use the seven pictures that are supplied for you to download with this cloth, and they are already isolated from their backgrounds so you can use them immediately. 3. 02 - Preperation and Info: in this video, I will show you some preparation steps before I want to show one thing. Um, one off the things. I did this. Make sure that all the pictures I used are the same pixel with Peter 800 for small leaves or 1000 for large leafs. And there are all ships to tree on its DP I generation. Why I did that. I will show you now. This document is also set to tree on the d p I in. If I will import the images in these documents, they come in all quite thick. So if you want to use the images one of marks go, You can set your documents to tree on the d P I. If you set your document 250 dp I were born strange. They already are a bit smaller but as you can see, there are holes in the same size range. So by changing the document you're working in, you can decide how big your images appear For the example we make. I work on the documents off 72 picture French. If I imports the images here, you sheet that l will become quite small. But Still, because Darrow the images tree on the TV I they are the same scale. The next step, I will do some organizing. 4. 03 - Importing the Leaves and Adding Drop Shadow: Hello. I opened to BET Blank documents. Midsize 1920 by 10 80 72 pictures. Strange, but I going to do now. It's place, the images that I used to work with one way you could do it. It's just dragging the molding. And and I arranged only the first in the loft, and I selectable and I outlined them. It's a little bit, and as you can see, I've got here out of select and it's to group now and I show you the difference. Laser. But what I can do is, um, now aligned them Sure that size shots are easy for me to get, and this creature out of select will just automatically select the correct layer. If you click on it another way, you can place files. It's my using place embedded. It's go to the folder where you have to file in place and it's It's the same, and I like dragging them from the distal. So this one I can cancel. But I will do now if at the drop shadow toe belief, my most dish one boss the most it on top off another image and I will shew mean so that there can see what's this happening and I go to effects. Drop shadow by default. The drop shadow A Chateau Black. But I want a slightly brownish or that it is not pure black, and we could make it a bit. And this is just also personal preferences preference to see what you like, I think. But I will do for the leave. I will shut distance to Shero, meaning that, um if you set the distance quite high, you see from this angle it moves down by shutting the distance to zero. It is around the total leave and then you can play of its two. She how you like it. I don't want so half much that it should be there. And I think 15 and then eyes unless work for me. Okay, it's stripped a fiddle. That's night. Iran. Evil. She it's what you can do is goopy layer style and now a select all the other based layer style an issue concede f now all the same, Chego and I closed the mall 5. 04 - Grouping Originals and Creating Bottom Row: The next step that I want to do is just make a group original, and I hide its and I going to work with the GOP group. John Paul Weston Correctional Layer to full back to and now it is quite simple. It is an out of flick group I switched toe out of Flint. Let Well, I'll show you the difference if I click now. This layer, she it selects the whole group. If I move this to layer, it's elects only one leave, and that's what I want to do. And now I just gonna pick leaves and copy them toe where I want in creating a border. You can do that in two ways. You can use all 10 commands well, clicking and dragging and then put its Teoh very once. Or you could dip lick eights, delayer like this and then move its it this a little bit. How you prefer I do it like this and how you see it's going around. Collectives, cults and commands select in case select duplicates select. Then you get most of Marantz, the tree organization, them later year and green, and I do this totally random. It issue you just put them together. How you like it. But the most important thing is filling the white space. Now you can see I sometimes move accidentally and there for U f Also the backup. Copy this one. Another rat, please. Men, Someone for their 6. 05 - Adjusting the Bottom Row: I select now all the lesion took and then moved him out off the original layer and make a group from theirs. Still got this group that that can hides it now. And we're working on this group. Okay, I've selected in that. Now that I can select individual layers and now I can modify. I routed. Rotate this one by most. This one. It's higher between left. No, I lied, Kip. - More , please. Which to your surrounds. And it is Just play around until you find something that you like. And I make one of thes bigger to break its two written man. I rotates this one. Could this woman bigger? And I want that one on top. No lights, no, I've created the bottom layer. 7. 06 - Duplicate and Rotate to Create the Other Borders: next step. I just copy the group and then what's holding shifts? Roads, aids? They're all layer now. I can regulates. And if you want to, you can shake a few off the leaf to make it a little bit less Kobe. It spits. I think it's fine. Competes again in this time. I don't do it exactly straight. Okay, some like there. Not some bits, too. It's getting a little bit off organic feel. And again, just a copy. My carpets, man. I got rotates a copy, Select a whole group and more. Fritz, you know I can grip it. Select group, and I can grab it and you can no read, please. And that sits. You've great. That's a picture of order and you can You tions will show like this and you have already to difference. Picture born ish 8. 07 - Rearrange some Leaves: in this part, I will quickly show you how you could arrange a few leaf. For example. Um, this one and this one. It's selected in its automatically, gents, to the correct layer I out of select layer now. So I moved us to hear Click Away and I get now the yellow one on and maybe this one of its . And in this way you can make a few civil subtle changes. But I'm happy with this results in the camp. I think it's fine. 9. 08 - Adding Text: okay, in this part, I show you how you can usually at some text alerts. No, just at some guides. Is that center from the image it's I've got center text in one way. You can easily, um, check if it's a center. When you have shelled trance firm controls on you can see now it's from the center. It's quite nice tip. Um, you know what you can do for the foolish Nice is, um, copy the layer style again. Fraction pull corporate, a layer style base layers. Now that's reshoots modified to drop shadow, I think. Tradition item. We want to have some four facts, and we can also shown in and we can Mitch, for example, the color better. I personally for this kind of things don't like the pure Blick, I think, making it Maurin the color. It's nice, and then you can make its a little bit more if it's still dark. But it's not black. You can she how big he wants, how self door large it should be to think to rush this. Okay, 10. 09 - Adding a Background Image: OK in this video, I will quickly show you how you can put a picture behind. I download that a few images and I dropped him right from the desktop into my documents. And Aiken, skill them later place. Now, for example, if you're months, you can usual type me off your picture with your picture border ready. What you can do is, for example, turn off a few off the layers, then off the texts again or, for example, use something like this. Intuition, other forms. This is very bolts. You can't do it. You could, for example, a little bit less since parents. I put it on awful. I lay blending modes, interpret Victor under percents, and now it seems like it was originally painted on its and, uh, it's wetter down. Continue from make it a bit more extreme. That is, this just to fill you some possibilities like you can do now you have still the flexibility to change a lot off the things you already prepare its You could take out some off the leash in only show a few. I can, uh, show. That's quickly, For example, I only once this one supply moved out of the group in turn, whereabouts going distant off this part. This was used to show you a lot off the options you have and how you can usually make a lot of different items. 11. 10 - Wrap Up - Capture the Fall: Thank you for taking this class.
