    Using a template

    I've had a lot of emails lately asking me how to use a template or where to find a tutorial. I include some basic instructions in every template I give out but a lot of people need pictures too. I usually send them to Scrapbook Bytes because they have tutorials for a bunch of different programs. Misty Cato also has written a very nice one for using Photoshop(It's the 3rd one down).

    So I decided to try my hand at writting my very first tutorial. It's for Paint Shop Pro because that's the program I use the most. I'm still learning Photoshop and don't feel comfortable enough with that program to write any tutorials for it yet, but I'm sure there will be some coming soon.

    In the mean time head on over to check out my tutorial for Using a Template in PSP. I included a link to a new template I made just for the tutorial, it's nothing fancy but good for anyone just starting out.

    Great job. When using deformation tool, I prefer the pick tool over the move tool... but like you say, it's all a matter of preference. BTW, how'd you do the bubbles? TFS!

    @Addicted-
    For the bubbles I used the Effect>Artistic Effects>Balls and Bubbles. With the settings as 46-20-75 amd non-intersecting. Cool huh!
