OK, so I don't even know the basics of Photoshop, but I want to be able to create these embellishment thingies so I can put my grandkids into imaginary scrapbook scenes. Can't be happy with just inserting their photos as is. Of course not.
So I have googled and watched tutorials and checked out library books and could not figure it out. Well, it appears that the magic word is PNG. As in PNG file. Don't know what it is, but JPEG keeps the frame around the embellishment, while PNG the background is transparent. Ha.
In my pursuit of this skill, I have gotten very good at outlining with the magnetic lasso.
Just hit "publish" and see that there IS a background around my mint. So Blogger is not a scrapbook program. But I made this in Memory Mixer.
