Although you might be able to cut out text along the edge of your photos, the script will make the whole process much faster, easier and more accurate every time. And you have so many options to choose from that you can run the script many, many times and get different result every time. You get to choose the text, the font, the edge to cut from, the alignment, and you even have the option to rotate, change size, skew, stretch the text to your liking.
You can run this script directly on your photo and the script will automatically create a duplicate so the initial photo will be left totally intact. You can also run the script on a paper to create a journaling mat, or turn this into a frame. This might be especially good if you have a photo where no edge can really be cut out from.
You can grab this script in my store: Creation Cassel .
And if you want a chance to win this script, check out this thread in the Happy Place and add your name to it, giving me suggestions on what set of words you can envision for a template pack.
Of course, you surely will want to see the end result up close. So i made these 2 templates. Use them to trim a photo, or to journal about this year, or to frame fun photos. Simply click on the image to start the direct download.
And if you use those for a project of yours, i would LOVE to see it. Who knows? It might get displayed in this blog or in my newsletter.
Although i am not using the Pay-with-a-Tweet, i would really appreciate it if you did tweet about it anyways!
News from the Campus
Before you forget, there are still places available for our webinar on Details in the night, which is a repeat of last week. This time, i hope the schedule will allow our Aussie friends to attend (other people around their time zone are also invited!). It will take place Saturday, Dec 10th at 10h45PM Eastern time.
(it is FREE)
Check what we’ll show:
Free Products: for everyone visiting the Campus, you can grab this Gift Card Wrap box and if you are registered, you can also download the set of 6 templates that you can customize as you wish.
As we are already planning for more webinars for 2012, what would you like to see? Post a comment with your suggestions.
This week, a new student registered to theElement Creation tutorials section and here is what she posted in her intro, the very first day:
I found out about this through the DST forums. I am looking forward to trying these out during the Christmas break. I do not usually like video instructions, but i must say yours are nice, clear and easy to watch. love being able to download the instructions – nothing better than having a prompt sitting next to you as you go! – Marion

Do you sometimes, wish you could place text within a shape and have the text automatically wrap to the next line? You know that PSP does not have that feature. So, do you find yourself having to add spaces here and there to make the text somewhat fit the shape or the space you want to use? This script will now do it for you. Use one of the multiline shaped paths included (others will be made available soon), enter your text, and run the script. You can modify the size of the shape if you want and the text will fit that size/shape. If you want to add another paragraph, just go ahead. (be sure to read the instructions before using this script for better results and no frustration!).
And if you want a chance to win this script, go add your name to the RAK thread at DST. I will draw for one winner on Monday night.

This week, my new release is NOT a script, as you might expect, but it is still a PSP specific product: a set of 10 tubes. If you are not too familiar with tubes, you might have seen some in your PSP, and they look like individual pictures that you can place here and there on a layout or other montage. These tubes are more than that. Although they are made of individual images, they are made to follow wherever you draw, and create a rope along the way. You can hand draw any line, or apply this string along a path or even around a vector shape for a regular look.
You get 10 individual files, in 10 different colors. If you want to de-saturate them, you can. You can draw loops, bows, strings, doodles, etc.
And if you want a chance to win this set, go add your name to this thread at DST forum.
If you are still unsure about how good these will really look, or if you are not a PSP user and would still like to use something like that, i made a simple hand drawn alphabet. You get 26 individual PNG files for the 26 basic capital letters.
Simply click on the image to download this set of alpha.
So, what do you think of this? Did you notice that it is called Braided ropes #1. Well, in the near future, other sets of tubes will be released, but i am not telling you when it will happen. You will have to follow this blog, or follow me on twitter to find out!

Do you like to have a list of all the elements and products used in a layout? Do you find it tedious to have to type that information in a txt document without forgetting any? But then, after you have played around with your layout, you don’t remember which element is still there and which one is not used or finally hidden? This script bundle will solve most of these. You will have instructions to configure your PSP so that you can copy or paste elements onto your layout with ONE keystroke each, and this will also copy the filename of the element as a layer name on your layout. Then, a third script will make a compilation of all the meaningful layer names and will save them in the Creator Information tab of the Image Information window. Now, this information will always be WITH your layout. No more lost txt file. You can refer to it anytime.
This script is available in all my stores as a bundle. One little detail though, the Copy and Paste scripts can only work on PSP9 and up, because of a particular feature that didn’t exist in PSP8. So if you have PSP8, you can purchase the Compilation script alone, instead of the bundle.

Create some faded mirror images from any photo, element, shape or text. Add this effect to simulate a reflection in the water, or on a polished surface. You have the option to create that reflection on top, on the bottom, on the left or the right. You can get some overlapped images, or let the script delete that overlap.
Use an image slightly rotated for a very interesting effect. The script will work on any raster, vector or background image. If your document holds several layers, only the active layer will be used.
And go add your name to this thread in the Happy Place of DST if you want a chance to win this script.

Did you ever see those paper scrap pages where a long phrase is cut up in individual words? Did you ever try to do that in digi? Most of the time, it is a pretty tedious task, but no more. This script will just do that for you, and you are not limited at all. In fact, you can pretty much decide everything. Of course, you can have the text you want. Then, you choose the font you want too, and the color for the text and the color for the paper. You can have opaque paper, or translucent. If you choose translucent paper, you also decide on the opacity; maybe you want to pretend you wrote on a piece of scotch tape, which is very translucent, or on tissue paper which is more opaque. It is your call. You can then decide to have all the papers cut straight and evenly, or go crazy with irregular shape and size. But wait, that is not all. You can also ask the script to separate all the words without any paper. If you are working on a layout, the script can, if you choose so, to place all those word bits on your layout for you (no need to copy and paste dozens of bits) and it will even rename each layer according to the word on it. Neat huh? I am telling you: it probably will take you longer to decide on all those options than it will take the script to execute it.
You have also a chance to win this script by adding your name to this thread in the Happy Place at DST.
Want to see this script in action? Here is a layout we did for the ADSR5, challenge #10.

Check this neat sampler just for you. They were all made using the Round Word Frame. Each frame is 1200 x 1800 pixels to match any of your 4 x 6 pictures. Use them on the pictures, or even in the background to incorporate your journalling inside.
Although each frame is of a different color, you are allowed to colorise them to match your picture or your layout.
Click on the picture to download. And if you used them, please, show me what you do!!! I would LOVE to see it!

Did you see my first Word Frame script? It was creating a rectangular frame where you could insert text. Now, you can get a round (or elliptic) frame with the similar features: you get to choose all the options of color, line type, line thickness, location of the text. In the case of a round frame, you can also choose to have the text go clockwise or counterclockwise. This gives you the opportunity to create very interesting frames.
Remember that this script will generate the frame on a separate layer so you can use it on your picture, or without it. And you can run the script on a blank canvas too for other use. How about placing the frame off center and partially off the picture? Or how about using the frame to create a wordart?
If you want a chance to win this script, hop over to the Happy Place at DST here and add your name to the thread. Draw will be on Monday night.

With this script you can create custom line frame with text. You have so many options to choose from: 4 line thickness, 4 line style, 2 corner types, neat or grungy style. Then, you can place the text on any of the four sides, centered, aligned left or right, and you can also add text on more than one side too. But that is not all: you can enter the text you want, choose the font you want, and the color you want. Talk about options!!!
You can get this script in any of my stores.
And if you want a chance to win it, simply add your name to the thread at DST forum, here.
You get two frames with a Valentine Day flavor.Newer Posts »
