New script – Blurred Fill

cass-BlurredFillYou probably have seen those images where a video has been shot vertically, but it has to fit in a horizontal space, then the extra on each side is a copy of the main image, but blurred and darkened to keep the focus on the main image.

This script will achieve the same effect. You can start with any kind of photo, whether it is square or rectangular, and then, you can "fit it" inside an image that is rectangular or square.

This is a great way to fit your photo into a space that is of different proportions without having to crop the photo.

Use this strategy to fill in a carousel or a slide show. Or use it as a header, or to fill a PowerPoint presentation of some kind. Or just fill part of your scrapbook page.

Get this script in the store: Blurred Fill

cass-WoodenWindow-Sample1Since this script is about creating a special effect on your own photo, i can't really create a sampler from any photo of mine. Well, I could, but i doubt you would find it very useful, so instead, i created a different sampler based on one that was VERY popular recently: the Wooden Window.

I created two windows in png format: one is using a fine wood while the other is more rustic, with visible nail heads holding the pieces of wood.

Both windows are 3000 pixels wide so you can use them for a scrapbook project, or even size it down too.

Place your favorite photo behind it for a wonderful display.

  1. that’s a great idea, it would be very usefull with a maks, it happens so often that I apply a mask on a photo and it doesn’t fit as the photo doesn’t have the same size as the mask, so the mask is stretched.
    Or in a filmframe, as I often want to use some photos that are not the same size.
