I can hardly believe that this is Part 12 of our photo layouts download — Part TWELVE, guys! I was just looking through my tutorial archives and I realized that it was around this time of year two years ago that I wrote my very first Photoshop tutorial (please don’t attempt it now — it needs to be updated!). The inspiration for that post was Erin’s scalloped borders over at Calivintage. It was on April 13, 2010. I never would’ve thought I’d still be doing tutorials and blog resources 2 years later. I couldn’t have done it without you guys. :) It’s been a great and wild ride.
And now here we are with Photo Layouts Part 12. The borders in this set are composed of 5 stripes which can be colored to your taste with the color overlay adjustment layer. In the preview shots after the jump, notice the magnification circle that displays the actual size of the borders. For the previews, I made the borders a single color with no stripes because they do not render well at small sizes — my thumbnails are about 295 pixels wide. These layouts look best at full size (not resized).
If you’ve never worked with my photo layouts before, you can get a general idea of how they work in this screencast. And, if you’re not a member and you want to try them out, you can download a free set here.
I want to thank Eléonore Bridge for giving me permission to feature her beautiful photos! Thank you, Eléonore! By the way, Eléonore has a new wedding inspiratioin blog, Un Beau Jour. It has fun DIY projects, gorgeous wedding photography, and whimsical party ideas. It’s totally worth a look!
The sample above shows that you can choose different colors for the stripes, which can complement the mood of your photos or your blog color scheme.
