Welcome to EarlK Design!


The EarlK Design blog consists mainly of entries that show how to do things using Adobe Photoshop that I hope you will find helpful and give your creative mind more tools to work with.

I use Adobe Photoshop CS6, and sometimes Adobe Illustrator CS5, Lightroom 5, and Corel Painter X. However, I believe that much of what I show can be done using Photoshop Elements.

Template Freebie from EarlK Design

Here is a freebie template that I hope you enjoy. It is a layered PSD document. In addition to just using the template, I hope that you will notice how it is constructed so that you will be able to create some of your own templates in the future. I created the template in Photoshop CS4. For one of the text layers, I used Paths to create the shape of the text. However, I believe that those of you who are using Photoshop Elements can still use the text area and enter your text into the shape since I created the shape in CS4.

Here is what the template looks like in the 4 photo setup. 


There are many layers. You can turn the visibility of the layers off or on depending on how you want to use the template.  I believe the layers are all named so that you can see what they are.  Here are some of the other arrangements that you can create.





In addition, there are several layers at the bottom of the layer stack that can be used to vary the background. There is a solid color fill layer, a gradient fill layer, a blending layer, and the leaf layer. Notice the blending modes that have been used and also the changes in the Opacity in some of the layers. All can be adjusted by you for what you want for your layout. Turn what layers you want to use on and those that you don't want off. Mix and match! Have fun.


If you want this template, you can download it from 4shared.com. The PSD file will be in a ZIP file when you download it. You will have to unzip the file to use the PSD file. To download the file, Click here.  If you haven't used 4shared.com before, when their page opens, on the left-hand side of the page there will be a blue rectangle with a white arrow pointing downward with white text saying "Download Now." Click on that blue box. This will take you to a new window that will have a box that says "Your download link will appear after wait." There will be a circle with the wait period counting down. After the wait, where the words "Your download link will appear after wait" were, you will see the words "Download file now." Click on those words and your download will begin. At least this is how it works on my iMac using the Firefox browser.

Enjoy life and I hope that your digiscrapping gives you more enjoyment from life!

Earl,

Was looking through your blog and see that you photograph a lot of flowers! I think these layouts with your favorite gardening photos would be perfect together. Very textural and kinda neutral with your pics! 20 pager?
