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.

Want to match the color of your paper to a photo?

This is really a test of my putting a movie that I created into my blog. However, for the test, I wanted to show you something that might be useful in making your scrapbooks. I have created a short movie on using the Match Color command in Photoshop. I use one of the papers from the set that you can download from and earlier blog entry and a photo of a lily that I had taken before. The recording is all ad lib. No rehearsals and no scripts were used. It is just me and my Mac having a go at it. Remember I am on a Mac using Photoshop CS4.

Let's see how it works!

You will need to enter the Password in order to see the movie.

The Password is:  matchcolor

Match Color from Earl Kreins on Vimeo.

It seems to be on the blog and working.

I will post it and see if it works in real life.

I hope you enjoy this format on my blog.

Live well and enjoy!

That was amazing! What a dramatic change in the paper!
I could only open the video by clicking on the little "match color" word.
Hmm, now the video screen on the blog post is open, maybe I didn't wait long enough.
thank you

Great little tip, Earl. It uncovers another of the things about PS that I haven't learned yet. Thanks!
