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.

EKDesign_Template_004Landscape FREEBIE

Here is the fourth in the series of the EKDesign 11 X 8.5 inch landscape templates for your layouts. The template was made using Adobe Photoshop CS4 on a Mac. However, I believe that users of Adobe Photoshop Elements can also use it. This is a fully layered .psd file with many layers that will give you lot of flexibility in how your layout will look. Here is what the basic template looks like.

I created this template for you from the layout I did for the 2011 7 Days in May Day 3 Challenge. This is how that layout was for Day 3.

The template that you will download for your use has a layer that is called "marbled" that you can easily recolor to the colors you want by using the technique of using the Paint Bucket Tool with a low value (around 5) set for the tolerance. I show you earlier in a blog entry on using the Paint Bucket Tool how to do this.   Click here  to go to that entry. Using that technique I recolored the marbled paper layer very quickly to the following.

If you wish to download the template Click Here.

This will take you to 4shared.com. You can download the file from there. This file is in a ZIP file and you will need to unzip the file to get to the PSD template file. 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. Also, 4shared.com only allows one person to be downloading the file at a time. So, if you have trouble getting the file to download, you may want to try at a later time as someone may already be downloading it when you tried to do so.

That's all for now.

Enjoy life and keep increasing your knowledge of Photoshop!
