Welcome to my new blog and website. I am excited to share my latest experience of working with Photoshop Elements 15 with you!
Some of you may know me from my previous endeavors. I have been a digital scrapbook template designer since 2008. I started my own design business, "Laurie Callison's Visual Vocabulary" eight years ago. After that I became a member of the Creative Memories digital design team and was a member of their software beta testing team, working with their software developers. Following the demise of Creative Memories, Panstoria hired me to design the page layout templates that were included in Panstoria's Artisan software. I also beta tested and designed layout templates for Panstoria. In 2013 I became a Mac user and since Panstoria's software was designed for the PC, I decided to see what other options were available for digital scrapbooking. After trying just about everything available, I re-descovered Photoshop Elements.
I have been working with Adobe for the last nine months as a member of their software Prerelease Team. It has been a fun and rewarding experience! In January of 2016 I submitted a feature request to Adobe to be able to make "Frames" that you may "Click or Drag" your photos into without using clipping masks. Adobe invited me to help test and develop the new feature! I believe this is a revolutionary new development that will simplify designing digital scrapbook pages and photobooks. My "Click or Drag" templates are designed using the new "Frame Creator" feature that is new in Photoshop Elements 15. Instead of clipping photos and papers to shapes you simply either "Click" on the opening and select your .jpg or you may "Drag" your .jpg into the opening. The templates may be used in earlier versions of Photoshop Elements. (Tested in versions 13,14) Please Note: The templates do not work with the full version of Photoshop.
I am so excited about the "Click or Drag" templates that I want to share them with the world! I designed this website and blog by myself. It will evolve and new products will be added on a ongoing basis. Make sure to download the "Freebie" template and try this new concept for yourself!
