View Full Version : ISO - CS3 scrapping tuts
08-17-2009, 11:55 PM
I am having trouble and its really starting to frustrate me :lol
I need a good tut or 2 on how to scrap in CS3. I have a few and they say to open up your 12x12 transparent page. Open up what you want to use and you just drag it to you 12x12 page.
Yes ok I did that and it worked but my gosh I cant get it to fit. The backgrounds are too big!
That brings me to my next problem. I dont know how to resize make an element once I put it on my page.
I am use to PSP but I dont have it anymore.

We have a CS introductory class at Digital Scrapbooking Classes. It is very step by step and uses lots of screen shots and everything so it is very easy to follow. It takes you through an introduction to the program and then walks you through creating a couple of layouts.

To resize hit CTRL+T and you can resize it then click the tick up top on the toolbar to finish or just double click the element you are resizing.
Holding the shift key while you resize will keep the ratio right and not let it get all weird looking.

Thanks Flergs. I wondering about keeping the ratio right when resizing. Holding the shift key works perfectly :)

Go to ScrapBook Bytes. They have a ton of free, very well written tutorials. Some are very old so they may work with CS3 but there are a lot so you will find something that you can use.:clap

No worries mate you can also click this option instead of hitting CTRL+T
Another good tip for PS is in your layers palette. Right click the layer thumbnail and choose 'Large thumnail' and also 'clip thumbnail to layer bounds'. Makes it so much easier to see whats what in the layers palette.

Yeah I found that and ticked it. It works better for me that way :)
Thanks for all the tips. My brain gets all jumbled when trying to learn a new program lol

Do you have the resolution of the document set to 300 dpi?
I think Photoshop may have the default set to 72 dpi which is only for web viewing....
just a thought.

Yeah its at 300 :)
