I received several questions on how I take my pictures and what program I use to edit them. I thought I address it here on my blog.
I own a Canon Digital Rebel T1i.
I love it. I am not that great taking pictures, but with this camera, even my photos look good.
I use Adobe Photoshop Elements 8.o to edit my photos.
The frame inside my images is called recessed frame. You can find it under Special Effects – Photo Effects -Frame.
The white frame around the image is called heavy noise. You can find that under Special Effects – Layer Styles – Inner Glows. To change the size of your “glow”, go to Layer – Layer Style.
Photo Set up:
I always take my pictures during day time.
I position a chair in front of my window, place a white 12″ x 12″ sheet of cardstock on the seat of the chair and one on the back .
Next I arrange my card and some accessories I used to make the card on the chair and take the picture.
I set my camera settings to no flash and take the picture.
That’s it! Easy Peasy (with the right tools…). Hugs and smiles
