Scrapping with Scripts

Hey all! LisaCP here to share some of my favorite digital scrapbooking tools. I discovered these early in my digital transition and I don’t think I can scrap without them. If you’re ready to follow along with me head on over to speedscraps and grab the Copy & Close and Supply Tracker scripts. If you’ve tried to download them in the past, no fear, Christy has graciously moved the hosting to Dropbox.

 

Here’s a little video tutorial showing how I use them in my scrapbooking workflow. Note that these are script files and will make use of an action to call the script.

Adding Subtle Filters

During the recent Scrapaneers LIVE! event (which was totally awesome!), I, along with two of my fellow Peers, was challenged to create a very specific stylized layout within an hour. An hour!!  This was like a speed scrap on steroids, but with only the finished product to work with as a guide. This month the Peers have been discussing the virtues and possibilities of filters, so I wanted to try and incorporate some combination of filters on my page. I finished up with adding just one – and I love how it came out!  Filters don’t have to result in huge changes and be, well, for want of a better phrase, “in your face.”  Adding subtle filters can have a big impact, too.

Quick Lightroom Photo Edits

It’s no secret. I love Lightroom. For years I wondered why I would ever need Lightroom if I had Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, then one day, after listening to so many people rave about it I decided to give it a try. I figured they must know what they’re talking about. It didn’t take long until I too was a huge fan of Lightroom. While I used to edit all my photos in Photoshop, now it’s a pretty rare thing to edit them that way. Now I save all the Photoshop magic for scrapping my pages. While I do edit nearly every single photo I use on a scrapbook page or that I print, I probably edit 99% of them in Lightroom. That being said, the edits I make to photos varies depending on whether I’m editing a people photo or a scenery photo. Today I thought I’d talk about the typical edits I make to non-people photos.

Adobe Camera Raw Filter

Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) is available as a smart filter in Photoshop CC. This means you can adjust your photos (even if you shoot only in JPEG!) using sliders typical of those found in Lightroom, even if you don’t have Lightroom! If you have never used this feature before, you really must give it a try. And, when used as a smart filter, the edits you make are non-destructive and completely editable. Let’s get started.
