Re: How do I create a premade page with "cut outs" for photos?
sorry I didn't see this sooner. Is GIMP the only program you work with or do you have another?
To be honest, I never worked w/GIMP before. I usually use Photoshop Elements.
The premade pages, or quick pages, are fun to make. Make a digiscrap page, usually w/a frame.
I think what I do is after I finished designing my layout & added all the drop shadows, I save it & flatten it. That is merger all the layers together. Then I use a cutting tool to cut out the middle of the frame. Save it as a .png file.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
Also, it helps when you first open a blank page to start your layout, have the background be transparent.
I'll try to check out GIMP next week. hope this helps.
I think there are some GIMP tutorials in the forum.
