Thanks for the great tutorial TB!!

So it turned out to be harder to come up with a magazine title, and teasers than it was to choose a photo. :lol:

I changed the photo.

DSD Tutorial: Turn Your Photo Into A Magazine Cover
Day 4 FINAL DAY

Every magazine now has a barcode.

If you have one in your stash, GREAT!

If you need to make one, here's what to do:

1. Start with a 5 x 3 white 300 resolution rectangular file. (It will be too big, but better to make one that can be used for future projects)

2. Add a new layer. Name it Lines

3. Make sure black is the foreground color.

4. With a small, hard brush, begin your line at the top.
While holding down your Shift key, draw a straight line all the way down.

Don't worry that the lines you draw are across the entire length of the page, we'll fix it later.

5. Vary the brush size and continue to draw straight lines. (Remember to hold the Shift key down to keep the lines straight)

Here's what mine looks like so far:

6. When you are finished drawing the straight lines, get your rectangular marquee from the tool box.

7. Place your cursor around the portion of the bar code you want.

8. CTL J to copy it to a new layer. Name it Barcode

9. Turn off the Lines layer.

10. Move the Barcode layer to where you want it, leaving some space for the numbers we need to add under it.

11. Add a new layer. Name it Numbers

12. Get your text tool and with Times New Roman font, type some numbers under the barcode lines.

13. Save your layered file.

14. When you are satisfied with your barcode image, flatten it and drag it to your magazine cover.

15. Turn the barcode layer into a Smart Object then resize it and place it where you want it.

There you have it! Your awesome magazine cover!

Here is my final magazine cover. I used some of Elizabeth's kit elements to decorate mine.

Oops - I guess I got a bit ahead of you T, and already put a bar code on my page. :oops:

I am going to give this part of the tutorial a try though. :D
