2016 iNSD Tutorial: Slide Show

Fri May 06, 2016 3:01 pm

Here's a simple but useful technique for framing:

SLIDE SHOW

1. Make a new document in any size you want.
Use the resolution that you normally use for layouts

2. Make a new layer, name it Slide.

3. Change the foreground color to a light gray.

4. In the tools menu, choose the Rounded Rectangle.

6. Hold the Shift key and drag the Rounded rectangle tool to form the square shape of a photo slide.

You should see a black square in the mask and a hole in the rectangle

11. Add a Drop Shadow.

Use the settings that look good to you.

Optional: You may add some texture without losing any original data since this layer is a Smart Object. Filter/Texture

12. Grab the text tool and with the Times New Roman font and black color, create some text at the top and bottom of the slide.

13. Change the opacity of the text layer to 50%.

14. Pick a photo to use as the color slide and place it under the Slide layer.

15. Transform or trim the photo to fit inside the slide opening.

And there you have it!
