    Default Photo Embellishment.

    Thanks to Corey i made my grandaughter into an embellishment, I watched & followed your video on making your own embellishments, can't believe i did it, but it worked, little rough around the edges though.
    I used adobe photo shop elements a little different to the one you used but i got there,thanks again Corey.

    WOW! That's seriously awesome. I think it looks great personally, one cool thing about scrapping is that a little bit of "edge" makes things look homemade and I think that has a certain appeal and character you don't get with super "slick" stuff. Plus now that you've done it you will get better at it and basically be able to pick and choose how much edge you leave or don't leave. Anyhow it looks like that little tyke has come a *long* way and so have you, with Scrapbook MAX! that is anyhow. Awesome post Jojo. I don't mind making videos and stuff for people in my spare time if I know they'll be useful, so seeing your embellishment come about as a result of that video is rewarding for me.

    I agree with Corey's wise words. And I'll add "creative AND tech savvy"!

    Way to go! Looks like you've just entered a whole new dimension of scrapping possibilities... "scrapibilities"...?

    P.S. Plus - can you get a cuter embellishment than Breannah?

    I'll keep that in mind and try to post some more tutorials as time allows. I'm in the process of moving from one home to another so it might be a slow month in terms of extra stuff from me but once I get re-situated I will definitely make a priority out of getting some more video tutorials online. And of course please feel free to post tutorial requests. My main area of expertise which I can provide tutorials for is art, design, layout, Photoshop, etc.

    Jojo, you sure fooled me. I know lots of people who are great with computers who still haven't built any cool scrap pages. It's all relative. At any rate anyone who rolls up their sleeves and tries out the stuff from an online video is well on their way as far as I'm concerned. A little motivation goes a looooooong way.

    Plus Scrapbook MAX! was specifically designed so that there wouldn't be any unecessary technical challenges. That's how we plan to keep it even as it evolves with new features, etc...

    Default Thanks again Corey

    Do you know if there are any plans maybe to incorperate the same sort of editing tool(magic extraction tool) into scrapmax?
    For me i find photo shop is not so user friendly, gives me a headache

    Anyway happy moving Corey.

    Probably not any time soon. The problem there is that it's really a super complicated process behind the technology in Photoshop's extraction tools. Adobe's been working on those for years with a huge team of programmers so as designers, we're better off to use what they've created in terms of the technology. I realize it can be tricky to use Photoshop at times but it's worth it to stick with it. I can help with Photoshop questions anytime.
