Photobooth Photostrip tutorial and FREE TEMPLATE!
Thanks for all of the inquiries on this photostrip! I thought I would add a tutorial on how to use the Template. In the download, you will get 1 1.5×7 photostrip (best for web) AND a 5×7 template with 3 photostrips (easy printing at any store)Open up your photostrip template. For this tutorial, I will use the single strip template. Open the photos you want to place in the template. Select the first photo. Press CTRL A to select the entire photo. Now press CTRL C to copy the photo.
Now choose the Magic wand tool on the left (you may have to right click to wand tool in order to find the “magic wand tool”.
Select your template. Click on the layer named “photostrip”. Take your magic wand tool and select the top box. Only the top box should be selected.To insert the photo you already copied, go to EDIT>PASTE INTO.Notice that although the pic is large, it only shows up in that top box.Press CTRL T (transform)Put your cursor on a corner box and while holding the SHIFT key (this will keep the correct dimensions), and resize the photo to make it fit.Press ENTER to set the size.
IMPORTANT!! Keep following the steps above for each photo. Be sure that before you add each additional photo, you MUST select the “photostrip” layer.
Here is the final look of all of the layers before I flatten. Once I was done, I decided I wanted a vintagy b/w feel. So I ran a vintage b/w action to the entire strip.
This is what the 5×7 set of 3 strips will look like. To do what I did here, I inserted the photos into the first column, merged the photos into the same layer, pressed CTRL J to duplicate the column of photos and just dragged them over to the next column. It took seconds.Now, they can print these at any store and just cut them down to size.
