Photography Tips - Part 3

Today we're adding text and clip art to our photos.  Once again, just watch the video to see how the photos/posters/headers were created.  Everything you see was done using all the free parts of Picnik.

1) Easy Peasy Collage for a Blog Header

2) Poster or Invite

Thanks for your excited comments about this photography week.  I wasn't sure if it was something you guys would like or if it would be a snoozefest.  It makes me so happy to know you're learning stuff and liking it. 

Tomorrow I'm going to give you a bunch of fun ideas for taking pictures.  I'm also going to list some great links for learning more about photography.  See you then!

I just have to say (again) that I am LOVING this series. I think you always wonder if doing basic tutorials is going to be boring or not, but I find a lot of people are just getting started in their craft (i.e. sewing, photography, ect) and seem to really love someone getting down to basics. Great job!!

Wow! Thanks for sharing all these tips and your videos are great!! I'm learning so much :)

Melissa said...

I love all the tips your sharing but I can not view the videos!! there is just a white box with a little box in the upper left coner. Can some one tell me how to get the videos on my screen?

Rhonda said...

I loved all the videos and tips! I'm so excited to start having better pictures. I would love to see that rock star room!

Boo & Koala said...

Thank you for doing this!!!! I am not sure how to add my collage to my blog though. After it's done how do I incorporate it to be my blog title? Please help...

I Am Momma - Hear Me Roar said...

To add the header just log into your blogger account, click on design, click on the area where the header is and edit it. Check the box that says use instead of title and the box that says shrink to fit. Save and head on out. That should do it. I hope that helps!
