Blue Bayou

This gave me a laugh, I found The Lazy Bloggers Post Generator at AussieBloggers.com.au… what a great idea! I am sure I may find some uses for it, being a blogger and lazy, it’s made for me…

PHOTOSHOP TIP #6, #7 and #8

OK two three short and sweet ones here….

Tip #6 ~ Control>J copies the current layer. Love this one, use it regularly…

Tip #7 ~ Shift>Control>Alt>N Creates a New Layer, bypassing the New Layer Dialogue box, which can be pesky…

Tip #8 ~ or if you want the New Layer dialogue box, just hit Control>Shift>N then you can name the layer, change the blend mode, change the Opacity and change the colour of the layer in the Layers Palette all at the same time, before you even touch the New Layer….

Anything you’d like to see in these tips? Well post a comment and ask!

Have a great day :-)

LOL!! Love the Lazy Blog Post Generator. Reminds me of Mad Libs. I’m thoroughly enjoying and appreciating your PS tips and shortcuts. Of course, you ask for input on those, but I don’t know what shortcuts I need to know if I don’t know they exist. Does that make sense? Or am I talking in circles? Anyway, keep ’em coming – they’re very helpful.

I LOVE the blues in this freebie! Reminds me of the ocean. Also a perfect color for my scrapping, since I live in a house of guys. Thanks, Lee! 😀

Hugs to everyone


Holly 07.28.08 at 4:06 am

Thanks, Lee! I’ve been looking for something like this…blues that are a little more solid rather than big and/or busy patterns.

Thanks for the layer tips, too…I LOVE shortcuts!!!

Thank you for the gorgeous pack of papers – blue is my favorite color! My oldest little granddaughter’s favorite color is blue too – she always says to me “Grandma, I’m just like you ’cause we both love blue”!

Thanks also, for more helpful tips.

Thanks so much for the great PS shortcut tips. Helpful as always!
I think I am going to have to use the Lazy Bloggers Post Generator since I have gotten SO bad about posting on my blog 😉
I LOVE those blues! WOW! Perfect for those pool and other water scrapping.

You will probably think I am quite weird, but Linda Rondstatt is a favorite (even if I can’t spell her name. Loved the song Blue Bayou and she was the first thing that came to mind when I saw your papers. Thanks for such a great gift.


Nic 07.29.08 at 6:48 pm

Those blue pages are gorgeous and I’m sure they’ll showcase Quinn’s eyes beautifully. I really do need to play more with making pages. I see yours and get inspired once more. The shortcut tips are always great. Are there any for adjustment layers? I could look at past notes but I’m feeling very lazy at the moment 🙂


KAREN 07.29.08 at 7:19 pm

I absolutely love these papers! I’m actually not even a scrapbooker–I’m a teacher who loves to create fun digital creations to enhance my teaching. This one will make lovely backgrounds for my PowerPoint presentations.

Greetings from SW Georgia where it’s hot, humid and the daily downpour is approaching.

Every one of these papers is just pretty danged incredible 😉



Lisa 07.31.08 at 11:47 am

LOOOOVE the blue collection Lee… Reminds me of the page you did for me of Mitchell with his bright blue eyes!

One week to go til we have a new one to photograph!!!

Love to You, Scotty, Quinn & Bronte xxx

Hi Lee, I came over to say thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, cause it’s my first one which is very exciting! But then I had a look around your blog and I’m really impressed, especially by the design and colour schemes. I will certainly be checking back in regularly. 🙂

I love the photoshop tip! Been working on my own banner for my site and can see where these will come in handy.
