PostHeaderIcon Add Papers - color - gradients to Templates

This tutorial was written by me Oct 11th 2012

This is how I use tag templates

Open template Duplicate the template close out the original

delete the credit layer and any other layers you are not going to be using

I start at the bottom and work my way up

To add papers from scrap kits stand on a template layer go to selections - select all - float - defloat copy your paper and paste as a new layer right click on the raster layer ( paper ) and select Promote selection to layer and then delete the paper you pasted - selections - select none and keep doing this until you have papers where you want them with the other template layers and be sure to delete the original template layers

If you don't want to add papers to the template layers or at least not all of them and you just want to change the color of it just go to - Adjust - Color Balance - Manual Color Correction - click on Source and use the color dropper and click on the template original color - then click on Target and put the color there you want to change the color to.

If you want to use a gradient you can achieve this from the Materials Palette - Click on the background and fill properties and choose a dark color then click on foreground and stroke properties and choose a lighter color from the same color you used or a different color then in that same window select the gradient tab and set it up how you want

Now once your gradient is all ready to go stand on the template layer you want to fill with the gradient selections - select all - float - defloat on this same layer - Layers - new raster layer and fill the new raster layer with the gradient selections select none - delete the original template layer

If you want to add borders to your template shapes such as circles, squares , stand on a template layer shape selections- select all - float - defloat - selections modify - select selection borders- select both sides - Border width - your choice - what ever works with what your creating - then add your paper to it or flood fill with color or a gradient add a new raster layer and flood fill the selection and make sure this layer is above the template layer - deselect - add noise if you like etc.

That's pretty much it xx any questions? please email me ♥
