Finally we got a bit of snow! And it instantly needed to be added to the album. Obviously you can tell I don’t worry about have a story on the 9th of December be the 9th entry. I have a list of stories still to tell, but I just work on whichever one inspires me next. I decided to create a digital overlay or two for the photo, but since the Canon Selphy I use needs bleed (it cuts off a tiny bit on the edges), I deliberately created the file for it to be smaller than the actual print size by creating a new 6×4 layout and just shrinking it down first. Then I cut it out of the printed image.
I changed the color of the digital elements using Image—>Adjustments—>Hue/Saturation to better match the color of the Evening Grosbeaks for the flip side of the first photo.
Then I made up a few more labels to work on a 4×6 photo since I know I’ll be using them a lot and decided to add them to my store – they should be there now.
