Are you guys getting ready for the 4th of July? Or should I say getting the camera ready? I don’t know about you but I’m the type of person that can’t let a holiday pass without snapping some pictures (even if they are only taken with my phone camera)! And since holidays make such perfect photo opportunities; you’ll definitely find me behind the lens! There are so many amazing moments to capture. Whether they be of family and friends you haven’t seen in awhile, your Aunts homemade ice cream, patriotic tablescapes you’ve strategically designed, water activities like sprinklers/pools/slip-n-slides, little ones running around in diapers and bare feet, a volleyball or badminton tournament, a hula hoop competition, etc.; you’re sure to catch some great expressions like smiles, laughs, giggles, maybe even happy tears? Have I painted a pretty enough picture? No? Let me fast forward to the evening then. How about glow sticks, sparklers, cracker snaps, and FIREWORKS? Sharing some champagne with your significant other under a glowing sky? Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about! I’m getting myself all fired up for the holiday (pun intended)!
4th OF JULY PHOTO STORYBOARD TEMPLATE
With that said, I created a 2013 4th of July photo template to hold all your special memories of the day! It’s an 850 px wide .psd file that can be opened in either Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. If you are not familiar with my photo templates, they are very simple to use. Once you open the file, you’ll want to navigate to your layers toolbox (usually to the right on your workspace). Find the folder that reads “CIRCLE FRAMES” (it is the top folder). Click on the little arrow head icon to open it up. You will see a set of circle frames and layers (highlighted red) that read “PLACE YOUR PHOTO HERE”. With the PLACE YOUR PHOTO HERE layer selected, go to File / Place to find an image from your computer files. Once you’ve found one, click on the Place button! Lastly, you’ll need to resize your image to fit the circle frame. And that’s it! Easy enough right?
Did I mention, this template would be perfect for Instagram photos as well?
