Real Life Scrapped: Designer Focus

Hi there!  I am the Designer Focus over at Real Life Scrapped this week! I hope you’ll pop over to see my interview, pick up a great coupon, and browse the Real Life Scrapped site! It is a great place to network with other scrappers, and the Gallery has the most wonderful inspiration!

Tutorial (and Freebie): Using Guides and Smart Guides in Photoshop

Photoshop Guides and Smart Guides are tools which allow us to easily align shapes and/or selections. I use them quite a bit, but last week I discovered something new about them!

Read my newest tutorial, “Working with Guides and Smart Guides in Photoshop” here.

There’s also a FREEBIE at the bottom of the tutorial post!


I hope you find this tutorial helpful!
