  • Paperclips

    Hi Everyone - I'm kind of new at this and I just purchased pse5 and have been having a lot of fun with it. I'm wondering though, I see a lot of layouts with paperclips actually attached to paper - is that something you scan or is there a way to make it look like that in pse? I have some downloaded paperclips that I don't really know what to do with... thanks for any help! Jackie

    Hi jade, actually they are digital paper clips that you are seeing cropped to create a realistic look. Hope this helps.

      Go to google and do a search for tutorials for your software program..Im sure you will find exactly what you need to learn how to fix the paper clips to look like they are attached to the paper..

        You have to erase a part of the clip, the part that would be behind the paper. You could do that with PSE.

            Hi there!
            Sometimes you can buy graphics of clips with the bits already erased. One nice member on this forum gave us a few free ones a short while ago and he kindly erased the part so it looks like the clip is actually slotted over your paper, I think it was Steve Russell, have a look back in the forum, you might find it!

                Thank you all so much - I tried the eraser and it works good - I don't know why I didn't think of that... and I also found some new tutorial while I was looking for something on this and I will go see if I can find the pins Steve Russell posted.
                I'm really having a lot of fun with this and I've seen so many beautiful layout in the gallery - I hope I can do some half as good.
                Thanks again to you all.
