Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial – Create a featured area on your photo

May 11, 2010

There are lots of different ways in which you can create a featured area on your photo to draw they eye to your focal subject in your scrapbook layout.

This digital scrapbook tutorial shows you a simple but very effective technique you can use. It gives a funky embossed effect to your focal area whilst still keeping the context of the rest of the photo.

It’s a good idea to consider using focal highlighting techniques when you have a lot of busy background in the photo. Another simple technique is to put a frame around your main subject; just laying it down on top of the photos at an angle to give a more casual look.

But here’s a way you can do something a little bit different.

This digital scrapbooking tutorial uses Photoshop Elements and if you use a different software program you may find the names of the tools and their locations will be different. But the overall principles and techniques are still the same.
