Video: How to create a basic layout


This video tutorial has been created for those of you who would like to learn how to layer photos on top of backgrounds like the example above.  Layering is one of the hardest concepts to grasp in graphics design, but I have made it as simple as possible for you to be able to learn to do it without spending money.  

In family history, we handle a lot of photos, and we have the opportunity to do a lot of sharing online and in the form of movies, slideshows, scrapbooking, and journaling just to name a few.  With the steps outlined in the two videos below, you can start making great layouts to share.

In the first video, you will be directed to download the free software, PhotoPlus, and images below.  You will also need to select a photograph to layer.  After you have completed the steps in the first video, you will be ready to create your first layout.  Please let us know if this helps you master layering.  Also be sure to "like" our page on Facebook:  Saving Stories.
