MDS 113 Photos in Punches

Most of us rarely ever put a photo into any other shape than a rectangle or square.  And while it’s fun to fill your punches with bright colors or Designer Series Papers, did you know that you can fill any punch shape with a photo in MDS?

There is a Photos in Punches Challenge on Kimberly and Heather’s Facebook page this week.  I submitted this page. - I am waiting for Jackie to do the journaling.
Here is what you do:

1) Add the punch to your page.

2) Use the "Paper Fill" Option from the Design Center.

3) After you have selected a paper (it doesn't matter which one) double click on the punch on the page and zoom in on the paper to make sure it fills your punch.

4) From the Design Center click on ‘Fill with Photo’!   Your folder of photos comes. Choose your photo.

5) You can then zoom in on a particular area of the photo and/or move the photo within the punch window until you have it as you like it, then click "Okay".

Before putting your photos in the punch, get rid of any red eye – there is a button for that in MDS too.  I thought I could do it after, however, even tho you have replaced the paper with a photo, the program only recognizes it as a punch, not a photo.  I didn’t want to re-do the page, so these pictures have a bit of red eye!

I posted this page last March, which works for putting a photo in a punch also.  Now it has got a lot simpler - all you have to do is click on the ‘Fill with Photo’ button!

Here is the page before adding photos
