I’ve had a couple people ask how to use my ATC Collage Sheet Templates in the past couple weeks and I’ve written a tutorial showcasing the 1″ Circle ATC Template, but will apply to any of my ATC Templates, and really any of my Templates, or any layered PSD and/or TIF file. I’ve also had questions about the templates being used in other programs such as PSP and GIMP – as long as your software program can open layered PSD or layered TIF files you should be able to use them. You can download the tutorial here, and it was written for the 1″ circles templates in the Bundle shown below. And you can grab a test template here – a simple layered template that has a locked background layer, a grey box for images, and a text layer; if your software can modify this template then any of the larger templates (many more layers) will work for you as well. I also have one more set of the 2.5×3.5 sized templates that I want to release soon – it is the more common size, and I have more integrated into that template set so I need to look at it and get it ready for the public as opposed to just for me, but I will have that released for you soon, most likely this week! As always, let me know if you are looking for something specific or have any questions.
P.S. I have received a question about how to use the Digital Stamps and Brushes – that is a whole big can of opportunities and will try to write some more on that soon, but for a very brief answer – they can be used digitally on the normal setting or a modified layer setting such as overlay, soften, multiply, etc. to enhance digital papers and elements. Use them for invitations, blog and web design, use them for printed paper work, use them on silk screen projects, iron-on transfers, create stickers out of them… the possibilities are truly endless.
