For LOVE Our Designers I created this page using i am what i am by Allison Pennington. @Heidi Nicole asked for a tutorial for this page. This is not an outside filter - you only have to do some steps in Photoshop. So, let’s start. Open a solid paper. Use a photo that fills the whole page. It must be black and white. If you use a colored one go to Image -> Adjustments -> Desaturate or use shitft+cmd+U (Mac) or shift+strg+U (Windows) Choose the photo layer in your layer palette - right click on your mouse and "Convert to Smart Object" Then go to Image -> Adjustments -> Threshold. You will get this window. You can change the Threshold Level if you want. Now your photo is really only black and white. In your layer palette double click on your photo. You will get the Layer Style window. In the middle at the bottom you see Blend if Gray. Choose „This Layer“. You see two little arrows. Click on the right one and move it to the value 254. (The white on your photo is not visible any longer.) You can test it by making the background invisible. The next step is very important! Create a new group in your layer palette and make sure that your photo is in this group. Make sure you've selected the group in the layer palette. Now go to File -> Place Embedded (a window will open) and can choose a paper - I decided to use a patterned one. Click the alt key on your keyboard and click on the line between the patterned paper and the group in your layer palette. Your layer palette should look like this and your layout like this The next step is optional. For my patterned paper I lowered the opacity to 70%. And now you can add your elements, your word art etc. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope I did not forget anything. Hope you enjoy it.
