Quick Page and Text Adjustment Tip

Memory Verse Card #2

*Click Here for Credits*

Just thought I’d share another Bible verse quick page I made using the brag book by SMJ and Dani. I also used a notebook element from their collab kit to fill in the empty space behind the text. And here’s a little Photoshop tip for you:

Adjusting Text for Notepaper in Photoshop

Before I learned this tip I used to resize my text by trial and error, I even made separate layers for each line of text sometimes so that I could line it up on the notepaper. This way is much easier and faster. After typing your text in the selected font and size, open the “Character” window (Window>Character) to make your adjustments.   With your text selected, hover your mouse over the “Set the Leading” icon (circled in red below). The cursor will turn into a hand with arrows pointing outward from the index finger. Click and drag to the left or right to change the distance between the lines until they line up perfectly!

    I LOVE that Psalm! Beautiful layout, such a nice thing to pop over and see :)

    Oh, wow, thanks for that tip, it will be so useful. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve done each line of text separately!
    I also think the use of QP’s for bible verses is a great idea – there are many times I want to save a verse and it just takes so long to make a whole page to go with it. And I’ve acquired loads of QP’s which I would probably never use otherwise.
    You’ve definitely won a gold star today for your tips! Thank you :)

    I love all of the bible verses you use on your pages. I really wish I could do some more digital scrap booking. But I like my added textures of my own personal touches. Looks great!
