    Hi! Can anyone recommend some cheap(or even better free) software with wedding templates for me to use. I'm shooting my neice's wedding and would like to make her a nice cd and possibly print an album.

    I'm useless with photoshop, so can't create my own. I'd like quite a variety of templates to choose from, but as I'm receiving my usual fee(ZERO) I'd like to keep cost to a minimum.

    Thanks in advance!

    Paul

    You can create your own using Photoshop or any of the image software programs. It is a simple process

    Redwood Photographic of Colchester have on line software where your prints can be added, I also believe that most professional print labs have similar software. Colin

    Thanks for the replies Smile

    Storybook Album Designer v6 looks good but it's way more than I want to pay. I've opted for a disc off Ebay for under a tenner, just hope it has what I want and that I am able to use it.

    Check out fotofusion, they have some good stuff, also the album compay you use may well have their own free stuff.

    Okay, I've received my templates disc and it seems ideal for what I want. My problem is I've no idea how to put my own pictures into place.

    When I open the PSD file, the layers section has things like clipping mask and your image. I've managed to copy and paste 1 image into one of the image spaces, but cannot select the other individual image spaces to post more pics on the same template.

    If anyone can help me with some very simple instruction, I'd be very greatfull. I'm using PS2 and really haven't got a clue what I'm doing Sad I hate being so inept, and even worse, having to ask for help, but I could play around with this software until I'm a hundred years old and still not figure out this basic technique Sad

    Please help if you can, and the more basic and step by step you can make the intruction the better, many thanks!

    Paul, Is it not just a drag n drop. I dont know what software you refer to but I'd be surprised if it was any more complcated.

    If its in PS. Open Window/Arrange and then hold down shift and just drag the image onto the template. Then by holding down shift (to preserve the format) adjust the size to suit the aperture. Colin

    Thanks Colin!

    What was confusing me(and it doesn't take much) was I thought I could drag my pics into the aperture created by the mask, and place them there, but I see now I have to drag the pics over as a separate layer, position them in the original image area and size them as appropriate.

    I know it will take me ages to sort my pics out into these templates, but thanks to you at least I've got a shot at it Smile Good job my neiece isn't getting wed 'til August Grin

    Paul, if you have your template PSD file open in PS what you need to do is open your folder of photos, and drag one over to the template, then in the layer menu on the right, select the photo and move it to where you want it to go, put it above the layer that has the aperture you want the photo to go in, right click it and select 'create clipping mask'. You may need to resize the photo, in that case select the photo's layer, hit ctrl+T then hold down the shift button and drag the corners of the photo until it is the size you want.

    Its very hard to explain without showing someone though and I'm rubbish at explaining things.
