1 - Picture this.........
You have created a great collection of papers and elements and they are created for a 12 inch by 12 inch and 300dpi layout.
Now you want to show your kit to the world via e-mail or on the web but they are so huge!
Here is what to do.......This way you will maintain most of the detail and quality even though you are
2 - PAPERS - When you are satisfied with them - save each of them as yourpapername.jpg
I do this and then delete my paper .psp images because they are just way too big!
3 - Now you want to create a preview of your papers and you want to place all your gorgeous elements on to it as well.
4 - Open any one of your papers that are in .jpg format
Resize it from 300 dpi to 72 or 78 dpi
and change the size from 12 inches x 12 inches to 600 pixels x 600 pixels - "smart size"
5 - Now SAVE it AS yourkitnamePRV.psp
6 - Selections - select all - add a new raster layer - keep selected
7 - Open another paper and copy and paste into selection on the new layer
8 - Repeat steps 6 - 8 until you have all your papers on their own layers
9 - Selections - select none - move and rotate and position all your papers where you want them to be.
10 - ADD ELEMENTS - open one of your elements
- copy and paste as a new layer onto your preview
resize only the element layer to 17% or 20%
this will show you approximately how big your element is against your 12x12 layout
11 - continue adding your elements in this way and moving them to your liking
12 - when you are happy with your preview add your name and kit name etc to the top
13 - add a new layer "select all" and crop to selection - this will get rid of all the paper edges that went out of view whilst moving them about.
14 - Merge your layers and Save your completed preview as .jpg for posting to your blog or group
