Tutorial for Picture GLOBE in PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS
 
I made this album cover using a tutorial I found here. That tutorial is buried in another thread that many might not think of looking into for these instructions, so I'm providing that link here. http://www.mousescrappers.com/forums...1&postcount=16 These original instructions were provided by hickman4638 and I give many thanks to him for this. I did have one issue with these instructions and I will provide my fix for it.:

I found that when I did step 2 for the reflection instructions, Both Globes would flip. When I would try to turn ONE back around, my picture strips would not line up properly. For some reason my PSE9 would not let me flip just one layer. SO HERE IS WHAT I DID: After step 6 in the first set of instructions, SAVE the Globe as a separate file. PROCEED to step 2 of the Reflection instructions, skipping step one. After you flip this globe, ADD in the previous saved one and postion as you wish :) I hope this step is helpful :) Step 5 I did not need to use as my version of PSE actually does have the layer mask function.

Also, here is a link to the Grid I made to put the pictures into in the first step. This ready made grid may help save some time Grid template.psd

Thank you so much for sharing all of this information! I know others will definitely appreciate your help also.

Can someone test my link to the Grid template? Let me know if this one is working. I've had one report from one I posted elsewhere that they were being blocked from my 4shared and I don't know why. :)

I was able to download it. Thank you for taking the time to make this and share it with us. :)

Nanie Scrapper 06-01-2012 10:09 AM

I had no problems with 4-Shared either. Downloaded fine.

Great template - but need help!
 
Hello - I just got back from Disney on Friday. I'd seen this globe idea scrap-lifted before and wanted to do the same. I was delighted to find the template and instructions and have spent a lot of the day working on it. I've gotten to the creation of the sphere step and have hit a glitch.

I created the sphere 10x10 as per suggestion, but when I try and create a 12x12 background so that I can position the globe and create the reflection, the background only comes up 10x10 also. Even when I open a new docutment and specify 12x12 dimensions. Grrr. Any ideas how to correct?

I am using PSE 11. Help greatly appreciated

I can imagine how frustrating that is. When I'm done work, I'll follow my own instructions and make a Globe from our last trip and see at what point you are getting stuck. I'll post here what I can figure out for you. It seems I recall saving the the globe as a png or jpeg before inserting it onto my background page. I haven't made one in over a year, so need to start from scratch to refresh my memory. :) Rest assured, if someone doesn't answer you sooner than me, I will definately post an answer :thumbsup:

JustTJ 01-13-2014 03:27 PM

Robin, I just made a new globe, and mine is working out fine. SOOOO I wonder if you are adding a 12x12 backround TO the Globe rather than adding the globe TO a 12x12 background. Is your globe currently a globe on a transparent background so that you see the little grey and white squares of the "essentially no background" around the globe? Thats the way it should be. SO then, you need to open a new file with your 12x12 background, drag and drop the globe onto that back ground. You should then be able to resize the globe to any size you want without the background size changing. But first you want to pull in a copy of the globe that you should have saved in another file under a different name (so that you have one png globe saved as GLOBE 1 and the other saved as GLOBE 2, or something like that). One of those globes is to be flipped vertically. When you've dragged and dropped both onto your background, resize both at the same time so they remain the same size. Then repostion them as you want :) Let me know if this was helpful in any way. :)

When are you headed my way for those private PS lessons? :)

LOL, I'm no expert, but have learned a lot :) If you are serious about some lessons though, I'm up for that. We can do that via SKYPE if you have or install skype, then it's live chat and instructions :)

robinsk@mac.com 01-13-2014 06:23 PM

Thank you!
 
I did what you said aNd it worked! Thanks so much . I should have thought of that myself. Now into the layer masks - I noticed PSE 11 has these, but I have never used. I can download the ones you linked but wondering if u have a newer version of PSE now and if these do what I need then to? I've only been using PSE since May so I'm a beginner.

If you have PSE 11 you should not need to download them, you should just be able to use them as instructed :) Thanks for bringing up this issue as I had lost those tools and didn't know I had lost them. We had reformatted my computer and thus had to reinstall PSE, but never ever thought that all the tools I had downloaded would disappear and also need reinstalling. I was wondering why my layer masks weren't working as they previously had LOL. Now that fixed my problem too :) So glad you had the problem afterall!

Would this be something you could explain to several people at once in our chatroom? It would be a great excuse to have a chat :)

Oh my, hmmm maybe. The way I would envision it is to pick a sample of one of my pages, and use that to show everyone how to build that, make a page like that. Let me practice here after my vacation and perhaps we can set something up for MARCH? :thumbsup:

That would be great! Just write me either here or PM when you have time to put something together (I'm juggling so many thoughts that I forget individual things)... March would be perfect. http://www.mousescrappers.com/forums...s/heart_16.png :flowers:http://www.mousescrappers.com/forums...s/heart_16.png

Hi - thankyou for the wonderful template. I've just put 49 fabulous pictures into the template, and I can't turn it into a sphere. Do you have a hint for what to do next?
I tried to do the sphere thing when I had put 1/2 the pictures in, and it worked. Now I have finished, the 'spherize' option has gone.
I hope someone can help me.
