CoffeeShop Box in Box Storyboard Template!


Because of your generous donations and support of my affiliates I am able to keep everything free at CoffeeShop. If I were back working in a science research lab I wouldn't have the time or energy to play. :-) So thanks for keeping me at home with the boys on my computer playing and out of the windowless sometimes dangerous lab!!!

Here is a new CoffeeShop Storyboard template, CoffeeShop Box in Box. This is a 12x12, 300 dpi psd template (you must open it in Photoshop Elements or Photoshop) that has clipping masks (please read my tutorial here if you don't know to use them, they are EASY!). I did not include a jpg with this zipped file as it would not work well with this type of storyboard.

The small images have frames (they are on their own layer and named "frames") and you can select them with the magic wand to change their color from white to something matching your images or delete them. Make sure you drag your photos ABOVE the clipping mask and not the frame layer before grouping. And if you can't see your image after grouping it with your clipping mask, simply Ctrl-T (free transform) and you will see where your image went and hid and you can move it and adjust it to size. You can also fill the little boxes with colors and text instead of images if you like. Don't forget, you can also Image, Rotate, Flip horizontally to have the little boxes on the left instead of the right!

I have a more actions, presets, storyboards, and tutorials heading your way this July. And thanks for all of your kind comments and generous donations!

Thank you for this simply beautiful and unique storyboard. My daughter will be a senior next year and I think this will be a great one to use with some of her senior session photos.

I have what may be a very silly question:
If I wanted to print larger, say 20x20 instead of 12x12, would it still work okay do you think? I would suspect if I simply "resize" the photo in PSE and keep it 300 dpi that it should print okay?

Thank you SO much for these amazing storyboards Rita -- you do such a great job!

Rita,
I am a teacher and photographer "on the side." I have taught myself how to use photoshop and found that I am often frustrated and overwhelmed. I somehow stumbled upon your website and was blown away. The art you create is stunning. You can even make a locust look beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing your creations. I can't wait to donate to your ongoing creativity. Amazing!

Crystal McLouth said...

I LOVE these storyboards. With this one.. is there an optional layout to have 4 side photos? or do you have one like it? Thanks Again for everything you do!!!!!

A very good morning from Scotland!

I would like to take a minute to say a huge thank you to you for your kindness and hard work.

I have retired and now have time to play and being a novice your help here will make me be able to transform my quick snaps into something very special.

Thank you
Cathy
