CoffeeShop Storyboard 12 for Print or Web!

I am having so much fun designing storyboards for print or web, and today I wanted to post my newest called "Storyboard 12".  Original name, right?  ;-)    This storyboard template is 8x10 inches and can be printed or resized smaller for the web.

I used some beautiful baby images from Jill Wellington (FacebookBlog) on this storyboard.

Add your images using the clipping masks provided in Photoshop or PSE.  Group-It Action (see tutorial below) or Tutorial (add images without an action).

CoffeeShop Tutorial on Group-It Action:

If you want to quickly and painlessly add images to any layered storyboard that is a psd file with clipping masks (such as this one), you should use my Group-It action.  You can download it in this post or find it in my action download pack.

1.  Open a storyboard that has clipping mask layers.  Make sure this is the only thing you have open in Photoshop/PSE or the action won't run properly!  If you are going to post one of my larger storyboards on the web, you might want to resize it before adding your images.

Click "V" to grab your move tool, and then click on the storyboard cutout where you want to add your first image.  In this case I clicked on the large center cutout.  Run "Group-It".

2.  The action will ask you to pick out your image from your computer. I used one from Jill Wellington in this tutorial.  Press "Open".

3. The action will add the image to the storyboard and automatically group it with the cutout that you selected.  Now you can resize the image to fit by dragging the Free-Transform bars.  Photoshop users:  Hold shift while dragging to keep the proportions.  PSE users: Just drag.  If you can't see all of the bars then Ctrl-0 (that is zero) to zoom out and Ctrl-0 again if you want to zoom back in.

4.  Once you have the image placed press Enter/Return or click on the check mark to accept the changes.

5.  Continue to add images by typing "V" and clicking on the cutouts and running the action.  Easy, right?

I used photos from Jill Wellington's (FacebookBlog) on this storyboard sample.
