    Can you help?

    EMOJ100

      I am using Photoshop cs6. I purchased a template for magazine advertising purposes.  The images have been taken out but there are custom designed objects (masked shapes) where I am supposed to place my images. When I attempt to place a photo into one of the shapes, using the Place Command, it does not work.  How can I place an image into one of the objects?

            Post as screen capture of the Photoshop Layers panel with the PSD template active in Photsohop.  There are many way PSD template file are made. The way one populates PSD template depend on how the PSD was designed to be populated. If you look ate my Photo Collage Toolkit you can see how one design works. http://www.mouseprints.net/old/dpr/PhotoCollageToolkit.html

              Hi,

               

               

              I have attached a screenshot of the template.

               

               

               

              The 3 customized objects at the bottom of the template are supposed to

               

              be replaced with photos.

               

               

               

              I am trying to place images inside the objects.

               

               

               

              Can you outline the steps?

               

               

               

              Thanks.

                No attachment has made it to the forum. Maybe you tried to do it through email, which won't succeed. You'll have to post via the forum website and use the camera button above the text entry panel to insert images.

                  Hi,

                   

                   

                   

                  This is regarding a PSD layered template.

                   

                   

                   

                  I did not see a place to add the screenshop for the forum.

                   

                   

                   

                  Basically, the template has 3 rather oval shapes towards

                   

                  the bottom of the template.  Images are supposed to fit inside the borders of the images.

                   

                   

                   

                  My question is:  How am I supposed to place images inside of those objects using Photoshop CS6?

                   

                   

                   

                  Thanks

                    The required steps to use that template might become evident with the screen-cap, with the full Layers Panel showing, and each element in any Layer Set twirled open. To attach the image, see this article for tips: http://forums.adobe.com/message/2643538#2643538.

                     

                    Good luck,

                      If your on a PC with Photoshop running and the template open with the layer pallet in view so all layer can be seen. Press PrtScn key on your keyboard. Then use Photoshop's menu File>New. Accept the default offer clipboard size. Use Ctrl+V paste to paste the screen capture in. Then save that document to your desktop as a jpeg file. Then post that images here using the camera icon in the edit append screen choose file on your desktop.

                        Basically, the template has 3 rather oval shapes towards

                        the bottom of the template.  Images are supposed to fit inside the borders of the images.

                        Can you tell us what kind of Layers those are – Shape Layers, regular Layers, Groups …?

                        If they are not Groups placing the image above the intended Layer and using Layer > Create Clipping Mask might suffice to get the desired effect.
