How I get my digital images ready
Before getting into that, though, I wanted to let you know a little about how I use my digital images. (you can see a walk through at the beginning of the video).
p style=”padding-left: 80px;”>All of the images from Taylormadecard4u come in a JPG format. So you just download and save them to your computer. I have a folder named “Taylormadecards4u” that I use just for the images that I get from Monica.
By double clicking on one of her images, it opens on my computed in Microsoft Photo. I think you should be able to crop the images using whatever photo viewer you are using on your computer.
3. Remove the background if needed.
If you will be layering your images, you might want to remove the background. I discovered an awesome free online app for this…. Remove.bg . You just drag and drop your image. And the app does the rest. If it doesn’t get rid of everything you want (or if it gets rid of too much), it even has an edit feature so you can manually remove what was missed. If you try it out, let me know how you like it!I try to share my crafty creations about once a week… to make sure that you never miss a blog post, be sure to sign up for my newsletter using the button below.
