If you want to use a photo for a digital background, follow this recipe and it will be “A Piece of Cake”!
Open the picture onto your background in Photoshop Elements
Drag the handles on the corners to make it the same size as your background
Go to opacity and adjust it until it looks like you want it
I did a background with Cinderella’s Castle as my background and decreased the opacity to 35% and it was just right. Then, I added a storyboard three-window frame with three Disney pictures behind it from our trip. I added a Disney-looking font to the bottom with a title about our trip and the date.The storyboard frame I used was from Once Upon A Storyboard and it’s one of my favorite places to get different packs of digital storyboards for about $7 for several in a pack. Pink Ink Studios also has some that are easy to use and are usually around $4-6. Last, I added a soft drop shadow in Photoshop Elements.
