Rule Of Thirds

Cropping photos using the "Rule of Thirds" makes photographs seem more appealing, interesting, and exciting. It is a technique that can be used not only when taking photographs, but also back home when prepping photos for use in scrapbooking layouts.

There is a great tip on Scrappers Guide that describes how to simply apply a grid already available in Adobe Photoshop or Photoshop Elements to help you line up the objects in your photo to create an interesting dynamic by using the "Rule of thirds".

There are separate tutorials. One for Adobe Photoshop, available here: http://www.scrappersguide.com/tips_ps/thirds-ps/
and one for Photoshop Elements, available here: http://www.scrappersguide.com/tips_el/thirds/

****In other news, my wonderful husband bought me a 1TB external harddrive. How awesome is that?!!!****
