You can always refer to the sample for placement of anything!
On the template Delete copyright info and delete both star layers.
copy and paste paper 2 and drag to bottom layer and add your mask, merge group.
select the center rectangle, selections, float, defloat, invert, copy and paste paper 1. Hit
delete on your keyboard. Do the same thing to the other 2 rectangles. Delete all the grey
rectangles. I added a gradient glow to all the rectangles, but if you do not have Eyecandy
4000, just selections, float, defloat, modify by 2, add new raster layer and flood fill with black.
Drag below the name and add dropshadow.
Copy and paste the drapes and adjust over center rectangle. Copy and paste the piano, don't
forget to add the dropshadow as you go.
Copy and paste the Medi_hollygolightly4. From here, just look at the sample and use it as an
example on where to place the elements.
Crop and resize to your liking, I resized to 500. Make sure DPI is 72.
Now add your name and copyright info. Merge visible and save! you're done! Simple and easy.
I would love to see what you made!
