screen saver


I whipped up a little screen saver for my computer using my digital scrapbooking elements from mo jackson. If you are a digital scrapper, it's pretty easy to make a custom screen saver.

Create a new file in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. It should be 1280 x 1024 pixels wide. Select a dpi resolution of 300 or higher. Build up your layers starting with your background (I used mo's novel paperbacks)... a fairly simple background is best so you can see your icons when you're done. Don't forget to leave space on the field for your icons!

When you are done, save as a .jpeg and set it as your screen saver! Voila! Custom screen saver.

Katie was just so moved by Saucy's comment at Mrs. G's that she just had to come over for a visit.

Such a cute place Saucy has here. Katie will be back, oh, yes she will.

Golly gee, how cute. Yes, Mo's doos are the best elements ever. You can almost see Loopy becoming more beautiful in each shot.

Katie thinks that Saucy and herself stay up too late reading blogs and swilling Dr.P.

Katie is needing Dr.P right now!

The adorable header on Saucy's blog makes Katie want to try something new.

that is so sweet *sigh* makes me rethink the boring standard microsoft desktop that's still staring me in the face every morning! =)

Thanks for the mini-lesson! I actually had been wondering about that! I need to take a class in Photoshop. I have the software, but don't really know how to utilize it as well as I should.

Once again I am reminded that I really, really need to start to work with photoshop. This is fantastic!

I found your blog through Amy's and super excited about Club little house. What a wonderful place you have and such fun to visit. Love your screen saver idea.
I have been using a trial of photoshop elements, yikes it scares me. Practice makes perfect I guess. Have a great week.
