Since your photo is horizontal, and the space for the cover is vertical, you would not be able to resize it “effectively” to fit the cover BUT, you can resize the mask itself! Here is how:
- Activate the mask layer
- Activate the Pick tool. You will see handles on the edges of your canvas.
- If you want the image to be placed on top, grab the handle on the bottom center and move it upward. If you want your image to be laced at the bottom, grab the handle on the top middle and move it downward.
This will give you room, either on top or the bottom of the image, to add the year, or any other comment or decoration you might want.
That is yet, another way to customize your pages!
