Annie, that Locked Transparency option is something very powerful, yet most PSP users don’t even know it exists or how it can be used. I see you found another tool for colorizing. Another tool in our toolbox!
Sharon, you might want to add those details (names and date) on the layout. Who knows who will want to look at it later, and wonder who is in the photos. As for the slats, you are right: it can turn an ordinary photo into a spectacular project, but I would say that your starting image was far from “ordinary”.
Mireille, another way to use existing tools to create something different. Such a versatile program!
Shirley, I love the birds overlay!
