Scrapping Tutorial - The Alignment Tool

Happy Saturday Everyone!! Are you all enjoying your weekend? I know that I am! And guess what - I have a fun little scrapping tutorial to share with you all today :) I hope you are excited!

So this tutorial is dedicated to aligning layers (elements, papers, alphas - you name it, you can align it). Photoshop has a wonderful one click process for aligning items along a straight line. So you can align items by the bottom edge, top edge or center.

The alignment buttons can be found in the options tool bar when the move tool is selected. (my screen shot is of PS CS2 so it maybe slightly different for the newer versions).

So how does this tool work? Make sure all the items you want aligned are selected (hold down the control key and click on each item in the layers palette). You then click on the desired alignment button. And voila! Your items are now aligned! Easy Peasy!

I use the alignment buttons quite often while scrapping to help me with my alphas, to center a background paper. Those buttons are very handy!
Alrighty - I hope you all found this tutorial helpful! Have a fantastic Saturday!
