On the previous page, we dealt with some simple processing for a professional look without much effort. Now, we're going to take a look at just how advanced PGE 7.0 Platinum can be, using some advanced techniques. In addition to using PGE 7.0 Platinum, we're also using Photoshop to finalize a few things. Once again, DigitalDingus will be using images from http://www.BBSPhotography.com, which specializes in portrait and wedding photography.

Advanced Techniques Of Photo/Graphic Edges 7.0 Platinum
Suppose I want a few images within one single frame. Normally, a person would think each individual image would have to be filtered with PGE 7.0 and then combined in Photoshop. While this is certainly possible, the more tedious work can be done within PGE 7.0. A few images below are examples, and then we'll combine them into one frame.
Using Photoshop's Canvas Size option, I first create a pixel defined border of one color (normally color-picked from the image itself for a better mix), then select another pixel border, this time black and much thicker. This expands on the borders and effects already created in PGE 7.0.
Photo/Graphic Edges 7.0 Platinum: Scrapbooking Goldmine
Some of you are probably already aware of what scrapbooking entails. PGE 7.0 is a goldmine for scrapbooking enthusiasts who want to add some high-quality and distinct effects to their images. Create your initial effects of images then simply open the image in your favorite scrapbook editor.
Need an example? Well, let's take what we created above, and then put the same image into PGE 7.0's Scrapbook Fun filter. Select a frame, then a background texture, and we come up with this:
This particular result might seem busy, but scrapbooking has no such word or definition. Do note, you could add images around and everywhere else in this main frame from within PGE 7.0, creating an entire scrapbook page and not just having this one image as a base.
