New website up and running

Finally after a week of grappling with FTP uploading, flash templates etc the new joela photography website is up and running. The trail logo will be disappearing sometime in the next 24 hours and I might even remember to add key terms for web searches at some point as well.

Why not click on the title link to check it out & leave a bit of C&C?!

Quick tutorial - rounded corners in photoshop

Rounded corners can give a lovely vintage feel and be a good compliment to this type of processing, and there's an easy way achieve them...

Select the rounded rectangle tool, check that the 'paths' option is selected on the top bar and select the area of your image you want to apply the corners to.

Now open the paths palette and click on the dotted circle icon at the bottom, this will turn the shape you have drawn into a selection.

Copy the selection and paste into a new document with a transparent background colour.

You're done!

Obviously this image has been further processed, I will be posting further tutorials on adding borders and vintage processing in upcoming posts.
