Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial- Creating a Striped Pattern

(Tutorial written for Photoshop 6.0 and higher)

Striped patterns are very easy to make and fun to use in digital scrapbooking projects. This tutorial will give you an easy way to make a simple striped background for your digital scrapbook projects.

Opening a new file

 

This is easy. Click on File >> Then New

Choose the size of your file

 

Set the size of your new file to be 7.5 x 10 inches. Set the resolution to 200 (or higher). Choose white as your background (or you can choose an off-white color).

Select the width and height of your file. You can choose inches or pixels. For print graphics it is sometimes easier to work with inches.

Select the resolution. For print graphics, the higher the resolution the better the quality (and the larger the file). A resolution of 200 is good for print graphics. A resolution of 72 is good for web graphics.

200 resolution is the same as 200 dpi (dots per inch)

View Grid

 

You will want to use a grid to space your lines evenly. To view the grid select view. Then show>>grid.

Adjust the size of your grid

Adjust the size of your grid. Select Edit>>Preferences>>Guides, Grids, & Slices

Set the size of your grid. We set our pixels to 50 and subdivisions to 1.
