Downloading YouTube Videos

While we were living in Indonesia, our internet came from the school where my husband worked. There was a tower at the school and a tower on the roof of our house, and the signal was beamed from tower to tower (technology still amazes me!) It was a great setup because it meant free internet for us, but it did come with some setbacks.

The two biggest problems were that it was slow and that we had to live with the school firewall settings. The settings blocked many sites during school hours, and this included YouTube. It was frustrating at times.

And then I found a solution. Maybe this is common knowledge but it was new to me: you can download YouTube videos! And although I am back in the States with great internet, it is actually a very useful bit of knowhow. I can let the kids watch things without them having access to the internet. I can put videos on my tablet to watch in the car. I can save videos for later. It’s really handy!

First, find the video you want to download. For our example, I am using my video Making a Template Work for You.

Go up to the web address and type “ss” after the www. and before youtube.com


Then click return.


It will bring you to a screen that looks like this:

On the right you will see the download links. There is a button that says MORE. If you click that, you can see all the options you have for downloading. Choose the one you want, tell the site where to save it, and done! Now you’ll be able to watch all of your favorite youtube videos anytime you want, without an internet connection.

Lightroom Features I Love: Before & After

About two and a half years ago, I made the big switch to Lightroom for my photo editing. Up until that point, I only used Lighroom if I needed to process a lot of photos from one shoot. Lightroom’s batch processing capabilities put my open-one-photo-a-a-time Photoshop Elements to shame.

But in January 2012, I decided to take my photography to the next level and I knew that meant I needed a better workflow for my photo editing. As much as I love Photoshop Elements and believe it is a great program for both photo editing and digital scrapbooking, I had to admit that my photo and editing skills were starting to surpass what I could do in Elements. And so I made the switch.

And I couldn’t be happier. In fact, since I made the switch, EVERY PHOTO I HAVE BEYOND JANUARY 2012 IS EDITED AND READY TO BE PRINTED, SHARED, OR SCRAPPED! Lightroom just makes is SO fast and SO easy.

And so, I thought I would start a series of posts of specific features of Lightroom that I love. There are the things that make me cringe at the thought of having to ever edit any other way. These are the things I do EVERY SINGLE TIME I import photos to my computer.

They’re that good and they’re meant to be shared.

And for today…BEFORE & AFTER viewing.

I love, love, love this (I will probably say this about every feature I write about…I am quite smitten with LR!)

When you are working on a photo and you are editing away, it’s easy to forget what the photo looked like in the first place. Editing can be taken way too far and without a good-but-unprocessed photo to compare it to, it’s easy to let things get out of hand. Also, sometimes you aren’t sure what a photo needs so you need the original to compare it to. Lightroom makes it easy!

When you have a photo open in the Develop Module, all you have to do is click the small double rectangle in the bottom left corner

There is a tiny triangle just to the right of the split rectangle. If you click that, you have choices of how to view the before and after

Here are the different options (obviously, some options are better for horizontal and some for vertical)

Before/After Left/Right

Before/After Left/Right Split

Before/After Top/Bottom

Before/After Top/Bottom Split

I love looking at my before and after in order to check my editing and also to remind myself that:

1. It’s better to have a good photo out of camera than to try and fix a bad photo (like the example above).

2. Editing is powerful. I love seeing the results of my work behind the camera and with my editing program! Sometimes the results are subtle and sometimes they are intense. But either way, editing allows me to recreate a feeling in my heart…and that is powerful.

Here are some more examples where you can see just how powerful editing can be…exposure, white balance, cropping, brightness, contrast, and more!


So what about you? How do you edit your photos? Have you tried Lightroom? Do you love it?

I’m excited to welcome back Megan Turnidge to The Digi Files this month! I’ve been a fan of Megan’s since she very first started designing. I think the reason I fell in love with her designs (and still love them today) are the bright, fun colors she uses; the great patterned papers that are easy to layer and scrap with, and the great overall look of her kits! I really had fun visiting with Megan and learning about her, how she became a designer, and some great tips she has for digital scrappers! Listen below (on the site),

Name

I’m Megan (pronounced “Meeegan”) and I am a 28-year-old work-at-home mommy and wife. I’ve got 2 darling kids (one girl and one boy) and they are my inspiration! I’m a very creative person – and not just with designing and scrapping. I have a passion for photography. I love to craft and create new things. I’m usually the one bringing the handmade burp cloths to the baby showers. In the past two years, I’ve picked up a passion for making yummy things in the kitchen and I have tried countless new recipes from Pinterest in the last year. I just love making stuff – on the computer, at the sewing machine, with my crochet hooks, or in the kitchen! When I’m not busy being a mom or getting creative, I love to read mystery novels, browse Pinterest, and watch lots of Netflix.

layout

I love this cute kid, so it’s easy to love this page. I’ve barely scrapped 5 pages in the last year and a half, so I was excited to get this one done with one of my own kits.


DesignerLO

started

I was a paper scrapper as a pre-teen and teenager. Please don’t ask me to show you any of those pages. They’re pretty awful! I made my first scrapbook for a church project as a 12-year-old. After I married my husband, I dropped $100 at the scrapbook store to get started on my wedding scrapbook. About 2 weeks later, I needed more supplies and couldn’t afford it, so I knew I needed to give the digital scrapping a try.

My husband gave me Photoshop Elements for Christmas and I slowly started collecting (read: hoarding) digital freebies. It wasn’t until I became pregnant with my daughter that I actually started digital scrapping. In fact, I was so obsessed that I started scrapping quick pages for myself so I could add in baby photos once she was born.

I decided one day in the fall of 2008 – about a year and a half after I started digi scrapping – that I wanted to try my hand at design. I sold my designs at Elemental Scraps and in May of 2009, I decided to push myself and took part in the So You Think You Can Design contest at Digi Scrap Addicts. I made it to the last round and was invited to join the team at Scrap Orchard and I was home! I took a little 2 year break from designing, had a baby boy, and decided to come back to designing when he was about 10 months old.

inspired

Inspiration can strike in the most random of places. I have drawn inspiration from clothes, catalogs, TV shows, fabric, music… or even just a really great color palette.

tools

Computer: I have a 27″ iMac with 16GB RAM and a 3TB hard drive.

Program: Adobe Photoshop CC and Adobe Illustrator CC

Camera: I have the Canon 5D Mark II and a single lens – the Canon 50mm f/1.4.

Anything Else: Wacom Bamboo tablet, a wide format printer, and a Silhouette Cameo.

tipstricks

I think what’s been most useful for me in the past when I went to print my scrapbook pages, was to be really organized. If you’re not in the habit of including dates in your file names, start adding them and it will make printing books less of a headache. I keep layouts in folders by year and name them like so: year_month_day_layouttitle.jpg (ex. 2014_02_23_lovethisgirl.jpg). Then your layouts will stay sorted by date and even if you forget to put the date on the layout itself, you’ll always know

favorite

Valentine’s Day kits are my favorite! I am always super inspired when creating a lovey dovey themed kit. I love the soft mint, pink, and kraft against the pops of red.


DesFav

popular

I think Incredible You really appealed to many of my customers because the superhero theme is fun and because it has a girly twist… which I don’t see very often in superhero kits. I was inspired to create this kit because as a toddler, my daughter LOVED superheroes. The first time I let her pick out her own Halloween costume, she picked Batman (really, it was a Batgirl costume, but she insisted she was BatMAN and not Batgirl). Now my daughter is really into princesses, but I want her to always remember that she can always be her own hero.

My project has been going pretty well! I’ve been good about using my dSLR more often, but I find myself drawn to in-the-moment pictures taken with my iPhone. I especially love the photos my kids take with the photo booth app Incredibooth. They’re so casual and goofy and I love to see the shots that they take themselves.

You can see that I am about a month “behind” in my project. I have lots of photos though and I can rely on Facebook, emails, texts, the calendar, and apps like Momento to help me fill in details for each week. I’m hopeful that I’ll find some time over the summer holidays to catch up on my memory-keeping.

In terms of style, I’ve been working with more regular kits and less often with specific pocket products. I tend to gravitate towards brighter, bolder colours for my pocket albums and I like to just play with papers, making my own journal cards by layering different journal spot shapes. It’s fun to play with products and transform them to work with pocket pages. I also like using “helper” products like collage makers and layered journal card templates.

So, we’re half-way through the year, and I am still certain that pocket scrapbooking is my favourite form of memory-keeping!

How is your project going?

Making Memories: ICE COFFEE POPS

It’s no secret that I love making memories and that I love food. And that’s why combining the two is always a win at our house. Making yummy and fun food for my kids is so much a part of who I am and how I try to demonstrate my love for them.

But cooking and making fun treats for the kids doesn’t have to be hard or time consuming. Oftentimes, it can be quick and easy and oh-so-yummy!

Because it’s hot out and the kids are always asking for a snack, I decided to get a new set of popsicle makers. I haven’t been thrilled with the ones I have owned in the past and so I decided I would try for a new style. These work like a push-up and so far, I LOVE them (I got them on Amazon.) They come in a pack of six different colors (which works great for my six kids!) I like the fact that they can come with tops and can be frozen in a small space (I stuck mine upright in a plastic container). I also like the fact that they don’t drip all over the kids when they are eating.

I’ve been pinning recipes for different kinds of popsicles and once these makers arrived, it was time to try one out. We’re a coffee-loving family so it only made sense to make some ice coffee pops! And they were YUMMY.

Recipe adapted from HERE

In order to save this fun memory, I scrapped a quick page. I don’t spend hours on my pages, but I do want to make sure I preserve the memory. I grabbed one of my templates, a cute kit from Sweet Shoppe Designs, and got scrapping. In fifteen minutes, I had this:

I loved the photo that caught the wave splashing in a reflection on a tide pool. And the sun was setting, and the light was just dreamy. I love those colors, too.

Even though I’m not always entirely conscious of what I’m doing when I’m scrapping, I can often look back on a layout and spot some things that make it work. Here’s what I see about this layout:

* Central focus, but slightly off-balance to add interest
* Splats in the background imitate both the horizontal ocean surface, and the vertical movement of the wave
* Triangle of interest: the three clusters on the page. They tend to draw the eye back to the focal point, which is the reflection of the wave in the pool
* The light green of the background complements the orange glow in the photo (opposites attract!)

I never even realized most of those things as I was scrapping, except for the triangle–I always try for that.


DesignerLO

started

I have a long and varied background when it comes to art, but essentially I was teaching myself Photoshop (and later, Illustrator) by trying to make the things that I saw on layouts. I had just given birth to my son and was trapped at home speaking goo-goo language, and I thought I would go nuts if I didn’t have something to do! Also, without my income, we were totally broke and I couldn’t afford to buy anything.

I started off by designing rubber stamps and making cards, especially Asian-themed. Then, a friend of mine I knew from that realm (Julie K. in Taiwan) asked me for an opinion on a layout she’d made on the computer. I think I ended up making sort of a new quickpage for her. Then I just got deeper and deeper into it…

My first real break into the selling world of design was when Vinnie Pearce, whose CT I was on, asked me to sell in her first store, Pixel Canvas. I actually broke down and cried in front of my computer screen when I read that invitation! I was so honored–Vinnie is an amazing designer, and I couldn’t believe she would want MY stuff next to hers. It was at Pixel Canvas that I first met a whole crew of women from around the world who have ended up becoming some of my constant friends, and funnily enough, most of them still CT (or design) together. We’ve been at MScraps for almost 3 years now!

inspired

Creating is so multi-form, for me. Have you seen that little e-postcard that says something along the lines of “Being creative is like having 2,784 browser tabs open. At the same time.”? That’s kind of how it is for me. I might be sparked by an expression, a phrase; by a certain set of colors; or by an idea that’s jumped out at me from something I see around me or in a magazine. There’s inspiration everywhere! Every once in a while the well goes dry, and then I just do something else for a while. The creativity always comes back.

I don’t just do Graphic Design, although that’s my bread and butter. I also write poetry (often on my layouts), paint, draw, take pretty pictures, and make jewelry! (Just started that last venture 2 summers ago, but I have to fight to get time to do it!) Those all go into my kits eventually as well.

tools

Computer: Let’s see… I have an older computer (PC), and at the time I’m writing this (in March), I’m still running XP. But I’ll be changing over to Win7 in April, since the support for XP is running out. I have 4 gigs of RAM, but always seem to run out. I had the computer built, though, instead of getting it off the shelf, so I could get a top-notch processor (at the time). I also got 1Tb of memory, which was really outrageous for me at the time. That makes me giggle, because the latest external hard drive (Seagate EHD) I bought is 3Tb…

Speaking of which, I have SO MUCH STUFF in digital format (including massive amounts of pictures, each of which is 5-10Mb) that I’ve had to separate my stuff for a long time now.

On my C:\\ drive (the internal hard drive), I ONLY have programs. This frees up enough space to provide Photoshop with a good working space (the cache). That is also supplemented by whatever free space I have on my EHD. On my EHD, I have everything else: photos, graphic design elements, textures, papers, etc. Right now I have 1.8 Tb of material on my EHD, and 72G on my hard drive.

My mom bought me my monitor 2 Christmases ago, and I love it. It’s an HP 2511x, and it’s something like 26″ diagonally.


Program: I use the CS5.5 suite–Photoshop & Illustrator are always open at the same time when I design for scrapbooking, as I switch between them frequently. I also occasionally use Art Rage.

Camera: I have a Canon Rebel EOS T5i, with an 18-55mm lens which came with it, and that I actually find super-useful. I also have a 70-300mm zoom lens that I love for long distance or macro, and a 50mm lens that is beautiful for indoors and portraits.

Anything Else: My old and trusty Wacom tablet (Intuos 3, 8.5″ wide working area) saved me from carpal tunnel syndrome after only 3 months of rubber stamp designing. It’s really hard on you to draw with a mouse… I haven’t looked back since, and haven’t used a mouse in 10 years. In fact, I’ve learned to type while holding my stylus… *laugh*

I also have a dedicated art table covered in butcher’s paper, where I do all my splattery & doodly things. =)

Oh, and my trusty Canon CanoScan 5600F! That’s quite old, too.


tipstricks

Gosh, I have a whole set of tutorials over at Mscraps with tons of tips, but here’s one I’ve had to share recently.

The recent craze for washi tape reminds me of the vellum craze from a couple of years back. It’s really tricky to get it to look right, but the shadowing is key! Mostly, you want to avoid a big, dull grayness under the tape. Here’s what you need to do (this works for PS-CS):

  1. Place the tape where you want it.
  2. Put the shadow you want on it. It should be a fairly dark version of the color it’s lying on, and small, since it’s so close to the page.
  3. Right-click on the tape layer in the Layers Palette, and choose “create layer.” Now you have the shadow on a separate layer beneath the original tape.
  4. Take your magic wand, and click on the layer anywhere outside the tape, then invert the selection so now only the shape of the tape is selected. (You don’t want to do the normal selection shortcut, which is ctrl+click on the layer thumbnail, because that selects the transparency as well, so you’d still get shadow under/through the tape, which is what you don’t want.)
  5. Delete this selection from the shadow layer.

Ta dah, only the shadow that is around the tape now shows, and your tape is its nice, bright, original color instead of being all muddied!

This trick obviously works with anything that is translucent–tape, vellum, plastic pockets, etc. It’s even nice for lace sometimes.

favorite

Oh gosh, it’s always so hard to choose ONE favorite. I guess out of my recent-ish kits, my favorite is the High On Life Collection, because I drew a lot of cute illustrations for it, and that was really fun for me. It was inspired by the theme for the first week of this art journaling group I belong to on FB, “Up, Up, and Away.”
