Disappearing Background Video Tutorial
by Susie Roberts
A common problem faced by everyday photographers is that most photos taken inside the house have cluttered backgrounds. In this lesson we’ll re-focus attention on the subject by making the background disappear.

August 2014 Premier Top Pick
What stood out the most in this month’s Premier gallery was how much fun you all had with Kate Hadfield’s colorful Weekend At Home kit. The collages were beautiful, and we loved how you incorporated your photos and stories into your pages. Our top pick winner for this month is jschardt with her adorable page called, I Like to Ride Fast. Her “light bulb” moment, as she describes it, resulted in a fabulous photo extraction set onto on a collage-style background. The perspective is perfect, and I’m sure the young subject of her page will treasure it forever. Congratulations, jshardt.

Note on gallery pages: To help us make your pages look their best, we would appreciate it if you saved your layouts at a size of 700 x 700 pixels and as jpegs rather than gifs.
