Don’t Be Afraid to Cut

If you have followed my blog for very long you will have noticed that I cut a lot of my pictures.  I do that when the background is distracting to what I want the viewer to be focused on.  I also have done that when there is no purpose for the background and the paper or decorations on the page are a lot more exciting than the background of the photo.  A final reason that I cut a photo down is because the  ephemera is significant to what the page is about and the full size photo is covering up something important.  I cropped both of the photos on my layout today.  I did it for the third reason.  The certificate is important to the page.

  1. That Tim is really a dare devil. I think it’s okay to crop pictures if it doesn’t destroy the meaning. The background tells it all. Jason did sky diving once. I have a gray hair for all the things my kids did. No wonder I support the Clariol company.
