How to Record Designer Credit Using Photoshop Elements


Record Designer Credit Using Photoshop Elements (PSE)

Recording designer credit on layouts is important for several reasons and it’s easy to do using  Photoshop Elements.   You may be wondering why it’s important.  Here are a few reasons:

  • Designers work hard creating the designs and deserve to have that acknowledged.
  • Others seeing your layout may want to purchase the kit. They’ll appreciate the information.
  • You will probably not remember later unless you keep meticulous notes.
  • It’s always right to give credit where credit is due.

How to Record Designer Credit in Photoshop Elements

Some scrapbookers keep a separate notebook, either physically or digitally, with this information in it.  But unless you’re super organized this may be difficult to find later.  Let me show you how to do it in Photoshop Elements.

As you add papers, elements, and fonts you can add the information into File Info or jot it down as you go then enter it when you’re done.  I usually do it as I go so that I don’t forget.  When you add a font it’s easy to copy/paste the font name at the same time.  When you share your layout on social media, and other places, this information will usually post when you post the layout.
