Awesome Effect for your Custom Poster – Photo Scraps

If you’ve been using the Poster Maker for a while, you’ve probably noticed the ‘Erase Background’ option for photos. Apart from completely removing the background in photos, you can use the Magic or Simple erasers to give your photos cool looking edges, so that they look like they were taken from a scrapbook. We call them Photo Scraps!

The great thing about this technique is that each border will look unique! Check out the sample poster and tips for perfecting this technique below.

  • Try both the Magic eraser and Simple eraser to rub out the edges. Both these erasers will give different results based on the colors in your photo.
  • If you make a mistake while removing edges, don’t forget about the Undo eraser.
  • Give your photo a glow to make the edges stand out. Play around with the color of the glow for maximum contrast between the photo and the poster background
  • Have fun!

Tips for making a similar poster

Some tips that you’ll find helpful when designing a sports magazine style custom poster:

  • Try the ‘Erase Background’ option for your photos. Have a big photo in the middle of the magazine cover with its background erased. Give it a glow to hide any jaggy edges.
  • For prominent text, try the ‘broken text’ effect. That gives it a rugged, sporty look.
  • Apart from a large photo in the center, try making a collage of smaller photos on either side of the center photo. You can play around with the ‘Fading Edge’ effect for photos to make them blend into the background. Alternatively, you can give the photos a glow, or a border to make them stand out.
  • Look for layout ideas for magazine covers by searching for ‘sports illustrated (and the name of a sport)’ on Google Images.
  • For the complete variety of magazine cover style poster backgrounds, check out the Art Gallery page.
