digital freebie - ps/pse storyboard templates

I've pretty much been in hibernation since the cold weather hit. Between dealing with a lingering head cold and wanting to burrow under the covers, I haven't sewn a thing in a while. Since I don't have any sewing/crafting type stuff to share, I thought I'd offer up another digital freebie in the form of storyboard templates. I created these to use for my blog posts and for photo sharing on Facebook so I just tweaked them a bit to get them ready to share with you. These *should* work in recent versions of Photoshop and Photoshop Elements - I used Photoshop CS5 to make them and gave them a quick test in PS Elements 9. Hopefully these will come in handy for you. I'm not going to do a full tutorial on how to use these. . . if some of you are interested in that, I'll consider doing another post with a step by step :)

Both templates are fully layered psd files {web resolution / 72 dpi} with built in clipping masks {I really love working with clipping masks!}. . . all you have to do is place your photos where you want them. As you can see in the screenshot below, make sure to click on the layer "place photo # here" that corresponds to the square you want the photo to show up in. Once that layer is highlighted, go to 'file', choose place, and from there open the photo you want to use. It will automatically be placed in the correct spot. Adjust the size and placement of the photo you just placed until you get it just right. Then go to the next photo layer and repeat.

The first storyboard {below} is actually sized for Facebook's new larger photo format: 960px x 630px but can be easily resized to something smaller if you want to use it for blog posts. Click here to download. 

The second storyboard is sized 700 px by 700 px. In my example below, I chose to make one of the squares a color block instead of using 4 photos. Just one of many options. Click here to download. Enjoy!


  1. Thank you so much for this! I wanted to feature three pictures of my daughter's Halloween costume the other day, and was trying to create something in PSE. And this is exactly what I needed!

  2. This is super! boy if I play around with photo stuff I'll never get sewing done. This is almost as much fun! You do both very well!!

  3. you're too awesome vanessa!!! thanks
