Using Photoshop Elements
1. Check the counselor’s web site for a scan of the scholarship form. (Usually it is a .pdf)
2. Download the scholarship file to your desktop.
3. Go to the applications folder in the hard drive and find Adobe Photoshop Elements
4. Open a new file in photoshop.
5. Size the file as 8 ½ by 11
6. Go the file menu and then click place
7. Locate the pdf file on the desktop. It might take a moment to place, be patient. (Note: it is often easier to have a separate file for each page of the scholarship. They will print easier when they are done also.)
8. You might want to flatten the image. (Note: keep in mind that you can’t improve a poorly scanned item for clarity. You can straighten it, but you can’t improve the dots per inch or pixilation.)
9. Create a new layer to type on top of the scholarship (like a clear transparency over the form).
10. Click the typing tool and then click above the location where you want to type.
11. Be sure to save periodically so you don’t lose any work.
