One of the most common questions we get from customers is whether or not they can have more photos on their card template. The answer is YES! It is actually quite easy!!!

This tutorial will walk you through how to easily add more clipping masks to accomodate more photos on your card 🙂

For this tutorial I will be using Photoshop Elements. It is a similar process to using regular Photoshop!

Step 1: When you open up your card in Photoshop, select the clipping mask that you would like to duplicate in the layers panel. On your template, your clipping mask should be selected and able to resize once it is selected.

Step 2: Once your clipping mask is selected, you can use the arrows around the border to resize it according to your needs. 

Step 3: In your layers panel, you will want to select the clipping mask that you would like to duplicate and right click that layer. When the drop down menu pops up, select “Duplicate Layer” and select “OK” on the pop-up screen.

Step 4: Now you will have two clipping masks stacked on top of one another, so you will not be able to see that there are two by looking at your template. In your layers panel there will now be two clipping masks (the new one will say “copy” behind its name. Within the layers panel, select the copied clipping masking and  you will be able to use the cursor to drag the new clipping mask to its new location within your template.

Step 5: Lastly you can resize the new clipping mask to fit your needs or leave it identical to your original one. You can also continue to duplicate if you need more clipping masks. Once you have the layout that you like, just add and clip photos as usual and you are done!

Any template is versatile once you know this trick!
