Photoshop Tip: Using Contact Sheet II to Automatically Create Art Layouts

Wow! Artist Tara Reed made a free video on how to use Photoshops contact sheet plug-in for making portfolio and tearsheet pages after she heard about it from art licensing agent Suzanne Cruise during December's Ask Suzanne Cruise teleconference. What is wonderful about this plug-in is that it automatically creates layouts of art files without having to open all the files and reformat them to fit the page. Tara's video "Photoshop Tips - Using Contact Sheets II to create art portfolios and tear sheets" has been uploaded to youtube and written instructions on how to use Contact Sheet II is on the Adobe website.

Contact Sheet II can be used for a multitude of applications such as:
1. Create pages of art for your portfolio.
2. Create comp sheets / sell sheets / tearsheets to send to manufacturers.
3. Create pages of art when filing art collections to be copyrighted by the Library of Congress.
4. Creating pages of art to catalog and keep track of your collections.

Note: The "Contact Sheet II" plug-in is already included in Photoshop CS3 but must be downloaded from Adobe for CS4 (Macintosh and Windows).
