Freebie: Template 01

I've created a template! The zip file contains both PSD and XCF (GIMP) formats. I only use the GIMP, so I hope the psd file works for you. I really like the GIMP, and find that I can figure out how to do most things with it. It even supports the PSD format. I've never really used photoshop, but the one think I think it probably does better is layer masking -- or I haven't really figured it out in the GIMP. My simple 'how to use' is this:
1.) Choose a layer labeled 'photo'
2.) Size and move your photo to fit in that layer.
3.) Select the 'photo' layer and right click on it and choose 'alpha to selection'.
2.) Select your picture layer.
5.) Invert the selection (Ctrl+I)
6.) Cut (Ctrl+X)
Please let me know if you have any problems using the template. Thanks in advance for leaving a comment when you download. My inspiration for this template was the layout I did for our engagement pictures.
