In last week’s Photoshop Friday, Lisa made a before and after video. One of the comments left was from Gretchen: “Great tutorial! I was wondering how you set up the grid on your crop tool. Would you mind explaining how that was done? Thanks!“. Well, Gretchen, ask and you shall receive!
Lisa has created a tutorial to show you how the rule of thirds grid works in Photoshop CS5 and earlier versions as well. You can watch the video here and see how she uses it on the following image:

As CM’s Photoshop expert, it’s only fitting that Lisa is the instructor for the Shooting 104: Intro to Natural Light, Processing 101: Photoshop Fundamentals for Photographers, and Processing 201: Intermediate Photoshop for Photographers workshops. Speaking of her photography journey, Lisa says, “when my son was born I became hooked on photography. I wanted to capture everything I could. When he napped, I read about photography and taught myself photoshop. My husband bought me my first DSLR in 2004 and the rest is history.” With her Canon 5d mark III and various lenses, mostly primes, she enjoys lifestyle photography with bright clean processing and natural skin tones but equally loves black and whites. Living in Vermont with her husband, two children, and black lab Lucy, Lisa loves skiing and boating. Family, friends, Starbucks, her camera and computer are among her list of must haves.
