Rule of Thirds

Most of you that use a camera know all about the rule of thirds. For those who don't take a read at Digital Photography School's article.

But let's say you have a picture you want to use that is somewhat bland and doesn't fall into the rule of thirds.

What can you do? Crop it, of course. But here's where PSP makes it interesting. First select your crop tool. Now click on the tiled display grid button on the left.

Now you have a display grid to use when making your photo fit the thirds rule.

In my illustration, I have placed the top grid along her eyes and the left grid along the center of her body.

Now I have a visually appealing picture to use in a layout.

And the finished layout:
