How to make a recipe card in Photoshop & Indesign CS6
This tutorial features me explaining how I made a recipe card with Photoshop and Indesign CS6.I look at: > Blending the layers, resizing and adjusting> Using the style eye dropper> Creating text boxes that flow> Using the dynamic link between Photoshop and IndesignThanks for watching and bear with me as it is my first ever video tutorial :-)P.S. The recipe makes a delicious relish, we made it a couple of days ago and the jars should make great prezzies (if they escape the kitchen!)If you would like to sing-a-long, the resources that I used can be found here:For the beautiful background texture:For the sweetcorn:For the peppers (I don't know where they got the original)For the onions:The recipe: 18 kernels/1.5kg sweetcorn6 peppers (green & red)6 tsp mustard seeds6 celery sticks3 garlic cloves1.5L white vinegar750g sugar3 tbsp mustard powder3 tbsp salt, 1 tsp pepper2 tsp turmeric3 tbsp cornflour3 big onions1. If using fresh husks, peel them of their leaves and silks, then remove the kernels with a sharp knife — discarding the husks,2. Combine the vinegar and sugar in a big stainless steel pan and bring the mixture slowly to the boil, stirring until the sugar melts,3. Add the corn kernels (fresh or frozen), the chopped peppers, celery, onions, garlic, mustard seeds and turmeric and return to the boil — stirring occasionally,4. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes,5. Add the salt and pepper (adding the salt earlier would make the corn tough),6. Mix the cornflour and mustard powder to a paste with a little cold water, then add it to the corn mixture stirring while you do so,7. Simmer for a further 5 minutes,8. Decant into sterilised jars, cool and seal.
