#9.  Duplicate your mask layer and move it to the right and down. You will see in the sample below how to place

your elements etc.  Don't forget your copyright info for your tube.

Note: I make a Brush for every copyright artist I use.. that way each time.. all I have to do is use that pre-made brush with

the artist's copy right info.. it saves time!!!!  Also I put the copyright info on a separate layer that way I can change the opacity of it.. and move it around..

you don't want people's eye going directly to the copyright info... its not suppose to stand out that much.. but just so its readable.. not

stick out like a sore thumb lol.
