1776...? :?

Edited to add that having been enlightened as to the sig. of the above, I don't think there are grudges on this side of the Pond. History taught at school always seemed on the side of fairness and justice.

I tried and clearly there is a grudge there somewhere. (In fact I wonder if it is a browser setting - I re-uploaded a few cards in the other deck, when they were too big for some browsers to allow....)

It is worth lookin' at, too.  really neat cards coming in. 

ok, i talked to the printer, and if we print it one one sheet, and they don't cut it, the cost isn't bad at all.  the problem is that it's larger than a standard shipping envelope and it'd need to be shipped in a tube and that would make shipping really expensive.  another option is to side it down to fit in a flat envelope, but the individual cards would be small (1.5 x 2.7 inches).  another option is to have them printed as individual cards and the printer cut them, but then they get more expenisive.  I kinda like the small idea because I'd like one cut and one uncut.  what do ya'll think?

Thanks, Sherry!  I can see them now on the master sheet.

Re: Size, I would go along with what other people want on this.  I liked the idea of a set of cards big enough to see (for instance the wording on the Sun; would that get lost in such a small size?).  But I also like the uncut sheet idea.

Love this project!

How so? I'm viewing it on the same monitor whether in Photoshop or here...:?

I think it's something to do with CMYK.

Yes, it's best to convert to RGB when uploading to the web (specifically sRGB).

Depending on what version of Photoshop you're using, under the View menu you'll find Proof Setup and Proof Colors items that will allow you to see what a file is going to look like when viewed under different scenarios.

Funny, I can see the original file now in Pen's post. But not the copied files in Gregory's and Debra's Post. Dunno what is going on? :qq:f

But anyway, I can see it now and it is lovely.

Oh, maybe that is why I can see it now. Maybe my computer just didn't like the CMYK file or something.  Anyway, great work. :ro

January 30, 2012 is the absolute deadline.  but many are coming in earlier, so it'd be nice to be done sooner.

Hello


Duh. I need Photoshop assistance please. How do I layer Skad's lines over the image I created for The World. In other words i need the lines to show and the white background to be transparent.

Thanx
Susi

It's a little weird and doesn't behave the way you'd expect. I did mine ages ago, but if I remember rightly, the lines are not on the layer you'd expect them to be on, but on the other layer, which does have a transparent background. I had to play around a bit - I'd be more helpful if I could remember exactly what I did...

I think Gregory knows a lot about how to do that kind of stuff. For her collages, I think she usually uses the transparant overlays. Mind you, I don't know if she uses Photoshop Assistent. I have Photoshop elements myself (used to have an old Photoshop) and I am still trying to work it out how it works, so I am afraid I can't be of much help at the moment.

I've had a look at my final psd  file, and it appears that the lines are on the layer named 'fool'. If you arrange the layers so that the the fool layer is above the grid, you can paste your image/working layer between the two (over the grid) and it should work.

I do indeed use Photoshop, and I do indeed know how to do that, if someone wants to know.

I did a card, though was going to edit it, but I was just away and took the PERFECT photo, so - it's pending again - I'll have it up in a day or two. Disregard the one skad posted !!!!!

Let me know what else I need - it would be simple to adjust if this is wrong .. I save everything...please let me know

Thanks!

I love the image and the way you made it fit - feel sure Sherry can overlay the lines more precisely !

And congrats on knocking over this forum - it dropped dead right after you posted your card !!!

I will try and do my (minor) tweak on mine after Sunday when I put Him on a plane !

Just one of the services I provide !

FWIW - I still need to figure out how to use my photoshop to get the sky right - I can't make it blend. I had to crop a small bit and paste it to fill in the top and it is making me nuts since all I notice is the 'mistake'. Someday I will actually read the photoshop help and have a clue LOL -

I will be working on this over the weekend ...

Now we need to see if Sherry needs a higher res version ?

PS what you need to use to do that is the "healing brush" - looks like a bandaid !!! It toggles from the patch one - which looks like - well, a patch !!!!

Sumada graciously pasted my Empress Card two messages below because I could not remember how to copy an image into my own post - thank you!! :ok I've deleted the PDF attachment I included earlier.

The lines on my particular template reminded me of a pregnant woman's profile, so I searched for an image that would fit exactly right into that lower left area. The flowing water was created & twisted with a bunch of filters & effects in Photoshop & the background is a muted image of an ultrasound, recolored for a more watery effect than in a typical ultrasound image.

I received written permission from Rachel, the photographer who took the photo of the pregnant woman (website: pregnancyportraits.net). I cropped and blurred the image considerably in Photoshop, but I still felt compelled to ask permission to use it.
