April 18,2007 to Infinity and Beyond! ~ My PSP Work

George started me with PSP 9.
Then, he gave me the cinderella coach and
I put the background and the frame.

This is Before

This is After

Then George sent me this lighthouse
And I airbrushed the clouds and below on the ground with Color Pallete.
And added the yellow background and my name
And I framed it.
and it is Resized to 150W/H

Here is My Paint Shop Pro 9.0 Work!
From RDB Graphics Class by Pam1
And with Help from Friends:
Fawn ~ Jo ~ Beth ~ Shiela/Pam her friend ~ Cheryl And Donna!

NOTES : so I can Remember.

Remember to Selections : Selections None when your doing Text!

Layer Pallette : Duplicate
: It should say copy in pallette with background.
In the middle you should only see one image.
My Mistake was that I was looking for 2.
Layers Pallette is Fun!

Rename: Cursor over Copy in the Layer Pallette and right click,
there should be a drop down menu, click on Rename.
Change copy to Window or what ever the new name is to be.

Resizing: found under Image at the top.
Set the Width. "Type it in."
150 Width ~ 175 Width ~ 250 Width ~ 300 Width

Ants to No Ants About It.....So To Speak! LOL
Lasso ~ Add Shift ~ Feather 0 ~ Smoothing 2 ~ Checked Anti Alias
On Right picture :Move Tool ~ Click ~ Edit ~ Copy
On Left picture :Click ~ Edit ~ Paste ~ New Image Layer
Selections Invert
Move with move tool ~ Hit delete
Ants should be gone!

Reason for not resizing:
1. Tutorial wants type at a certain size,
and your words don't meet that criteria,
but mainly 2. You want others to be able to read what you have on your tags.
And variations in size helps bring attention to different parts of your graphic.

Make your Kerning NEGATIVE or
you will have to put in each word one at a time! :THAT WORKS!!!!!
