Thanks, I love it. Yeah I'm re-using one Archie made by request. At the time I didn't have the skill to cut out the '55 Nomad image. I used to have a Nomad but not in that good of condition.

I'd just like to say that following this thread and its companion on EightForums, and looking at
all the great 'sigs', coupled with the relative success of my very 'novice' attempts, has inspired
me to get a copy of 'Photo-Shop CS2 for Dummies', and do a bit more learning/experimenting.

Previously I've used Photo-Shop/Paint-Shop Pro for photo editing purposes, but had never
actually created anything original before attempting these 'sigs'..

Nothing good enough to post yet, but watch this space......

Wenda.

Wenda you seem to have the concept of layers which is hard for people to grasp. I think you'll do well.

Wenda Welcome to the Club

I never had any interest in graphics until I started following this thread. Before I knew it I had bought Corel Draw Home and Student X6. Just wanted you to know you are not by yourself.

Wow Bob you started off in the deep end of the pool. I think Corel has been the steepest learning curve. I can do some text effects with it now, lol.

Text effects works if you know your abc's and how to spell! hehehe
Having Corel Draw Graphic Suite put me in the deep end of the pool without swimming instructions included.

Thanks for that, Britton.

Indeed, I became very disillusioned at first because I didn't understand them. But once I got
that concept, things began to fall (or be cut and pasted) into place.

I'll get there.

Keep up the good work Wenda

I know how you feel. The more you practise the better they will become


@Bob: Yes you did. Corel draw is hard to do. But keep up the good work

I had a visitor this afternoon while I was mucking around with Photo-Shop. He noticed what I
was trying to do, and also noticed that I had this thread and its counterpart in EightForums
open looking for ideas, templates and some decent logos etc.

Now, this bloke has a Diploma in networking, but as a user, his skills are, at best, average. He
mentioned that he'd always wanted to be able to use a program like PS, but that their sheer
complexity and prohibitively high cost put him off.

So I loaded up a template that I'd found on here (or maybe EightForums) and started to take
him through what I was doing. As soon as he saw me creating layers he said that was where
he'd been going wrong, and wanted me to show him how I did it.

I did so, he had a bit of a go himself, and when he left here he had a big dose of enthusiasm
and ideas, the URL of Adobe's CS2 download site, and a PDF copy of 'Photo-Shop CS2 for
Dummies' with him.

It looks like this 'Photo-Shopping' disease may be contagious...

So, well done, SevenForums, you have had a positive influence and given some good ideas
to yet another happy user.


Wenda.



**Oh, here's the quick & dirty 'sig' we knocked together as I was explaining layers to him.
It turned out so good (clean and airy, not cluttered and cramped) that I decided to modify
it slightly and actually use it on one of my forums.**
