    Awesome sphere work, Nick I loved it . Grabbed the black one BTW, is it to cut down the edges after making a sphere ? In my case they always come with edges
    Quick rundown on how I get a "deep etched" (cutout/sharp edge image)

    1. Drew the image in Vector format
    2. Added all the shading/lighting
    3. Converted the image to bitmap, and added the "sphere effect"
    4. Bitmap is pretty dithered, so I need to sharpen the edges.
    5. Created a "vector" "elipse" in CorelDraw. (blue outline)
    6. Used the "intersect with" function in Corel, (this sort of cuts the image out) so now I have a "metafile" (bitmap/vector combined image) so the dithering (jaggys) is now minimalized, this also means I can put solid objects behind the image (black block)

    The beauty of doing it this way is that I can now click on image 6 and goto "edit bitmap" and I can then do colour changes, effects or whatever etc. and the image still keeps it's crisp outline.

    Great share PooMan, as far as preference, I like the unblured one a little bit better, both are great but the unblured has a nice clean, and crisp look to it, great job and I'm excited to see what you come up with next!

    Thanks,

    I am using a downloaded Windows theme of a slide show. I would like to add a few pictures to it but cannot find it. What folder do I look in?
    C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\{your theme}\Wall (or wallpaper, whatever it may be )
    Browse to this location, and add the pictures you like to add :)
    I get there but am unable to open a theme so I can add or remove pictures in the theme slide show. In other words, I want to edit the theme.

    Go to the location bordered in the snipshop, pal ! (it will be your theme name insted of soft 7) . If the theme has wallpaper slideshow, there will be a folder named "wallpaper". Put the pictures there.

    BTW, are you talking about themepack ? then the situation is different.
