    Thanks, Carole! About your question, yes, it has been about the same people, my husband, and I. 🙂 And I learned from you to hide the faces on a post years ago (Effects>Distortion Effects>Pixelate).

    It has been a joy to come here and see all the amazing and creative work posted daily. Each one, in her/his style, created beautiful layouts. Congrats to Everyone!

    Here is my Project #5

    The flower and papers are from the “WeLoveSummer” kit by Palvinka.

    Carole, like always, I had lots of fun participating in this challenge. It is an opportunity to go over techniques I might forget if I don’t practice over and over. Thank you!

    Dear Cassel

    I have learned a number of things during the bootcamp such as:

    – the constraints of trying to resize a file in which I have put text within a selection,

    – the adding of drop shadows in appropriate places to give a feeling to the final image

    – the manipulation of text to make interesting titles and

    the use of Guides and the Snap-to-guide feature

     

    I was also pleased to browse through your Blogs and Scripts.

    I found the “Open As Layer” script and used it extensively during this bootcamp.

    Mireille, as-tu inclus des ombres dans le projet #4? Si oui, il est possible qu’elles aient besoin d’être plus prononcées à cause du fond qui est foncé. Ça semble être le seul projet où les ombres sont soit manquantes ou trop discrètes.

    Cristina, yes, I had a blog post about different ways to hide faces. Pixelating is one way, but there are others!

    Glenson, I am glad you learned those tips. This program is so powerful that most people don’t even explore it outside of what they just need. Yet, sometimes, other tools or settings could make those processes faster or simpler!

    Well finally! It has taken me a bit to get this project completed. I am having major difficulty with the text tool. Sometimes the text stays active and sometimes it does not. Sometimes I try to put in new text but end up changing the old text. Obviously I need more practice. I am learning a lot and eager to try a few things moving forward. One thing I forgot to mention on project 4 was that I was having a lot of trouble getting the white frame to ‘fill in.’ I ended up having to change the tolerance level much higher to cover over the pine boughs. Took me a bit to figure that out. On to project 5 – in retrospect, probably should have used a plain paper instead of the print, but it was so pretty. It meant that I was not able to get a good contrasting colour so I used black and increased the reach of the shadow. I know that we could manipulate the 4 hexagons, but I will have to go back and see if you can change the size of the hexagons. Do you have to change one and then all the others or is there a short cut for that? Last question, I would like to print my creations, is there something special that I need to do? Save as a particular size, type, etc.? I would like to print on photo paper – 8.5 x 11 and put a frame around it if possible. Any guidance would be appreciated.

    In closing, I have enjoyed this session and learned an awful lot. It has also shown me that there is so much more to learn. The creativity of all the participants has been incredible. I look at the finished products and say – that was neat, I should have done that, how did they do that, where did they get those cool elements.

    Thanks so much Carole and all participants.

    Stay safe and keep creating!

    Marica, no, there is no way to resize one element and have all of the other ones follow suit. It could be a great suggestion to send to Corel. I tested to see if several layers being selected, one could resize only those selected layers but it does not seem to work; it only resizes one of the selected layers. Too bad.

    For the white frame, it is a problem with the Fill tool. One thing I didn’t think of explaining in the video is to set the Match mode to None. If it is set once, it should stay there, and the tool will work as you expect.

    As for printing, you can use a photo paper although unless you have an extra-wide printer, you would have to size the pages down to 8×8 (instead of 12×12). There are also some online print shops that can print full-size too. You can find some links in the Resources > Outside resources section of the Campus. Just make sure you keep a full-size .pspimage version of your page, just in case, then save as .jpg with the highest quality (lowest compression). That is the format you would want to send to a print shop. If you do it from home, I guess you can always use the File > Print Layout and print directly from PSP.

    Allo Carole,

    Tu as raison j’avais complètement oubliée les ombres.  J’ai corrigé et remis le bon montage.

    Merci

    In California central valley, spring brings out blossoms of many orchards with varying colorful blooms.  These are almond blossoms.

    I guess it is better late than never.  This is one of my favorite places in the US.  I live about 2 hrs away and have hiked and backpacked in the park several years ago.  It is the most visited Nat’l Parks which causes over crowding and traffic problems, but it is BEAUTIFUL.  I am not a “fancy things” person so kept the design simple.
