Thank you so much! I might try the trial version of the PSP 2018 just to see if I might like it. I really like the way it looks on your screen shots. The bigger icons would be kinder to my aging eyes!!May 21, 2018 at 7:09 pm #18895CasselKeymaster
Annette, although PSP2018 does have the option of larger icons, I also set up my monitor to a very low resolution in order to display the program better for viewers.May 21, 2018 at 8:51 pm #18898redradarParticipant

Day 2: This was a tough one because we are having thunderstorms and I have a huge sinus headache! I bought a cat tree for my Heidi and my 11 yr old grandson assembled it for me. Heidi loves her tree and sleeps in it most of the day.
I love what everyone is doing and I keep looking forward to seeing your new pages.

Well this is my second double take page. My theme is summer/winter. Enjoyed doing it the photos used were from my pc but originally snagged from the web. Hugs……Annie TMay 21, 2018 at 11:08 pm #18904
Very nice Rae, job well done. Hugs……Annie TMay 22, 2018 at 1:02 am #18908Jan WilsonParticipant
Finished my Day 1 Double Take page 2 with my Australian Bird Theme photos. I have so many photos I have taken over the years of birds I see and have seen around my area, I stuck to the most familiar first.
Thanks for the comments. I have looked at your work too and everyone is individually unique – very enjoyable.
For page two I have some baby Lorikeets who are so sweet when young, some Kookaburra young with a parent or Aunt, and a young Magpie, these babies are the racket makers when they beg for food from their parents. EnjoyMay 22, 2018 at 1:51 am #18909
Hi … needing just a little help please. When I upload my image I have resized in psp down to 600 pixels as requested. This makes the image very small and not crystal clear. I have noticed that clicking on the link beside the pictures that others have posted it goes to another page where the images show up a beautiful size. Any tips for me with this as I have noticed that the text on my 2nd double take is barely recognizable. Thanks!May 22, 2018 at 3:03 am #18912Marlene LinghamParticipant
What wonderful work everyone is doing! I love your birds Jan, we don’t get parrots in our garden, only a few Galahs, but we have been lucky enough to have a visit from a Wedgetailed Eagle and a Goshawk – unfortunately they don’t hang around long enough for photos!
Annie your flowers were beautiful.
I struggled to think of something for this one, I have zoo photos but I didn’t want to do the same as Cassel and the shape of the template was difficult for me. Then I remembered some of the interesting statues and other art work I have seen in my travels and came up with these 2 pages. I couldn’t resist the “Loaded Dog” photo so changed the template to suit. The background colours were from the Snake Gully Emu, and I added a grass texture to the lighter one.May 22, 2018 at 4:58 am #18913CristinaParticipant
Each and everyone, you all made amazing layouts. I am very late and didn’t start to do anything, but I am loving to see all these creative pages.May 22, 2018 at 5:55 am #18914
Oh aren’t these just amazing Marlene, love your work and thanks for your comment on mine. This is a good challenge and I am having some fun with it. What will Cassel have for us tomorrow? 🙂 Hugs……Annie TMay 22, 2018 at 6:07 am #18915CasselKeymaster
Annie, are you resizing the whole double page to 600 pixels or each individual one? If you are putting both together, try resizing to 1200 pixels instead. Also, I find that sometimes, it gives better results to save a full-size copy in jpg format and resize that jpg image instead of the pspimage. And if it still does not seem to give a good result, add a little sharpness with Adjust > Sharpen > Sharpen. Remember that you are going from 7200 pixels to 600 pixels, so there are some lost details.May 22, 2018 at 7:04 am #18916
Thanks Cassel. That is exactly what I was doing … putting it all together in psp and then resizing to 600 pixels. I will resize to 1200 pixels for the next one and make sure it is properly sharpened. Loving the challenge, thank you. Hugs……Annie TMay 22, 2018 at 11:33 am #18917Marie-ClaireParticipant
Hi, I registered yesterday. My theme will probably be my house pets over the years.
Thanks Cassel !May 22, 2018 at 2:29 pm #18920May 22, 2018 at 2:50 pm #18922Sheila HoggParticipant
Some really great works of art going on here and all look fab.
Here is my day 2.
Sheila xxMay 22, 2018 at 8:59 pm #18925redradarParticipant
Very nice, Sheila! I like your use of repeating elements; that also ties the two pages together.
Here’s my Day 3. I have a lot of landscape-oriented photos for this project so I had to try a slightly different layout for the second page, a horizontal picture mask instead of a vertical one. I also discovered that when I used a regular photo for the background it wasn’t wide enough to cover both pages with my tweaked layout so after much experimenting I swapped out another background photo which was shot in panorama format instead. Now I had more options when adjusting the background to show the best parts of the photo in the negative space.May 22, 2018 at 11:31 pm #18928DeLoris MusickParticipant
Day 03: My girls took me to Jacks Casino In Cinn., Oh for my birthday and Mothers Day. I had a blast! It has been years since I have been.
I’m loving all the pages I have been seeing. You gals rock!

Hello everybody, a little help please? Challenge Day 1. How can I join blocks together to put a landschape photo ?May 23, 2018 at 10:17 am #18937
I used the rectangular selection tool and outlined the two boxes inside the outer white lines, then copy and pasted into the rectangular box.May 23, 2018 at 10:17 am #18938

Thank you Rae. I just love every bodies work, very inspiring and fabulous results.
Lin, do you live near Sudeley? I live in Gloucestershire and about 20 miles from Sudeley. Lovely place and love how you used one image to fill the slats.
SheilaMay 23, 2018 at 1:36 pm #18946
My second try. Boy, do I have a lot to learn. You ladies are pros at this. Enjoying seeing everyone’s workMay 23, 2018 at 1:38 pm #18949May 23, 2018 at 1:49 pm #18953
Thank you 🙂
No, I don’t live near Sudeley, I live in North London. I went on holiday last year to Gloucestershire, we stayed in Cheltenham, and explored the local tourist places. I agree there are some beautiful places there, I loved Sudeley Castle and Bourton on water, we had a great holiday there. Now that hubby and I are retired we have time to explore more places and take photos. Looking back I wish I had taken more photos of the area. Hope to pop back there again sometime.
