    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!!

    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.

    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 T

    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.  Enjoy

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 T

    It has been a struggle for me to find both the time and the smarts to do this first page.  I hope I send it correctly.

    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.

    I used the rectangular selection tool and outlined the two boxes inside the outer white lines, then copy and pasted into the rectangular box.

    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.

    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.
