  1. There was some talk of how to increase a margin on one side of a page that will be printed in a book. I think it was in one of Carole's workshops. Does that ring a bell with anyone? Background info: I'm a pet sitter and my holiday gift this year for my human clients (and probably from now on if it's well-received) is going to be a photo book, separated by months, of the animals I took care of in that particular month. But I know that there is going to be some offset on the edges that will be in the binding. Thanks, Lesley
  2. Oh I must have been thinking of something else. Because now that I've actually used some text and paid attention, I, too, use fill. Please ignore me. I've obviously had a long week.
  3. Thanks. I'll have to pay more attention to that.
  4. O.M.G. Several years ago, maybe 10, I needed to know how to do the text on the top and bottom of a circle. I did end up finding instructions on YouTube that got me the results I needed but they were convoluted. Maybe PSP has changed a lot since then, but your instructions are so much more clear and more understandable and I sure do wish I had known you all these years. Only one question. For your text, you use a fill instead of an stroke. Why did you make that choice? Whenever I have used text, unless I want some sort of fancy fill, I've always just chosen stroke and then increased the size of the stroke if I needed to. I'm curious about choosing to use a fill and no stroke instead of the other way around. Thanks.
  5. You can leave it at 1200 pixels for the width and then go to File | Export | JPG Optimizer and it will cut the size of the file down quite a bit.
  6. I did. It seemed like we skipped winter this year. Spring arrived fast and furious.
  7. I live on the other end of the state, over near Springfield. I would love to move to the coast but my husband prefers a more "rural" area.
  8. Finally done with Lesson 2. I needed to ruminate on the idea and then get the pictures on my dog walks.
  9. Thank you for showing us pictures of Switzerland. I've been doing my genealogy and I've found out that my great grandmother was born and spent the first 19 years of her life there before moving to the states in 1892.
  10. As usual, my project is animals because that's what I have the most pictures of. Part of plan behind this is to create a monthly page (or double page) of the pets I take care of each month and then at the end of the year, put them in a book and gift the book to the pet parents. These are my March pups and kitties.
  11. This is my attempt at Lesson 5. I totally forgot to do the texture in the text but I still like the effect. Hannah loved the snow!
  12. @Rene Marker That's EXACTLY what I need. Thank you so much
  13. I'm not sure if this is going to be covered. It has to do with text on a path. I know how to put text around a circle, but the text on the bottom is upside down. I've looked for information before on how to have it right side up like my "professional" image below and I've found the explanation (but as usual I never can find it a second time). If I recall correctly, it's a round about way that you have to do it, but I don't remember.
  14. This is Ousha. The background and the papers were made by me. I'm trying to come up with a tie dye paper, but I haven't quite got to that point. But it does sorta channel Laugh In.
  15. Thank you so much, Carole. That worked perfectly!
