Hi everyone - nice challenge LO's so far! I'm still working on mine - have an idea of what I want to do but am not liking the pics I chose at first, so I have to go through my files and find better pics.

"yetye" was kind of what I was thinking, actually

I could use some relaxing! Summer was mostly very stressful, but I'm hoping fall will be better.

That's a shame you didn't have a good summer. I hope autumn is better for you.

So what sort of photos are you looking for? A different mood?

Partly a different mood but partly better photos, the ones I was playing with were kind of flat and didn't translate to b&w all that well, and I didn't really feel like spending any more time on them. I have tons of unscrapped photos so I know there's something better in there somewhere!

I hate working on photos that don't inspire me - I'd change them too!

Anyway, I'm off to bed - 12.30 and my eyelids are dropping.

See you tomorrow.

I'm trialing CS4.

I wanted to make a few paths BTDT.

Anyway. I didn't like it. I was rather surprised at how much more I liked PSE7 which I bought recently.

Anyway the download was expired I think opened it a whole 4 times. And I decided to open it and got the message this is your last use. I thought that's odd according to my maths it ran out yesterday. Re-opened it sorry it's expired.
re-opened it again I have an extra 24 hours use but it's running pretty poorly.

I had heard that adobe free trials expire in odd ways but this is just too weird.

I did like however when my computer battery died after a power cut that I still was able to finish out my 30 days.

Okay so I have a page develoing in photoshop I just can't figure out the journaling

That's strange that you like pse better than cs4, I love my cs3 (too much to upgrade ever version out) but its just what your comfortable with. I am lost with pse but can figure out how to convert pse intructions into photo shop

Because it's laid out like the Corel draw creative suite. Anybody remember what a truly amazing program that was?

I still have a copy on an old computer it's most likley abandon wear now. And I am still amazed that P.S.C.S.4 Is only catching up on some of the functions.

Ok I'm horrified that PSCS4 is only now catching up with some of the functions. The filters are a scrappers dream.

I guess it's what a person is used to though. I tried a lot of the new hot functions and found them a little limited or confused in their execution. I read the users forum before I downloaded and had to say I agree 100% with the users critiques. It's nice it's fast but it's not for me.

PSE sucks up a lot of ram and is slower but it has so many scrapping presets.

And that's what does it for me. Being able on a long night to click on a little icon which brings up a pre-set function written just for scrapbooking and be finished.

I guess I should mention PSE7 is also extremely plug in friendly there are a lot of after market addons which give it the functionality of pscs4 without losing the scrap friendly interface.

I do like it, however, I keep feeling tempted to rotate the picture of the baby so all heads are pointing in the same direction.



I thought that too at first so I rotated the pic, but it looked really weird. Her pics as a very small baby are all laying down, so that is why I decided to keep the pic as is and the emphasize it with the little heart. Along the lines of 'it's not a bug, it's a feauture!'

I'm sorry, weird geek humor getting away from me.

I really like CS3. I rarely use the filters, I use actions a lot and then build from there. You can download those from all kinds of great sites.

I have never tried Elements. What are the scrapfeatures?

I started scrapping in Paint Shop Pro XII. It was very easy to get started in and some features are better than CS3. But on the whole, I love CS, but am not thinking op upgrading yet.

You don't have to free transform to resize there is a box you tick and when it's on everything opened in the layout can be rotated and resized.

If I want a 12x12 page with a transparent background I open the pre-set scrapbooking template.

I have a little tray at the bottom of my workspace where I can review all open elements and drag and drop onto my LO.

If I want to edit my photos I have before and after option so I can revert to the original at any stage. And I can discard the edit with one click. This option also works on actions.

All filters have picture icons so I can predict how they will work before applying it to my lo.

It organises all my scrapped pages in it's photo organiser. I then can add a large size of journaling about each lo as well. For example all my kit details.

It comes with a very good selection of digi kits. And digi book templates.

And I can still use it as a basic PS.

Edit paths run actions photo edit.

What I can't do is create paths, create actions or the edit in 3D.

Good morning,

I'll admit to being a bit of a hopeless case with tech talk. I just kind of glaze over reading stuff like that so I can't add anything to that discussion I'm afraid I'm too visual and I need to see what you're talking about

Does (or has) anyone here entered LOs into any of the normal open challenges on the challenge forum? I'm just curious how your entry was received. Kate and I did once or twice and were basically told they weren't welcome I'm just thinking ahead to whether we'll do a poll vote for a winner in our challenge and if we'll get many voters or not.

That's why I like PSE because in order to do most of the things you simply click on the matching picture.

I haven't tried entering the normal challenges because a lot of challenges are for paper only or for closed groups. I don't mind though because there are simply too many digi challenges to enter out there.

I mean that I belong to other sites and they all have challenges and prizes and I've won a few but to be quite honest. I can live without entering that many competitions.

There are more than enough online for everybody to have their own area of expertise and challenges.

I'm more than happy for paper scrappers to have paper competitions. And for digi scrappers to have digi competitions. I entered a hybrid one once didn't win. But DD got a nice T-shirt out of it.

And since I paper scrap as well and I know how time consuming and expensive it can be. I can actually understand traditional scrappers being resistant to sharing a competition with digi scrappers.

It's not a level playing field and I know we have the upper hand. I went to a scrap shop the other day and I kept thinking is this it? Where is the fun stuff?

I'm sorry that the other scrappers were not nice in how they handled it though. I have heard similar stories from paper scrappers though. These competitions can get very cliquey and very touchy too easily.

Just remember that we have so many more options available to us.

That's true and I do appreciate the options we have - which is why I digi scrap now! I don't feel the need to enter lots of challenges any more although I did for a while. I think it was just the way it was handled honestly, no big deal.

Anyway I must go and start my day!

Good morning...hi how are ya??

I gotta say...I have PSE5 and I am in no hurry to upgrade at all. DH bought a mac that has CS3 on it...he wanted a mac and thought that I would be falling off my chair excited about CS3...and I'm really not!! The only thing I wish I could do more of w/PSE is action related...but I've found a site here or there that has great actions that run in PSE, so I'm happy for now.

Will try to catch up on LO's tonite...at first glance they all look great!!

I was just asked to enter my recent layout in "Beautiful Mess" ... by SuperAllyFan.

I host the Scrap that Large Photo challenge and I welcome digi. (it's not running this month).

I haven't seen a whole lot of digi in the challenges though.

So I use PS7 at home - LOVE IT!
I use CS3 at work - LOVE IT!

Tried CS4 ... hated it! I hated the interface. I am sure that there are some big improvements but for me (for now), all the tools I need are in PS7 or CS3.

Good morning everyone! Hoping to get some digi scrapping in today but really am not sure!!!!

so to feel old i have been using photoshop since #6 thats what 6 versions ago, so i am totally into photoshop, just have to up my masking skills. and i am also forcing myself to learn lightroom, because editing 30 or so photos at a time sounds so appealing to me. and i have been playing alot more with photography lately than scrapping.
oh and i had to use correl at work and hated it.

so now off to finish my blog surfing and then maybe i can either scrap or take pictures.

Carolyn, I don't get blogs, either. I just don't have time and for the most part am not particularly interested in the diary aspect. It can be a nice way for people to share things, but overall I feel like I have to wade through a lot to find what interests me. Too many of them load slowly, too (and on dial-up they're practically impossible), so that just irritates me.

Talk to me about actions! This is a new concept. Can I use them in PSE5? Or do I need to wait until I upgrade to 7?

I look at blogs for inspiration ... to check what my favourite artists are up to. I love checking them out. Maybe I'm a bit nosey too!

I have my favourites and I check up on them every once in awhile. I keep my own blog ... for a variety of reasons, DT stuff, recording stuff ... I personally really enjoy it.

Yes you can use actions in PS5.

However I've heard you can only run actions designed for PSE5. A lot of other versions there is a touch more flexibility.

However great news. The scrappin cop, and atomic cupcake both have free actions for PSE5. Which are truly great actions. Just make sure it says compatible with in PSE5 before downloading.

You can also google freebie sites I had a site bookmarked which had a whole section devoted to free PS actions.

I blogged a few months ago about how I got a discount on my 1 T HD I was very please with myself. Does that count as blog banality?

I thought it was the best thing out there. When the exchange rate went back up and prices dropped my 1TB HD was still a great deal.

I'm still proud of that.

Thanks I like it.

An action is a recording of steps to make something. A giant shortcut. Press play and it does it for you.

My favourite actions are things like stroke to path so you can brush the outside of a page or shape. In PSE you need an action to do this. It's cute for that stitched look on things.

I mainly use actions to decorate my text. And it's how most designers make alphas. It saves a lot of time.

If you can think out how to do it you can record an action and repeat it.

There are so many actions I have stopped downloading. Except from my favourite sites.

If you go to Amanda Taylor's blog, she has some actions on there ... one of her actions is to resize her photographs automatically.

She actually has some pretty amazing stuff on her blog - LOTS of really GREAT tutorials about how to make your photos look better and stuff.

She has a freebie action: http://www.taylormade-designs.net/

Actions - are the best thing ever. Really. They can take a piece of paper and in about 5 seconds, turn it into a plastic button. It is in fact a "recording of steps" - you run the action and it does everything necessary to make that paper into the button. They can turn paper into metal...into glitter...into chipboard...etc...

here's the link to the atomic cupcake page...you can download a freebie and there are instructions for how to install them into various versions of PSE. TRY IT!!

I have spent the last few hours trying to crash CS4. It's been fun. I found out why it reactivated. Somewhere there was a glitch in how many days had expired.

Something interesting too know. I think it might be because I didn't use it that often so the count down got mixed up or it might be because my computer was reset. It is a lot faster than PSE.

Yes they do.

All good designers will put what programs the actions work with next to the description of the action. If they don't skip the action. I've downloaded a few from freebie finder which have not been worth the effort.

So does mine. I couldn't find the load option on PS when I installed my first action. I bugged 2 freinds for hours until somebody sent me screen shot. Then I got it straight away. I'm simply too visual.

Agreed! I have to be in the mood though. AT the moment I have a great digital photography book that includes a lot of PSE stuff adn I've been *intending* to sit and try out some new stuff for about 4 weeks now because I know I'll struggle, as much as I want to do thsi new stuff. I need some quiet time - maybe when the girls are back at school!

i love actions, although i use them mainly on just my pictures.

the blogs i usually surf are linked to my blog, or so i think they are. most are scraplebrities that i like to look at for inspiration, and my friends that i have made here. i don't get facebook, i have account to keep up with family that's about as good as i get on there.

Morning ladies,

I love actions, I usually use them for the pics though. But I am so going to try out the sites you have put up here. If I ever get the time.

And thanks Jude, for the explanation on the scrap stuff in PSE. The tray sounds cool, CS does not have that. But I work with two screens, one with my scrap stuff and one with CS. I can then drag and drop.
And the filter result. I do not get filters, mainly because I have no clue how the result will be. If I ever get some spare time, I want to look into that.
So maybe you can point me in the direction of tutorials or something??? Be much appreciated.

Really got to start work now. So BBl!

Morning all,

I'm at home today waiting for my washing machine to be fixed - at last!! But I have repoerts to finish so no scrapping until that's done!!

I must say I'm really enjoying all the swapping of ideas etc that's going on here. It's what I hoped a digi group would be all about, as well as sharing our LOs

They're cute...I like them a lot...just not sure what occasion I would have to use them. I absolutely want the Cinzia masks though...your LO looked awesome with it, and the set also has the three sectioned mask and I'd like to try to find something to use that with. I'm not one for masks, usually, but I really like those alot.

I adore masks (as you know!) and they are certainly some of the best. I used the one with 3 square-ish sections recently too - love 'em!

So is a mask basically a specialized shape selection? Probably an over-simplification but I'm trying to learn

Yep...that pretty much sums it up. And you just "clip" your photo or paper to them.

Hi everyone,

Still haven't bought my stuff at oscraps and skipped designer digitals for now. I have done a page though. I had everything done but couldn't find a good wordart, so made one myself. Was fun to do.

Do you use elements? I have a link for a tute and plug in for elements so anyone can mask without clipping.

It's on another forum if anyone wants it P.M me for the link and I will email it. I clip 90% of the time but some soft fade masks need to be used the correct way.

It makes the downloads very fast.

Message sent. I had to edit it though. My children wanted to watch a DVD. Why is the instant I start doing something simple they turn up? And then it's never that simple again. lol

hi girls. i have been around here for a long time. i'm hoping you will all keep me inspired because i've been a bit of a drop-out lately. my biggest project and most of my layouts are for my grandkids' scrapbooks. i have both PSE and CS2 but honestly, my layouts are almost all done using Lumapix FotoFusion, a program i've grown to love. i use the others for touch-ups, etc. here is one of micah that i haven't posted until today.

Cool Dude with Attitude By LindaC

the only product i recognize is the "vector grunge brush #1". if anyone recognizes where those other little line things came from, let me know and i'll give proper credit.

well, it may take me awhile but i'm off to check out some of your galleries. i'm so happy to be here.

I will put it on my list of things to do. I like challenges.

It is getting annoyingly busy here. I hate cleaning with kids around. It just makes no sense to do. They have everything destroyed in less time I took to clean it.

It's like the saying - tidying your house when you have children is like clearing your driveway when it's still snowing.

Hi everyone! Organizing the things I've downloaded with my new DSL I plan to do some scrapping this weekend, both digi and paper. But we've got some household stuff to take care of, too, so not sure quite how much I'll get done. Nice to have a weekend, tho!

More nice LOs you're all posting. Every time I try to do something with that much white space it just makes me nervous, lol. I think I might have to challenge myself to do an LO with lots of space.

Here are the most common abbreviations.
CU. Commercial use can be used to make kits for sale.
PU Personal use can only be use by you no gifting or scrapping for others.
S4H Scrap for hire can be gifted or used to scrap for others and you can be paid for your scrapping.

Every designer has their own set of rules so it pays to read the TOU that comes with a kit.

Hi girls. I spent a little time today trying to get a look at everyone's galleries - not quite finished yet but i'm working on it. can't believe i actually did a page for jacoby's scrapbook tonight. i was inspired by the black and white and color combo thing goin' on. don't know if it fits into the challenge - probably not. you will have to tell me. the bottom layer is the background, next the b&w picture and on top of that a color picture that lays exactly over the b&w pic.

hope everyone had a great day. i'm soooo glad it's friday!

I like the way the photo background fades into black and white.

Morning all, happy Saturday!

So glad you're being inspired Linda - you're doing some lovely pages For the challenge I had intended there to be 2 'photographs' on the LO.....can you be inspired to do another page that fits that? I hope that's ok?

I have one work appointment today but then I'm free - if you can call it free with 4 teenage girls coming for a sleepover tonight Ah well, I know and like them all and it's the last blast before Lois goes off to Norway then back to school.

See you later

Good morning friends!! I think I've caught up on LO love.

Any big plans for the weekend? I need to take some pictures...I'm running out (except for sports ones...and I'm just not in the mood to scrap them!). There's also a new place that opened here that does one hour foot massages for $15. I think I'm gonna check it out!!

Here's one I whipped up...well, ok, I worked on it for dang near six days but only a few minutes at a time...not my most favorite way to scrap but I'm addicted!!
