Thanks, April.  Back to "copy, paste, resize, rotate"... although I'll certainly be playing with new brushes, too!

Just want to be sure I didn't miss anything...  I took a clipart graphic and made it into a brush.  Using this new brush, I "stamped" it onto my page and the stamp appears in the color that is my foreground color.  The original clipart is blue, yellow and red.  Can a brush keep all the original colors?

Thank you, Teresa!  I didn't know it was this easy!

That's a good point, Barb.  BrendaT, if you have your monitor set to a high brightness, you might not necessarily notice that you have some dark pictures.

Do I fork over the dough for PSE or go with CA2 and have money left over to buy goodies for my album?

*OR* use the free CA and free GIMP and have even more money to buy goodies!  Then as time goes on and a big discount opportunity comes your way, you can purchase the program of your choice.


There is no shame in using more than one program to complete a project.  Professionals do it all the time.  That's why Adobe Creative Suite comes with several programs: Photo Shop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver, and more.


So for example, your work flow could be:

  1. buy some goodies from the Scrapgirls boutique
  2. bring them into GIMP and blend with photos
  3. bring blended photos into CA where you can easily build a multi-page photobook project
