Photoshop Cs6 Extended Version 3D Grayed Out

07 January 2016 - 04:40 PM

I have photoshop CS6 extended version. I want to play around with the 3D I even found some beginner tutorials on youtube. However, all of the 3D menu is grayed out. When I googled it the only answer seemed to be uninstall it and reinstall it. There was something else but I don't remember off the top of my head. I think it was something about the activation code. I wanted to check here to see what anyone might have to offer.

Organized And Ready To Scrap

06 November 2015 - 01:11 PM

I think I finally got my supplies organized just the way I like them. When I ventured into the world of digital scrapbooking 5-6 years ago I downloaded just about any freebie I found online. I tried to organized my supplies as best as I could. I had a file for each type of elements - brads, buttons, ribbon, etc. and then subcategorized by color. I had papers sorted mostly by color. I had a file for different tools brushes, styles and the like. Then I discovered Scrap Girls!! Slowly I have been expanding my Scrap Girls supplies and hardly ever using any of the freebies, better quality of products. At first I didn't have very many collections but I had several papers from the Scrap Girl designers. I was still sorting the same way but it would take me forever to find anything and I would get frustrated. After searching the forums for tips on sorting/organizing I kept coming up with the word tagging (well not needing to tag). So I made a list of all the designers that I had items from. Then I would type their initials in the search box so I could find items from that designer. That helped but still took awhile to find. 


So now I have a file labeled scrapbooking supplies. In that file I left all the freebies sorted as I had them. I have another file labeled Scrap Girls. In that file I have a subfile labeled SG kits for all the collections with each collection in it's own file. In the Scrap Girls file I have a subfile for each designer with things that I have but are not part of a collection. So now I can search within a kit, by a designer, or by an embellie. For example if I want to use a certain kit I can either go directly to that kits file or type the kits name in the search box.  If I want to look for a paper but I don't know what color or style I can type paper in the search box and all the papers pop up. Or if I know I'm looking for something from a certain designer I can just type in their initials (BMU for Brandy Murray) The one thing that I learned is to make sure I click open the Scrap Girls file first, so I don't waste time looking through everything on my EHD.


It didn't take me all that long to set it up that way but it definitely makes it easier/faster to find what I want to use. I hardly ever use the freebie stuff but I didn't want to delete them. Now I don't have to wade through all of them to find my awesome Scrap Girls supplies that I love!


Sorry this is so long. If you have any questions let me know. All in all it's whatever works best for you and this seems to work for me.

Internet, Security, And Scrapgirls Issues

27 September 2015 - 06:24 PM

Not sure if this is the correct spot to post this but, here goes. So last night and earlier today I tried to LSL in the All About Me Gallery. When I tried to enter the gallery nothing would pop up. This morning I rebooted and was able to briefly see all the posts. I got interrupted and didn't post anything. I tried again this afternoon. Still the samething. However, after I rebooted my antivirus software is blocking access to this website saying it contains malious content. I did a scan on my computer and there are no threats. So now what? I'm posting this from my Kindle Fire tablet, which I might add I have know problem seeing anything in the gallery. Also when it wasn't blocked I had no issues in the forum or boutique. I don't seem to have any trouble on other sites.

General Question On Heritage Photos

19 May 2015 - 11:11 AM

I need some opinions, comments, advice, etc... About 3 years ago I statrted scrapping a powerpoint presentation using one of the presentation 1-2-3 kits. Unfortunately, I lost the original files (not photos) but do have a copy online at photobucket. In the time I started those I'd like to think my skill level has improved at least somewhat. My question is do I start over? I'm not sure the files at photobucket are the correct size for printing. I also more photos that I haven't scrapped yet. Also the photos have a new meaning to me. I'm not sure if I want to continue with the powerpoint presentation. I know one of the designers did a genealogy collection. 


Now that I know the truth about my past I want to start getting all this going and search more but I feel overwhelmed on where to start . My mother's father had lots of notes on his side but not on his wife's.  I thought maybe get the photos organized and scrapped (and safe) I could go from there.


Sorry to ramble on but I was feeling overwhelmed. If you took the time to read this. I thank you.....
