In Topic: Brandy Murray's Ultimate Artist Action Set

Brandy - I have CS6 and Ultimate Artist (which I've played around with but never felt comfortable with my results). I also have a Wacom tablet but I rarely use the pen setting. I would be willing to "trouble shoot" but I am rarely home -won't be back until Friday. I'd love to help though.

That's great Cathy! Can you check to see if your watercolor brush works? I am looking for someone who has trouble with that brush not working. Most people don't, but I am finding that a few people do. We don't know if it is the tablet setting or the brush itself. You can email me at brandym.scrapgirls@gmail.com? Just whenever you get back... thanks so much!!

I get it, I hope you can find a place that can get it to you in time at the 11X17. As for the cropping...Did you set the measurements to 8.5X11? Also for me in CS I have to hold down the shift button while I drag...keeps the measurements right. I stop when it gets to the edge. You will kinda feel it snap to the edge. I thought in PSE you didn't have to do that, but maybe you do.

How I cut the 11x17 to 8.5X11 is this....


Select the crop tool. then look at the top and change the parameters to 8.5X11. Then while holding down the shift key (you may not have to do that part in Elements) drag from the top down toward the right, then hit enter to crop it. Then save it as a JPG file. The Control+Z or Control+Alt+Z to back up and do the same for the bottom, starting dragging from the bottom right up and repeat. I hope this make sense. I think I saw that Artscow said that if you wanted items by Christmas you had to order by the 5th. I didn't look at their calendars so I'm not sure of their sizes, but I just ordered a coffee table book of the years layouts for the twins today. Might be worth a look.


I am sure some of the other girls can give you some advice on other printing companies. Good luck!
