Finally found the thread on red x's when printing the tutorials:

Also:

Java:this may be a long shot, but some forums discussed this as a fix

I didn't remove the stripes. I instinctively thought they helped tie everything together. The children all bear strong likenesses to the others. The photo is posed well, etc. But you are right, all children in the same color was a bit much. Therefore, I changed the color of the girl's shirt and added blue and purple pansies to her collar to add to the femininity of the shirt. The middle boy got a turquoise shirt. I tried to keep all of the colors at about the same intensity so one didn't stand out more than the others. After all was said and done, I tweaked the colors by adding some saturation to the overall pic. Flattened it and...

Nice looking family, btw.

Janet

The flowers are easy enough to remove if they stand out too much.

Janet,

Making the shirts three different colors is a great idea. I especially like the added element of pansies to the girl's collar. The pansies, however, seem a bit sharp when compared to the rest of the photo so you might want to blur them just a tad. Also (just to be picky, grin) you missed a section of the girl's shirt when changing it to purple.

Overall, nice job and great ideas!

Oops. You are entirely correct. That's what I get when the phone rings, the dryer buzzes and the cats have a fight that flies right over the top of me. Life is wonderful.

Thanks for the heads up.
Janet
