Trouble with Chapter 5 in Katrin's book

In a few of the forums, several people have mentioned difficulty getting good results in Katrins Eisman's book on various chapter lessons. I knew there was a part that I did that was specifically troublesome to me and as I was flipping through the pages I finally found it.

Did any one get the moire' lesson in chapter 5 to work out? It's the one with the postcard of the tree with the lines going through it. Of all the ones I had trouble with, that one didn't work for me at all. The photo kept getting smaller and smaller but the pattern stayed there. I was wondering if anyone was sucessful with that one and can work with me to see what I was doing wrong. I'd like to know because if it works it could be a very useful technique.

Thanks for your help.

DJ

Hi Kathleen,
Thanks for the quick response. Bummer though, I was really hoping that one actually worked. You may be right and 5.5 could have something to do with it but I don't recall having to work around any instructions to accomodate them to 5.5 as I had in a few other cases. I guess I did follow directions if you had trouble too. Thanks again for the input.
DJ

I didn't do that one yet. Maybe I'll just stay away?

No you don't Ed. You can't get off that easy. Besides I need to know if you experience the same thing I did.

Okay I walked the plank, and fell off! I gave it a try, and I have to agree with you. It just didn't work. I noticed she said to scan the image at 3 - 4 times the finished size for output, and I was using the smaller file. It doesn't seem to me that this would have an effect on it, but might that possibly have something to do with it?

Well I gave it a whirl myself and never could get it to work.

Now somebody has just got to figure this one out as I agree with DJ it would be very useful.

I downloaded the big file and went beyond the amount of times she "smalerized" is, as my son used to say, and I still got nothing. Sounds like we found a legitimate glitch in the book. Time to e-mail Katrin?

Maybe. But it's your turn. I've e-mailed her three times already -- don't want to be a pain.
