Re: T-Ball Poster of Grandson

Thank you so much for responding. I have never posted anything. Let me try something first and see if it will work.

Thanks again for responding.

I cannot get the attachment to work. I have followed all of the directions to post a picture. My computer has never allowed me to post a picture on any board, but I have been able to use tinypic before. I don't know how else to try and share it. It is in PSCS2 and is a jpeg file.

What does anyone think? This is my first time posting anything on here and I would really appreciate any feedback. . . even if it's from Ant.

Re: T-Ball Poster of Grandson

I think your grandson is going to like it very much, especially since his grandmother did it for him.

You might try and make it a bit more vibrant, that is unless the subdued coloring is what fits with his bedroom (or where ever he may hang it).

Keep up the good work. Families make it all worthwhile.

Re: T-Ball Poster of Grandson

If it where mine, I would take out the image in the lower right, make the image with the bat bigger and add some saturation to it (at least for my monitor). The other two images need to be smaller and faded back more. The background should be something that suggests a baseball field, it looks like he is playing in a fog bank.

But all of that is just my 2 cents worth and maybe not even worth that

Re: T-Ball Poster of Grandson

FYI: With Photoshop use File > Save for Web... and use the Quality slider to control final file size.

------------------

For openers, a great first "at bat."

Consider the following as "food for thought," not criticism:
* If you intend to print, the image aspect ratio (width, height) would not scale to traditional print sizes such as 8x10, 16x20, etc. If your plans for the final results are to e-mail to friends/relatives or display on the web, then no problem. F
* If the final result will be framed, take into account frames will cover 1/4"-1/2" each edge, depending on print and frame size. In other words be sure to position image components in such a way to avoid a "too close to the edges" look.
* To me the overlapping and semi-transparent baseball glove is distracting.
* The sharp (vs. diffused) pic at the bottom right showing the back of his uniform draws attention away from the central batting image, which deserves most of the attention.
* In the interpretation I crafted from yours I swapped the bottom L and top R pics, diffused the bottom R pic and brightened his face (under the helmut) a little.

In the big scheme of things the above comments are really just nits. No matter what you decide to do, including 'nothing' which would b perfectly OK, someday he'll be simply tickled that Grandma made something as special as this.

Continued success. You're off to a great start.

Glad to see you got there in the end Kerri, I like it except for the central glove it is a bit distracting, but you have done your grandson proud

Newbie Re: T-Ball Poster of Grandson

Thank you so much for responding. I will try and work on the suggestions. I had never done anything like this before. By the way. . . their uniforms are that color of grey with white. They almost look like black and white pictures! When I print this, it comes out on 11 x 17 poster paper.

Can't wait to see it once I achieve all of your improvement suggestions. Thanks again.
