No great graphics skill shown here, but it is one of my favorite pictures of my grandson. It sits by my computer, and I enjoy it each day.

No, I don't feel "busted". I never claimed the hat was an original idea, or even very well good one. However, I have not seen whatever pic you are referring to. Thank you for sharing that, though.

The child is now 2 1/2 years old and the pic was done for Christmas, 2000.

I am disappointed though. I was expecting a nice comment about how cute the baby Hunter is.

Jerry,

The error was mine. I guess I have spent too much time reading step-by-step and how-to around here and not enough time absorbing the culture of this friendly group. I'll have to pay more attention to that now. Thanks for the kind words. Bob

We do a lot of this where I work...I am the desktop publisher/graphic designer at a local copy shop.

we do calenders too...although they are pretty generic.

I am lucky that I have access to our Cannon 5500 digital copier/printer
we use HP 80# matte paper...it's a very nice paper, however it does crease on one side when folded. We use to use gloss paper but it didn't run through the machine very well so we got rid of it.

On a slightly different, but similar theme I just completed a project that will be a x'mas present to my son's grandparents.

I do a lot of manipulations, holiday cards, and other graphic art projects that mainly feature their grandson.

I just completed a ten minute movie / slideshow that puts them all into one nice presentation. It has stills of the images, titles, transitions, animation all with a music soundtrack.

Since this thing took me forever to put together the way I wanted, I felt it needed to be presented in nice packaging as well. Some of his grandparents have DVD players others have VHS so I had to do this in 2 formats. The VHS package became a graphic art project in itself.

I posted a picture of the final packaging in the gallery, here is a link if you care to take a peek.

Phyllis, you do a great job, just looked at the web site. I do so much like you but the part I am getting into more is the restoration of photos. That is not easy with some of the old photos, do you learn by trial and error or who was your teacher? I have my own t shirt and sign business that I have learned so much from, I also work at a studio where I do retouching where ever I get a chance. This is a great site to learn from, so much to read so little time. I am looking for the paper that the camera stores use for making photo calendars, I have some but the paper they have is not too thick but thick enough where you can't see through it. Office Max is one that has the paper, but not for re sale. Any help??

Hello Designs 21 (if that's your real name),

Welcome to the site. I'm assuming that you've already visited the "challenges" area, but if not, do so. You will find a lot of submissions with excellent explanations on how they were done. Also, if you haven't seen Katrin Eismann's book "Restoration & Retouching", try your local library. It's a book that a lot of us consider a "must have". Above all, try some of the challenges. Post your results, and ask for feedback. Also check out the tutorials and tips sections of the site. You'll pick up good techniques in nothing flat.

Ed
