Hey ya'll!

Does anyone remember the website that has the stitched Mickey ears you can personalize with anyone's name? I remember somebody gave us the link last year, but I guess I didn't bookmark it. I remember once you found the site, you type in your name and Goofy turns a crank and it "monograms" your name onto Mickey ears.

Hi

I bookmarked the website. However I remember that you had to turn your pop-ups off to get it to work but can't seem to get the pop-up window to display. If someone figures it out let me know anyway here's the website

I'm not sure about Internet Explorer, but I have Mozilla Firefox installed. I got the "Thank you" screen with that link. However there's a place to click if you want to allow pop-ups. I told it to allow pop-ups from BigFoot Interactive & at first I got nothing. However, when I went back & clicked on the link again it opened a new pop-up window with the DisneyMatic machine!

OK - got it for Internet Explorer! :teeth: (I had to find out where I'd hidden it on my computer first. ;))

1. Go to the Tools menu in IE. (left to right it should be: File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools & Help)
2. Choose Pop-up Blocker and then "Turn Off Pop-Up Blocker"
3. Put this address in the Address bar: http:// images.bigfootinteractive.com/creative/2002/disney/apr/thankyou/flash/disneymatic.php?src=&house=&profile=504342128 But do not have the space between http:// and the rest of the address. I had to add the space to keep it from truncating again. :confused3
(I was having problems in IE with the truncated version in the post above for some reason. :confused3 )

OK - If you're using IE, do you also have another Pop-Up blocker installed? Like Lavasoft's Pop-up Stopper? If so, hold down the <CTRL> button (row below SHIFT on keyboard) while you click the link.

Also, after you go to Tools & tell it to allow pop-ups from BigFoot try opening a NEW window to paste the address into. Sometimes it doesn't take affect in the first window.

Wow this is really cool :cool1: I got it to make my name but how do I save it to my computer. When I hit the right button the mouse it doesn't have the save picture as option. Can someone please help. Thanks

It won't display a full-sized image for you. If you don't mind having only the small image you could just hit the PrintScreen button on your keyboard & then paste it into Paint.

I've tried telling it to Print to File (in the Print window just under Select Printer area) but I've never been real successful at that. It's one area of computers that's always frustrated me. :blush:

Anyway, after you check the Print to File box click OK. That opens the Print to File window where you can name the file. You have to include the folder name when you name the file - otherwise you'll have to use the Search feature to find it again - since you can't "see" where it wants to put it.

This is where I lose it! The file is now saved in a format that your printer can read, but I'm not sure how to retrieve it. :confused3 No other program will read it.

This is so fustrating. There is no program to open it with. Thanks anyway

OK - I just Googled it to see if I could find out how to do it. Try going to: http://www.mrkent.com/forms/tools/prntofile.htm
The instructions may be too complicated for the average user - I don't know. They made sense to me, but I worked in the IT field for over 10 yrs. (I only ever did it once & that was probably 18 yrs ago! ACK!)

Anyway, see if that helps.

I can't get the page to open. I get 2 screens opening: 1 that says they are "sprinkling pixie dust" on my computer and 1 that is a yellow screen that says "Hope you enjoyed your DisneyMatic." The pixie dust screen freezes up at 20% and it just sits there..... :confused3

piratesmate
10-14-2005, 03:57 PM
OK - You're supposed to get both of those screens. The yellow one sits in the background if you have your browser set to allow pop-ups. The pop-up window is where the Disney Matic machine shows up - after the pixie dust message.

It sounds like your connection is slow or too much is happening for your computer to handle.
How much memory do you have?
How old/slow is your computer? Do you know?
Are you using dial-up, cable or DSL?
What browser are you using? IE, Firefox, Netscape, other?

If you can let me know the answers to those questions I'll see if I can figure it out. I'm not sure if I'll be able to figure it out, but I'll try.

I have dial up and it is frustratingly s l o w !!

I have WIN98, 512 memory, and IE

I keep clearing out my cookies and trying again but it gets to that 20% and won't download any more. I may have to shut my computer down and try again later.

piratesmate
10-14-2005, 04:24 PM
OK - Dial up is probably your problem! There were often things I couldn't get to open when I was using Win98 & dial-up. :( If you're up extremely early or late, you might try again then. It's possible that you could luck out when their site isn't busy & get it to download before it times out.

If you would be okay with the white version (coloring book type) of the hat I could print it for you, scan it & email the page. Unfortunately, our black ink cartridge is getting low so I'd rather not print it out in black. If you want me to do that for you, just PM me with the name you want.

piratesmate - thanks for the website. I did understand it but I wanted to up the ears in a pictures folder, then in a word doc. and make them smaller to print later on transfer paper and iron on a t-shirt. Oh well I guess I'll just make door signs with them. Maybe after I print them out I can shrink them on the copier at work. Thanks for all your help :flower:

Hi

All I did to save them to my computer was zoom in on the image at Disneymatic by right clicking it then clicked the Print Screen button then open up paint program and clicked paste. Voila there were my ears!

I was trying to make them purple and sparkly but as you can see I only got the purple on the background. Still trying to figure that one out.

piratesmate

DizneyDogs - Try using the white, coloring book image instead. Depending on what program you're using, you should be able to "fill" the inside of the hat with the purple sparkly stuff then. I think that would look really cool! :teeth:

CajunPrincess - I know what you mean. That's what I wanted to do as well, but it's not as straightforward as I'd like. :rolleyes: To do that you'll need to print it out, scan it, re-size and then take it to Word to put on transfer paper.....or as you said photocopy & reduce.

That whole "print to file" thing only saves the file in a format that the printer will understand. The original idea was to allow you a way of transporting the file to another computer that doesn't have the original program on it, but still be able to print it out. However, now I think the idea is to prevent you from altering the file....but then again maybe I'm just paranoid. ;)

Once you do the print screen and you open it up in paint and save it can't you just then open it up in Word by inserting a picture. At least that's what I did anyway and it worked great.

I tried doing the coloring book image for my sparkly sig but the my picture editing program isn't allowing me to make it transparent :-(

Yes, that works if you want it small. But if you want it larger than you get with "print screen" you lose definition by doing it that way.

What program are you using? I've never done sparkly stuff but have seen a lot of people doing it in their signature lines. Let me see if I can do it in PhotoShop. If so, I'll try it & send it to you.

mtblujeans - PM me with your email address & I'll send you file after dinner.

what I did was zoom to the size I wanted by right clicking the image on the disneymatic page to make it bigger

I used a program online to make it sparkly, I am not sure where it was, I found it by doing a search here on the Dis boards "sparkly signatures" and someone posted directions
