Thanks for the tips.

Thanks for the tips, I have been working on a few different DISigns over the past few days, hopefully they look better. SO here's the link to the album in photobucket.

That looks much better. One suggestion; the text running across the center is difficult to read. I'd suggest either breaking it up in to 2 lines or trying a different font. The "Disney" font is nice but even Disney doesn't use it for much as it's a difficult font to read, especially in all caps. You could also try running the 2nd line in a different curve offset 1/8-1/4 to the right of the first line. I strongly recommend stepping back from the screen to about the distance someone might be standing if they were reading your shirt and seeing what it looks like.

A little frustrated

OK, so I had to take a break from my "Blue Mickey Head", because well, I was getting a bit frustrated.

Anyway, I decided that I would make an attempt at my own Neon Green "Do you DIS?" signs :. So here ya go!

Hey there! I'll be lurking for a while until I pull the trigger and purchase PSE. I'm now looking for the best price (I'm cheap). I've been playing with pixlr.com (free "equivalent" of PS) for a week or so, but I'm finding it very limiting. I can't do name fills (maybe it's me), only clean up/change colors of existing clips. I then take those and work in powerpoint, which is also very limiting.

Keep the great tips coming. I'll be taking notes & hope to contribute soon.

Me again. I have a question... Say I have a clip art of a ladybug (red with blk dots). I know how I can replace the red with a solid color, but what about a background? With PSE, can I replace the red only with a striped background image I have, for example? TIA

Yes I have replaced backgrounds, even made them transparent so I can move just the image onto other designs.

I found instructions on google.

Ooop. Sorry. I wasn't clear in my question. Thanks for your reply. I know how to replace backgrounds and make them transparent. What I want to do is take an image (such as a background of stripes) and use it to replace the red of the ladybug. Kind of a color replace but with an image of a background vs a solid color done right in the program. Does that make sense?

yup, its kinda like how I do name fills. I select the area I want to copy it and then using the magic wand I select the area I want to paste it into..... you can either use the tools at the top (paste in selected section I think it is called)or with PSE I use the short cut keys command+shift+v

hope this helps a bit, someone might have a easier way, this is just how I have found so far while using the program.

I downloaded the 30 day free trial of PSE. After watching numerous videos and reading just as many instructions, I DID IT!! Funny thing is it's not the way anything/anyone said to do it. I did a few name fills and replaced my ladybug wings with different background images. I'm hooked. I finally had to go to bed or I'd still be playing. Thank you for your help.

I'm glad this thread has been started.

I am hopefully going to start trying to attempt to do some designs within the next week or so.

Any tips for how to start? I read that getting a good Mickey head is the best starting point (how do I start with this???)

Also, where do you guys find all the clip art? Just google it?

Sorry for all the questions, I am sooooo new at this. We have such a long countdown that I would love to be able to figure this out to help pass the time.

I am using a mac, not sure if this makes things harder.

Thanks in advance.

Hello! I'm Lisa. I'm a SAHM who loves to do all sorts of arts and crafts, esp. Digital scrapbooking. I have PSE8, which I love, and can do a lot of things with, but if you all don't object, I would like to follow along here to learn more.

Thanks
