Digital Images

I've become interested in working with digital photographs and printing them onto fabric to incorporate into my quilts.  I opted for Paint Shop Pro but the salesman advised that the memory on my computer was not sufficient to run this programme properly.  It has just cost £100 to repair and have the operating system replaced so now is not the time to spend any more money on a computer which is in excess of 5 years old.  What the chap did recommend was Photo Explosion Deluxe Version 4 and this appears to run very well on my antique PC.  My daughter has just stepped in and had a play with Photo Explosion - she says it is just like PSP which she uses all the time in her A level studies - Great News ............. I've got someone to help me through the maze of features.

Early days and you can't get more novice than this.............


Thistle



With vignette



Scabious


With some distortion

I can see potential already for some really interesting fabrics...................watch this space!

Keep up the good work. You'll be addictive to photo manipulation in no time!
