  1. Oops! I created a bunch of vmars316 buttons/banners and saved them as .gif,.jpg.png and dumped them into SiteSpinnerPro. The transparent .png in question in SSP shows as black background as does the .jpg . But in chrome browser the .png is transparent. And of course the .pdn in pdn shows as grey/white checkerboard. Short version: I confused myself with so many images. All is well. Thanks.. vmars
  2. Thanks in advance: I notice that if i save an apparently 'transparent image' as .gif , it is truly transparent(no background). However, if I save that same 'transparent image' as .png , that it has a Black background. Pls, what am i not doing, that needs to be done, to make a transparent .png . Thanks.. vmars
  3. Ah yes, thar she be, great. I noticed that i dont really need to know image size, to make canvas size = image size, if i do the following: select textImage with mWand, then click on Image/'Crop to Selection'. But its nice to be able to see imageSize. Thanks.. vmars
  4. Thanks: Ah, zero tolerance, ok. Ah, the old rectangle tool (to me this is winging it). Pdn does a good job of reporting the exact height & width of canvas. But, I wish that pdn would also show the exact height & width of a selected Object. Then Image ReSize and Canvas Resize would be a cinch. Maybe pdn already does this, and i am just not seeing it. Thanks folks.. vmars
  5. Oops I am using the wrong term really want to reSize canvas to size of selection Thanks.. vmars
  6. Thanks in advance! I would like to crop to this image text: With magicWand i selected text then cntrl+shift+x to crop but maybe because of the diff in image colors(?) results are ugly: Pls, what is a better way to do this? .. vmars316
  7. Thanks, yes, thats pretty cool! .. vmars
  8. Ah, that's great! Btw: Sarkut What did you use to capture those pics(ts01.png, etc)? They are really crisp and clear. Here's what I came up with : By accident (while trying your bite-tut) I stumbled upon this: Thanks All ! .. vmars
  9. Thanks barbieq25 I want to move the whole thing, all layers, and get it out of the way of DropDown menus. Thanks.. vmars
  10. Thanks Sarkut for taking the time to do all that. What a great bite-size Tutorial ! Wish there were more like this. Thanks.. vmars
  11. 1) The Help says: << Pan Using this tool you can scroll, or pan through the image. This functionality is also usable from any other tool at any time: simply hold down the spacebar and then click and drag with the mouse. >> I tried that, but image doesn't move. I dont want the image to be bigger I just want to move it to the right. 2) When i select All, and leftMouseDown and Drag "the Move Selected Pixels too" the only thing that moves is a thin black wire frame of the image. Need help! Thanks.. vmars
  12. How to make this: look like this (gradient wise): This is as close as i get, cant get the gradient to work for me. I click on theWand and drag it across the image. Do i have to drag the gradient across the image too? I have tried it both ways. Could someone rattle this off for me, and either post results or send an email to me, so I can see the steps to take? Thanks.. vmars ps: another thing that throws me off is once i type in some text and go do a diff function I cant get back into same TEXT stuff (what ever its called), that i just created, to change font etc... As you can probably tell i am VERY frustrated.
  13. Greetings; I am trying to recreate this button 'free ware' First i create a bg layer (how do I make bg transparent?) then create layer2 transparent then create layer3 transparent Right here, i don't understand why all layers show as blue background, except (if i uncheck bg) bg shows as blue checkerboard Then set primary color #E9E7C0 (for text) and also set secondary color #8C8038 Then back to layer3 and create text 'free ware' Then select/run GradientTool across text layer3. layer3 gets covered with gradient. I was expecting to see the GradientText (only) with gradient. Can someone pls show me how to do this properly. Thanks.. vmars I uploaded an image file, but I dont see it yet. Here is the image i am trying to reproduce: http://home.hccnet.nl/s.j.francke/software/software.htm Top of page.
  14. Thanks in advance! With the image i am working on: how can i grab hold of the image and move it around on the workspace? Thanks.. vmars
