REGuy Posted August 26, 2007 Share Posted August 26, 2007 Hi all... post #1 so please be gentle. I've used paint.net for some VERY basic editing for a few months, that's about it. However, I've decided I want to design my new RE/MAX business card based on a couple different ones I've seen, with a couple ideas of my own swirled in. The layout guidelines for the print company I'm using are at http://www.print100.com/global/cgi/design_spec_template.aspx under "Rounded Corners Business Card Templates"- these cards have a GREAT look & feel, btw. So how do I use these to start? So the front of the card will primarily be white text on black background, as well as my WONDERFUL picture (see my note below). And the graphics I need to include are "the balloon" and a RE/MAX logo, like the examples linked below; Balloon 1 http://filelibrary.myaasite.com/Content/36/36602/14681327.gif or Balloon 2 http://www.remax-cahi.com/eSource/MarketingMaterials/images/previews_files/large/remax_balloon_drawn.gif and RE/MAX logo http://arkansasdreaming.com/REMAX.gif In my head, the design on the back of the card will be similar to a typical RE/MAX yard sign, like this one (with better color-matching), but with no picture of me/us and with the appropriate changes to content. The balloon is the same from the front, only resized, and I have the all-white RE/MAX text on my lappy. Which brings me to my next question... how can I go about "cleaning up" my "headshot" picture a bit? All I really want to do is smooth out the skin tone a bit, that's all I suppose. I did a few searches but didn't find anything that fit- some stuff on coloring skin tone and the like... maybe my search terms were wrong. All that said, does anyone have any suggestions for me? And how should I begin? Do I need to post anything else? Should I go jump in a lake? Thanks in advance to all, me. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
