Learning to Fly.
I have been working on some twinchies and making magnets out of them using interchangeable body parts. Too much fun! Makes me feel like a kid again! Remember those flip books as a kid? It's fun making smaller bodies, larger arms, etc. Sort of like having your own ring of circus freaks.
Besides having fun, I have learned something new and that is how to change the resolution on photos. I consider myself very inadequate at times with the computer when I have to read to figure it out, as I am a show me person. While this may be easy for some, I found it a big accomplishment! Sometimes we just need to sprout wings and fly!
UPDATE: Here's how I changed resolutions. Note that I have a mac computer, but you may find some of the same things simular with a pc. Find your photo program to do your resolutions in. Mine happens to be photoshop elements 3. I opened up my photo in photoshop and at the top of the bar it says image. It gives you an option to resize. click on image size. It will show you your photo in pixel dimensions and on the right you can also have the option to change in percentages. It's a bit of trial and error to find what you need, but if you change the height, you will automatically get what will be proportionate in width. Some times you need to change resolutions 300 X 600 or something like that. I actually ended up using the percentages for change but it basically does the same thing. One of my postings accepted a very small image so I put in 25% and it was perfect for it. Anyway when you are done, you just have to SAVE AS and I saved it to my desk top or you can save in your photos program. That's all there is to it! Good grief and no one would tell me how to do this from people that knew how to do it!
