    Carcassonne

    Ok - here goes...still learning how to get to grips with camera and now first stab at post processing. Is it me or is Elements a nightmare to learn and master..? It's taken me a day just to learn how to put a border on...

    Anyway all - your usual C&C please. Remember they are my first!

    Thanks - I realised after that I hadn't copied the link in. For some reason they won't upload now! Think I have limited the sizes etc but just checking...

    Hi Jonathan,

    I should confess that I have difficulties to understand the link between your title end your pictures.

    On the first one your black and white shape is really too big and doesn't not allow a proper reading of the picture.

    Re: Carcassonne

    Je suis d'accord! I agree - I've only just started using elements and am still trying to work out the size of images / canvass and what the difference is. The first time I attached them I previewed the post first and the pictures were huge...!! so I reduced them and got the above. Any suggestions?

    Cordialement

    I tried the tinypics for the first time but was a little confused about the size limits. Wasn't sure if they referred to dimensions or pixels...Next time I'll try your sizes.

    Re: Carcassonne

    For best results, Jonathan, resize photos to 700 pixels max on the longest edge and no more than 150 kb. I usually adjust the compression ratio until I get under that size. And quite a few people seem to have had some glitches with the Tinypics upload system recently so you aren't alone.

    And don't worry, most photo editing software is confusing at first. Initially I never made much sense of the Elements range and quickly switched to another brand. Eventually I ended up with CS5 but I still find it a bit confusing and rather long winded compared with other software.

    But it does produce good results and I am gradually learning to accept it's particular quirks now.

    Re: Carcassonne

    Thanks Geoff. Just tried another picture, hopefully making progress with borders and sizes (see Raspberry Ripple) - your dimensions worked a treat.

    Thanks

    Re: Carcassonne

    Hi Jonathan,

    The trick is to work in pixels, not inches or centimetres, that way the pixels per in/cm doesn't some into it and you know what size you're going to get. Glad you got it sorted eventually, but I would suggest a read of this thread.

    HELP THREAD: How can I post images here?, especially check out the "Here is a recommended method:" section here.
