My first inspiration post

Hi all, Kate here
Time for a little inspiration!
 Easter is just around the corner, then it is suitable with eggs.
Used me of a die that resembles an egg and made a tag of it.
I color the image Easter Bunny Monkey with Chameleon.

My embellishments are just some feathers, flowers and ribbon!

Have a fab day!!

Layering Images made Easy with Audrey

Hi everyone, it's Audrey from the DT with you today.  I hope you are having a wonderful day.

Do you ever get JPG images and want to layer them, but have trouble getting them to look right?  Well, I have an easy and FREE way to help you get those clear, layered images you've always wanted.

Today I am working with 2 images from INKY IMPRESSIONS STAMPS New March Release.  The first one is Carrot Patch Background and the other is Bunny Ears LiLi.

Your first step is to convert those JPGs to transparent PNG files (you can also convert to GIF files).  You can do this in 2 easy steps using Free Online Image Editor.  Open the program and go to where it says Choose File and then follow the steps to find your image and press "Upload"


Once you have uploaded your image, you will be looking at the screen below, click on the Wizards tab at the top and then click on "Transparency" (I have it highlighted with my cursor on it,


After that, click on the part of the screen where your image is and voila, the background is transparent while the rest of the image (or at least solid parts) should remain white - this makes layering much easier.  Make sure to save your image (upper left of the choices bar) before opening another one.


After you have completed your uploads of all the images you want to layer, you can use GIMP - another FREE program - you will need to download this one.


So first you want to make a place to put your new image.    Change the image size to inches and put in 12.000 in both width and height.  Click on advanced options and choose Transparency in the "Fill With" line.

Next, find the image that will be the bottom layer of your combined image and open it.   Then you will copy it and past into the transparent box.


Now it's time to resize and then move to where you want this image on the page.


Once you have the image in place, go to Layer and click on Anchor Layer.


 Within the Layer tab, you will next find New Layer and click on that.


You will now repeat the process of Opening the file you wish to add, copying and pasting, then resizing and move it to where you want it on the image underneath.


Once everything is in place, you will choose Export from the File menu and then choose the name you wish to save it under and the folder you want to find it in and click save.


 And VOILA!  There is your nicely layered image:)


(Please note that mine is double watermarked so as not to be copied.  You will obviously be able to save a clean image.)

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that you learned something from it!!:)
