    Thank you for your answer PrintDriver. Seems like I was misinformed. I'll probably have to buy another printer that can print on thicker card stock then. Do you have any suggestions as to what printer...

    Thanks.

    I was testing the Font Suitcase and seems to be screwing with my Chrome bowsers...after some googling--looks like its a known issue. FEX it is then.

    Thanks Garricks....

  • How do I get the look of this photo?

    Am I the only jackass that thinks there is something EXTRA about this photo. Was this look achieved by just the flash and lighting? Or is there some kind of filter or effect to make the colors and face look kind of cartoony, bright(unnatural). If someone has a clue what was done to this photo to give it the look it has, I would greatly appreciate your reply.
    Thanks.

          start with the basic tutorials to learn photoshop, then move on to the more advanced stuff, halfway down on that page is a tutorial for photos. I can honestly tell ya nothing much was done to the image you posted, maybe a slight dodge/burn in some areas, and some highliting, but thats it, and those are all very basic photoshop techniques. hope that helps

            It just looks like it was the photography that makes the picture look the way it does. You can achieve that look through lighting techniques and quality of equipment. I'm not a photographer, so I can't get more detailed than that, unfortunately. I don't see too much 'photoshop' except for possibly some adjustments in brightness, saturation, etc.

              yeah, that look was done in a photo studio with a lot of soft lighting.
              you can recreate that effect in photoshop by using the airbrush tool, however that technique isn't for beginners.

                Either all that or hire a really good portrait illustrator/painter.
                The jpg is too low res to tell if it is a soft photo or a really good airbrush painting.

                Is that a CD cover? Check who did the cover art and run a web search on the name. Maybe that'll give you a clue.
