    That sounds like a GREAT idea. On a calm night it would be cool to shoot out over the sea and get stars in the sky and off the water.

    You'd have to drive out pretty far from here for that!! Although, you could go the other way and sail out to sea... it gets really dark out there. Of course, you'd need a boat, and a crew...

    I wish I lived closer to a bigger city. I would love to be able to shoot both lights of the big city and a sky full of stars in one night without a whole lot of travel.

    I bet. I live in a mega-troplis. Silence is ... errm, something that doesn't happen, pretty much ever. Not to mention a night sky dark enough to see that many stars ...

  • cut and paste

    We have 5 apple computers, on two of those computers we have a problem cutting and pasting .tifs from illustrator to photoshop. The .tif loses its transparency, and pastes with a white matte. It works fine on our other computers. Does anyone know what preference or setting controls this?

      Not to ignore the question, but I'm curious why you're cutting and pasting a TIFF from Illustrator to Photoshop. I suppose if it's embedded I could understand ... but even then it seems a little odd.

      Maybe it's just me.

        I had to wonder why cut and paste also, Craig. I thought I'd get a drift on the "5 Apple" computers first and pick up the level of the users.

          The designs we're copying and pasting are comprised of both .tif lineart and vector art. We're running OS 10, Illy 10.0.3 and PS 7.0. I've got identical apple pcs that treat .tif files differently.

            And you no longer have the source file of the TIFF line art? And when you say it loses it's transparency are you saying that the whol TIFF has a transparency to it (50% or whatever) or are you saying that the TIFF has been perhaps masked in Illustrator to allow what's behind to show through?

            I'm just trying to make sure I understand what's happening.
