    It looks like several different photos (or different parts of the same photo) just rotated and cropped and then stacked on top of each other.

    Welcome. I come from 20+ years of prepress and design in sheetfed offset, but have been in the corrugated industry since 2012.

    Reply to Setup for 4 panel DL flyer/brochure
    Honestly, I wouldn't worry about the panels being a different size. True, they will need to be, but the size difference is very small. If you use decent margins, you will be fine doing them all the same...

    Is this a gate fold, an accordion fold, a roll fold, etc.? Depending on how it's folded, each of the panels will need to be sized just a bit differently from the next.

  • I need antique art

    Does anyone know where I can find baroque or antique floral art? I want to make some vitage looking stuff but the only things I can find are mail-order only.

    Try looking in flea markets... you might find something there that you could scan in and recreate using streamline...good luck

      You would be surprised what you could find in the wallpaper section of menards--they have HUGE catalogs that are just a treat to look at.

      Try that first and then Ill give you some more hints :P

        Beware of copyrights.

        Actual pre-1930's stuff would probably be okay but copying wallpaper patterns...rather iffy. Wallpaper can be inspirational though.

        Dover clipart books have a lot of really cool Victorian stuff. Usually royalty free depending on how much you use and what for. They may even have disks now...maybe.

          At my last job, we had a set of CDs from "Art Explosion " that had a lot of traditional and retro art clips like you are describing. I don't think this cost very much and I think it is still being sold.

            Yeah Viki, it's still being sold. They are up to 780,000 pieces now on oh, maybe 16 CD's...A lot of it is way to modern. At least in the older set I've seen recently. And those paths sure are messy in the "vector" art. Someone did a lot of nothing with Streamline set for hit or miss. Nasty.

              Dover worked

              I checked out the Dover series and ordered a couple cd's. Thanks for all the help everyone!
