    Hi gang! @LisaSly and I are updating the forum! I'm using brand new forum software from a company called Invision Power Board. (https://invisioncommunity.com/) I love it! SO much nicer looking than what we previously had. The older forum showing it's age. We started it in 2004, and it's time to move it into the future. I'm really excited to get this new community up and running. If you have ANY questions, feel free to ask away! NOTE, As I did above, you can type in the "@" symbol in front of another members' name to 'tag' them (they'll see it just like they do on Facebook) Talk to you around the water cooler! Leave a post - start a topic - ask a question and have fun. Don't forget to Introduce yourself! Marc

    Here's a ton of cool characters my very own brother @Dave Sylvester created for the PaperToons template pack! I LOVE these characters and use them in my own advertising and Facebook posts! ... these work for flyers, banners, social media.... cups and tShirts too!

    Here's a technique to try when creating your next graphic. Leave a little white space at the bottom of your final graphic and export it as a 'transparent PNG' image. It'll look kind of 3D (the template was taken from "The eCover Creator" template set)

    Instead of just doing images you can also do CUSTOM text. Write your text with TC or any program you can choose the font. Export or save as a transparent .png. Use the "PHOTO EFFECTS.. Because it is an image file ANY font will work. Size should be about the size you want finished. http://www.picturetopeople.org/ They also have lots of text effects. THe only thing is I have found that when the text is black the effects don't show up. Now just import as an image onto your canvas.

    Hi @new light! Yes, I hear you - great suggestion! We're working on a pack that contains different poses. The hard part is creating the "side view" graphics. Like if the character is facing front and also a 3/4 view, then the 'eyes' and other features need to also be front and three quarters view. LOTS of eyes But I'll get my cartoonist brother @Dave Sylvester on it! (right Dave!?) Marc

    The first stumbling block I find is usually what size a canvas size should be. How about you?????

    Hi @DouglasJH hmmmm... this is a great question! If you use an already created Jpg, the image has probably already been downgraded. You won't be able to upgrade / enhance it unless you have a tool like Photoshop. OR, one of my GoTo tools: Pixlr! https://pixlr.com/ I found a great tutorial that may help you. Check it out (http://www.wikihow.com/Improve-Jpeg-Image-Quality

    Hey hey Laughingbirds, Just wanted to say hi and thank Marc for all the amazing help and effort he's put into this software. I love that I no longer have to go to Fiverr or other outsourced places to make super quick graphics. It did take me a bit to get comfortable with the software but it was some of the best time I've ever spent online because now I can go from idea to finished product in a matter of minutes. Excited for the new forum and to see what other people are doing with the software. Aloha Jason
