    Good job

    Nice stuff. I haven't made the plunge (bought the software) but I think I'll take the plunge.

    Where do you get your graphics?

    Working with the software is great because it can do lots of things with text, but where are you guys getting the images you are putting in the logos?

    I know there are tons of clip art CD/DVDs out there. Anyone have any suggestions as to one to buy that has royalty free images?

    Graphics

    It is kind of tough because even stuff that you buy on CD's etc. usually specifically say that you can't use them in a logo....grrrr.

    Look for products like Click Art Infinity by Broderbund, PrintShop or Print Master on the sales tables at your favorite office supply. They not only have clipart, but additional fonts and font effects that you can't do easily with TLC .

    You can look at the Resource & Recommendations forum for help with finding images.

    What I find interesting is the same images will show up any number of places and some will have restrictions and some will not. :confused:

    Most of you mentioned clipart and restrictions. I have run into that from time to time and have contacted the company that has the clipart that I want to use. Its a grey area but it can be done, what you need to do is to get a letter from the company stating you can use it and for what purpose so you can cover your @@@@

    Try the Canadian company Hemera. They produce software called PhotoObjects and it's not expensive. All the clipart/photos in the collections are royalty/copyright free.

    I've had a few of their collections for some years now and I emailed them telling them what a PITA it was having to swap Cd's all the time. I got a reply back telling me how to copy all the data to the hard drive and to access it from there, worked a treat.
    If you want the details let me know :)

    Good cross platform information

    This is a bit long winded but it sure as hell beats swapping CD's all the time, plus it has the added benefit of not having any wear and tear on your originals.

    "Here are the instructions on how to copy an image collection to the hard
    drive for a cd collection:

    1. Ideally create one folder in which all the cds will be copied to. So for
    example, create a folder on your C drive called c:\HemeraCollection

    2. Then for each cd, please create a subfolder under that main folder. So
    for example, for cd#2 create a subfolder called cd2 which would leave you
    with the path c:\HemeraCollection\cd2

    3. On each content cd, there is an hpi folder. Copy the hpi folder(and all
    its contents) from each cd into their respecitve subfolder. So for example
    for cd#2, copy the hpi folder into c:\HemeraCollection\cd2 which leaves you
    with the path c:\HemeraCollection\cd2\hpi where all the images for cd#2 are
    in the hpi folder.

    4. Then in the application, please go to the Edit menu and choose the
    Options menu(Windows)/Preferences menu(Mac) and then select the CD-ROM
    Drives tab.

    5. Then click the Add button and choose the full path(including the hpi
    folder) for each cd. So for example, click Add and then choose the path
    c:\HemeraCollection\cd2\hpi and then click Add for each other cd and add its
    hpi path.

    Here are the instructions on how to copy an image collection to the hard
    drive for a DVD collection:

    1. Ideally create one folder in which all the cds will be copied to. So for
    example, create a folder on your C drive called c:\HemeraCollection

    2. Then for each DVD, please create a subfolder under that main folder. So
    for example, for DVD#2 create a subfolder called DVD2 which would leave you
    with the path c:\HemeraCollection\DVD2

    3. On each DVD, there is an hpi folder. Copy the hpi folder(and all its
    contents) from each DVD into their respecitve subfolder. So for example for
    DVD#2, copy the hpi folder into c:\HemeraCollection\DVD2 which leaves you
    with the path c:\HemeraCollection\DVD2\hpi.

    4. Then in the application, please go to the Edit menu and choose the
    Options menu(Windows)/Preferences menu(Mac) and then select the CD-ROM
    Drives tab.

    5. Then you will see that under the hpi folder for each dvd, there are
    folder such as disk1, disk2, etc. Click the Add button and choose the full
    path for each disk folder. So for example, click Add and then choose the
    path c:\HemeraCollection\DVD2\hpi\disk1 and then click Add for each other
    disk folder for that DVD. Then repeat this for all other dvd's

    Copying the contents of a cd collection to a dvd:

    1. On the DVD create an folder called HPI on the root of the DVD.
    2. Create subfolders called disk1, disk2, disk3, etc. where disk1 will
    contain the contents for cd1, disk2 will contain the contents for cd2, etc.

    3. Then look for the hpi folder that can be found on each cd. Copy the
    contents that are found in the hpi folder to the respective disk subfolder
    that was created on the dvd. So for example, insert cd#2 into your cd-rom
    drive. open up the hpi folder found on that cd and copy all the images found
    under that hpi folder. Then paste those images onto the DVD at the location
    HPI\disk2 so that all the images are placed directly inder the disk2 folder.
    Then proceed to do the same for the other cd's.

    4. Then burn the dvd and you should be able to use that instead of the cd's.
    Just note that many of our collections would require more than one DVD so if
    only cd's 1-5 fit on the first DVD, then on the 2nd DVD, create an HPI
    folder again and start again at disk1 and in this case, copy the contents of
    cd#6 into disk1, cd#7 into disk2, etc."

    That should keep you busy for the weekend Cybrnetico !!! :)

    LOL ................
    I've just had a look at your website and see that you used TLC to create home page logo. What file format and resolution did you save the logo to ??
    The reason I ask is coz the logo's resolution is not the best (my monitor is 19" at 1280 x 960 Nvidia gForce FX 5800).
    I'm sure if you re-save it as a high resolution .tiff the web resolution will improve dramatically.

    well made that logo about two years ago....I lost the tlc file, but it wasn't meant for 1280x960 resolution...1024x768 tops.....

    when i created those images, i bared in mind that people still used dial-up, now its seems DSL is the norm nowadays. I used webstyle 3 to create the rest of the page.

    is your Nvidia an AGP or the new PCI Express?
