Batman...you the man   :D ...

I saw this post, thought I will bookmark it for future reference...just in case I might need it  :whistle:.  Oh man, am I glad I did that  ^-^!!! Got a commission yesterday... I first tried on my own...no success...then remembered about this tutorial here... I have Photoshop Elements 9.  Your explanation, step by step...simply perfect!... I did that, saved it...will do the printing tomorrow... You seriously deserve a star for explaining it in such detail.   :thankyou:  :thankyou:  :thankyou:  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Batman!!!


Your instructions are amazing because I got it to work!!! This is huge for me because though I've been using picassa and the poster option for tiling, in order for me to even do so, I've had to take a pic of the template just to get it into picassa...and then, it comes out a little bigger than I want for watercolors...great for the oils but with the watercolors, all I wanted to be able to do was to make it fit into an 8-1/2 x 11 paper...I don't know what A4 paper is nor do I know its size but if different from my size paper, that could be what's giving me the problem...and this solves it!  I can't believe you'd made sense of my "problems!"   :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou:  and  :flowers:

Nina, you just click "Take a Snapshot" and it turns a tick on to the left. Next time you drop down the menu it is automatically there.

Thanks Nolan for sending me to this post!!!!  Batman the instructions were great.  This also works in PhotoImpact Draw.  Took me a few minutes to figure out but found it!!!!  Also, downloaded Picasa.  Boy this is wonderful.

I have been using the free program called Poster It! Work pretty well for me. What I usually do is to save a B&W copy of the photo as a jpeg in my Windows picture file of reference photos. Then I just upload it into Poster It!, adjust the size for what I need (they have a print preview function) and print it out.
