    Paid I Need Help Fixing a Few Very Simple Illustrator Images

    Please, I am not a prejudiced person -- but please do not contact me unless you are a native English speaker. I have been dealing with a very nice gentleman from outside the U.S., but the language barrier cannot be overcome and I am very pressed for time. I have several very basic Illustrator...

    CMYK is HORRIBLE! I need a Pantone color.

    Yes, thanks for correcting me on that. Form does indeed follow function. Funny, I teach Freshman Comp, and you get all these high school students who were trained to write the dreaded "five paragraph essay" -- you know, intro, body-body-body, conclusion. It's sometimes very difficult to explain...

    CMYK is HORRIBLE! I need a Pantone color.

    Folks, these are all great ideas and suggestions. I have an urgent need for a very small quantity right now, so I'm creating and printing them at home for the time being. I'll have more time to futz with it in about two week. My wife likes the CMYK green that's being printed off our regular HP...

    CMYK is HORRIBLE! I need a Pantone color.

    Good feedback, Jeff. I'm leaning toward a local pro shop doing this. Question, and please excuse my ignorance. Is it worth exploring any high-end color laser printing to do this in-house? Are there some color laser printers that would come close? I assume the answer is no, but since you're...

    CMYK is HORRIBLE! I need a Pantone color.

    Hello, Everyone. I am beyond frustrated. I'll just say it. Whoever designed and standardized the CMYK color system should be hunted down, shot, and drawn and quartered. It is just horrific. I have a logo that is a bright neon/fluorescent green. It is Pantone color 39ff14. (Please see the color...

    Paid Why Are My Photos So Enormous on FB and Instagram?

    For the life of me, I don't understand this. I edit a photo in PS, save it as a JPG, then when I post it in Facebook it is the size of Godzilla. So frustrated. Could someone PM me and help me solve this? It's got to be something simple, but this has been frustrating me for months. My name is...

    Using Layer Masks

    John, thanks, appreciate your insights. Yes, text works better for me. I was able to find some articles through Google searches that had step-by-step textual instructions along with screen captures. I didn't do it exactly the way it was done here, but here are two I did last night. I haven't...

    Using Layer Masks

    Here's the latest. I was able to drag and drop the Shamrock onto the red pick. Now, however, I cannot move the Shamrock around. I also change click on it and change the size. The yellow text below does allow me to both change its size and move it around. Thank You, WTH

    Here's another. Why is this Shamrock so huge, and why can't I resize it? Beautiful, huh?

    Using Layer Masks

    Polar, understood, but here's my challenge. I'm an English prof and thus a lifelong textual learner. Almost the instructions I receive are in images and flow-charts. I literally cannot understand these things. It's like Egyptian to me. I understand if I'm beating a dead horse, but I cannot...

    Using Layer Masks

    Hello, Everybody, and happiest of Fourth of July's to all of you. With the holiday, I finally have some time to go back and work on this project, so I've bumped it up to renew the discussion. Sam I Am has been very helpful to me through this whole process, and this forum as a whole has been...

    Masking in Illustrator

    Hawkeye, sorry for my delay. Let me look at the instructional vid from the other poster and see if I can figure it out. I was able to convest the photo you see above into a DXF and then upload it into AI, but it left a few lines. I will post by tomorrow with results. Thanks for your follow-up...
