I think they are really easy and I use mine all the time! however rings and polka dots would be fun if you could figure out a way to do that super simple!

Also I didn't realize you have to "flatten" each set of text you add; I did a set and added 7 words to it and had to "flatten" each word itself instead of it doing it all at once. Is that right or should it do it all at once? I also had a hard time placing the text where I wanted it to AFTER i had typed it (to center the words/move the text box to where I wanted to)

What I'm thinking of doing is setting up a yahoo group for everyone that has purchased the instructions and then that way we can communicate any issues, as well as get access to the new templates & tutorial...After thinking about it last night I realized I will definitely be giving the updated version to past customers that way we are all on the new page
let me know what you think of these images I threw together (in like 5 mins) with the new template...look alright?

The new way is SUPER SIMPLE! I have only done it in photoshop at the moment and I'm planning on moving onto GIMP later today or tomorrow

Wow you did that in 5 min.. It would take me a hour, plus a hour to find the right image. LOL

I'm not sure how to make it easier but there has to be something. I never got the hang of it so I've not used it. I always get frustrated when the images come out way to big and I can't seem to fix it. Maybe more details or a faqs section with problem solving tips.

I haven't purchased the instructions but I'm wondering that one of the issues that I've had with previously purchased image sheets was when I punched them out they were a tad but smaller and had a white ring around the outside. With these instructions, is there a way to avoid that?
And when someone mentioned flattening the text, does your instructions explain how to do that? I'm a big dummy in Adobe and I'm just getting the hang of it now. I use Elements.
BTW - Did you ever think about a "package" deal to get all of your templates? I just looked at your etsy and thought that.

easier, and simpler would be great
I am not too knowledgeable of Adobe Elements--a real dummy
I would also like to know how to make the ring borders and polka dots.

I played around with it when I got it at first but after a few attempt I stopped and haven't touched it for a while now. Guess I should play with it again.

I don't know about the flatten thingy the previous post mention about.
Told you I was a Photoshop Dummy

Keep us posted cause I would like to see if the new instructions will be easier for me

Amanda in this reavamp have you thought of teaching us to put a circle or even better like a cigar band over the background to make alphabet sets....I don`t want to use anyone`s pic here but if I am not explaining it I can pm you a link to the pic.
