I wish to have a drawing that I can print out on two 8.5 x 11.0 inches and have them taped together to make one physical 8.5 x 22.0 inches. This drawing will be the basis for assembling an electrical wiring harness that will fit the project pre assembled and without a hassle.


The size of the end project is just fine at 8.5 x 22" but I wish to use the dimensional tool to illustrate in INCHES the various lengths. The actual length of the project is around 50 feet. I don't want a 50 foot blueprint obviously.How do I accomplish this so that the actual printout is the size I want BUT the dimensions show as inches or feet and inches or any unit that I know are representing inches?

My problem is trying to determine how to depict dimensions that are a great deal smaller than the actual printout will be. So, basically I need to know how to indicate to Corel the size of the drawing, the units I should use and really basic type questions. I obviously am far from proficient in Corel but simply do not have the time to learn Corel for this single mini project.

Please ask any questions you need to have answered for clarification.

paint sad face No More Paint?
With the news of MS Paint being killed "deprecated", I just had to express my feelings in the only appropriate way I could... I mean, it's certainly not a great image editor at all, but at least you could count on it being available on any Windows system. Even when I've had much better tools at hand, it was still a frequent go-to for really quick-and-dirty screen grab cropping and annotating.

How do you feel about this? Do you mourn the loss or feel it's long overdue?

Andrew:
There's literally no risk associated with keeping it, so not sure why Microsoft is even considering removing it.

Well, that's not completely true... There are always maintenance costs for something like that. Even if new features are stopped, there's still a chance that changes in the OS or APIs would necessitate updates to the program, or at the very least, ongoing QA to verify that other updates didn't cause a problem. Plus, when there's something new like Paint 3D, keeping the original Paint around could stop people from switching over.

Hey... now that I'm thinking about it more... I didn't even know that Paint 3D existed until I saw the news yesterday about Paint being killed... Maybe this was all just a brilliant marketing stunt for Paint 3D?!

Hi,

Is it possible to create colour libraries patterns in Adobe Creative Cloud, and then they appear in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Sketch, and Adobe Comp?

I'm constantly working on repeat client projects and I have to keep going back to their logo to sample their default color. I'm sure Adobe Creative Cloud has a better way of managing this across all of their software?

How can I make it so logos that I create fit scale recommended by theme makers? Like 190px x 60px...is there software or something I can use rather than over and over again making a picture smaller/bigger until I get it right?

Thanks

I need to use Photoshop CC to elect an object and place a darker border around it.

For example, this image...

How do I do this in an automated way? I do not want to draw the lines myself, with the line tool.

Thanks.

I'm looking for unique colorful icons to use for graphic design.

I saw this video online and the website was originally from TypeScript. When I go to TypeScripts' website its different. In the .gif was once there website.

Can someone explain to me how they made the clouds animate in the background? What tools were possibly used? And the best method to try and recreate it?

I have an 85 page Word Document with 85 images, and when I convert it to PDF the file size becomes 1.33 GB!

That is totally unacceptable.

I am flummoxed that the file could never be so huge. These image are in the size range of 1MB to 10 MB.

Are there different file formats I could use that convert better?

How do I reduce the resolution to those images? I am hoping for a Word feature that lets me reduce resolution inside Word versus me needing to handle each image outside of Word, which will take the whole day.

Thanks.

Is there an easy way without using the WWW to get background/foreground colors from the image itself that I am editing?

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

I need to adjust image sizes manually for the rime being, since I do not yet know how to maintain aspect ratio on size reduction.

So, I need some measurement tool for the X and for the Y.

Does that exist?

I see that neat feature too Place an image, but when I try and shrink if from the top corner, the aspect ration changes, making the image useless.

How do I adjust the size and force to to remain true?

Thanks

I can use Photoshop CC to create a frame, but now I need to insert an image into it. How do I do this from an existing image file? Is there a way to make the frame adjust to the aspect ration of the image file?

I have a wide angle view of a map and need to put a circle (or square) round a small piece of it and over the enlarged detail on the unimportant part of the map.

How do I do this?

I can use Fuzzy Select to find the colored areas I want. How do I then add a dark order to that region?

Right now, it just twinkles to show it is active...so how do I transition to actually use that region?

I saw a video which had a long list of optional tools to be used in the Layers window, but I only see a few...

I would like to buy a selfie stick for my iPhone 6 if it let me take pictures in a different perspective, and not of myself.

Sometimes, I want to be a few feet taller.

Can it be used for this?

What is the longest one I could get?

Can it secure my phone safely?

Thanks

I would like the ability to come back that image and update any element which I add today. Does each event go in its own layer?

Or, is there another way to be able to edit, for example, a line? I may want to reduce the line width a month from now...

Thanks.

On the following advertisement, I see an item in the picture that does not appear in the list of items at the bottom of the page...

Any idea what it is?

See attached image...

ALSO, I have a question about the size of the memory card(s). I see this has two at 16GB each. I also see a refurbished camera with a single 64 GB card.

Can you give me some ice how fast a 16GB card would fit with this camera? Let's say, distant shots require me the max resolution and file size per pic.

How many would a 16BG card hold?

Thanks

I see how to use Gimp for Mac to draw a line, but it's to thick. I want 1 pixel.

I tried using the Brush editor with no luck.

What's the trick?

I have Gimp 2.8.22 (Mac)

On one image.

How do I do this? I assume a new Layer would be smart, but can not get this to work.

They are different heights and will need slight adjustments to dimensions.

This one does not work...

I do not see the second image...

I am looking for the best flexibility for the money. I see it may cost upward of $600 to get a complete setup for the Nikon Coolpix P900.

What broader options to I have? It seems, multiple lenses would be useful. Like this one:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CQJHJ2E/ref=s9_acsd_top_hd_bw_bCf6T_c_x_3_w?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-4&pf_rd_r=7Q91KRWBTPT978JNBWFR&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=87d2a035-5f2a-50a4-93d7-a2960559aa53&pf_rd_i=3017941

And if I were to buy a model that was state of the art 3 or 5 years ago, I wold expect to see more of them selling used on Ebay.

Suggestions?

Thanks

I tried the trick with a telescope and shooting into the eye piece from my cell phone camera and my Canon. This did not work for me at all. Also, the act of pushing the button to take the picture throws the image.

I think I need to pony up some cash and get a digital camera I can use to shoot buildings at about 3-4 miles. I do not need great detail, like if it is some kind of product shot, though.

I need an "all in one" solution. Maybe even with different lenses.

I  do not want to buy new, though. I am happy getting used equipment at a discount. Especially since the odd are higher I could get all the various accessories,like remote trigger and extra lens(es) at one price.

Please give me some idea of the camera I could consider. It should be a model that is a 2-5 years old, that may have been pricey in its day, but it behind the curve by today's top standards.

These are recreational pictures I will take for my interest in architecture, and not in any way professional, but maybe the camera would be a former professional grade some years ago.

Thanks..

When I check eBay for:

4" aperture refractor telescope

I see interesting stuff, that is $150 or higher. But at the bottom I see prices around $60.

For example:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Astronomical-Refractor-Telescope-w-Phone-Mount-Adapter-Kids-Toy-Fast-Free-Ship-/172455991465?hash=item28272d98a9:g:TlgAAOSwA3dYKmzX

Can I photograph a building that's 3 miles away with this? Or is this for the star-gazing only?

Thanks.
