Just a quick update. A viewer very kindly told me that tutorial 10 about the clone stamp tool had a problem. So I've pulled the original down and reposted it here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKyO_16j5f0. Oh, and this version is in HD.

Hi Drippy Cat,

I am learning lots from your tutorials and really appreciate them. I have a question about one of your images that I like a lot . I really am impressed with the picture of the girl with the light leak effect and the stars floating over her face. I know how to get the stars effect working but my stars don't have the lovely, randomly soft blur that yours have. Would you be willing to teach how you made that picture? I am attaching a copy of it from your video but I didn't see it talked about in the video.

Many thanks.

Dave

Hi VelvetReflection. Sorry about the delay in getting back to you. Sorry to tell you this but that's not my image. I believe it's an image that comes with Pixelmator. I'd happily take the credit for it but I seriously doubt I'd get away with it!

Hi StevieE. For the overall softening effect I'd try the technique I outlined here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onvVt3_sdCE and then I might try adding another layer underneath the blurred layer, then putting a Stylise -> Comics filter on it and then playing with the layer blend mode and layer opacity to see if that got me closer to the desired effect. The smudge tool as far as I can see does a very similar job to Photoshop. Hope that helps!

What I see ain't what I get (WISAWIG)


Well, I'm pretty new at this program, so maybe there's a simple explanation ... BUT ... I'm getting a bizarre printing error I haven't seen in my 30 years of using Macs. I thought the WYSIWYG problem was solved years ago … but no …


I’m working on an electronic (video) signal-flow diagram in Pixelmator 3.4.2, OS X 10.11.3, composed of rectangular shapes, simple text, and lines (arrows, really). When I did a test print, a lot of content was missing. I got most of the text, some of the lines, and only one of the dozen or so rectangles, and only three of its four sides at that. The items that are missing seem to be mainly the most recent additions. I tried increasing the width of the lines, up to 5 pixels, thinking maybe they were too thin, but that didn't help. The print preview image looks the same, or nearly the same, as the printed output.


I experimented with selecting some items and choosing "Bring to front" before using the print command; this did affect which items were visible, but I couldn't find a setting that made everything in the diagram visible. Large parts were still missing, no matter how I set it.

I'm trying to post some screen shots -- hope it works!

I'll try to post some screen shots - what I see in the program vs. what I get from the printer. Hope it works ...









Thanks,
