Thank you for this thread. Those tips are great. I am nota designer, but as a scrapper I know it is disappointing to DL a kit and find the elements either poor quality or sized wrong.
Plus I used your advice of adding a stroke on an extraction I did for a layout, and it was the best extraction I have ever done.
Thank you for the tips.

Kimberly Party Help Dascani - that's me! I didn't technically say that "design help" was my middle name

Sometimes if you size an element down you can get rid of a bit of blurriness too. But you don't want to size down too much because then you have the problem of your element being too small but quite often you can get away with a little bit of downsizing.

OK ... Now that we're waiting on the results of round 2, I need to ask a geeky question ... or maybe not so geeky. I work in Photoshop CS (not Elements) and I have worked in both web space graphics AND print (no wonder I need to see a psychiatrist) ... yes, the geek is laying some groundwork for her question. What about color gamut? PS has a handy way of checking this (View > Gamut Warning). Is this something one needs to be cognizant of for digital scrapbooking kits? I tried my best to check for this (especially in this last kit), but went nuts trying to fix my items since I was using a palette that was very heavily saturated ... and I'm sure I must have missed this check on some of my items, but was to the point of "oh well."

Oops ... forgot to add ... I am more than happy to provide the booze if not the recipes for some deadly drinks to get us through to the next round ...
