Okay Rose, I did a little test,
I opened the psd template which is in color profile sRGB IEC61966-2.1 (on the right in the image below)
Then I created a new document with the color profile of Adobe RGB (199

there is an obvious difference. And I didn't get a warning when I moved the files by dragging them to the new document. So maybe it's that hun

Just a question: Does the preview have to show ALL your elements? Suddenly mine looks so busy ... and there is only 20 elements on.

From the Piggy Re: NDC 2011: Round 2 "Summer Afternoon"

Yep. It's part of the requirements, and definitely a challenge.

Try shrinking your elements down even more. Just going to 90% of the current size will make a huge difference. Remember to take care to proportion things properly, ie: a button should not be bigger than a flower.

Thanx for the advise Toiny. I'll concentrate on that in future. Any more advise will be much appreciated.

sometimes you can cluster your elements on your profile and still show everything to make it look less busy. Does that make sense?

Here's mine. Boy, I had a hard time with this one for some reason! I've got enough "discarded" papers to start another kit!

Yep, I think that's it, I was investigating a bit too and come up with that being the reason. I took some training at Lynda.com and I learned alot about color and best settings, etc. (not all of it stuck though, LOL... good thing I took notes ). Anyhoo... it's too late for me to truly fix it for this kit but I'll be more aware for the next one.

wow the gallery looks amazing and my mouse is exhausted with all the downloading LOL. But loving it pretty stiff competition this week ladies
hang in there if you are still finishing up your kit. something is better than nothing, try having your preview in the works while you are finishing up, then it won't be such a daunting race for the line in the end. And if you don't get it all up at least you'll have something to post
