When I saw that we were to use Julie O's "Feelin' Welcome" kit for this layout, my mind immediately free associated to Lady Liberty, the symbol of "Feelin' Welcome" to my parents & grandparents and countless other new immigrants over the years. Photographs were taken during my kids summer trip to NYC.


Kit is SAS Welcome Kit by JulieO http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/st...roducts_id=276

So I spent the day fudging around with shadows... ;-)
Unfortunately Print Shop does not give much in the way of editing drop shadows -- rather click with mouse & move... by eyeball... manually... so... these are the smallest I could get them without completely removing them... I can however alter how diffuse the edges are & how solid/transparent they are. Any suggestions on what direction to take? (And I did fix the direction of the shadow on the torn paper -- even though I had it set to lower right [the default], apparently it set it to the lower right of the element as it would appear in its original orientation -- this torn paper had been horizontal in the original kit -- so - to get it to lower right, I had to set it to lower left... go figure?)

JUDGE- The shadow on the torn edge looks much better & now goes all the way to the bottom of the paper. I would try to play around with the transparency of the shadows. They still look too dark & that might help. I've never used Print Shop though, so I don't know...maybe it won't help. :p

JUDGE - This layout is better than the first submission. About Print Shop.... hmmmm, I'm not really familiar enough to give specific instruction about this program. I'm assuming it doesn't have layers, correct? Some of the lower-cost programs are really limited in their capabilities and you don't have a lot of control over that. I'm not sure there's a way around it. I know, this is not that helpful. Sorry!

JUDGE - that's such a shame that you're so limited with your program. Given that, changing the transparency to a lighter shade should work for your layout.

Judge: You did a great job with the shadows. I am also not familiair with print shop. But I agree with the others try to lighten them. You also can look at the program Gimp. it is an opensource photoshop like program.
