    Hi Michael and welcome to the family. There is another thread under General Scroll Saw called Portraits using psp9. (Sorry I don't know how to give you redirect). Anyway, check that thread out. It should answer some of your questions.

        I've got a tutorial (6Mbytes) by Andy Deane that I can email you if you like. It does require PaintShop Pro but the concept can be transferred to most graphics programs. This tutorial is not currently available on Andy's website and I'm not sure why.

          Is this the one you mean Mike? http://www.freewebtown.com/80ArtDesigns/page1.html

          I bookmarked it when Gill posted it a week or so back - it's a nice clearly written tutorial ..

            That's a great article! I use PhotoShop instead of PSP but most of the procedures still apply. The part that helped me the most was where he explained how to equate your picture dpi and actual blade sizes to the correct size brush in PSP. I've been using a #3 pen tip size in PhotoShop. I'll try a couple different sizes to see how they compare. I haven't tried any of my new patterns yet but they look good at the resolution and picture size I use.

              Yes, Ian, that's it. Guess I got lazy trying to find it.

                Coyote Software is another option. Ozarkhilbilly and Canadian Scroller both have experience with it. I have it on my PC at home, but haven't spent much time with it yet!

                IF you are looking for a good photo program, google GIMP...it's an open source version of Photoshop that I've been very impressed with (again, have it on my home PC). The best thing is that it's free!

                  I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                  Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                  He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

                  We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
