    Thanks all, I was just thinking it would be nice to see some grain on the pattern prior to cutting.

    Or ... find a pic of your favorite piece of wood then select and paste your pattern over the image. If you then delete all the white in your pattern it's a simulated cutting because the black will remain. I hope that makes sense. LOL

    If you are using Photoshop you can generate patterns to use as a fill with the paintbucket (or any tool) by using Filter>PatternMaker.

    This is on Photoshop CS - I'm guessing other versions will be similar.

    One easy source of wood backgrounds is just to google for wood + background and you'll find quite a lot of pages with free background tiles for webpages. This is just one example http://www.allfreebackgrounds.com/ba...oods.htm~tiles

    Just save the tile, load it into photoshop, generate the pattern, save it and you have a "wood fill".

    Hope this makes sense...

    Question about image background?

    I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to make a filler for paintshop, coreldraw, or adobe photoshop that looks like wood. I know there is going to be a difference when you cut it out of wood but just so you get the idea of what a portrait would look like when it is on baltic birch. I was also wondering about doing this for intarsia so you could see what grain direction looks the best. I know I have a few people that would like to see what it would look like before it is cut out of wood. I would rather do this before I cut a special portrait out for someone and then they don't like it, then I have a portrait of someone I don't even know hanging on my wall. I guess i could just tell everyone when they come over that it is our long lost uncle ted.

    Twenty years in electronics retail and here is a quick dirty way to tell the difference:
    a fast blow will only have the wire element. Slow blow almost always has some extra structure that will be left behind after the fuse blows.
    Secondly, there is a series of three letter engraved on one...

    They look like David Spielmann's Designs to me. I will check my library this evening, but I bet you already that they are from one of his pattern books.

    I found this information on fuses in general.

    Blowing type. Fast-blow fuses will blow as soon as the current reaches the fuse's amperage rating, while slow-blow fuses are designed to tolerate a large number of startup surges and modest short-term overloads without blowing.
