Don't know what your trying to post, but, 1. make sure the image is in jpg or gif format
2. don't include any spaces or punctuation in the filename.

Go here (http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/upload_image.html) for further instructions.

Hope this help,
digistyle

Karen,

Ok, you've gone to the image upload page, used the browse feature to locate the image on your computer, clicked the image upload button and the file upload complete page has displayed. On the page should be a path that begins and ends with image tags. If the filename for your image was indian.jpg, the path would look something like this:

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/16-Jun-2001/indian.jpg

NOTE: I left spaces between the "IMG" tags and the path in my example so that the system would not try to post it.

Select and copy the path and tags, then paste it into your post.

Looking forward to seeing your piece.

[edit]How's this for luck!?! This was actually the name for your piece!!! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/eek.gif LOL http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif Just copy my example, paste it in your post, remove the spaces between the tags and the path and you'll be good to go. BTW, nice work on your portrait!

Thank you so very much Digistyle, you're very kind. The first time I checked, I saw your message w/ that little no image icon then it was tho this machine did something on its own and BOOM there he was. I'm going to try here again 'cause if I don't get this I won't ever get anything critiqued.........Karen

Thanks MM.:) This was an image done from a reference photo in a book I had gotten hold of about 4 yrs ago. He was so noble and proud in the photo I had to try to draw him. Probably Joey feels that way, too. I just figured out what your user name refers to, duh. Now I've Got to kill that huge spider behind my monitor! What a day! Thanks for the reply.........Karen

I meant to ask before; was this done in Painter or Paintshop?

Hey there, I did this in some package awhile back, (5 yrs?) I think it was paintbrush. I used a tablet. We've got a whole new system now of course. I have Corel Photo-paint 9 but its not installed. Its been along time since I did any thing digital. Is that package any good? I haven't had the chance to try Painter or Paintshop, which is the best?

I'm a Painter user/fan myself, but I've only tried an evaluation copy of Paintshop Pro. Paintshop Pro is the more affordable of the two, but it didn't impress me enough switch from Painter.

Wow! That's a great looking picture, I think you really captured the expression in his eyes. As for Photshop vs. Painter. . .you can download a trial version of Adobe Photoshop at http://www.adobe.com I use Photoshop Limited Edition and Painter Classic, a package that came with a $100 tablet. The combination has worked pretty well. I like Painter's similarity to real media, and the latter versions use layers (classic doesn't, though). However, I've seen some extremely good pictures with Photoshop, one which I had first mistaken for a photograph. I've seen both produce some great art, so I can't really reccomend one over the other, it depends on the look you want and the depth of your pockets (Photoshop is $600, Painter 6 is $300). Again, excellent picture. :) Keep it up!

Hey MH

Thanks for the info and kind words:D

Photoshop
Painter Classic
Paintshop Pro
Has anyone used or is familiar w/ Corel Photopaint 9? Probably this entire topic has been addressed in another thread, haven't looked for it. Sounds like its a starter package. Well, that's what I have sitting here waiting to be installed, along w/ an antiquated tablet...we'll see what happens.......Karen:p :cat:
