    what I did in PS was to crop - add a frame and some txt. and I hand moved the mouse when doing that...

    the post cards has been printed. as in printed. not ink-jet, but as if they were in a book. (don't know the english word)

    does that mean, that images, published in a book is a no no?..

    Gandolfi,

    If you're interested in understanding why photoshop is unnecessary for postcards, skim through the postcard exchange threads in this forum.

    If, conversely, you feel too constrained by an analog discussion forum and prefer to use photoshop, perhaps APUG isn't your cup of tea.

    What a wonderful dilema Are you scanning the offset print and posting the scan or just uploading the file you sent to the printer? I guess if it was deemed "forbidden" you could just host the image on your web site and post a link. Either way I'd love to see it so just PM me with it.

    "Unique postcards" - that's an idea..
    Sorry the intended humor of my response wasn't more obvious.

    One of your subsequent posts makes your process more clear. I'd suggest just posting one and taking any resulting "flack", as they may fall outside the strict APUG rules, but still interesting.

    Speaking of "unique" - my grandmother participated in an early form of postcard exchange back in the 1920s. The card stock was leather, and the idea was that each participant hand-painted (or, hand-inked) a one-of original for mailing. A bit tedious, I suspect, but they had lots of time on their hands back then.

    Whoa! Talk about uncalled for. Hope you're just having a bad day and not so nasty, or closed minded, all the time.

    Rock on Gandolfi!
