Saving scans of Nesties to use for measuring digi stamps
 
This no doubt is a dumb question, but I am not a computer techie :oops:

I want to scan my Nesties so I can use them to adjust the size of digi stamps or cut files so they fit inside the Nestie shape.

Where and how should I save the scans so they are sort of transparent so I can see if the digi stamp or cut file will fit inside of the Nestie shape?

I think I need to be able to drag the digi or the nestie over the other to see if it will fit

Then I will either print the digi image or cut the file image and use my CuttleBug and a Nestie to cut and frame it

Does this make sense ?

Thanks

Barbara Jay

Barbara Jay if you want to make your image transparent. Here's a good starter Google search term- paint shop pro how to make an image transparent. I used paint shop pro because it came off the the top of my head. :) Instead of using paint shop pro just substitute it for your graphics program such as photoshop how to make an image transparent. A lot of times it helps to write the version too like photoshop X4 how to make an image transparent.

Here's an example search I did using Google Images- https://www.google.com/search?q=pain...OZOQ8wTDuIDADA

I hope that wasn't confusing.

You will want to save your image as a PNG to make a nice transparent background. Most digi stamps are PNG.

I have a Mac and there is no Paint-shop Pro for a Mac.
But I have PSE and the best of intentions to learn to use it ;)
