From pages I resize it to any size I want. I don't need Vector graphics to do this.

I just did a card with Clip Art from Dover in my Gallery . I resized it to fit the oval I wanted to use .

Been following the questions about using a Mac with the card making hobby. I love my Mac so much so that if there was a fire it wouldn't be my sewing machine I would grab it would be my Mac! LOL. All kidding aside, I prefer this Mac HANDS DOWN to any PC. There are so few issues to deal with compared to a PC. But, I have had trouble trying to figure out how to upload pics from my camera to the Mac and then on up to SCS. I guess its easy but I just don't do it enough to give advice. Another thing is when I bought the DVD from Crafty Secrets I had a real hard time adjusting the size to print. They use PhotoShop but I don't think the standard Mac has that loaded. May be wrong here but I don't think so. Therefore my question to Barbara Jay is this: my Mac is 4 years old, Snow Leopard, and are you aware of a program on it to do color adjustments and sizing etc. etc.? I know, I know, I should call Mac but ahhhhh I just don't wanna talk to some guy about this unless its absolutely necessary. LIke I said, I don't spend a lot of time on the computer trying to figure everything out. Rather be cleaning, or in art room or eating chocolate. LOL. Thanks.
