Hi Brandi.  I just wondered if you could share what program or software that you use to make those beautiful pictures of Haleigh and others.  Like I mentioned, I have my first granddaughter and she is 5 months old and I would like to maybe make a notebood with her pictures using borders and things like you use because they just really add to a picture.  Thank you for replying.  I do not expect you to give away any "secrets" just wondering about trying to do some on a personal level for her.  HUGS!!

Hi SADVAL2!

Congratulations on your granddaughter!

I use many graphics apps, sometimes several on just one image I make. I primarily use paint shop pro (a rather old version) and animation shop for animations. I also use photoshop elements, image ready and ulead gif animator. That's a lot of software, and it is not inexpensive. I am still learning every day and consider myself a beginner. There are many basic things I still have to learn how to do. I spend many hours every day working on images.

I did a little googling to help answer your questions last night and came upon this site that I think may be helpful to you for what you want to do: http://graphicssoft.about.com/od/digitalscrapbooking/Digital_Scrapbooking_Scrapbooking_with_a_Computer.htm

It sounds like this is something you'd like to learn and be able to use as you watch your granddaughter grow up.  If, on the other hand, you ever have a set of pictures that you'd like me to design an image for, I'd be happy to do it for you. My email is brandibb @ gmail. com and you can send me the pictures and instructions if you'd like.

I hope this helps you. Graphics are fun and very time-consuming and very addictive for me. LOL But I LOVE doing them! I hope you get bitten by the bug and get as much enjoyment out of making them as I do.

~Brandi
Thank you so much!!  I really appreciate you taking your time to provide me additional information.  I hope I will be able to do a little of this.  I so appreciate your offer to design an image of some of her pictures.  That is so sweet and kind of you.  I just really admire so much all of your work.
I have followed Haleigh's case from the beginning and am so worried about her.  It is just mind boggling all of the information I have read.  She is so precious and you have done a beautiful job of showcasing her beauty. 
Take care & best wishes to you.  Maybe I will drop you a note about my progress!!!!

I have been given permission to offer avatars that I create for my monkey friends too!

I have begun creating avatars for Valentine's Day that I dressed for Christmas and for those who have asked me to create works for them.

In this thread, I will post the ones I have created and you may also ask for decorations from me. I am happy to take requests! I love making them.

My avatars are just suggestions, if you like them, use them, if you want to use something else, feel free to do so! We have other great avatar makers here on Scared Monkeys. Be sure to make use of us all!  I will post the URL to each avatar with the picture so it will be easy for you to use it if you want.

I will begin posting the Valentine avatars on Monday, December 29, 2008.

Instructions for changing avatars:
Click on Profile at the top of this page, then go to "Forum Profile Information" on the left ... then under Picture, click the "I will upload my own picture" option and add the URL of the avatar to it. Then scroll down to the bottom and click the "Change profile" button. And, voila! Your avatar is updated.


In the meantime, I would like to offer you my best wishes for the new year!

Here is my inspiration for your avatar. I used the outline of the state of Kentucky and a cute animated frog for you. I did not know your favorite colors to use, so I made several color choices. Let me know what you think:

If you can a frog that you want to use (I don't know what a southern grammy frog is!) then I'll put it on a purple themed avatar.

I spent 2 hours making these. I don't think I have time today to do any more. I have out of town company coming tomorrow and my house needs cleaning badly! LOL

But post me the frog image you want incorporated into an avatar and I'll fix you up in purple.

Maybe you like these? Wink

I took a cleaning break and made these two that are waving, since it sounds like you kind of want to keep the avatar you are using. Made them wave, then put a purple background for them, animated the hat ribbon to make it sparkle, then added a frame for one of them.

Click on Profile at the top of this page, then go to "Forum Profile Information" on the left ... then under Picture, click the "I will upload my own picture" option and add the URL of the avatar to it. Then scroll down to the bottom and click the "Change profile" button. And, voila! Your avatar is updated.

Brandi,
 You do such beautiful work! I think it's time I got dressed and hope you can help me when you have time. I saw what you did for Glad with the waving frog and love it. I am also from Ky. and if she is not going to use the map of Ky. could I use that as my background? I am a big Ky. Wildcat Basketball fan ,so I would like my Avatar to be a cat. I saw the cutest cat with earphones on swaying to the music and it would be perfect if you could find it. I am not very computer savvy so I may need help claiming it.I hope I am not asking for too much.Please let me know if I am and I will adjust. There is no rush and TYIA for your help.
                       Blessings,
                        Blu

Cool! I saved the artwork pieces I used for g2b today and got to use them for you!

I thought blue was the best for you, considering your screen name, and put this together for you from an animation I found of a cat with headphones. Not sure if this is the one you were thinking of, but I think it's cute! I cropped it to fit onto the avatar.

Let me know what you think! (I saved a couple of other cats with headphones in case this is not what you want.)

Oh Brandi they are all perfect and exactly what I wanted.You outdid yourself tonight.I was not expecting your response so quickly. It is hard to pick a favorite,but I especially like the one that has the eyes that blink. I will work on claiming it in the morning as I am somewhat computer challenged.Thank you so much for all you do for so many of us. Enjoy your company.

This is how to use the blinking one (first of these two) as an avatar:

Click on Profile at the top of this page, then go to "Forum Profile Information" on the left ... then under Picture, click the "I will upload my own picture" option and add the URL of the avatar to it. Then scroll down to the bottom and click the "Change profile" button. And, voila! Your avatar is updated.

The URL in this case to use is: http://i380.photobucket.com/albums/oo242/Brandi-Monkey/bluemonkey-cat2.gif
