    Default Putting The Name Of Your Orchid On A Picture using Photoshop

    I spent right at 12 hours trying to figure out how to put the name of the Orchid on the picture of the same Orchid. I had really great help from oc-jim and Bikerdoc709.So I put together a final list of how toos and hope this might help anybody that is interested in doing that . Bear in mine the info deals with my Mac and Photoshop 7 although I think it will apply to Pc's and Photoshop CS So here it is:

    Putting the Name of Your Orchid On Your Orchid Picture

    1. Put whatever Orchid picture you wish to put in the OrchidTalk forum, on your computer’s desk top.

    2. Then drag it into Photoshop 7.

    3. When the picture comes up, click on the T (text button in the middle of the “TOLL BOX”).

    4. Adjust the font (I use Georgia), Click on Bold, then click on 72 pt, then click on sharp, then click on center text (middle), then click on color you want ( I think white comes out the best).

    5. Then drag and make a rectangle of the size you want that’s big enough to cover the name of the orchid and put it where it will be visible away from the flowers – either top or bottom or on the side. Then type in the name of the Orchid inside the rectangle.

    6. Hit the check markthat is just left of “File Browser” and which name is “commit any current edits”.

    7. Then go up to “file” and scroll down and hit “Save for Web”.

    8. Wait for it to come up and then go to ”Image Size’ and click on it and under “New Size Width” change the number to 1024.

    9. Then hit “apply”.

    10. Then hit save for web.

    11. Hit save when “save optimized as” comes up

    12. After that your picture will come up and then hit “don’t save”.

    13. The picture will then go to the desk top as an icon.

    14. Now click on the icon and scroll down to Image Size and change the width from 1024 to 700 and then hit ok. (Make sure it is 1024 before changing it to 700).

    15. Then close the picture and hit save.

    16. Now you are ready to put the photo with its name into the OrchidTalk forum.

    Default Free Software Subsitute For Photoshop

    Hey Ron-NY------- Ask & it will be answered!!!!!and also for those who do not have access to Photoshop ,there is Microsoft paint.

    or for the Open Source Kids out there:

    * Seashore (MAC - Paint clone)
    * GIMP (MAC/PC/LINUX)

    the last 2 are free to download & GIMP is as good as if not better than Photoshop.

    same image/text layer principles apply.
