Or for me, at the moment. It was working fine yesterday, though. Server maintenance, maybe?

^ Great stuff, J!

This is amazing ITL - I love how you've got the colours to blend. Is there a larger version of it anywhere?

Thanks!

And that's the only size I made - I generally make my work 640 pixels wide to conform to the forum guidelines.

Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

I like to work as large as humanly possible (for the precision) and only when finished shrink the image to fit whatever forum I need... but I *keep* the original full size Photoshop files so I can go back, if necessary, and tweak them (or use their elements elsewhere).

I do worked that way at times, but as I have a tendency to keep tinkering with a 'shop once I've shrunk it to the 640px size, the definitive version is rarely the larger one.

For example - the "train station" picture was shrunk to 640px before I added the futuristic cityscape in the top-left corner and the blurry Spock on the right. I also tinkered with the colours and shading.

Sloppy, I know. *shrug*

Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

^ I tend not to find too many of the images I want above the 600px margin, which is very annoying if I want to make a wallpaper.

Aww thank you Gary. I am glad you liked the fiddle. If you knew me well enough, you would know that I hate Harry Kim with compete and utter compassion. So just to have him on one of my fiddles is amazing enough.

But thank you so much for your compliments, they drive the Muse. Thanks.
Hatred of Harry with complete and utter compassion? Wow--that's some major anger packing! You wouldn't know it from the job you did. Seriously, it probably would typify Harry's ultimate wish... to be with Seven and completely at ease (at least above the waist--LOL).

Brilliant! How'd you think that up? I love it... the Kirk era Enterprise crew along with the bearded Mirror Spock commuting by train to New York, via Delta Vega. I also like the touch of the brainless Spock in the background.

I was just looking at some screencaps of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and thought that the train station could do with a bit of multi-era/universe Trek slapped on there.

LOL, yeah.. those are some hateful words, and i am not really a hateful person but Harry Kim is a Captain Ass Kisser and he....well.. I just don't want to get into it.. hahahaha

But thank you, it is one of my favorite fiddles I have done. It came out so well and am proud of it.

I know what you mean... sometimes certain scenes trigger associations for me too. But I've never acted on them. I'll have to see what comes up next.

Yeah, he certainly was... a bit over the top. But still a likable guy in a naive kind of way. If you're up for it, consider modifying his side burn to a "Star Trek point". That would add a really nice touch.
