Half way through a business trip, I’ve just left Amsterdam after yet another couple day “field research” trip – one of a number I’ve made to the City of All Delights over the last few years. I’ve had the opportunity to do research in many cities I’ve been to over the years, but probably none as in depth as the beautiful home of Van Gogh. It’s a city full of canals and houseboats, bicycles, tulips and souvenir wooden shoes. Old men playing chess in the plaza with 2′ tall Kings. Museums. Parks. Windmills. Prostitutes. Water taxis and trolleys.Wa-wa makes a pretty nice cup of hot black stuff for when you’re on the go – and of course, you can grab your paper, your lunch for later, and fill your gas tank at the same time. I like to mix their powdered cappuccino (it’s too sweet to be the “real” stuff) with some rich, dark roast coffee. MMMMM.What’s next for this passionate framer and art lover? At first, she thought she’d sell off all the framing equipment and supplies, but now she’s not so sure.Unless a beginner does not experiment with the tools, there is no point in just reading. Hence it is best to take a photo, make layers and try the tools. It helps to erase any misunderstanding between any two techniques- as in this case it is between clipping mask and clipping path. A Mac-user will need alt key + move cursor over the borders of 2 layers and then click. If done rightly only those areas masked appear as text, the rest of the image remains the same. In case this has not happened, never mind. Re-edit it! It can be done all over again. Both the image and the text can be re-adjusted in the respective layers. Check the palette and see if the font used is visible. If not, make changes. Use a font and size that is clearer.
