Getting my Head around PS cs6 #InWorldz

For almost 11 yrs now I have been a content creator for virtual worlds, when I began in #Secondlife February 2006, I tried photoshop, but just could not get my head around it, then I found paint.net even with that it took me a while to learn about layers & I was always aware that there was only so much that I could do with the program, even with the plugins for brushes & effects. I knew that if I could just use #photoshop then my textures, therefore my designs, would be so much better. I did try Gimp as i heard that was very like photoshop, but I would open it up see the 3 windows & quickly close it again. I have tried photoshop a few times over the years & have never felt as comfortable with it as i do using paint.net. However I think all that is about to change with the PS Cs6. I don’t know why but suddenly its beginning to make sense to me. I am comfortable with the interface though its a lot harder than the one I am used to with #paint.net, I don’t feel as overwhelmed by it as I once did. There are 1000’s of tuts on youtube on how to do things & I can hardly wait to begin designing my very 1st item of clothing with this wonderful program. I love all of the brushes I have found Free & installed. I love playing about with them all & seeing the wonderful effects I can use on my textures. For years I have gone with ‘You can’t teach an old dog new tricks’ now its ‘Your never too old to learn’ I put it all down to my faith in LOA which has literally changed my life since I became a deliberate creator of my own reality. There is Nothing I cannot be, or do, or have!

The Freebie Ring #InWorldz

A few years ago, after the freebies were removed from IDI (welcome center), Wolf-Tek created the Freebie Ring. I have always used it dotted around my region & it has brought lots of residents in to it. However there are only a handful of Merchants/land owners actually using it. Considering that the main cry by most in IW is that there are no people about, or ‘no one ever comes to my region’ it really surprises me that there are not more using this vital FREE tool for bringing residents to your Region. It is so easy to set up & use, there is a website where Residents can look to see where the freebies are & what is on offer, or they can just use the inworld ring to jump from one to the other.
