Layered Template - May 2008 Planner
Here is May! I just WISH it were May again and we were on the brink of summer instead of closing in on winter. Just a side note on the photo -- this was my family reunion this summer -- celebrating my Grandparent's 60th Anniversary!
I started kind of rocky on the May kit, but I'm excited about where it ended up. I hope you like it, too. The paper and jeweled flower are from the May kit, "Spring Garden." I'll upload it tomorrow.
That leads me to a question -- specifically for Photoshop CS2 users/experts. I've created a lot of papers for the May kit using "Pattern Fill." The result is a 13MB+ file. One of them was even 20MB!!! Just for one paper!!! And the papers are nothing crazy -- just mini polka dots. So my question: how do I compress the file size without losing quality, taking it down from 300dpi, etc? I've tried flattening it. Flattening it and moving it to another document. I'm just at a loss for how to shrink the size!
Anyway, I'd love to hear any suggestions. But in the meantime, you can download the calendar template HERE. (link removed)
Now I'm off to the zoo. It's a beautiful day; on days like this, it's a crime to be inside!
