    Too busy?

    I've been lurking alot. Got a broken finger end of January- no modeling, model making, no heavy lifting (right hand too- my favored hand), no serious nose or butt p, well you don't need to know that! Typing don't go so good with a cast on either by the way although it is amusing at times when you hafta.

    I drop images into CAD and scale 'em. I also just drop a bunch into the word processor, make copies of an image and try different sizings/resizings. That's more trial and error but with several copies I usually find one that's right. I'll print a sheet and when I know which ones to keep I blow the others away and save the file for future use as a gauge when adding new images. I keep the images near the top of the page so I can rotate and flip the paper and reprint on the same sheet. I also use Wausau brand card stock because it has a tighter grain than others I've used for printing- it doesn't bleed the inkjet pigment.
