Baby Announcement

Hello, I am trying to make a baby announcement for my brothers new born baby. I was just wondering if any one had ever made one, and if so could someone maybe throw some ideas at me. I have never really done anything with baby pictures so every idea I have just dont really fit the theme. Just curious, are there tutorials on something like this in the subscriber area. (which by the way, I have been looking at alot, and must say that I absolutely love it) it makes life so so much easier with photoshop. I find that the way I was doing the things before worked but last night I seen it was much easier, and not the long way. Very Very Impressed. Im so glad, that I subscribed.

thank you so much!

I am not really good at this, usually (my artistic side is everything but good.. hehe!)

Perhaps you could tell us what you'd like to express (ideas, colours, etc.) and someone will be able to provide the technique to get there.

Thanks Wendy. I took a picture of my son with my digital camera the day he was born, brought it home and uploaded it to the computer. I desaturated it, then dragged it into my new document (a 4x6 @ 300dpi) then put it all together and uploaded it to the Costco 1 hour Photolab online. Within an hour I had 40 birth announcements in my hand for under $7.

The hospital offered announcements too. Their cheapest package was 10 announcements for like $30 and you had to wait like 2 weeks to get them.

That is a really nicely done announcement. I bet you were proud to hand those out.

What a cute little baby.

That's a great job! I know the ones the hospital charged me for were not even close to as appealing as that one was. Good thinking. I wish I would have had all this to work with when my two were born. My youngest is now 16 years old - today is her birthday!
