I would also like to participate in challenges and post to the gallery. I am assuming that the l/o's that are nice and clean have been scanned first. I don't have a printer that will scan 12 x 12 so I will have to take a pic with my camera. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
ScrapNatya Is this an instrument of torture or communication?

Mine aren't the most professional looking but they convey the idea just fine. I use my camera and set my project on the floor by a window with some nice natural light. I don't use flash because of the glare. When I upload the pics to my laptop, I use Photoshop to crop and lighten/darken and resize the image. Really just the bare minimum since I really don't know how to use the program.
You want to size it to 600x600 in a jpg file. I think you can also do this on photobucket if you don't have any kind of photo editing software.
