|What PODs do u currently use or have shops on? *|| |
|What did you do with your free time before zazzle or other POD's....and what do you do with it now? *|| |
Photography has always been a hobby, as well as travel, and in my discovery of Zazzle my photos of my past travels formed the basis of the first products I created on Zazzle. I only wish in retrospect that I had taken more photos that would have been Zazzle-worthy.
My background is in computing and education and am involved in that when not Zazzling. But always at the back of my mind is the question 'How can I use this to improve my presence on Zazzle?'.
|What programs do you use to make your designs *|| |
|Tell us more about what you like and do not like about each software you use, what makes it special. *|| |
I have a far amount of image software on my Mac but for the majority of tasks involving photographs and graphics I use Gimp. I use it because its free and has has almost all the features of Photoshop.
I used to run Photoshop but with OS upgrades on my Mac when it failed to run I decided to invest my time in Gimp. ( I am on an intel Mac Snow Leopard 10.6.8 ).
I've also dabbled in vector software, Inkscape, but havent quite reached the end of the learning curve on it. I also use Mandela software, and Art Rage now and again, but find I'm much more fluent in Gimp.
|Will you make custom orders? *|| |
Yes - sometimes free, sometimes fee required upfront
|Elaborate on your answer above regarding custom orders... *|
Minor modifications to designs on existing published products (eg color or text changes or repositioning of elements) I'll do for free (up to 2 changes)
