There are some interesting tutorial Labs for AstroArt  - most of which are transferable to other products.  The Linked Unsharp Masking (LUM) for instance is farly easy to replicate in PhotoShop.

Nice one peeps, keep adding 'em on 8-)

Why haven't I spotted this before.

Well it was buried down the bottom of the list, so I just dragged it up and made it sticky :D

Well,there's a load there to keep me occupied for the foreseeable future.
I've just had the printer whirring away and just hope I may digest some of it.
Thanks for that Nick. 8-)

Hi

Found these tutorials great.

Little question. Is there an easy way to save the entire web page for transfer to my obs pc which is not internet connected. Basically, I have saved the page as File, Save as, destination is my external memory.

Pop down to obs and open the page. I can open the text but all the images are separate files still and so not included in the text. ie no handy picture reference along side appropriate position in the text. I have front page on the obs pc and so can open the text and copy/paste the image. This takes too long and in addition as the picture files are arranged alphabetically it is difficult, (and again time consuming) to place the right image to the right place in the text! I'd really hate to have wasted an hour saving all these tutorials for transfer, (and being nagged at for being on the computer), and then not be able to open a complete page!

Any tips are most welcome.

Anthony

Dunno about that Anthony, on my Mac I have the option to save as 'web archive' which downloads all images and everything on a page and stores it in one file. I'm not sure if there is, or what the function is called on a PC.

Have you tried saving each page as a favourite with availability offline?
I've no idea what I'm talking about but it might work.
