06 Dec Frustration…resolved
See this little bit of text? You don’t even want to know how long it took me to do this!
As many of you know, if you are using fusible for applique, you need to reverse your image. With the software I have, this is very easy for pictures, but not for text. It just ignores you when you tell it to flip the text. I spent nearly two hours yesterday trying to figure out how to do this in MS Word or Publisher. Nearly twenty years ago, I worked with PageMaker on the Mac and it was a snap to reverse text. (Although I have no idea why I was doing it then, since that was long before my quilting days). I know you can do this in Adobe Illustrator – unfortunately I don’t have a spare $600 at the moment!
Then, this morning it hit me – try it in Photoshop! Worked like a charm! Now I can get on with making the project!
