When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

Hi friends!

So I've got many skills in this old world. One is woodworking. Here is my newest creation, made for our annual Bread 'n' Boards fundraiser for the local food bank:

I call it The Mediterranean. Saturday morning it will be sold and I'll never see it again.

One skill that I don't have is Photoshop. No software. No experience. No soup for you.

What I'd like is to 'Shop this pic with a Mediterranean/Greek/Italian scenic background - you know - vines-grapes-olives-Mediterranean. But I'd like it for Saturday (tomorrow!) morning to use as a table tent to go with my board.

Is there anyone willing to help with this?

Can you explain it a bit more. You would like to print the picture?
If yes, in what dimensions and do you have someone to print it?
Also (if you would like to print it, in a large dimension) the file size would propably be a bit too large to send via internet.

Finaly if you would like someone to help you, you should find a picture that you like as a background so that there won't be any "backs and forths" because you don't like the background.

Possible background:



I could email the original .jpg image to whomever would do this, and print myself when done.

This is really not too difficult....in my opinion, the only "rough" part would be the shadow of the glass in the background, but that's not even very hard...

Have you got a background picture chosen? And is this for print or viewing on a screen?

For print. I'll make a table-tent of it, so what? - half page, portrait orientation on an 8 1/2 x 11.

Can you email this pic and the pic of your work? If these are for print, they really need to be at least 300 resolution...

I'll geekmail you my email if you want to send them...I'll give it a shot...

So the same pic on both sides of the tent?
