    I know this is a photo forum but Ive Googled and I can not find a walk through what I'm looking for.

    I want to make a cut out for my son's teacher and put her name and have the children's faces making her name, kind of like a cut out.

    I have done this before with the word Grandma and put the grand kids but I dont remember what it is called to search for a tutorial in Gimp.

    I lost my photoshop due to a computer crash, so I only have Gimp

    Thanks so much in advance

    :scratch: Computer crashes don't erase applications.

    Well, they do if your hard drive fails, or a virus can be more work to remove than to format and start over. But that doesn't erase the CD if thats what your getting at!

    I think the point was that computer crashes don't eliminate the program completely if you own a legitimate copy of the application. :D

    A computer crash, is not a hard drive failure, is not a virus. ;)

    Adobe says 33% of their software that is installed on computers is stolen, which is why honest people pay $699 for PS/CS5 or $199 to upgrade to PS/CS5.

    Those out there that have stolen copies of Photoshop, should really wonder how Adobe knows that. Think about it!

    It is painful how expensive the program is ... I'm still using my student edition of CS3 that I bought while in college.

    People that are savy or in the industry realize this, but to many if your monitor is unplugged and you can't see your desktop, your computer has crashed! I work in the engineering side at a cable company now, but I used to do service work in people homes. Lets just say, the world is full of not-so-bright people. :lol:

    Then you actually have CS3 Extended, Student Edition, right?

    Well, the good news is you can upgrade to CS5 for only $199 or you can upgrade to CS5 Extended for just $349.

    I can't justify the cost of CS5 either and felt limited by Elements. Went with Corel's Paintshop Photo Pro X3 and quite happy so far. Give it a try -- there's a free 30 day trial, so nothing to lose.

    Pirated software bugs me... although I can't help thinking that a good chunk of the pirates will buy a licensed copy if PS CS wasn't so absurdly expensive. Maybe I'm being naive... I'm sure Adobe has a bunch of highly paid finance/economics folks figuring out the optimal pricing to make the most money.
