Great work Mr. Phes!

I stopped by this thread looking for SPACE-background pics.  :-||
Does anybody know a site where to get these?

This thread was created before Classic-Pirates.com was rediesigned and based off a Content Management System, thus the webpage the first post is referencing no longer exists. You can find all the images in Mister Phes's Brickshelf gallery here. :pir-wink:
Since there is nothing more to discuss, I'll close this thread.

Your backgrounds are great and I already downloaded some of them to use in some reviews that I will be making soon.  I was going to ask how I can put them into my pictures.  Are there any tutorials that will show me how to do this?  Do I need any special software that I can't afford? :pir-sceptic:

A number of programs including Photoshop can do that, but if you are after free stuff, I'd look at Gimp, which is almost as good as Photoshop, and it's also free!

Thanks, I'll try Gimp.  I don't want to spend $200 when I can get something free. :pir-sweet:

I would mention Paint.net as well.  Free (Creative Commons License) and the layout is probably easier to use (see here) for somebody looking for something closer to Photoshop's feel.  It handles layers just fine, which is needed for using these backgrounds.  Very nearly a replacement for Microsoft Paint - it was originally a college project sponsored by Microsoft and it grew into something a lot bigger.

Why thank you!  There was dozens more of them but it seems during our upgrade to Wordpress they were omitted.

I'll have to reinstate them when time permits.

I think I've used a few of them in some of my reviews, so thanks :)
But yes, the links were dead the last couple of times when I've been meaning to use them in my recent reviews

I also started using Paint.NET instead of The Gimp because I found it much easier to use. But I definitely don't use it intensively, so I wouldn't be the one to ask about the pros and cons of the various programs. Most of the time I now use it to do some really simple image editing for the classic-town.net blog (bit of shameless promotion here  :pir_laugh2: ).

I'll have to put them on my "To Do" list.

Right now I'm working on a rather large upgrade for Classic-Pirates.com so getting that done in the main priority.

For those wanting image editing tutorials, there are some good ones in the Reviewer's Academy, and I did a read-only one here.

Wow SlyOwl - those sails on your SES look completely new. Did you buy a MISB at some point and open it?

I remember seeing that.  A very good tutorial indeed.
