Thanks gents!

Just love the way you can get expert advice in minutes on the forums.

And apologies for thinking it was an A4 from the original angle.

jj604 - You're welcome! I kinda liked it - I started on a repaint for the L-39 in RealFlight just to see how it would look in the air! ~ Robin

Robin the other L39 you might like is the ones in the "Baltic Bees" aerobatic team. Similar scheme.

Robin,

You're very welcome. I've only used Callie's services one time but was very pleased with not only her work but also with her communication and the quick delivery of her product. The ease of laying down her decals also really impressed me.

And BTW, "Taking up space" is what we all do on here....lol

jj604 - Thanks, I saw that while searching for yours! I like the angry Hornet better though! I'm just playing with the L-39 in realflight - I'm more of a Super Cub or DH Beaver kinda guy- but I did do a 'quick' search for a EDF L-39! ...

Don - Last week I had Callie make up a set of my own design (fictitious) markings for my Flyzone Beaver so it wouldn't look like every other one at the field! Complete set for $19.00 Total (incl. shipping)! We e-mailed once or twice to sort out some details and when I sent the money, they shipped the very next day! I think that's pretty impressive for a custom print job. She's always responded to e-mails by the next buisiness day and has always been very gracious for the work.

I also just finalized and ordered the 1/4 scale AWT Super Cub graphics from Callie and got a note from her today that they'd be in the mail tomorrow!

Last - Thanks Fellas, some of those Beaver graphics came from this thread! ~ Robin

I know this is probably not exactly the place for this post, but it does pertain to one of the decal images in this thread.

I downloaded one of the images and wanted to resize it. I used Photoshop Elements 8 to do the resizing and got it the size I wanted. But, and here's the problem, when I save the resized image it saves it back at it's original size. If I open the file in PS 8 afterwards it shows the new size, but if I insert the image into my wordprocessor, or any other program, it inserts it at the original size not the new size. I have saved the file in the GIF format it downloaded as, and JPEG format with the same results. Hope someone is using PS and can help me out.

Thanks,

Bob

I've also had luck using MS Word. Open a new doc, insert the picture, then you can drag the corners to resize. For good resolution, it's always better to reduce, than enlarge, so start with a large file size. You can also turn on grid. That helps with sizing as well.

When you edit and save a file in any Photoshop product, it does not change the original file. Instead, it creates a history file that on;y Photoshop can read. To save a redimensioned (or changed in any other way) you must "save as" to a new file name and the type of file that you want to use. The new file will have the properties that you want.

John, I've resized the image to the size I wanted according to the rulers, then saved the image using "save as" and under a different name. When I pull the resized image back in to PS Elements it goes back showing the original deminsions. Also, when I insert the new file into the program I'm using it inserts it at the same size as the original. I've done this at least a dozen times....all with the same results. I used Paint as K900 suggested and have had no problems with the size.
