I've downloaded 7 images to Imageshack, they are public, they are numbered to correspond to my short explanation that follows, hope all works out, if not let me know where I went wrong.

( url to imageshack and images ) http://my.imageshack.us/v_images.php ( copy and paste in browser window )

--------------------------------------------

1. ( I'm using CS4 ) Pick a hard 2 or 3 pixel brush, open up the brushes palate and highlite Brush Tip Shape,
then move slider till there is a space between dots.
2.check Shape Dinamics box, and move sliders for scatter, Count, Count jitter.
3.Check Color Dynamics box, move slider for Foreground/background to maybe the middle.
3a.Pick a light sand color for Bkgd, and a darker sand color for foreground.
4. Use brush and see sand appearing, will work better if you have a stylus pen.
5. changing Bkgd/Foreground will give varying results.(highlights and shadows)
6. This works will leaf, stars, grass, brushes etc. etc.

Experiment,Experiment, Experiment, with all sliders in brushes palate to see may different results you can achieve.

Thanks NewsMaster, I figure I'll get some screengrabs and post them on Imageshack and click the "share" button. Have not tried it yet, and I too am not familiar with Imageshack, but the time has come.



If you use firefox, and you should because it's free, open source, and superior in almost every way to any other browser (and, it's unlikely that I'm a Mozilla shill because they're a non-profit corporation), and by right clicking on the image itself and choosing "copy image location" (as opposed to copy image or save image, which are also very convenient options which exist to varying degrees of success on other browsers), and then creating the BB Image tags yourself and pasting the image location you got from firefox in the middle of them, you're good to go every time (or, I've never not had it work for me...one sec...random pic of sand, coming up...)



Anyway, since there's no preview button, I'm gonna say, "see...works like a charm every time" without knowing if that statement is correct or not, but because that beside the technical issue with posting images and videos in the same post, it has worked every time, I'm gonna (probably stupidly and wrongly) assume that it has worked once again here and be a little man-meaty goodness y and confident in that assumption.

I'm sure this will not work now and I'll look dumber than even I normally do, but that's par for the course. It has worked almost without exception thus far.

Hi Vic you might find Photobucket.com a lot easier, you can upload photos and videos. They can be saved as images and html, they can also be emailed direct. There are ads on there. Be sure never to click anything except your own things.

This a a photo I just uploaded from Photobucket of my 18 and a half year old dog Holly, with my husband.

She gets fresh chicken ... most days, sausages as a treat and occasionally steak. We love her so much. She seems to keep going although we have to get up in the night so she can go outside.

Every day we have her is special. The vet says she is in remarkably good condition

I can't get to your page Vic. I have an image shack account but still couldn't find you.

It works very well for me, just click on the image link, it will copy automatically, then paste it here.
