Graphics and Artsy Stuff

Photoshop is very difficult and not to mention expensive, so I've found some great online image editing sites, thanks to the good peeps at C.A.T.T. (Collect All The Things)

Besides mixing music to help relax me and to create pretty things to bring out the artsy side of me, I've found that I enjoy this.  I stay at home most of the and hardly go anywhere, except for errands, going out of town for NCR, ABC, etc...

The C.A.T.T.collecty site is a spin-off/continuation of the Cheezburger Collectibles that was ended a few years ago.  Many peeps loved them, so a brave new "Fearless Leader (fbastage)" started his own site for us to continue the fun.  We also call the little 240 x 240 graphics collecties or collectys.  But I also use it to make other things and better looking LOLs for cheezburger or whatnot.  I've made some nice collages for my friends and family members too.

I can also make and caption my own album art now, instead of asking someone else to help.

It's also a great way to get my mind off the bad stuff happening in this insane world.

Allow me to post a few of the things I made.  Thanks.

These things are collectibles

Some collecties for CATT...

Famous Cats Hall Of Fame
Famous Cats on Parade (Week 151)

Gimme Sum Suga!
Happy Valentine's Day (Week 149)
Miracle's Gimme Sum Suga! was 2nd Place.  Foxkatt's Purry Pweeze? was 1st Place.
I know it's backwards.  1st to 4th place in the set console goes from right to left for some reason.

I should have put the turkeys over his eyes instead....

Okay, now for all the sites and online aps/programs used...

Image Editing Sites:

My favorite image editing site by far is Online Image Editor.
Here's what it can do...
* Cuts off the blank bits.
* It will crop to make a square (ideally), then resize to get it to 240 x 240.
* If you upload a .jpg file, you can check the thing to convert to PNG before it uploads. However, if you do put sparkles on it, then it automatically changes it to a .gif.
* You can layer graphics in this one too.
* You can click on the thing to make badges.
* You can make a transparent PNG, however it's not perfect and may leave fuzzies or cut off parts that you do not want.

Find transparent PNG and GIF graphics on Google search with Google Chrome. Once you find your search, then click on images.

Make GIFs from videos...

Find a video you want to use, then try one of these online websites to create a gif: (will need to create log in)

Gif resizing... For stubborn gifs that won't resize in Online Image Editor

Collage making sites...

Other templates and effects.
