Red is one of the colors in my logo-- how do you feel about making it an accent color? I am afraid it might be too alarming-- but wanted your opinion
[DTG] Well, we know that RED is always an 'active' color, and usually calls attention to itself. Now you need to decide if the nature of what you're designing accent colors for is such that you WANT to call attention and be 'active'. Select from these colors... followthatdream.ca
I'm trying to learn to use photoshop without having to buy the cd. Can you give me a site that can help me?
[DTG] Hello? Unless you buy the CD, you don't have a legal copy of Photoshop! And, without that CD you probably have no 'help' files. Pay your dues... then if you still need help, get help the same way thousands of others do -- by taking advantage of www.design-bookshelf.com
This project focuses on the development of complete fonts using Fontforge, and Type Design Documents on how to design fonts from scratch to an advanced level. It aims that everyone involved can and will learn more about typography and type developing in a collaborative method. www.typeforge.net
G.K. from India asks:
using Photoshop it is possible we can do onginal photo into naked photo?
[DTG] While we're not quite sure exactly what he means by "naked photo" -- we get the message. Generally we do NOT respond to such requests.

We'll probably get started on the Holiday season during October as well, so get your thinking cap ready to share holiday and seasonal tips, tricks and promotions for November and December.
And, as for this month, well, you've already wasted a perfectly good hour reading the DTG newsletter. Hopefully all is not wasted and you've gained at least one helpful tidbit of info.
Thanks for reading...
