I am making a layout for a good friend, but I am stuck with a graphics problem :P The thing is, I wanna blend part of a graphic that I am using in the layout to it fades to the colour below it, if you get what I mean ^_^;;<
><
>I managed to get the thing looking kinda how I want it by blurring the last quarter or so of it, but it's not how I want it really :P<
><
>Really, I guess if this is a better way of explaining, I just want the bottom third or so to fade into this pinky colour below so the image isn't visible anyone.<
><
>Gah, just look at what I have done so far, and if you would be so kind, comment on what I have done.<
><
>I am using ArcSoft PhotoStudio, as it's what came on my new laptop, but I have Paint Shop Pro 6 too on CD, so if anyone can help, PLEASE do so! ^_^;;<

You mean something like the edges of www.nikkiwebster.dk/image...ground.jpg ? (See how it's used at www.nikkiwebster.dk/ and if you wanna judge my late night graphics skills, the original is stored here: www.nikki.com.au/images/photo_7.jpg in full colour and everything )<
><
>In that case, I did that by making a layer I put at the bottom, then I used the blur tool in PhotoShop to make the fade effect by having it blur and make the image semi transparent. I could send you the .psd file if I still have it. What I see as important is, that there's some transparency to make the transisiton between the border and the background colour smooth.<

Yeah, that's kinda how I want it yeah. Thanks a lot for explaining it to me, because I think the tools are the same in Paint Shop Pro, I am not exactly sure, because I haven't used it since I got my laptop. I have been more occupied moving music across ^_^;;<

Your welcome.. If you need any more help then just ask... This was really an easy question for me, as it's not more than a month since I made the pic.. But really graphics is not me...<
><
>I don't know why you feel you've seen her on that channel a few days ago. But if you like, I might be able to check for you if she has been on the show... However so far the only performance she did on TV outside Australia was the Olympic opening and closing ceremony. Do you remember if it was a music video? And if so, the name (or just a few lines) of the song? And if it wasn't a video, then the name of the show? Would be quite interesting (at least for me) if you had really seen her there..

Well, it was a music video, and the channel is just one where you call in and request a music video. They have a list of ones available for selection, so I can have a look on list of selections sometime very soon if you want. I was just channel surfing when I saw it, but I am kinda sure it was her.. : P<
><
>I had a look around your site (very nice, btw ^_^) and she is austrialian right? I know they play Savage Garden and Darren Hayes music videos too, so I guess that she could have a video on there too ^_^<
><
>I am interested in what her music sounds like as well, what's it like? ^_^;; Oh, and if I need more graphics help, I know where to come ^_~ hehe...<
><
>EDIT: I will try to check tonight, but my roommate is watching the TV right now, and I need to be up early tomorrow for work, so it might be tomorrow when I find out for you, hope this is okay ^_^;;<

Well, BMG are only interested in releasing and promoting her music in Australia, so I find it a little strange (but cool) if a UK TV channel plays her songs... If you wanna know what they sounds like, then drop me a mail at webmaster@nikkiwebster.dk as I've got some samples online (About 1/5th of the entire song) of every song on the cd's she's released, but I'm not going to make them publicly available (At least not yet.) Make sure that I knows that it's you... The best way is to use the e-mail address that's in your EZBoard Public profile.<

Well, these channels play music by other people that haven't had singles released over here (The Mad Capsule Markets, a J-Rock band, springs to mind as they have only had one album released here, and even then I *think* it was through Manga Entertainment :P) so I guess it is entirely possible. I promise I will find out tomorrow if it was her or not ^.^<

>I will be online tomorrow too, so if I get on there before I get here, I will let you know. The only reason I am on here now is because my lazy roommate was using my laptop to play games on, and left it turned on ^_^;;<

Well, I just got back from my morning shift at work and checked, and guess what? I was right, it IS her! ^.^<

>You can select a song called Strawberry Kisses (I think that's it) on The Box in the UK, and that's the only one on there, but at least I know it was actually on there, and I wasn't seeing things ^_^;;<
><
>Maybe it's gonna be released as a single here or something? That's the only reason I can think of it being on there, unless BMG are just gonna quietly release an album here... The channel has this thing where it tells you about new single releases too, so I will keep an eye out for you if you want?<

Cool.. Maybe BMG is planing a UK release!<
><
>Yes, Strawberry Kisses is her first single, it was released a while ago in Australia and was number 2 on the ARIA chart for about 8 weeks.<
><
>But I think it'll still be cheaper for me to order the CD's from Australia than the UK, even though I live in Denmark.<
><
>And please keep an eye open for me! I'm not able to get that channel over here on the other side of the water. Also I see a logic reason for staring a worldwide release in the UK, actually I see 2. One is that it's one of the UK charts appears to be one of the most respected charts in the world, and the second is that her grandparents live in the UK... <

I'm usually buying her CD's online at sanity.com.au so it's not a big problem to get them.. If there's an official release in the UK, I bet some online store will sell them, and I can compare prices and see where I can get it cheapest <
><
>But if you can't get to see the video, it was on the latest single, so you can have a copy from me, however, if you've got a slow internet connection it might not be THAT fun... (The file is about 60 megs )<
><
>I've only
ought ONE CD from someone that was not a shop, and it worked this way: I got the CD, and then a couple of days after I went to my bank and transfered the money to his account.. It was expensive as hell so if I can buy the things otherwise I prefer to do so.. I think the bank charged about £5-6 (Not an exact conversion) for the service... As a compareation, they charge NOTHING when I use my VISA....<
><
>But thanks for keeping your eye's open... I might try to contact BMG and ask about it... Problem is, that I've heard that rarely reponds to the mails they get... HMm.. Perhaps I should phone their Danish office.. This is actually getting really interesting! (At least for me ) "No matter where my life may lead,<

Heh, I am guessing that if it was a single release that is coming up from her soon, it shouldn't be more than £2-£3 for the single. That's what singles usually cost here I have ordered CD's from Austraila too, when I had an obsesion with Savage Garden, heh ^_^;;<
><
>60 Megs? That's quite big, and I only have a 56k modem at the moment, so you are right, it wouldn't be much fun downloading it I might try to request it tomorrow, because I haven't had time today :P I wanted to come on MSN too, but I have been really busy with my roommate, packing all of our stuff away, because we are moving to a bigger place next week :P <
><
>Maybe you should try and contact BMG. Heh, maybe I should send them an e-mail too, just so they can see there is interest from people regarding a song release outside Australia. I guess it's always worth a shot <
><
>As I said before, it's no problem, if I find anything else out, I will let you know as soon as I can And this IS getting really interesting, I wanna know what she sounds like! And if her single does get released here, I am gonna buy it for sure! ^.^<

Maybe we find it interesting, but I don't know with the rest of the people at this board... Perhaps we should countinue this discussion by E-Mail?<
><
>Hmm.. Here they are about £6... Actually an AUD4.95 single, with AUD7 in shipping turned out CHEAPER than if I had
ought a CD from a local music store! Same with albums, they are a lot cheaper in Australia than Denmark. Long live the internet <
><
>Anyway, I know a guy in England that have actually imported her CD's and sold them there.. And so far I don't think, that BMG was happy with it, (But his costumers were ).<
><
>Hmm.. There's a streaming version somewhere at www.click2music.com.au/ar...ster,Nikki the quality sux, but it'll give you an idea of how the video looks, and how the song sounds. Actually there's 3 singles out, and all the videos are at that website.<
><
>And I think I might give BMG Denmark a call soon, to hear about it, as BMG in the UK seems to be ignoring e-mails (The before mentioned guy tried e-mailing them lots of times.) Also IF they are going to release anything over there they'll mention it at www.click2music.co.uk<

Hehe.. You can order 2 of her cd's from Denmark soon... I did some research after my last post, and it seems like there's a nordic release of the Strawberry Kisses single at the 15th April, and her album "Follow Your Herat" is released the 6th May.. Funny enough, they are NOT having the same covers as the copies I've got in my collection, so guess who's off to the record store in a couple of weeks! (21 days unless my math skills sux!)

Wow... you would do that for me? that's so cool!

It ok, as long as mu costs are covered.. And all it costs me, is the postage.. Another option is that you buy the single "The Best Days" it have two of the videos on it. You'll have to buy it online.. (Or go to Australia and buy it ) I use www.sanity.com.au The direct url for the single is www.sanity.com.au/Product...ENT&PCHID= Also you need a computer with support for multisession CD's to read the data part (Don't worry, if the computer/CD-Rom drive are less than 4-5 years old it does )<
><
>You might get faster delivery by getting the CD from Sanity, as I'm not the one that's quick at processing orders <
><
>The versions of the videos I have are the same as on that CD, to get them on a VHS I would just use the TV-Out on my MPEG (DVD) Decoder card. And perhaps add a few gadgets of the type you know so well from MTV (The title, artist and album) <i></i>

Unless the UK are using another PAL variant than Denmark, I have no problem making that tape.. I have too much time on my hands anyway.. <
><
>And I really DON'T think an airfare to Australia would be any good to your credit card balance!<
><
>When you've found the blank tape, then drop me an e-mail for my address. I might add some more clips, but they will all be on topic. Only problem is, that I like transitions, so there might be some effects and title screens on it as well. *Thinks this over for a moment* Hmm.. I've been thinking of making a simlair tape for myself for a while, so this is perhaps a good chance to get it done?<

Yeah, I can understand why, I hardly endorse the use of Audiogalaxy or any other similar music tool like that. I didn't want you to post the details on here, I just suddenly remembered about it, that's all <
><
>Heh, that kinda sounds like me when I have nothing to do, although I hate sleeping during the day, it makes me feel all tried and groggy when I wake up. I have been playing a lot of Halo and Dead Or Alive 3 just recently, good games btw <

>Hmm, good point, I just thought people would be getting bored of us posting these social posts back and forth, and so on, but if you are okay with it then so am I, like you said, it is a message board, and the whole point of it is to post messages and meet people <
><
>After 11AM GMT? Hmm, should be able to pull that off, unless my room mate has packed all the videos and dvd's away, which means I will have to go and raid thru all the boxes for a blank tape Or if I get playing Halo again when I should be packing ^_^;; Aeba kenka shiteta ne, Nagaku isugita no ka na<

I'll say downloading a song to see if you like it is ok, but if you really like it you should buy the CD.. And if you don't like it you should remove the files again (Who keeps MP3's they don't listen to anyway?) Also I just find it redicules, that I can buy a CD from Australia with VERY high postage, and the end result is STILL a cheaper CD than what I would be able to buy from a local record store! Seems like the music buisness are ripping us off here... Hmm.. Reminds me that I might have a 3 hour long recording of the local radio station stored somewhere on my computer... Making some MP3's from that wouldn't be much different from making a tape would it? Of course editing out the speak and comercials are a lot easier on the computer... Hehe... <i></i>

Pirogoeth
26.03.2002, 02:46
Hmm... maybe, but then all the MP3's on my computer are ripped from my CD collecton, well nearly all of them I have a lot of radio things I got off Napster a long time ago which feature Savage Garden in, and other MP3's made from Radio shows, are probably okay, as it's the only way I could have listened to them, plus most radio stations
oadcast over the net these days anyway So it's probably fine to edit radio shows and distrubute them as MP3, as they were originally shown over the radio, plus it's the equivilant of recording onto a tape anyway, like you said <

Hehe... A CD was released here yesterday (As we have passed midnight by now) with some songs from a youth songcontest (Like the ESC but the artists were between 8 and 15) I had the songs already Saturday afternoon after the show, as I had recorded every min of audio on the computer.. Took about 2 hours to edit it, but that was because I had some chat sessions going on as well <
><
>I also had one of Nikki's songs weeks before release because someone recorded a radio show where they played it... Isn't the internet a wonderful invention? I can't wait till the next album is released (She's recording it these days) <i></i>

Pirogoeth
26.03.2002, 03:01
Yeah, it is a wonderful invention, I dunno what I would do without it 2 Hours sounds good if you had chat on too. It would have probably taken two days for me ^_^;; I love making website layouts for people, and I like to think I am good at it, but I tend to be lazy about it, and stuff takes like a week to be done when it really should take a day or two :P<
><
>Another album? Yay! Hehe, I just hope she releases stuff in the UK real soon, and if she doesn't, at least her stuff seems to be getting released in Denmark I just still find it strange that the video is being shown here, but there is no sign of an official CD release in the UK yet :P Aeba kenka shiteta ne, Nagaku isugita no ka na<

Hmm. Maybe you should check out www.click2music.be The french version, find Nikki's page and click concerts...... Nice info to see there....<

It's not fair! It's like every country in the world except the UK is getting a Nikki release, or information in some form ;_; But that's typical really, this has happened a few times before to me :P<

>BMG is taunting me! ^_^;;<

>They responded to a message you sent? cool? I remember when I e-mailed Konami Europe about a release of Para Para Paradise in the UK, and they never replied, even though I sent the e-mail once or twice a week over a period of a couple of months :P Aeba kenka shiteta ne, Nagaku isugita no ka na<

Nope, BMG pratically have almost nothing to do with Nikki's website! It's ran by the Websters themself (Or a friend of the family). So you get a little better service there <

>I just sent a mail to BMG Denmark, so let's see if they respond.. If not, I'll have to send it again and again and again... And in the end, I'll just call them <i></i>

The site isn't run by BMG? That explains a lot then <

>Heh, send the e-mail a few times a day, and get others to send it as well. If it meant getting information outta them, I am sure I could help out by sending a few copies of it too, hehehe... <

Hehe, I sent BMG UK an e-mail asking about release information, we shall see how long it takes, if they ever do, to reply. If they don't, I *might* call them, but if it's a lot of money to do so, and only to get no release info, then I might as well use the time to call The Box and request the video again <
><
>Go on, if they don't reply, send them a mail bomb Maybe they will spring into action then, and give you some info <

26.03.2002, 21:55
Hehe How many pounds have you spent requesting that video by now? Anyway, I guess that BMG's UK office are located in London, so it's just normal tax to call London for you.... <
