Its really a great / fast / compact application. I have it running on
all my machines. Especially handy for looking to photos and such.
I usually enter fullscreen mode (enter) and go forward (space)
or backward (backspace) through my photo libraries. I did enable
high quality resample for fullscreen mode in the settings menu
though so I would not loose any quality for images larger than
my screen size (off which there are a lot).

I installed the additional plugins as well and that package can
almost read anything now.. and convert it. You can carry it
with you on a floppy and use it somewhere else without it
needing to be installed. Very very handy!

Glad you both liked it.

That's what got me through this crisis with the newspaper pages. I made em in frontpage, opened the file and captured the screen with Irfanview. Then took the capture into photoshop and cropped out the toolbars and frame and whatnot.

Fake Newspaper

By your thread title I thought you needed just that... a fake newspaper. But what you are talking about is using something that's already been created.

So... I'll suggest you keep copyright in mind. Didn't see anyone mention that.

from the "totally unhelpful comment" department...

fwiw, Vegas is doing exactly what it's supposed to with the "get media from web" option. It's for aquiring media from web based vendors, if you just need a single stock footage clip or that kind of thing. They don't mean creating media from web pages.

Charles: There is no copyright issue. What I did is make a webpage with Frontpage, and used a table function to divide into columns and headlines and the like. I drew a picture in photoshop.

Thank you for the kind words Doug! Appreciated. Gladly there
are also a lot of other knowledgeable and willing people around
here!

Glad everyone likes the program. I just bought myself a 2
mega pixel canon still camera and am pleased that IrfanView
even allows me to access the photo's EXIF information (date/time
it was recorded on, camera settings (shutter speed etc). and
what not)... Very nice.

Cheers!

Fake Newspapers

I guess I should have mentioned before...

When I was making my feature last summer I needed a shot of a newspaper front page. The story text didn't need to be shown, but a photograph and a headline did. I talked with the publisher of our local paper and he had his staff dummy one up (with their own banner) and run some copies on the press. So we even got shots of the front page coming off the press. All it cost me was a credit at the end of the film.

Somehow, I don't think I could get the Houston Chronicle to cooperate with me. They're not worthy anyway.
