The steps I used for scanning were:

1. Open image capture

2. Overview the image

3. Crop area that you want imported

4. Select settings e.g dpi., Descreen

5. Select scan image

6. Save

Selecting the Descreen button reduces the risk of moiré patterns from appearing on your scans so by selecting it your image will look clearer.

scan at 150 dpi, descreen off

scan at 150 dpi, descreen on

scan at 72 dpi - suitable for web

scan at 150 dpi - suitable for print

Scan at 360 - suitable for presentation

DDS drawing at 360 dpi, descreen on

fabric scan at 360 dpi, descreen on


The significance of layers in Photoshop is that if there are in the wrong order, the image that is on another layer may be hidden and does not show on the overall image. It also allow the user to work on their image in a more systematic way.

Cupcakes and Cashmere

Emily Schuman was a former magazine editor and her blog cupcakes and cashmere has been my favourite to read since last year. Her blog is very easy to read and what makes it even more special is how she also blog about what she cooks and bakes (heart-shaped brownies for valentines, yum). From time to time, she also blog about beauty tips which makes visiting her blog like having a good chat with a girlfriend. I love reading Schuman's blog and looking at how she interpret current fashion trends to suit her own style. For me, this blog is basically everything i love put together in one place which is why i find it so amazing!
