I have had Adobe Photoshop on my PC for as long as I can remember and all I have ever really done with it is use it for cropping photographs. Imagine my delight when I came across a couple of online tutorials for making digi stamps, so I had to have a play. After many failed attempts I did begin to get a few really good results. The first stamp is taken from a photograph of my Great Grandmother and the second is from a photo of my daughter.
EDIT:- Barbara, the best tutorial I found was by Gillian Allen on Art-e-zine. I'm not sure if this tutorial would work on any other programme, but hey it's worth a try.
