I've been experimenting some more today (in addition to trying to resolve a big problem with my scanner-- no luck on that so far). Here are some neat text effects I got by using the Text Mask (or is it Mask Text?) feature. You can "cut out" the shape of the letters from a patterned or colored background and move them to another document. Here I used an animal print patttern, a scan of French dictionary text, and a photo of the ocean. That's all for today. I'm going to tear myself away from this computer now.
