Yet another learning experience...

They say you're never too old, right?

So, I'm trying to print these icons out so they're usable as pin-things, right? I used two methods of putting the icons in a WordPerfect doc. I did a simple copy and paste, which sticks them on there as they are, same size and everything, about an inch square. I can get 42 icons on a page with that. And I did an "import graphic" which made them about an inch and a half square. I can get 24 per page doing it that way. Then I printed the doc out on high-gloss photo paper.

And...I can't say I'm thrilled with the results, either way. They're kind of grainy and just don't have the crispness I see on my screen. So. I need to try something else, obviously, because I'm not going to sell something to people that I wouldn't want to wear myself. I can't do it from Paint Shop Pro, because I don't have a printer installed for this computer, and I have no plug on this computer for that particular printer cable, which is, um, OLD. Yes, I realize that coming into the 21st Century kicking and screaming is the way most people do things. *clings to old ways, even though they suck*

You know, there's bound to be a way to network these two computers wirelessly...
