SAVE AS JPEG'S
I learned a while ago that I can save the weaving drafts I create with my weaving software as JPEG'S. That is useful information with this blog. It means I can easily save and upload weaving drafts to the blog.
"MY PICTURES" FOLDER
But I figured out something equally important. I can save them to a folder in "My Pictures". My operating system is Windows XP. When I click on the folder, it shows a normal view of one of the JPEG's in that folder. And at the bottom of the screen are thumbnails of the rest of the JPEG's in that folder. If I want to see any one of the thumbnails full size, I simply click on it. Or else I click on one of the arrows beneath the normal view. This is an absolutely wonderful system.
In the weaving program I use, PixeLoom, I can save my drafts as JPEG's. However, I prefer using a piece of software called Snag-It. It is available here. With this program I can choose just how much of the draft I want to save as a JPEG. I can create titles for the JPEG. All sorts of things. And I use it for capturing web site information as well.
In any case, if I am hunting for a draft, or if I want to see a group of them together, it is much easier to save the drafts as JPEG's into a folder in My Pictures and view them there, than it is to look at them individually in my weaving program.
