Poetica has a cool sandwich board sign base I wanted to try but I can't work out the skew angle. Can someone tell me what it is please? I should have just PMed Beverly but I thought maybe someone else may someday need the information too.
Thanks in advance. smile

I have no idea what the exact angle is. Any graphical program should have something like what the Transform/Skew tool I use in PhotoShop to skew/rotate the image into place. Then you can select the white part of the image and then inverse the selection to delete the excess bits of your sign graphic so it's perfectly conformed.

Thank you Beverly. I will give it a try. If I do it right I will share it. If being the key word. wink
Thank you again.

You're welcome. I'm sure if you play around with it you'll figure it out. And being able to skew is an important skill to have for retexturing as you often have to retexture odd shapes.

Ok- then you will need to fiddle with the position more...
hm...I *think* I use the ROTATE after making the skew
so it dipped correctly backwards as this standing sign does.
Rotate angle must be below 90 degrees though... try 10 or so...

( I made a standing sign for My Tuscan Mama's Gourmet Buffet)

hug Susanne
