Prepare my business card artwork for PDF (Bleed and Crop Marks) for perfect printing - CorelDRAW 12 and Adobe Illustrator CS3

Most people in today's digital world already use some type of graphic software and have some idea of how to put together a business card, flyer, brochure or postcard with with no, or little, problem.

Adobe Photoshop CS2 Photoshop Effects That Can Be Executed to Produce Your Own Graphics Quickly

Ghosting is perfect for pictures involving subjects in motion, taken when the camera and the background is stable (not moving) and the subjects move through, around, or across the frame. I have had great success using this effect when photographing people moving about an historic site or children as they scamper over rocks. I have also used this effect for weddings and sports shoots. Example: In one wedding photograph, the groom stood still at the bottom of stone steps to an historic dwelling, his hand extended towards his bride, who slowly moved down the steps toward her groom. My six deliberate 'clicks' of the shutter created an airy, surreal picture of the wedding couple. Depending on the speed of the moving subjects, the shutter can be held down in rapid fire mode or each exposure can be meticulously choreographed: 1) each subject deliberately positioned in the frame, 2) one 'click' of the shutter, and 3) repeat steps 1 and 2 to the total number of multiple exposures you set in your camera.
