The information I provide here is from Personal Experience and is not official or from the Staff or owners of Glitter-Graphics.com
If you are new and want to learn how to make graphics I will be happy to answer any questions I can. Graphics are made with computer programs such as Pant Shop Pro, Photo Shop and Photo Impact Pro. To make glitter or animated graphics you also require an animation program. I personally use Paint Shop Pro 9 with Jasc animation to make my graphics.
There is some really great info on graphic making here:
Many people are unaware of what is "theft" of graphics. Many people do not understand the difference between what is allowed to be done with graphics and what is not. Here are some basic out lines of what you can and can not do with graphics on the net:
Uploading graphics from one Graphics site to any other Graphics sites, is considered redistributing. Redistributing graphics with out the artist permission is STEALING!
Photo Bucket is NOT Public Domain and many of the graphics there are there without the artists permission. Many people do not realize that they should set their albums to PRIVATE to keep their Pictures and graphics from being stolen. Many do not realize that if they are collecting graphics they like in their albums they are also allowing those graphics to be stolen if their album is not set to PRIVATE. That is very unfair the the artists of those graphics because many people do not realize that PHOTO BUCKET and site like it are NOT PUBLIC DOMAIN.
Photo Bucket is NOT a good place to get graphic resources (graphics you can use to make graphics or layouts). If you use graphics from Photo Bucket chances are that you are stealing somebody's hard work, or Personal Pictures.
If you are using graphic creation sites such as Blingee or Imikimi to "make" graphics even if you crop off the site name, it is stealing if you redistribute them by uploading those graphics to other Graphic sites. Those site are for making PERSONAL graphics for use on PRIVATE sites such a family web pages, memorial sites ect. only.
PERSONAL USE ONLY means you can use the graphics to decorate and send to friends on personal sites such as here on GG, MYSPACE, Private Family web sites and private memorial sites.
Taking a graphic and "altering" it (adding a background, frame, wording or covering over parts such as the signature tag) does not make that graphic yours, it is still stolen unless you have gotten permission from the original artist to use the graphic.
Do Not use any art that you do not know who the artist is or where it is from, and always give credit the the artist who's work you use. There are many sites on the net that provide resource artwork for making graphics. Make sur to always follow each artists ToU.
Thank You to all of my friends that have made me these wonderful graphics! I download and save EVERY graphic made for me. I have a huge amount of computer storage space :)
Please Do Not post chain letters or any type of chain mail on my page, you can loose your account if you are caught.
I appreciate my few friends here that still leave me messages and make graphics for me, I do read them and it does help to know there are still some people that care.
Hello my GG friend and glitter-Bug.Hope you are having a beautiful today. I am so sorry I have not been here as often as I want to be, but my work must come first as a substitute teacher. I worked every day last week and had not time for anything else. BUT next week, not this week, but the next I am on a short fall break from school and hope to be her making visits to you and making graphics..So n the meantime, I wish you a beautiful week, sunny skies, and happiness!! HUGGS,
How are you?? Thinking of you!!
Hello and happy today! Stopping i to say have a great today and a great week ahead!! Busy at school substituting and loving every minute of it! October is here and cannot believe holidays soon!! Enjoy your day!! HUGGS
Hello my GG friends, I hope this little note finds all of you safe and sound if you went through that awful hurricane as I did. I want to take this time to thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for your hugs, love and messages here and on FB. It meant the world to me to know that my friends were thinking of me and Kenny and my family. SO THANK YOU!! Thankfully when Kenny and I returned home from an over night stay with my granddaughter and her mom we found our home still standing and just a few roof shingles on the lawn. All are fixed now. The yard both front and back was filled with tree limbs, and debris, took me and Kenny 5 hours but that is all cleaned. We went through 5 solid days with no power nor running water due to the fact I have a well system that runs off electric..lost all our food in the freezer and fridge.. So you can imagine the tough time that was, the heat was in the 90's inside my home and out. When power went on this past friday, once the central air was turned on and the home cooled down I headed for the best shower..LOL..So yes we can say we survived IRMA!! I missed all of you and felt so alone in the world with no access to anything.. BUT I am here again and thankful to be here!! In the meantime I wish you a beautiful today what ever you are doing and enjoy a new week..Love and Huggsss,
