Cut Paper Design: Friends

Just finished! This is an illustration for my next book. What do you think? Question: Does anyone out there know how to rid my scanner of this thin green line? Thanks.

I don't know about the scanner, but your work is really inspiring me this week!

I've done a bit of searching, and your scanner line is probably caused by dust. Try giving your scanner surface a really good clean, make sure there are no specks on the glass. Scan and see if that has fixed it.

If that doesn't work, there are two routes available to you:

Hardware: You need to clean inside your scanner too. Look up your model on the manufacturers website and find out how to clean it. You might need one of those small canisters of compressed air.

Software: download something like Paint.NET and correct your line using the clone tool. If you want to try this and aren't sure, give us a shout and I'll send you some more detailed instructions

This is a summary of what I found on the web, you might want to do your own search and see if I have missed something.

Loving your blog :)

Tess You ROCK! It's fixed. Thank you so much! Why I didn't think of DUST in this house is beyond me? Ha Ha!
And many thanks to ALL of you who emailed me or commented about my art work. It is very much appreciated.
