Free Music

Creating photo albums is a lovely job, full of other peoples memories, happy times and achievements.

Deciding to add music to these slide shows and turn them into DVD movies could really pay off for me, the only snag I hit was the lack of available music around. I did come across a couple of fantastic sites that sold the downloads for a reasonable price, the links to my favourite of these are:   http://www.soundslikecafe.com/  (a wordpress site, no less) and http://www.melodyloops.com/music/ . But I really just wanted something to experiment with until I found out if it would be a popular option or not, and if I can actually put the photos to music without it all appearing a little odd.

The solution: open up garage band & make my own!

Wish me luck.

I will be posting album + music if it all turns out ok – and hopefully in not too long a time…

Then on the inside with the pages there is…

the 1/2 title, full title, imprint page, contents page, preface/intro, sections & chapters, notes on the text, index, bibliography and further or recommended reading.

The text should be easy enough you think, once you get the grids, margins, print area, text, baseline grid, headings, sub-headings, captions, footnotes, running heads and folios sorted, that’s about all there is to consider when building a simple novel.

Once that is all sorted and written down, (because there is no way you will remember the list, never mind all the things you have decided on, the sizes, measurements, paper Read the rest of this entry »
