Photoimpact 10 Texture Scaling and Fadeout Problems

Photoimpact 10 Texture Scaling and Fadeout Problems

Photoimpact 10 Texture Scaling and Fadeout Problems

I use Photoimpact 10 extensively but many of the textures and effects such as 'weave', and 'stipple' etc simply obliterate the picture to an unrecognisable mess.   Most of these are not capable of being scaled right down, nor do the various controls 'level', 'density' etc have the same effect.   For example if I want the effect of a photograph printed on canvas, I simply cannot get it using any of the effects available in the 'Easy Pallette'

Can anyone tell me whether there is some way of reducing the scale of these and other effects to a far greater extent than may be provided for in the standard controls.  I have a feeling there must be some overall scaling facility within Photoimpact that I have not so far been able to find.

ALSO - Most of my photography is done using a white background.  I have recently bought a 6-colour Epson R230 printer and this prints rather more information than is visible on my laptop screen.    Whilst this may be due to my laptop screen and/or eyesight, one especially annoying phenomenon is that when I apply cloud effects as a background from the Easy Pallette and then use the 'Paintbrush' tool (set to white) to fade the clouds out to merge with the white background, the Paintbrush tool seems to take only the primary colour(s) out of the clouds, leaving a grey or beige 'shadow' that comes up clearly on my printer output but is not visible on screen.   How can I obtain a quick and simple fade from any colour into white that does not leave visible traces for my printer to detect?

Your advice would be appreciated

Thank you
