Very nice Don,
I take my hat off to anyone who can produce a nice smoothly narrated video like yours - it is not easy.
I gave it a try a few days ago, I wanted to create a new AlbumEasy introduction and tutorial for YouTube. Speaking off the cuff for the initial few tries proved to be unsuccessful. So I then wrote it out as a script that I could read, the result was a little better, but I kept on losing my place after turning to look at the screen. Eventually after countless retries, still not happy with it, I released it anyway.
I discarded "Gimp" I found it clunky.
Do any members know if Don's route, would apply to "MS Paint" ?
Unless the version of MS Paint included with Win10 is far advanced over the version in Win7 then I am pretty sure that it doesn't have the necessary features.
The Gimp is an incredibly powerful program, unfortunately, that power comes with a learning curve, persevere for a few hours and it will be worthwhile. no need to learn it all at once, for me the most important thing was when I figured out how layers worked.
Using layers to duplicate Don's method would make it even faster. After copying the vertical perforations, rather than pasting as a new image, paste as a new layer. Use the magic wand to select the perforations, invert the selection and delete the background leaving only the perforations.
Duplicate the layer three times, rotating each the appropriate number of degrees, then by activating each layer in turn one can drag the perforations into position,
