Soooooooooooooh, I LITERALLY just finished taking all of My Rejected designs for the webshop. Creating a Word Doc, for which to save the info from these Rejected Designs. The Tags, the Description info, all of it. Because I'd spent time on my suspect old Desktop Computer here in the corner of My Room. Using its Adobe 2.0 Program to CLEAN OFF the Rejected Designs last week, where to say it was an adventure is an understatement! Now?! Just so you know, My Audience for this website has been growing steadily. It is nowhere near as large as it COULD BE, due to the fact that I am NOT LOOKING TO HAVE EVERYBODY AND THEIR MOMMA UP ON HERE! Never mind that everybody is always so gung-ho about telling Us as Black People, go build yer own shit! Then when THAT IS ACTUALLY DONE, the Pull Yerself Up By the Bootstraps Bullshit turns into "HOLD ON THERE NOW!? DON'T PULL YERSELF UP THAT MUCH BOY-O!!!!" And that is because common sense teaches and tell's you that once someone creates and does shit for themselves, well? Fuck do they need you for anymore, HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! -_- With that TYPED! I've said it before and I'll type it again, I'M LEARNING ON THE FLY HERE, LITERALLY! And it has been one BIG-ASS, SLOW-ASS, SOMETIMES FRUSTRATING-ASS, AND OTHER TIMES EXCITING-ASS, ADVENTURE! And shout out to My Son who just turned 16, I know WE have a LOT TO TALK ABOUT! And this website is ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE WILL TALK ABOUT TOO! Because in the end, it will be yours when My Time is UP! And so will all of the properties and such associated to it and with it, but lemme slow my roll and come back around to why I am typing this right now and why I have INTENTIONALLY USED Rolento's theme of Gimmick from SFA3! I spent a lot of time cleaning off those Rejected Design Pics last weekend. And as you all know the majority of My Time is dominated by My Day-Job. But within THIS DAY-JOB I have the means to WORK ON MY REAL JOB WHICH IS THIS WEBSITE! But I am reaching a point where I need MORE TIME STRICTLY FOR WILLIAMS WORKS and I'm starting to BUMP-HEADS with the day-job as far as TIME-WISE AND WHAT I NEED TO DO AND HOW IT MUST BE SPENT, because I'm not someone who is unprofessional. When I am at My Day-Job, I WORK MY DAY-JOB AND IT COMES FIRST! Doing that job PROPERLY IS PARAMOUNT and ONLY WHEN THAT IS DONE! Do I do the work for Williams Works. So that means that when I take time to clean up pictures that have been REJECTED for production on the merchandise I intend to sell, then...? It has to be done RIGHT THE FIRST TIME. So when I took Lancelot Landers;
Initially I THOUGHT I could submit this AS IS and then they'd just go on ahead and PUT IT ONTO THE MERCHANDISE THE WAY I DESIGNED IT! ^_^ SILLY ME! HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA, THAT'S TOO EASY! Turns out that they Rejected this due to THE BACKGROUND BEING UNCROPPED! Now? I thought I could get the entire drawing printed AS THE DESIGN. But they've made it clear that ONLY THE DESIGN ITSELF IS GOING TO BE ACCEPTED. This leads to PROBLEMS for more complicated Artwork I have like this one;
Because the entire drawing is MEANT TO BE PRINTED, now!? Not to worry, I've FIGURED OUT THE FACT THAT!? I'm gonna have to put up my more SIMPLISTIC ARTWORK, single-shot pictures, etc! And leave these types off the webshop FOR THE MOMENT. Till I can go on ahead and GET WITH A PRINTING COMPANY THAT CAN ACTUALLY HANDLE MAKING MERCHANDISE WITH ALL OF THIS GOING ON IN THE DESIGN! ^_^ So there ya go, PROBLEM-0 SOLVED! Now back to why I'm typing this RIGHT NOW! So I got the Lancelot Landers drawing REJECTED. Uncropped Background, fine, lemme get that done!
So now you KNOW ABOUT THIS PART, because I told you about it before. I was using PAINT to remove the backgrounds but A WHITE BACKGROUND STILL SHOWED UP! So I'm thinking AT THAT TIME THAT, I'd gotten it RIGHT! Lemme go on ahead and put it UP! And understand that the entire process includes the Name of the Design. The Description of the Design. Tags for the Design so it can be searched, etc! And then placement on whichever merchandise that you wanna sell it on, you design that part! Then you work out either your own prices or standard prices based on what you've chosen to put Your Design on! You can also SHARE YOUR DESIGN SO THAT OTHERS MAY USE IT AND YOU GET A COMMISSION OFF THAT TOO! So yeah, I'm thinking, all right! DONE! And you know how that went because I already typed to you about that, well!? I finally got what I needed and as I started off saying I got Ye Ole Janky-Desktop from LONG AGO that has Adobe 2.0 on it SO I'M SET RIGHT! RIGHT!? RIGHT! RIGHT!? -_- Clearly you can see that this went wrong, but the question was HOW THIS TIME? And I will tell you how.
I used the proper tools but DID NOT KNOW THAT JPEG DOES NOT SAVE WITHOUT A BACKGROUND! ^_^ Isn't that GREAT! Isn't that CUTE! >_< And I didn't know this, HOWEVER!? When I kept on looking at My Finished Cleaned background ON ADOBE 2.0 IT SHOWED IT WAS CLEAN! But when I saved it I had saved it to jpeg, so I simply ignored the fact that I was STILL SEEING A WHITE BACKGROUND WHEN I'D CLEANED THEM OFF! Opened it with the Adobe, BACKGROUND IS GONE. Looked at them through Office Picture Manager, white background. So I ERRONEOUSLY jump to the conclusion that shit is cool. I go back REDO ALL THE DESIGNS FOR APPROVAL AND...? I saw that the white backgrounds were still there, JUST NOW! Needless to say I am not exactly happy, BUT NOT EXACTLY ANGRY EITHER, and whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, you might ask...? ^_^ BECAUSE I STOPPED BEFORE FINISHING ALL THAT FUCKIN WORK! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH! Once I saw the white backgrounds I knew I'd fucked up somehow and simply decided it was now time to crack open some books and do some reading and some google searching as well and that is how I found out that EVEN AFTER YOU CLEAN THEM OFF?! DON'T SAVE THEM TO JPEG BECAUSE IT WILL RECREATE THE WHITE BACKGROUND! Isn't that GREAT! ^_^ HAHAHAHAHAH, no it's not fuckin great! See it would be GREAT! If I had MY TIME THE WAY THAT I USED TO IN MY OLD APARTMENT! And I'd like to give a SHOUT OUT TO MY FORMER SURROGATE SON! Who knew FULL-WELL, hey!? I can't tell him that the technology he'd been waiting for and the means he'd been waiting for NOW EXIST FOR HIM TO SELF-PUBLISH! Cuz then he'll transition straight TO SELF-EMPLOYMENT! And then send me packing since I'm NOT ACTUALLY CARRYING MY WEIGHT WITH HIS IDEAS AND BOOKS! So that was KINDA WELL-PLAYED AND SNEAKY-LIKE, BUT NOT QUITE GOOD ENOUGH! With THAT TYPED! I am going to have to redo OR reopen these supposedly cleaned jpeg and see if I can SAVE THEM IN ANOTHER FORMAT, or!? I'll simply have to REDO THEM. Either way that is the gimmick I learned about. You can't clean backgrounds and then save them in jpeg. Unless you like wasting your time....
