    Today I am making my Christmas gifts for family -- I have scanned a bunch of historical photos, and am slaving over a hot G4 to retouch and restore them and print them out on high quality photo paper for family.

    One I just finished is a 120 year old photo of my daughter's partner's great-grandmother, smaller than a postage stamp, the only one in existence, and mildewed :( . I've just scanned it at 3200 dpi, photoshopped it for - well a good long time - printed it out 4 x 6, and it came out pretty dang good, if I say so myself. I think they'll like it.
    (Thank you, Adobe and Epson, for the tools)

    Anyone else making things or doing artistic presents this year?

    Some of my cousins just when to Italy. I borrowed all their video footage and pictures because I told them I wanted to see them. I'm making a DVD of all their combined adventures. I've added music, transitions, captions, etc. I thought it would be nice because otherwise they have to hook up their DV cameras and play the video that way.
