You can use any kind of picture editing software (I have photoshop, but it's a little extreme) and just use the eraser tool to get rid of stuff you don't want (assuming it's on a white background) and fill it in with your own text.

If you want some help, you can give me the template and I will get rid of anything you don't want so you can fill it in with your own information.

So what basic program would u reccommend for me to use? And yeah that would be GREAT if you would erase the stuff i dont want.

I want to use the raising gas prices one and the flyer for "Spring Training" with the baseball stuff.

Thanks!

Hmmm...I'm not sure about the software. Microsoft paint would be the most basic, but it doesn't give you a ton of flexibility, maybe Steve has some advice on that?

The mower on the gas surcharge flyer turned out a little funny because I had to transfer the flyer into photoshop as a pdf file and it made some of the colours a little weird. I managed to fix everything with it, except the mower, since my skills aren't quite that good.

I've saved one as a jpeg and the other as a gif, so you should be able to open the files with any type of photo software.

If you give me your e-mail, I'll send them to you, since the files seem to be too big to post up here.

Hey Luke,

I can't send it to that address because of the size of the attachments. I think it's probably because it's an e-mail address from your domain that doesn't have a ton of capacity. Do you have another address like a gmail or Yahoo I can send to?

Is it possible to download a free pdf editor and edit it that way or no?

yeah thats probably what happened. Try using LG_Yard_Service@yahoo.com

so I'm confused with PDF and all those terms. What is the difference between PDF and the way that UniversityLandscapers edited the flyer? What type did he use?

Thanks again!

Well the pdf format saves the file as vector based. That means it can be scaled without losing it's image quality.

Others on here are saved as a gif or jpg which is raster based. Those images can't be scaled without losing image quality.

As much as I can, I try to save the files in the best quality they can be saved and downloaded so when you edit them, you will get good results.

You can maybe take a screen cap of the pdf files and then edit them in a photoshop program and save them as a gif or jpg. I think that is what Dave was doing to edit them.
