Thanks for the tutorial regarding fitting text around an odd shaped object. I would like to cut out a sillouette of my Morris minor and place text inside the resulting shape (for our club magazine).

Your assistance would be welcome as I would like to learn how to do this. Thank you. Alan

Absolutely brilliant, watched nearly all of them now and find it the best tutorial ever! Thanks.

great tutorial again, this programme never stops to amaze..the possibilities seem infinite, thank you for showing us that Dai

Cool!!! I was wondering how you did text flow around around different shapes & I really like the way you were able to use just part of the image in the shape

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Dai
