really?

Personally I dont see that, unless your refering to the building colour, but it was like that in person, was about 2pm so the sun was getting low ish and was striking the buildings front

Yeah the building.. Looks to be lacking in contrast & could prob benefit from a boost to the blacks too, but thats just my opinion! lol

I agree, the colour on it looks too similar on the front and sides, defo' needs a contrast boost also.......

Hope you dont mind.........let me know what you think;) cant do anything with those halos though

Yea, it's a good shot but the extra contrast helps. It also brings the greens back down to a more believable level.

The reflection is great though, couldn't have asked for better :)

=Matt 'Photog' Peters;11166291]I have try'd custom pages and manualy putting in the dimensions and used the template!
First sheet & test were perfect, now its not printing as it was.. If I adjust the top margin too much then I loose print at the bottom of the sheet!!
If I run a sheet of plain paper through then it prints perfectly where it needs to when compared to a sheet of labels, then I print the labels and it does it wrong again.. I can find anywhere in the properties to tell the printer its printing sticky labels either!?
I just don't understand why it will print perfectly on plain paper but completly wrong on the sticky label sheet?! Grrr...

Thanks for the help so far guys, keep it coming! lol

Hi Matt

I was just checking in to see what you guys had been up to lately and saw this thread.

If you havent given up the will to live over the lables, I can offer a couple of other suggestions to look at. Yes, I have had the same problem before, using my home pc - from memory, (am at work at the mo so cant check what I did previously) a quick solution was (after having the first page print correctly), I only printed one page at a time.

An area worth looking at in the template under Page Setup, is in the 'Layout' tab. It might have a tick in the 'different second page' - this would make subsequent lable pages print incorrectly, so if it has, then untick it.

Another area to look at is in the Table properties to see how the page is aligned and how the text within the cell is aligned - there might be something odd in there. If you arent too familiar with Word this might be pointless as you wouldnt necessarily know how to fix it lol.

If you are creating multiple pages of this lable template, I think rather than letting the temple create the second page, create your own second blank page and then copy the table grid over manually onto that second page. Sounds fiddly but I think I did this once some time ago to get over the problem. Check Page Layout again though and make sure second page of the document is not different from first page.

It can be a bit of a nightmare actually finding the problem and I dont think the printer is to blame as the printer wouldnt know what it was printing other than it was A4 paper. Its only if you know Word really well, that you can find and resolve problems like this. I dont particularly like Word 2007 myself.

By the way, what lables are you trying to print out?

im at work doing the usual trawl through flickr and get gear envy and hypothesise about upgrading my gear

@ anyone who is bored/wants to contribute - hypothetically would it be worth swapping a 450D, sigma 30mm, sigma 10-20mm (4-5.6 version), for a 5D and a sigma 50mm ?

Yes :D, but you will obviously lose the wide end, your 30mm was effectively 48mm on a FF anyways so not much change there

yeah im happy to lose the wide end - it hardly ever gets used and i might be able to sell my canon 50 to fund the canon 10-22mm. All hypothetically speaking of course.

Also would that be a good deal? for me or the swapper or both

Linda

I've had a couple of hours to compose my self now so might try again after lunch!!

I am only trying to print one page of the labels in A4, the sheets are Ryman L7160.. The margines of the sheet match up perfectly to what is on the screen so I tere is no problem there.. What I can't get my head around is how it will print on a plain sheet and line up when holding the sheets together but then when the label sheet is inserted for printing its completly off, it just makes no sense?!

Thanks for your help so far & I/we will get to the bottom of the promlem I'm sure!!

Matt
