Once you try this will be HOOKED it is one of the most addictive things to do in any program i have ever owned

Read and practice  symbols along with the first part of this tutorial.
Then follow the SPIRAL from Symbol.
Create your spiral as instructed  and  export it as a png  BEFORE you start to play :laugh8:
When you have got  a good shape from moving your swirl...export it.

Teejay, if it were not for you, there wouldn't have been a tutorial!!!  I couldn't see the screen on that one site so you interpreted what was going on with the second half.  The symbols part was pretty easy and I can see how I would have loved that feature when I was designing web pages!  Can't count how many times I've changed button colors over the years.  I had to just re-make most of them.

The last part was the icing on the cake - using the swirls connected together like that.  :stars:
