Photo Etching at Home

#1

Post by smeg1959 »

Interesting YouTube clip covering DIY photo etching. ShelfOddity, Brengun, et al need not fear but it could be a solution to the odd "one-offs" we sometimes find we need. Actually, the YouTuber responsible (PLASMO) has some really handy tips, as does Paul Budzik's collection of vids. And I am finally starting to appreciate that I am more of a "visual learner" than anything else ... only took me 58 years to acknowledge it. :roll:

YouTube has saved the day on many occasions, on a whole host of topics, where written directions or narratives have failed.

Don't get me wrong, over the years I have realised it's a lot harder than it would seem to write great how-to, training or user guides. That said, its very frustrating with modern systems we deploy where users complain about training for systems - then merrily go home and use a whole host of desktop and mobile software / websites and without a jot of training... I'll probably now find there is a YouTube guide on xyz (not that I've heard anyone claiming to have YouTube how to use Facebook or Snapchat)
