You’re right about the superiority of the smaller graphic background. Small is beautiful.

You are more the artist than I. I confess to have never worked with any of the graphic effects. 
I tried all the different inks on the kaleidoscope image and none of them did much for me.
If any of the kids do more than just play with the app, I might look into it.

But the question I asked earlier got lost in all the snapshot talk.
I’ve seen the mention of the public version of LC.
Is that something I could upload to the library computers for the kids to work with? 
Now public is it? Is it a crippled version of the commercial version?
Sorry, you see I haven’t been paying much attention.

(Damn, this MacBook Air locks up a lot under Maverick, and I mean a forced restart of the computer. I haven’t had a OS X crash like this on me for years. They say they’re working on it, but its been a long time now.)
