How to print more than one page from an embedded scribd document

Ok, so you have a crappy powerpoint, or word document embedded on blog, because that web designer of yours insisted on you using wordpress for your website. He went on and on about "how easy it would be to work with it."

BUT now that you’ve got your document embedded,  somebody called you and said:
szkj4yat

And you think to yourself "What in the world does that mean?"
and you send an email to your designer, and say:
ubxvtzxa

and your designer says:

what the deal is, is when you go to the page, where the document is embedded

and click the "print" button, it only wants to print the current page that you are viewing.

See? it even says so…

1. click the download button, and save that sucker to your harddrive.

defining and using custom patterns in Photoshop

I’m using Photoshop CS4, but this works with several versions as well.

step 1: Open whatever you want to use to make the pattern,

step 2: Copy and Paste that design into a new  document,
Black and white, or transparent backgrounds work the best.

step 10: double click on the effects you put on your white layer.
if you can find it…. it’s under layers / layer effects.

 

step 11: If by some miracle you’re back to this window…
By jove, you’ve done it.
