I realize this question may be ... remedial, at best.
I want to create some printables to distribute on my blog and in my etsy shop. The easy ones that are just straight images, I can handle. But I get stuck when I want to combine, say, a vintage image with an illustrated border. Or if I want to take one of my own drawings and turn it into a printable - but it needs cleaning up/a more illustrated look?
Photoshop isn't quite cutting it for formatting things like that - do I need to switch to Illustrator? (And if so, can you recommend any good Illustrator tutorials?)
What about using a tablet/pen - is that the way to go?
How do YOU go about creating printables?
Thank you so much for your help!!!
