Heres a series of photos where i used Paint to give the customer some ideas of what I could do for his front entry. I took a pic of his existing 8 panel applied mould door and super imposed on top of it from there. He seemed to like it and it was pretty quick to produce.

miles125, Nice demonstation. So Paint is a software. It looks like a really useful tool.
I like the last picture best. From your example I can cllearly see it is useful as a business.
Do you think it offers any advantage to recreational woodworkers?

Thanks everyone.
Bothus, Customer will hopefully pick one Monday. Roz, I think being involved in rendering and drawing ones creations is imperative to being a well rounded woodworker, no matter what skill level they happen to be..

Any suggestions from anyone on how i get these photos posted from flckr in a larger size?

Miles excellent job.
By the way for those who do not know, Paint is free.

I just wish I knew how to use it as Miles does.
