I'm not sure this is the right place for my q, but I figured it couldn't hurt. When I can't find elements for a scrapbooking page I am working on, I make it in cs3 and then print it, but the edges are always grainy. Is there a way that I can prevent this? Knowing how to make them look sharp would give me soo many more options for embelishements for my pages.

are you creating it at 300 dpi? thats my first thought, that maybe you are creating at a lower resolution.....
hope that helps!

Here's a link that explains how to change the resolution:

When you first tell it to open a new canvas there should be an area to put in the resolution (some programs that's under an 'advanced' tab).

yup - when you open a new doc. in cs3 - underneath where it lets you pick the size, there'll be a tab that says resolution. Yours probably says 72 - thats why you're getting a grainy print. change it to say 300 pixels/inch and you should be all good.
good luck!
