Would like to post a template for everyone, but...

Hi all,

Normally all the content I work with is proprietary so I can't share anything with the community. For a recent course I created a template from scratch and would like to share it with the community. There's one catch... I purchased an image from Dreamstime.com which is integral to the template.

I saw that Zara posted one of her templates and mentioned the source was Getty images so others could purchase the rights. I'd like to try a different approach.

Is there anyone out there who has a few free minutes who could take a concept and create something in Illustrator or PhotoShop and make the result available via Creative Commons? Essentially we'd need a set of industrial doors  (without the icons). In the course it is two separate image files that are animated to open and close. See the pic below for an idea. I don't have the fantastic skills of the others in the forum with Photoshop but would love to share the template.

Any takers?

Thanks for the mention. I really appreciate it.

I am no Photoshop expert, I am actually just beginning to test out the program. I started messing with images in Artweaver. It is free and fairly easy to use. I recommend messing about with it for kicks.

With respect to your image I have an idea. How can i get the source file? Please DM me.

Steve!

Those are great. I'm downloading them now. Zara was also going to take a look with me too. Between the three of us I'm sure this will work out.

I'll try them in the course template tonight and hopefully make a link available to everyone tomorrow.

Thanks for sharing and helping out.

I LOVE THESE FORUMS!

I want to say a big thank you both Steve and Zara for their help on this one. Steve's doors look great and Zara provided valuable feedback as well. I also want to acknowledge Kevin Thorn and his awardwinning Turfgrass course for the inspiration for this originally.

Here is a template I created for a course related to Health & Safety for the utility company I work for. I've changed out a couple of images so you can use the template without copyright worries. (I've included a couple of links in case for the images in case you want the originals). I didn't have time to do a Screenr about it but perhaps I'll get to that at some point.

Please feel free to use or modify this as you need to. Enjoy!

GREAT JOB! Thank you so much for sharing. 

You know, I have NEVER joined a community before because I just couldn't stand the way all of the adults suddenly turned into snarky teenagers. (I also turn off the comments feature of YouTube when I post because I'm chicken)

But I am constantly impressed by this group and so greatful to be a part of it. Thanks to all of you for your all around awesomeness!

I couldn't agree more. I tell everyone that the greatest part about the community and its managers is that it is an open environment for everyone. Newbie, Dabbler, Corporate, Consultant, Expert, Guru and everyone else too. You also don't have to be in eLearning to participate or be involved. It is just super fantasticalness.

A quick interpretation completed entirely in PowerPoint with shapes, fills and simple motion paths in less than 5 minutes. Would take a bit more time if I was using it in a client presentation - I like the outlined effect and the hazard stripes in the original and the Fireworks files. Could be easily accomplished in PPT with some effort.
