At the suggestion of Jim Groom (@jimgroom, on Twitter), I have located some pleasantly-Village-esque striped shirts that members of the Summer 2015 Community may wish to investigate as potential additions to their summer/fall wardrobe.

There is no guarantee as to quantity — and you will need to determine if the size you need is available in the colours of your choice – but each of the shirts in the image above was sourced today on eBay and is available new from several dealers. You are responsible for your own purchases! Links are provided below for your convenience.

The shirts, as seen above, are available in the following combinations:


I was in the process of using the beautiful background image above for Visual Assignment 1731: Camp Poster when I switched gears and sourced the other colours of shirts on eBay. Thinking they would look more at home in The Village rather than just set against a white background, I cropped each one (Magic Wand tool, eraser) and then tidied the edges with Select>Refine Edge before bringing them into the poster file and placing them in front of the image. I then re-jigged the title, and set the frames and timings at 2.0 seconds  in the Timeline. I used the Tween option in the Timeline menu to create the transitions between each of the six images, with 3 frames added between each. Transition frames are set to a timing of 0.1 seconds each.
