    Eleptical Marquee Tool
    Draw small circle in the middle where the hands portrude from
    Fill it with a color
    Each hand should be on its own layer.
    See, you made the long hand to long!
    Click on the (long hand) layer (mark it as such)
    Use the eraser and shorten the to long hand.
    New Layer
    Click on T or press T on your Key board
    write the figures, each on its own layer
    Good there you are (!) now you can ad figures and pics
    but... each on its own layer.
    When finnish Shift/Ctrl/Alt/E
    and save the last layer you created as a Tif or JPG,
    and save everything as a PSD.

    Thanks David:)
    The reason I did it was not to show him how to make a clock face,
    but rather because of this words:
    this was thus a way to show him the very basics of PS.

    This was a pleasure, Richard. Playing a bit with what I said
    is a way to start learning using Photoshop.

    You are welcome in this newsgroup. Ask questions and study tutorials.
    What's wonderful about PS is the fact that it caters for different
    tastes. Whether you are a photographer, digital artist, photo editor,
    (we can ad to the list,) you will love having it in your toolbox.

    Which version of Photoshop do you have?

    Dave,
    Many thanks for the reply.
    I have an quite an ancient version I'm afraid, being version 7. Would
    you advice on updating? I'm just trying to get to grips with PS. Maybe
    a newer version would be easier, or should I stick with what I have
    for now....
    Any advice would be most excellent.

    Richard

    Exactly. Upgrading can be costly, which says you'll have to make sure
    whether you get bitten by the Photoshopbug. If it does bite you, it is
    incurable. Only then would you know what to do regarding upgrading.
