One thing I've always struggled with is putting nice clean lines around my pictures (either before or after colouring), to the point that I -- well, I don't normally do it. Those of you who have a method, relevant links or other nifty stuff, please donate. Ta.

Some people swear by flash, other people by illustrator. Any sort of vector program is certainly one way to put a nice clean line around your picture but it doesn't always achieve what you want.
Links... are harder to come by... but I think Sheana might have a nifty technique.
Our choicest plans have fallen through, our airiest castles tumbled over, because of lines we neatly drew and later neatly stumbled over.
