Anyone interested in training to be a designer? Let's help out these generous and talented designers! This thread can be for new and experienced Photoshop elements users. (PSE). My PSE 10 should b delivered 5/11. Can't wait!!
I bought my PSE 10 on eBay for $52.99 free shipping and it also included 2 other photo editing suites..Corelli paint and another one I can't remember. Best price I have seen!!!! ( it's for Mac or Windows)
I'm game! I just bought PSE and am enjoying learning how to use it. I don't think I'm creative at all so I think it's going to be a bit of a challenge. We will see! Oh, and my name's Emily just to introduce myself!
I actually have PS8 at work and at home (as I often do work things from home)
I took a mini-course from a local high school and while it was good and learned somethings about layers, and so confused when it comes to masks, and changing the look of things. The instructor was a photographer that only worked in the full PS. Lots of differences that he could not give us answers to on how to lots of things.
I would love to learn as much as I can!
Also, does anyone know how some of the DISigners get some of their blanks? I have search the web all over and still can not come up with some of the things they have.
Work at home... yup thats me to. Sort of when I work!
As far as blanks, I think a lot make their own as one said they take color pages and fill them in from scanning them that kind of thing. What kind of stuff are you looking for? maybe we can help each other!
make yourself some templates, especially a Mickey head. Make sure it is very clean. I have seen some people post DISigns where the Mickey head had little, what I will call spikes....not smooth at all. This really takes away from the professional look. Clean it up once and the work will be worthwhile. I have one I call BESTMICKEYHEAD.jpg and everytime I need a Mickey head this is there for starting the image. Simply cleaned up black head....no spikes and no halos of extraneous colors.
stay organized....be sure to bookmark (or make favorite) your favorite clip art sites. also organize your own files so you can easily locate things. I have a clip art folder on my hard drive that has subfolders for characters. If I need an Ariel, for example, I know right where to look. Halloween clip art? They have their own folder as well.
if I find a clip art image that I don't need immediately I still save it and will have when a request pops up and it is the perfect fit.
I'm Lisa...I'm a nurse in Pittsburgh, Pa.....my PSE 10 should b here tomorrow!!! I'm going away though so won't get it till Sunday. I'm gonna join the group that rust man suggested. So, to those beginners who just started...anyone startbwith name fills?? Easy?
