Any suggestions on how to organize this thread?

Would love to do topic specific like " name fills".
Let's keep this thread specific to PSE 10 users....unless u experienced PSE users think that would limit us??????

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!

YAY to this thread! I am getting into creating, trying to put together a journal for my sons next trip and my friends girls!

Plus did a few name fills and stroller tag! I am learning but get some really great ideas from here!

This is my photobucket album!http://s1270.photobucket.com/albums/jj612/monkey30ca/

Looking to learn more tips and tricks as you do.

Oh and I got PSE10 at staples for $80 when they had it a few weeks ago. Its higher then what you paid, but I find software in Canada usually is!

I love to join this group too!

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.

Thanks!!!

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.

Subbing

another RN here....L&D background but current SAHM.
Just got a Mac for Mother's Day from my sweet DH. I have played with PS on my laptop and now I need to get PS10 for the Mac

I'm currently working on autograph books for our trip in Aug. Have made some pages on my own and used some ideas from the many talented disigners here.

Looking forward to learning with everyone!!!

Monkey30, your name fill looks good! I especially like Minnie and Daisy above it. My only recommendation would be to add a thicker border to increase readability.

I guess I gotta get a Mac too! All the other nurses have one!



DH would strangle me if I get one more thing! Just bought all my landscaping for the lake house! I planted a huge herb garden this year, it looks wonderful. Love planting. I might have to sell my work I do on PSE10 might have to sell herbs too! Lol @ monkey, I'm not even speaking to you, ur design is ridiculous! Your not a newbie anymore either. It is awesome!!!!

Do u ladies like ur Mac? Do you have the laptop or the desktop??? I may have to pick up some OT days and surprise myself with a new Mac! I've been eyeing it up. I think I promised him I would pick up a few OT shifts since I bought enough plants for a 10,000 square foot house and ours is only a fourth that size, ....

Today is outside work too, so no PSE10 time, maybe I should of waited till winter, lol.

U guys are such quick studies!!! I wish I could cheat off u guys, lol.
Keep up the good work!
