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.

I agree with Marion ( AKA RustManFan) on the "Have a Filing system".

I just filed all my stuff again and feel so much more organized.

Now I have to back up all my clip art and DISigns onto a USB Key.

I've experienced a few computer crashes and had to start collecting images from scratch all over again.

One of these days I'm going to try a professional program but for now Paint.net works for the stuff I do.

Have fun and don't forget to post your DIDigns.

Hugs Mel

Thank you for the tips!
So heres a idea once you all get going in the next week lets try a weekly challenge, something to challenge us to learn different things? What do you think?
