Absolutely!!!! It's the first thing I've ever made, besides the letter "A" filled with Remy which took me forever...sad I know.

To make your pics not a background, right click them and hit duplicate layer then rename it. That apparently is what makes it "editable". At least that is what some sites have said. Thats what I had to do on the name fill tutorial.

once you are more comfortable with PSE, know that the web has zillions of free additional patterns, shapes, layer styles, gradients and brushes that you can install !!

Ctrl-J is a short key stroke that will create another layer of your background so you can change anything you want on it. Our instructor had us do that to EVERYTHING that we worked on. Don't forget to "save as" when you are done so you don't lose your primary graphic.

I have found alot online. I just don't know how to get them to work in PSE.

First I have to say thay you people are wild!

I have found that I use the short-cut keys ALOT! I also found some great information on the Dummies website. They even have a chart showing the short-cut keys and believe me they are a HUGE timesaver for me.

Since it seems I am surrounded by nurses...which I am not (my mom is though!) I will share what I do! I am currently an office administrator at a church. Basically I'm a church secretary with a lot more responsiblity and duites. I use PSE8 to make church bulletins. Actually all I really use it for is to fix or adjust pictures, graphics and clipart so it works on what the theme of the day is. I really want to learn how to use PSE8 to create things instead of just adjusted things.
Everything that I do fix I then put into Microsoft Publisher and do what I need. In fact I created a Mini M & M tube wrapper for my upcoming FE gift exchange just last night. I "fixed" the picture in PSE and then created the wrapper in Publisher. I would LOVE to learn how to create the whole thing in PSE8. Is that possible?

Thanks!
Stephanie

I think it would be possible, as you can set up size and such. Plus when working with the layers I could see it working well. I have done complet journal pages and such now, and just adjusted templates as I needed them.

I also love using the short cut keys.... Thats pretty much all I have been using in a lot of cut and paste stuff! I tend to forget there are other ways!

I do office stuff as well, I am a assistant to a OT (occupational therapist). basically i organize her day, anwser emails, phone calls that kind of thing!

Again, sign up for ElementsVillage.com forum....many of the questions are already answered there and it doesn't seem appropriate to rehash them here on a Disney forum...experts have answered there.

ElementsVillage very clearly explains how to install new brushes, layer styles etc. into PSE !!

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.
