I'm in.

Bought the download from amazon.com last night. Stayed up until past midnight fooling around with it. I used to do a lot of digital scrapbooking with Microsoft Picture-It until MS stopped making it, and I lost all the CDs involved. I want to get back into that, and do some name fills as well.

Once DH gets off the computer.

If you check out one of the threads below, it will have a list of different designers, and what they do, plus it will have the link to the specific requests. Some have certain info they need.

Good Luck

Welcome!

I don't know if any of the DISigners use the full Photo Shop product, which starts at around $600+ and goes up in price as you add on features. It's on my dream list.

Take a look at the fourth post on this sticky (found near the top of this board)
http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2430262

Many of the DISigners use Photo Shop Elements (PSE), Paint Shop Pro (PSP) or PhotoImpact (PI) to create their beautiful disigns. All are available for purchase online or you might find them at your local software or office supply store. you can usually find them for under $100 online.

This thread was started to help new DISigners using Photo Shop Elements 10. RustManFan and some others have graciously shared various tips to help us learn the software.

So I d/l the Elements 10 trial and after 6 hours, I still can't figure out how to make a pluto image I saved on my computer a "background" so I can layer it. Everytime I add it to the project it keeps coming up as an 'index'. I'm so confused.

I am using Elements 5.0 so I am sure things have changed quite a bit but in mine, this is how you change it.

Up on the top menus, choose Image>Mode>RGB Color. This should change the indexed picture to a picture with RGB color.

I hope this helps!

Scrapbooking/Designing

Hi! Im Katie. Ive been digi-scrapping since about 2007. I took 2 years off while in nursing school but now I'm back at it full force!

There are other programs that people use to scrapbook besides Photoshop. I use Photoshop Elements (which is different from CS4, CS5...) I know some people use a program called Creating Memories and ive heard of a free program called Gimp. I worked with a woman before who used ACeeDeeCee (spelling?). I really only have knowledge with PSE. I started with version 6, upgraded to 8 after nursing school graduation. I recently bought 10 but honestly havnt even installed it yet... From what i can tell from the adobe website there arnt too many changes from one version to the next.

I someone is interested in digi scrapping and has never done so before, i usually start them at scrapgirls.com They have a free e-book about how to get started in digi-scrapping.

When i started i read a book called "the missing manual" it helps a lot but was more geard towards photo editing than scrapbooking.

I recently found a website/forum/store called mousescrappers.com this WHOLE forum is all things disney and scrap booking. They offer links to digi stores, tutorials, templates, and people post their pages for others to view and "scraplift".

If you want to get into scrapping there are THOUSANDS of websites/blogs where people create beautiful kits and templates that you can use not just for disney but anything! And there are tons of freebies around too!

to search freebies try: digiscrapdepot.com

I saw a post where someone had mentioned they had downloaded brushes and scripts/actions. These can be amazing add ons to what PSE can do however, it can be a little challenging trying to install and use these tools especially if you're new to PSE and dont really know your way around the included tools yet.

Hope this helps some of you with questions!!

Katie Ann

Question HELP!!! I feel Lost

So after having a few things created I decided to try this whole thing. I downloaded a trial of PSE10 & went at it. I am so stuck & lost . I watched the tutorial that someone had posted, but it only helped a little.

I am doing a name fill and I have the word selected, but I don't see a way to float in PSE10. I am stuck & google hasn't helped. My husband is a graphic designer, but he doesn't use PSE10, so he can't/won't help (unless I start using InDesign).

I am hoping that some super sweet & helpful person on here can tell me what to do next!

Thanks in advance, y'all rock!
