Photoshop Elements Class

I’m done with my class – Up and Running with Photoshop and I thought I’d let you know how it went. The above page is plain so you know it’s one I did from scratch after watching the tutorial on how to crop the three photos.

It’s a self-paced 4 week class but of course, I had to work it at a faster pace. I focused more on process, than the content of my pages so I will probably go back and redo some of the earlier ones.

If interested, you can see the other finished pages too. Most of these were using the exact papers and layouts from the class – a few are a little more personalized.

For those interested in the class, I just want to caution – it’s a digital scrapbooking class and while you do learn the basics of Photoshop Elements (or Photoshop), it’s focus is on using the program for scrapbooking.

I had fun and will definitely take more classes but I will say, I wish the video had a pause button. I’m not one for watching something all the way through before trying it myself so I’d get behind when I couldn’t work a new task as quickly as in the video. However, each class was broken down into tasks so I could replay a certain task without replaying the entire video but I found it strange not to have pause, fast forward, and rewind buttons for the videos.

  2. I looked at the album and you did a great job! It really looks good!I remembered the class is for scrapbooking but I am thinking it will somehow help me with art quilts too.

  3. I play, off & on, with digital scrapbooking – I even have the 8.5X11″ photo printer. It is fun and very amazing at how fast the technology changes! There are several very good digital scrapbooking magazines out there that are worth looking at. I think it is a great way to organize photos in a fun way!Cheers!Evelyn
