    In PE 10 I could not move the first image to the side. I watched several times and couldn’t see what I was missing. I loved the video. It sure gives me ideas. I would appreciate some advice on moving the image.

    Thank you so much for this cool technique!

    May I ask if there is a cheat sheet for this video? I know many of the videos have cheat sheets, but lately, there have not been any.

    I have tried this on PE 9, but couldn’t get the gradient steps 5 and 6 to work. It worked perfectly every time on my PE 11. I can’t figure out what I am doing wrong. This is a neat project in 11–easy and fun.

    I could listen to you reciting a shopping list and be interested! Love that southern-somethin’ you’ve got going on. You are a fab teacher, as well. Thank you.
