    I thought this was great. I have a different method of saving selections so that I have all of them in one place. I delete all of the packground from the selection and save the remaining selection in the png format, I create a “selections” folder in my pictures area and save all selections to it. In this way I don’t have to remember on which files I saved the selections if I want to use them again. Clarke

    This video has some great tips – it finally shed some light on something that I’ve been trying to figure out all day!! It talks about how to combine images together in layers, into one photo. Hooray!

    just wondering if there is a cheat sheet that can be printed out with all the keyboard shortcuts, I am having a problem remembering all of them. It sure would help to be able to use them when going back to practice the steps from the video.
    great selections videos!!!

      I’m with Vivian, I really like to have the Cheat sheet! I could not find an answer to her/my question. Is there a cheat sheet for this tutorial? If so, how can I access it? TIA. Annette

    Thank you. I have been putting off doing some collages for my grandkids because i just couldn’t get it by reading about it. This did the trick.

    I’m really learning how to use elements after a long and frustrating time.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you.
    Looking forward to receiving the mag.
    This tutorial was great!

    Why is this a MPEG-4 movie; rather than a Quick Time like all the others? Hope you get your act together before my subscription runs out.
    I don’t know what a MPEG-4 movie is.

      It still plays with QuickTime, Thomas. It’s just a different file extension. We had been trying in 2009-early 2010 to see if we could fix some issues people had been having with video servers. This is probably just one that didn’t get change back, although it should play just fine on the site and as a download.

    When I click on ‘download this movie’ I seem to get a download of the ‘Selection Tools Part 2′ instead of the part 3!!
    Can’t see what I’m doing wrong.

    thanks for developing this video.
    There is so much in elements to learn. It helps to learn it one step at a time.

    The part about how to select something then move it to another background was very helpful. Thanks.
