Now we’re rolling!!!! PDFs’ or “cheat” sheets to give one the directions in the videos is definetly better than rewinding and trying to write the directions in the video down; if you’re really into learning as many ins and outs of elements as you can.

David Cross is without exception the most creative individual on this planet bar none.
I have not only enjoyed his creative teaching style since I have used the Photoshop elements user site but I have learned more from David than anyone else – anywhere – to date.
Effective Teaching is a very difficult profession in and by itself. David has not only mastered Photoshop as a professional but as a teacher as well. His style is unmatched when you combine his own creativity and wonderfully entertaining & masterful way he manages all of his movies or articles.
I always have a smile on my face and a chuckle after viewing his creative teaching style movies and I always Learn something new every time. As he denotes – I always try to make his instructions work in other ways. Play with your imagination and use his instructions as a base to improve your own creativeness.
Start – stop – review – search –” Be Creative” is what he makes you want to do!
Fantastic & Enjoyable to listen to and LEARN from!
There is nothing more anyone could ask for from any instructor anywhere and yet he takes learning to an even higher level. How lucky and fortunate we all are to enjoy David’s creativeness
Thank You – Thank you for all you do and all are. You Are The (Photoshop) Man !

This tutorial was fun to do. Good to practice with the polygonal lasso tool. I used the Quick Selection tool instead of the Magic Wand.
