    Fantastic… worth the wait…
    The layout is really well organized.
    This ease of use, with content at my fingertips- encourages my endeavors and seems to welcome my visiting/exploring more than some.
    THANK YOU…

    I am a true beginner, and feeling dumber by the day as I try to get a handle on this software! How did you get 3 different pictures on the same layer palette? Everytime I try to merge 2 photos, I get a new layer palette with each photo.

    Great instruction. Makes learning techniques enjoyable. Makes a somewhat difficult subject easier to understand.

    Dave Cross is really fantastic in presenting the material. He makes it very explanatory and fun to learn the material. Layers is the heart of the program and this video is highly recommended.

    I’m a 2-month long subscriber and enjoy this site very much; try to visit nearly every day and pick up a new tip or two. Videos like this are just great, but if I may offer a suggestion:

    Offer the 3-layered file for download so that the user can work along and practice. I realize that I can search my own files, but this, I think, would be very good for the beginner and helpful for others as well. It would just speed things along.

    Just a thought and thanks.

    I am just entering the world of layers and find the tutorial fascinating but a little fast to follow or even take notes. The tutorial starts with three separate layers of people on blank backgrounds. Forgive my ignorance but how did you achieve this first important step?

    I’d like to see the first step too.
    This video is only helpful to advanced users.

    First class tutorial. I am a relative newcomer to Elements but this tutorial was very informative and Dave’s presentation was fun but he made the content very interesting. Keep up the good work.
