I get great use out the videos and PDF tutorials. My latest system of use with the PDF files is to download them to my newly acquired KINDLE, rather than printing them. I expect the savings in ink and paper purchases to pay for the KINDLE.
However, the way the information is jumbled up makes it difficult to read. Perhaps, future PDFs could be written in a straight forward manner.

Mastering even a fraction of the Photoshop Elements program is a challenge. I’m giving it a shot.

I’m still using elements 7, but ready to upgrade. Although since I have been using 7 I have had problems with share. Before 7 I could send pictures with no problem with my Yahoo web mail. Since using 7 all email is sent using Microsoft Outlook. Is there a setting to change this, I have not found one.
Also when entering a new contact it does not remain in the Elements contact list. I have to reenter each time I send a picture. Because of these problems share is of little use to me.

I just installed Elements 9 and have it configured to my liking but I’m stymied on how to minimize an open image in the workspace to the project bin.

I have been using Elements 9 since it came out, so mainly the basics. I’m excited to learn as much as I can to improve my photos.

Just finish the entire book PSE 9 CLASSROOM IN ABOOK. Ejoyed greatly and learned a lot. Had areas of trouble could not get the lesson guided edit OUT OF BOUNDS page 192 to work and the Gradient layer mask never worked as suggested in book. However was able to get out of bound to work following Diana Day procedure. could not get her article on gradient toool to work either.
