  1. Is there a resource that I can learn about using dynamic brushes --- and how they differ from the standard brushes?
  2. Naturally --- AFTER I post --- I figured it out!!!!
  3. How do I use the embellishments below? I have attempted to put a photo into the embellishment by directly tto the design page and even attempted applying on a blank page - neither has been successful SNU_SSEMB_CurlTornFrames is representative of the ones I am referencing.
  4. In this month's club for the alpha - please clarify as this applies to all the files #1 folder - separate pngs --- it is my understanding that with the PC that I do not need these files and essentially can discard #2 folder - single png - why would this be a file to keep since it has no layers #3 folder - ACDSeePro 9 PSD (have never seen this file name) -- has 3 layers and assume this is the one I would want to keep
  5. How do I use these templates? All I have is one png file for each template. Thus, it only shows one layer when imported into PSE. Should there be a PSD file? Did I miss something in the download that I don't have a psd file for PSE? Naturally, when I go to insert a photo -- it only will show on the background layer
  6. Thank you --- it worked!!! I had no idea how to use this --- another learning experience that opens up new creativity. Sometimes PSE has so many features to explore --- and it gets overwhelming at times..
  7. Nov 15 SS Club included a folder of papers (LLO_SSpaper_kitchencounter). The papers are all jpg. To be sure, I attempted to colorize but was unable to do so as the colored paper just covered the paper template. Did I miss something in the download or is there a process for successful coloring?
  8. I don't very often use the forum -- seem to go in spurts. I was looking for an old post, but it appears only the 2015 are in my profile. Is there a way to access older posts?
  9. I thought that there was going to be a PSE 14 released this fall. I have not seen anything discussed and Adobe is not showing anything on their site. Maybe I was dreaming this??????????????? I have been holding off updating - have PSE 11.
  10. thank you, thank you, thank you. I never thought about doing that process - duh!!!! I just remembered on an older version that the sizes were available on a flyout menu. I need to be more adventursome in alternate processes since PSE does feature often optional ways to achieve the same result.
  11. In older PSE versions you had a flyout menu in the FONTS listing showing the font samples that would allow you different sizes (always chose large). Is there a way to increase the font samples on the menu in PSE11? As, the sample fonts are difficult to distinguish the differences acmongst the listing.
  12. I can't promise this is still a good number as it has been a few years since I contacted them ---- 800 833-6687. It is frustrating to have a problem and not be able to speak with someone. FAQs don't always have the resolution to an issue. Hope the number is still good for you.
  13. Thank you --NOW I understand the .5 and 11.5. I am the world's WORST when it comes to reading directions and interpreting them correctlly. In my mind, I was trying to apply both measurements to one side --- and couldn't understand why. Yep -- makes for a good laugh now, huh? NOW I see the logic --- LOL. It is little tips like this that are so helpful as I am sure I wouldn't have thought about it on my own. It is certainly something I am going to make a habit as it could save a lot of grief later on even if one doesn't things will not be printed.
  14. RE an article for USING PRESETS AND GUIDES (author: Melanie Crockett???). -- excerpt: On your new document click "View" on the menu bar along the top. On the drop-down menu, select "New Guides" from the bottom of the list. This brings up a menu that will allow you to set your Orientation and Position. I set two horizontal guides - one at 0.5 and one at 11.5 for each side of my layout, then I did the same with the vertical setting. Now I have guides around all four sides of my paper, and I will avoid putting anything important in these areas. The author mentions setting guides to avoid putting elements in areas that might be cuttoff during the printing of the page. That is a great recommendation as I don't know that I would have thought of that on my own. The vertical and horizontal are each set at .5 and 11.5 for a total of four lines. #1 - Aren't .5 and 11.5 the same --- allows for 1/2 inch allowance? Don't understand the difference between the two. When I did on a page -- it appeared to be the same. If there is a difference -- which is used for which side? #2 - Wouldn't more allowance on one side need to be considered for binding allowance -- and then it would have to be planned (left or right side) so that the correct side would be considered if double layout
