I'm with Valerie...sorry! I don't know anything about that program. I do know Photoshop Elements was SO frustrating for me to learn...until I got these videos: Scrapbook Software Secrets Revealed: Photoshop Elements - Downloadable version They are worth EVERY penny...I regret not buying them sooner!!
Good luck! I'm sure someone will be along that can answer your question! Don't hesitate to post questions! That is what we are here for!

PSE has a slight learning curve, but the videos that Conda recommended are great! They will teach you the basics so you won't feel as frustrated

I just began digital scrapbooking in March 2012. I purchased Ro's videos: Scrapbook Software Secrets Revealed: Photoshop Elements - Downloadable version and More Secrets Revealed. They were VERY VERY helpful to me with digital scrapbooking. Afterall, I wanted to get started NOW--I created my first page that night and hadn't yet finished all of the videos! LOL Hope this helps!
Suggestion: if you can find a high school or college that offers a Photoshop Beginner class (some are $15 for 6 wks or so), you will master the tricky learning curve. The two programs, PS and PSE, are very similar. I remember the concepts of layers and masking were tricky. But, I think you will find that Ro's videos clear up the confusion and offer some great ideas!
And, the girls at ScrapGirls have been soooo helpful and friendly. When I need help to obtain a certain "look" on a page or don't know the use for certain tools, I simply asked, and like this message board (MB), I get several suggestions.

You have come to the right place to learn and I do suggest that if you still have PSE on your computer.... learn to use it as it is a wonderful software for scrapbooking. When I first joined here way back in 2008 I did not know much at all but so many members here helped and also the videos mentioned by others are definitely worth using to learn from.
If you do start using the PSE, do not be hesitant to ask any questions.

I'm going to agree with the others, keep at Photoshop Elements it is really well worth the effort. I started out with Paint Shop Pro which is also a good program but moved to PSE when I got a free copy with some other hardware I bought. I used Ro's instructions when I started out and I was soon able to produce some nice layouts. The other advantage of using a software that other members use is that help is really just a message away.
I hope you get as much pleasure out of being a "Scrap Girl" as I have!

Welcome to Scrapgirls, but the way. I hope you figure it out so we can see your grandkids.

I say the same as everybody else here, Ro's videos really got me through the first difficult PSE time. I highly recommend it!

Don't hesitate to ask questions. Others out there will be wondering the same thing, and they'll all be glad you asked. Having said that, I (like many others) started digiscrapping with proprietary software, got frustrated with its limitations, but was afraid to jump into PSE until I got video tutorials. That was back with PSE2, and I've never looked back!
