Hello all! I am excited to get started but I am also scared, I don't know much about photoshop so I will be touch n go and guessing alot... I would like any and all helpful info please ;) Also, I seen that many of you have your signature all pretty and you have links connected to your posts...I would love to do that too! I am from Michigan and a mother of 2 teens and currently attend a community college to get my degree in Medical office Administration. I used to own a small business online selling my moms homemade fudge, Rose Cottage Candy Shoppe was the name and was affiliated with Shabby Lane Shops. Would like to do another online shop again as soon as I get some things under my belt here!

Nice to meet you all!

Angel N.

Hello and welcome,

I second this recommendation. I still think of myself as new to Photoshop Elements and I'm gradually learning new techniques from reading the forum and newsletter. However, my husband bought me those videos and they are fantastic because they help you learn Photoshop, but from the perspectice of scrapbooking. I'm still working my way through them, but have already learnt new things.

The biggest thing I had to learn when I started use Photoshop was layers.

Hi Angel - Welcome to Scrap Girls! I think you might find a lot of people here who would be willing to trade photoshop tips for homemade fudge (LOL). But seriously, we do have tons of resources and lots of friendly, helpful people here.

Hi Angel :) Welcome to Scrap Girls! I'm learning Photoshop too (been a PSP user for eons) and finding that sometimes "guessing" brings some beautiful results. Up at the top of the Forum page there is a link to the SGUniversity there are some great tutorials posted there and might help you with getting to know the tools and what things do. Make sure you look in the right column, under University Tutorial Topics. Just play and have fun, Scrap Girls is a great place to learn.
