Take Me to Your Leader
Okay, the lady is going a little kooky because she just got Photoshop Elements 7. She's wanted Photoshop since she took a Dreamweaver website design class at a Community College a year and a half ago, and they had Photoshop on the computers. She kept telling herself she would save up for it. Yeah, like that was ever going to happen.
She mentioned to Mishkat that she was saving up for Photoshop and Mishkat gave her some good advice--that she should check into Photoshop Elements. Now, the lady had some vague memory of hearing about Elements, and she thought it only did a few basic photo editing tasks, so she never even investigated it. But, this time she did some research and was surprised to find out how much stuff could be done in Elements. Plus, the cost was very, very reasonable ($99 with a $20 rebate versus about $600 for the "big" Photoshop).
So, she bought it! She is having fun exploring all the cool stuff you can do in it. She thinks it is like the "big" Photoshop, but without all the stuff you never use. I mean, it has layers, filters, effects, and every tool you could want! She knows that she has a lot to learn, and she is experimenting with photos as a way to learn how to do stuff.
So, dear blogger viewers, I fear you may be subjected to her strange photo manipulations and odd creations for awhile. Because I need her secretarial skills in order to post to this blog, I will have to indulge her enthusiasm. As long as she doesn't play me for the fool.
