I have spent much of my free and quasi-free time today trying to figure out my new photoshop elements 9 program. It didn't come with any directions, and I was going to buy a dummies guide book, but then all the reviews said you can get the same information for free on youtube. And it is true that there are endless tutorials. Some are amazingly helpful, and some tie you in knots they are so confusing. But my biggest problem is I don't know the exact wording of what I want to do... so....
I have figured out a lot of cool things with it though~ but for every one thing I figure out there are five more buttons I press that I can't seem to fully understand. Or, I will make something happen and go back to do it later and it doesn't work. I loved using photoshop when I was in college, but that was 10 years ago, and I don't have guiding teachers peering over my shoulder this time.
I know will get there though.
These are some messing around pictures. See those white blobs in the middle of the second picture? No matter what I did I could not make them something else. So frustrating.
