Never Too Old To Learn New Tricks

I bought Adobe Elements 7 over a year ago, but only learned a few basics. Then, I discovered I needed Adobe Photoshop CS4 to really get things done.

Well, I get 30 days of free videos to learn all this Adobe stuff. Over the weekend, I spent many hours listening to the videos and taking notes. Now, the trick is to apply what I learned so far, before I forget.

Tonight I worked on removing blemishes and whitening teeth. The teeth one is hard, because I don't have a steady hand. Even with the minus tool for erasing, I'm still not very good at it. The remove blemish one I had more luck with.

Also, I had fun doing the panorama one. I did one of Rascal in the snow I may use for a book cover or illustration some day.

What about you? Have you played with Adobe? Or, maybe you've been learning something else lately. What is it?

    I've had Photoshop for the longest time and still have to open it up. Its been so long that the version may not even be supported any more.

  3. I try to avoid new software because I hate the learning curve that comes with it, so I tend to stick with what I know or talk my husband into showing me the basics of a new program.

  4. Does either have a pet eye tool to get rid of the glowing eye syndrome for pets? I know you can put layers with Photoshop of their eye color but that is a big pain in the tuckus. :)
