My frienemy

I have a love/hate relationship with Photoshop elements.
I love what other people can do with it.
I hate that I suck at it.

So I did what I thought was the best thing to do.
I signed up for a Photoshop elements class at my local community college.
Then I found out I have a business trip and will miss the third class.
Undeterred I went to my first class last night only to find out that;

1. I am the youngest person in class by a good 25 years.
2. The syllabus lists the third class as having everything I want to learn.

Am I the only 30 something person that couldn't read a book or fiddle
with Photoshop and learn it really well???
Don't answer that, clearly I suck.
I'm hoping I get something out of it despite missing the best class.
Lucky for me I found out that they will be giving an advanced class next semester.
I suppose I'll have to pony up for that one too.

ooo I do hope it helps Autumn. You will love it when you learn how to use it. :) I need to send you a link to Christina's blog. She does some nice tutorials.

now your depressing me...I just ordered that program for my web design class! I have Photoshop and feel the same way about it-I really need a class to really learn how to use it.
Good luck with the class...maybe you could send me what you learn? :)-

mmmmm.... photoshop. I have no photoshop. I used to use it quite a bit about 11 years ago. I'm sure its improved some since then. You'll be fine, have fun in your class.

Shall I send The Fixer round to give you some extra lessons?

Good for you though! It'll be so worth it in the end. I know when i downloaded the trial version, I was quite useless except for 5-10 functions. For software that powerful, it's so worth it to learn it inside and out...but still sucks you missed that one class.
