Hey ladies, I am soooo glad you asked this question because I teach Photoshop and PS Elements on my site and I see some of you are using one or the other but don't know how to do all the WONDERFUL things it can do.
Yes, I teach it to do your scrapbooking but I also teach how to work with your photos. As a matter of fact I'm writing a lesson right now on just that so go check it out at http://digitalscrapbooklessons.com and let me know what you think. (BTW this lesson will post in a few hours - about 6:00 AM so wait till then if you're up late - well late my time.)
I use Photoshop and Elements and truthfully they're a LOT alike especially in working with your photos. Good luck!! And don't forget to GFC and get my newsletter so you can get reminders to check out all the, of course, wonderful stuff I post for you!!
