Default Ever wonder how to get started?

I did- for years I dabbled with photos in Photoshop elements 2. I never learned the skills necessary for digital anything. Finally after searching many times I came upon a site. ( I am not affiliated in anyway). Since I am deaf, attending classes is not an option and usually does not fit into busy schedules. I found ed2go.com and instructor Beverly Shultz. Gold mine! It is written so simply that my 9 year old granddaughter could read and understand it. It's a bit pricey and worth every penny. There are so many programs to choose from but this explains a very complicated program very simply and takes you step by step. Sorry to plug them but my only disappointment was that a class was not longer. Once you start it's so fun you won't quit. I eventually upgraded to Photoshop elements 9 since so many years went by and have no regrets. After investing many dollars in videos and tutorials, this was the simplest, easiest to read, hold your hand kind of class.

Raws,
There are three classes. Photoshop Elements 1, II and digital scrapbooking. I strongly suggest the Elements classes first. The reason is after Elements I, I really thought I was an expert but wow Elements II was even better- getting into the fun stuff. Scrapping was the icing on the cake. Good luck with your learning.
