    Great information presented at the meeting! Learned about many of the other uses for Photoshop

      So very glad you learned some new things, Brede. I was so hesitant to even offer because I just wasn't sure how much others used PS and if everyone knew what I was planning to demonstrate. So very glad it was new to you.

    Nice, friendly and informative.

      Thanks, I really appreciate hearing that. It was hard for me to take the leap because I know we're all photographers and I have just assumed everyone did similar stuff in PS. Sorry I wasn't able to do all I'd planned because of difficulties with the equipment but at least we were able to do some of it.

    Great meeting, good turnout. Thanks for sharing from your vast experience. Makes me want to delve into Photoshop yet again.

    • Patricia H.

      Thanks, Mark, even if you never digital scrapping per se it is still fun to see other things that PS will do that you don't necessarily do all the time. Glad you enjoyed it.

    Need to work out the connection problem with the projector.

    • Patricia H.

      Ah well, we tried and we do what we can, right!!

      October 4, 2013

  • Patricia H.

    Ah, I had also mentioned different print companies and thought I'd list at one or two of the ones I use: Shutterfly, Snapfish, and haven't used iovio but it seems to have some interesting (nice) pricing. If you've had any experience with any of these or have other suggested printers please feel free to share your suggestions/comments.

    • Patricia H.

      Oops goofed on the printing company it should have said Viovio.

    Hey everyone, Patricia here...even with the snaffoos with equipment tonight (projector, computer, mouse, version of PS, etc.), I hope you enjoyed a bit of an introduction to digital scrapping. I do have to apologize; however, for the somewhat scattered nature of the "lesson" because I wasn't able to use all the files I'd intended. I said I'd send some sites you can check out RE: digital scrapbooking. So here are a few: http://www.digitalscrapper.com, http://scrapgirls.com/, http://www.scrapwow.com/, and http://raspberryroaddesigns.net/. These are some of my favorites.

    For those not at the meeting tonight we talked mostly about and had a really simple introduction to what you can do in Photoshop for creating digital scrapbook pages. I had two different questions after the meeting. 1. Do I teach digital scrapbooking? (YES) and 2. Will I work with someone to create a scrapbook for you? (YES). If you're interested in either please feel free to email [masked]

    I guess I need to come out of the cave more often. I had never heard the term digital scrapbooking before. Here is a review of the top 10 sites. ://scrapbooking-software-review.toptenreviews.com/mobile/

    October 3, 2013

    • Patricia H.

      Yeah, Mark the only problem in this review is that they left off THE most popular and BEST (in my opinion of course) software out there...we'll talk about it at the meeting tonight...hehe (BTW if you're not on a mobile device remove the last word and last two slash marks to see the website better on a computer. I'll have a number of web sites tonight if you want to pursue this further.

    I don't have Photoshop but I'm super excited to learn something new!!

    Marco, I had volunteered to do some PS scrapbooking and blending with photos this month but have not heard whether I am actually the speaker. I have a TON of material if you want me to do it. I have everything I'd need except a projector for getting my computer on a wall or whatever.

      Hey Patricia, I digi-scrap too! Let me know if you need help or want to tag team for the presentation for whenever you do it. I would be glad to help! I'm hoping to get my foreign exchange student into doing it while she is here!

      October 1, 2013

    • Patricia H.

      Hey, Kristie, that's totally awesome...I'd love to meet some people who digiscrap as well...I will be doing the presentation tomorrow night and would love to have any input from you. If we had more time to prepare it would be great to tag team and maybe we can do another presentation and do it then.

    Same Question as Ross , do we need to bring anything : camera,laptop,notepad?

    October 1, 2013

    • Patricia H.

      Greg, IF I am actually doing this months presentation then no you don't really need anything because it would not be a "follow along lesson" so much as maybe some new possibilities for those who haven't done digital scrapbooking and some blending possibilities in Photoshop. But I haven't heard yet for sure if it is me so keep on hold somebody else could already be scheduled.
