aA News You Can Use

Today, I have some aA News You Can Use for this happy Friday.

aA News You Can Use

1. Around Here.

Life has been FULL of all the stuff we like to document.

  • Eric has been away.
  • Luke had a tooth extracted ready for braces.
  • Ella needed to see the optometrist for new contact lenses.
  • Back to school on a High School level – So much for me to learn as I never went through this school system.
  • Numerous conversations with teachers and counselors, as we try to figure out the best course of action, to ensure success and happiness for Luke at school.
  • Paperwork. Many a school syllabus.

It’s been an emotional roller-coaster kind of week leaving me wondering if I have some wonder woman sort of super powers 🙂

2. New DigitalART

    I am sad that your flowere class doesn’t include photoshop elements. I understand why, but sad not to be able to participate.

      Hi Terri,

      This class was originally intended for, and is conducted in Photoshop.
      It uses the Warp tool which I didn’t think was available in PSE.
      I have a student who enrolled in the class, not realizing this, who has been using the Filter> Distort> Liquify> Warp Tool.
      There are no additional instructions for Photoshop Elements but you would just switch out the Warp tool in Photoshop for that in Photoshop Elements.
      I had a little play last weekend and it’s actually a pretty good alternative for Elements users.
      I think the process might take a little longer, but the upside is you have a bit more control, how you warp the flower.
      I wish I had the same control in Photoshop, but it has given me some ideas to try for modifying this technique 
      This is what my Element user taking the class has to say:

      “This class was so awesome and fun because of the unending possibilities.
      As I went through the videos and practiced with Anna, I could hardly wait to get started making some of my own artsy flowers.
      Since I use Photoshop Elements, I had to come up with a work-around for the warping tool that was the key in Photoshop to make the magic happen.
      I used the Filter Distort>Liquify> Warp Tool. It worked but took a lot more time to complete. I had to do a little warping and then go back to the flower to see how it looked and kept repeating the process until I got it where I wanted it.”

      I now have several Elements users in class, and have decided it’s probably best, if I let you decide what you think?
      I’m telling Elements users to purchase the course, and if within 30 days you think it’s a complete waste of money for you, I would be happy to refund you, no questions asked.

      I hope this helps,
