Always Room for Improvement

No matter how good we sometimes think we are using a particular software or preforming a specific task, we can always learn something new.

Although I’ve been using Photoshop for many years and have used the program to create digital scrapbook pages, I recently enrolled in the  Scrapper’s Guide classes offered by Linda Sattgast. I’m glad that I signed up for the “beginner lessons” first and not just the “advanced.” During the very first lesson, I have learned how to use Adobe’s Camera Raw to edit images. This sure beats my previous attempts that I call “guess and by golly.” Class benefits include scrapbooking kits and templates, instructional videos (designed for Photoshop or Elements), and a classroom forum and gallery.

I created the scrapbook page using the papers and element kits provided for class one (“All I Have To Do Is Dream” by Lauren Grier). The page illustrates the use of Camera Raw to enhance the old polaroid photograph taken in 1970. Seated: Alice M.
