Gosh, I gotta think alittle harder about maybe signing up for this class. I am on a CT team & it sure would help my designer if I understood better how things work-to make blinkies, banners etc. this class would be good for Ct's too!!

I can't wait to get started

Yes, Amberpony, PS7 will be perfect :-) (in fact that is exactly what I design with :-)
AWESOME!!!! I will definitely be taking this course after the holidays!!! I just got PS7 as an early b-day gift, I'm so excited! I've been working with PSE5, so I have to better acquaint myself with all the new features in PS7! Thank you so much for offering this course, Sherah!

Well I will talk to DH again tonight and see if I can get PS7 going again in my old Laptop. I really want to do this. Heres to hoping I don't kill the old Laptop in the process :p

Hope to be signing up tomarrow.

A Friend wants to pay for the class.
But life happened big time today and the old laptop that runs PS7 is reminding me why I got a new Puter last fall.
I am going to give that old timer another talking to and see what tomarrow brings There is still time to sign up right.

Well, I'm signed up.....let's see how far I can get with PSE. I still don't understand something. Is PS7 an older version of the CS2/3? I searched photoshop but only saw Elements and CS3. Maybe I should look into PSP as I can't afford the CS2/3 software. Looking forward to the class! Will email you later after I check my Yahoo Messenger. Haven't used it in ages. I always use AOL messenger.

LOL! I'm in the eastern panhandle of WV, Skrapper! How far away are you? I may need you standing over my shoulder on this. LOL!

Yes, PS7 is an older version of PhotoshopCS. I just purchased mine about 2 weeks ago through e-bay for about $90 plus shipping.... best deal I found, I couldn't pass it up!! It doesn't have all the extra features that CS has, but as a starting point, it's perfect!! And, I've heard that many designers create on PS7!! I've been using PSE5, which is a great program, but I wanted something that worked a little better with actions, curves & channels! PSE5 doesn't offer these options, unless you do a little "reprogramming" or buy plug-ins!

When you get PS7 down you can use it to upgrade to CS3 for just $200. So that was $90 well Spend. Congrats
I was looking at mine last night and Wow I had forgotten all the great goodies in it.

If I am not mistaken PaintShopPro does about 95% or more of what the full version of Photoshop does for only $100 vs $600 or more.Is this correct?

WOW! I definitely want to do this course, but I didn't quite understand if it is being offered for PSP yet or just PS7. I use PSP9, is the up and coming course on the 8th going to be compatible with PSP?

I've never used CS or PS, so I can't compare, but I love my PSPX2, and we got it super cheap, around $35. My sister searched for OEM versions, which is the same software, but without the big box and the thick manual, and then ordered copies for all the main computers, since the price was so good. I'd been using PSP 8, so I was already familiar with the software, but Diane never used it before. I found the manual at the library for her, and she never even opened it. She was able to figure everything out by just playing around and using the help screens.
