Photo block - how to?

I am new to PSe, but not new to photo editing. I have been using Digital Image Suite, by Microsoft for quite a while and really enjoy it. I see some things done with PS that just can't be done with DIS - so I am determined to learn!

I saw some fantastic images in the gallery, and was wondering if there were turtorials for them somewhere. I have tried searching - to no avail.

The images I am most interested in learning the technique for are from JenClark

Any help pointing me in this direction would be appreciated!

Thanks!

There are many tutorials here, both video and written, some by our hosts (KW Media) and some by other member/subscribers. Most of the tutorials available will be in the subscriber area, including some of the techniques you were looking at in the gallery area.

I know that $49 sounds like a lot for a 'pig-in-a-poke' where you can see what you get for the money. But it really is a great value. At this point there are 200 short video tutorials and many written ones. Plus, you get a magazine-type newsletter with even more tutorials mailed to you 8 times a year--all for about the same price you would pay for just about any one computer software book in a bookstore. This is put together by the same folks who publish Photoshop User Magazine, except our newletter has better paper. Cheaper than a class; cheaper than a one-day quickie seminar and cheaper than months of frustration. I don't work for the company, but was someone who hemmed and hawed about subscribing for months, myself, and it is my personal recommendation. Oh, I almost forgot. Subscribing will get you your own gallery too.

Hi Barb ...

... and welcome to the forum

As Vicki said it really is worth subscribing ... there are so many techniques covered in the tutorials. If you go to this page and scroll down a little you will see some sample tutorials ..

Thanks

I did subscribe last night - I also thought it would be a great resource! I have spend a little time browsing the forums and it looks fantastic.

I did figure out I needed to purchase "BoxIt" (and I did, ) to be able to make that effect. I need to work more to get it just right - but I did get it installed and fiddled with it a bit last night.

Thanks for all your replys!

Barb

Thanks Wendy - It might be a bit before I am ready to post images! I need to start with the basics - trying to relearn things. Many things are similar to Digital Image Suite - just different terminology.

My 14 DD is using PSe now too - I am sure she will be leaps and bounds ahead of me - those kids just figure things out so fast. It is fun having her work on it too - we both learn new things that way.

I really enjoy photography, although I am very much a novice. It is fun to see everyones pictures. It really opens up a whole new world of ideas!

I am using a Canon S3 now and love that camera.

If you haven't looked at Panos's website for actions, go there and take a look. Panos does some terrific stuff and many are free.

I like to try to do most effects by myself (I enjoy the journey more than the destination), but Panos takes the repetitive stuff and makes it easy -- like puzzles.

Thanks Jo - I was looking a little at the Panos site last night. I feel like I am totally lost right now, LOL!! There is a light at the end of the tunnel though - it does make a little sense. You all are great.
