Up For The Challenge

Last spring my husband bought me Photoshop Elements, it was a Mother's Day gift.  I excitedly installed it started watching some of the tutorials, then life started happening, then summer came, the outdoors held much more interest, so I never got back into learning how to use it.

After the family photos I decided it was time to start watching the tutorials again and learn how to use the software.  I have watched some of the same tutorials over and over again, trying to figure out how to navigate through this software...wasn't having much success. Brain just wasn't retaining, decided I needed something I could look at while I had Photoshop open.

I ordered a manual... wouldn't you think a manual would mean brightly colored pictures with step by step instructions? Well my manual arrived today and it's more like a textbook. This is gonna take some time, my not quite young brain doesn't operate like it used to but I am up for the challenge.

Came across a good word that might be an encouragement to some of you out there, I know it was for me
Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.  Isaiah 46:4  Pretty good promise, don't you think?

I have wanted to try to master photoshop, but I'm so remedial in things like that. Bet you can do it.
I think you can... I think you can...

And I LOVE your Word from Isaiah!!

The best way for me to learn is to just click on things and try them out. It beats reading a text book or watching complicated tutorials. I think you'll get the hang of it though, and then you'll be the pro that can teach us. :-) Blessings!

You can do it, Maryann!! :) Me? I hate reading manuals. I'm always asking my Super Man how to do things. LOL.

What a wonderful promise from the LORD!

I love a good challenge! My middle son is a graphic artist though and he works this program in his sleep so I always let him do these things for me, haha. I LOVE that verse. I am going to share it today with my mom. Have a wonderful day! HUGS

Have fun, I have it installed on my computer and my son, Mr. Photoshop wiz zips around and I am still back at trying to get a picture to look right. There is such a difference between us.
I love that verse and when I am feeling like I do today, I remind the Lord about that verse.
Have fun!
