  Hi Bill,

Instead the verbiage saying "Comment on this Photo" like it does on one of our Deluxe Web Sites, we use the words "Discuss" or "Discuss this Photo" here.

If you do not see these words under each photo, make sure you have the Ad Blocking portion of Norton Internet Securities turned off. This program tends to make things like this disappear from time to time.

  2783 .  Winning contest with previously submitted pic
I was wondering if anyone has won with a previously submitted picture that didn't win before? In other words, is it worth resubmitting pictures to the contest if they lost the first time they were submitted?

  Yes and Yes. If you write down the number of your entry it's easy to resubmit - also, keep shooting and submitting.

  2784 .  Photoshop Elements
I have recently purchased Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0. I was reading the course outline offered for Photoshop and noticed that 7.0 was needed. Do I have to have 7.0 or will 2.0 be suffice?

Let me know,
Thanks.

I use Photoshop Elements 2.0 for my photo editing. It is a user friendly limited edition of Photoshop. It is geared only for doing photo work, it does not have the capabilities of the full blown 7.0 version for graphic work. I don't know what course you are looking into taking and why. If they specificlly stated 7.0 then that I am sure that is what they mean but be prepared it is going to cost you! If you are only interested in using it for photo editing then Elements should be sufficient for your needs. Hope this helps.

  Thanks Dan for the tip. I guess I'm a bit overwhelmed with the program. There is just so much I can do. The problem is learning how to work the program. I was looking into a course to help me learn how to use the program the hands on way rather than having to read through all the technical instructions offered in the book. Really, it gives me a headache!! Thanks, for the input.

  Michelle,
I think, I could be wrong, but I think that Jim's course on betterphoto.com is for all Photoshop versions. Check out the info on his course. I was thinking of taking it next time around as I have taught myself most of the tools and would like to learn more. I too use elements 2.0.
Check out his course.
happy shooting!

  Michelle, you are not alone in the confusion with Photoshop Elements. I teach a introductory course in PSE at 5 schools in Connecticut and my classes are always full and some have waiting lists. Elements is much more user freindly than Photoshop 7.0. The problem is that they both are unlike other computer programs that most people have experience with. Plus until you actually see the program in action you don't know what to expect from it. Look to your local community college for a hands-on course. Pass on the lecture courses, unless you get hands on experience you won't gain much.

  I started with Elements One, and Elements Two. I now use Photoshop7. I would never have been able too understand 7 had I not started wuth Elements. I went to Adobe's web page and after registering the software they offered to send me a book at no cost. I received the book and it was helpful. The best way to learn Photoshop is by trial and error and just playing with it. I feel Elements does 85% of 7 and is user friendly. I would not get discouraged but continue with Elements. Many of the monthly magazines such as Shutterbug and Rangefinder offer articles with step by step instructions for new ideas. Stay with it. Now that Photoshop 8 CS is out many things will continue to change

2/17/2004 7:22:44 PM

  Michelle,

I have Photoshop 2.and find it easier to use than 7. I took a private class in Photoshop 7 and almost lost my mind. It was just too difficult for me. I purchased a book called "Photoshop Elements 2 solutions" by Mikkel Aaland. It is very user friendly. Hope this helps.

I don't want to clutter the air, but another good book for Elements is "Adobe Photoshop Elements -- a Visual Introduction to Digital Imaging".
It's a very user friendly book.
God Bless,

  PS elements 2.0 has most of the basic features one would want or need to do photo related work in PS. The thing about elements is that the functions are all wrapped in easier to use and simplified interfaces.

With PS(full version), you get the ability to adjust the curves more directly and to have access to each of the color channels as a layer you can manipulate. You also have access to scripted functions as well as CYMK manipulation of images. Granted, most of that isn't required for basic editing, but I find that I miss it alot.

I'm a current user of PS Elements 2.0 as I have yet to save cash for PS CS. :) I used to use PS 3.0/4.0/5.0/and 6.0 while in school and really liked it.

If you crave some of the more in-depth color channel editing and/or more detailed curves tools to adjust exposure and colors, you can try other lower cost software packages like PaintShopPro, Gimp, and Cinepaint. The last 2 being opensource and free for download and use.

  If you want some of the more advanced features 7.0 has but save several hundred $ try "Hidden Power of Photoshop Elemnts 2" by Richard Lynch.
The book comes with a CD and will allow you to seperate color and tone, use curves, and gives a lot of detailed information taking you very deep into image correction. Borders list price 40.00 but I got it for 20% off.

  Hi Michelle,

Roxanne is right. You may already know this, but there are two products - Photoshop full version which costs about $600, and Elements. If you are using the full version, you would want version 7 or CS. If you have Elements, version 2.0 is the most recent version.

For my Photoshop class (Photoshop for Photographers), you can use Elements 1.0 or 2.0, as well as Photoshop 6, 7, or CS. If you saw something about version 7 being required, you might have been looking at a different class... perhaps one of Lewis Kemper's classes.

3/7/2004 10:09:07 PM

  Burl, thanks for the mention. Many people will be surprised what Elements can do using the right techniques and tools. my book comes with the tools to help you make Elements match up very well to Photoshop, without compromise. Please have a look at the book (http://aps8.com/hppe4.html), and ask me if you have any questions. Check out my new Photoshop Elements Workflow course here at BetterPhoto.com. I look forward to helping people discover what it can do!

  Hi Sharon,
Yes, there is one more step. After you upload your photos you have to go into your Member Gallery Admin pages and choose that you want them to display.

I forgot there was a file size limit and tried uploading an 18MB image file (you can laugh at me). Can I reduce its size and resubmit or do I wait a month and let the smear that's displayed in the gallery alone?
thanks,

  2790 .  Lessons Involving Macro
Hi. I'm wondering if any of your courses involve macro photography? I saw the word mentioned a few times in a few of the courses, but don't know which would be better. I like nature and flower subjects the best. Thanks.

  Hi Daniel,

If you are really interested in flower photography, I would recommend Tony Sweet's Fine Art Flower Photography course. He has a lesson on macro specific to flower photography.

If you would like to be more general at first, instead of focusing just on flowers, try Kerry Drager's Beginning Photography II: Beyond Snapshots course. This is another great class that will give you a good strong introduction into the world of macro photography.

Have fun getting close to your subjects!
