    Cool New from Arizona!

    I have been collecting digital items for three years! Now I just need to get past my anxiety with PSE9 ! I just love all of the designers here and hope one day to make many things with their products!

    Hi there Sanjos and welcome to DD. The products here are wonderful as well as the creative team. Everyone is so helpful and friendly. Don't be afraid of PSE9...there are many tutorials here to help you overcome any anxiety about it. That's what I learned on and these tuts are great! Ask any questions you might have in the software support section and photoshop elements area. I use it all the time! Just have fun ;-)

    Welcome! Jump in and start playing with your PSE. We've all been at your stage and survived through the tears (well, I had tears!) of frustration by asking asking asking. There are lots of answers here.

    Welcome Sanjos. My advice is find a couple of tutorials and dive right in, playing is the only way to learn.

I've made some great friends here at DD! Hope to see you in the gallery soon!! Good luck, and don't be afraid to ask questions. We even learn different ways to do things when people ask!

    Wecome to DD! so glad you introduced yourself. :O) I think everyone is timid around software at first. Everything I know about PSE I learned in these tutorials in the shop. There are 56 of them and I learned something new and had an "aha moment" with each one of them. Have fun and don't be afraid to ask questions. :O)

    Hiya, welcome to DD, so glad you introduced yourself. Like others have said, just go ahead and play, we've all started knowing nothing, and we're all still learning. Feel free to ask questions, someone's bound to know the answer, and I'm looking forward to seeing your pages in the gallery!

    Hi Sanjos! Thank you for introducing yourself to us. Welcome to the wonderful world of digital scrapping here at Designer Digitals. Keep practicing and having fun with PSE.

    I, too, highly recommend the tutorials by Cassie Jones in our DD store because while learning the PSE software you'll also have a finished scrapbook page because each tutorial takes you step by step in creating a layout using the papers and embellishments that come with each tutorial.

    Here's a link to the first tutorial in Cassie's tutorial series:

    So happy to have you on board, Sanjos! All of us leaned on the knowledge of our DD friends while learning PS or PSE. I know that I probably wore everyone out when I was new to PSE. After years of playing with digital, there are questions that arise very often and there is always a fabulous answer here. Cassie Jones and Sara Horton both have hints and tutorials that are so much help!!

    Go to the purple tool bar at the top of the page and click on TIPS! There are all sorts of questions there in the database . . . and one particularly for PSE.

    Hi Sanjos! I'm so glad you introduced yourself, and I hope that we'll continue to see you around the forums and gallery. I was a 'collector' for a few years before I started posting, too. We're all eager to encourage and help you along the way!
