    Red face Digital Newbie from Michigan!

    Hi Everyone! I am looking forward to starting a new phase in my scrapbooking career! After all these years, I am going digital. After much research, I am going with PhotoShop Elements (program I am familiar with). Plus I am going away scrapbooking with all the girls this weekend so I should have plenty of time to dive in and experiment.

    Looking forward to looking at everyone's layouts this week and chatting it up!

    Welcome Lisa....you will find this to be a most warm and welcoming community. The paper scrappers will be so jealous this weekend when you just walk in without hauling tons of supplies. Just your laptop with your digital supplies tucked away on the hard drive!!! Can't wait to see what you come up with over the weekend Have fun!

    Hi Lisa! I am so glad you introduced yourself! Welcome to DD and digital scrapping. You must share with us because half the fun of scrapping is the interaction with other like minded people like you'll find here at DD!

    Hiya Lisa, welcome to DD! Hope you have a really fun weekend scrapping. I used to paper scrap too, and when I first turned up at my scrapbooking crop with my laptop everyone was fascinated! It's just so neat and easy to transport, no running out of glue either!

    Feel free to ask any questions, we've all been digi newbies. Looking forward to seeing your pages in the gallery.

    Well don't I feel Welcome! Stopped last night and picked up PSE 12! I've used the full version Photoshop in the past so I am really looking forward to digging in with PSE. My friends are already jealous

    That's exciting Lisa! And I like your lenses comment "Gotta look at them and let ya know" - I haven't even listed mine as yet because I'm rather lens challenged (!) but I have had some really good help from some of the DD ladies here! Enjoy!

    Welcome to DD Lisa...I too just got PSE12 I love it. It really helped going to adobe.com and learning the program. Also great help on the tips section here at DD.

    Thanks kjvy-town! I installed it last night and starting playing around and was a bit overwhelmed I used PhotoShop years ago so it was starting to come back to me. In the PSE12 box was a slip to go to the adobe site for tutorials. Looks like that will be the first on my list this weekend!

    Good Morning Ladies! Well I got 3 layouts done and posted. This is GREAT. I am still feeling my way around PSE and no one here is using it. They are all using strictly digital scrapbooking programs. I am LOVING IT!

    I am not sure of the compression when I uploaded. I might have to redo them.

    Hi Lisa!! Loved seeing your layouts in the gallery today! A weekend away to scrap sounds like HEAVEN! I am jealous! Have a great time, and we're looking forward to seeing more of your pages. There is definitely a learning curve as you make the switch to digi and PSE, but it will be SO WORTH IT! You are going to be amazed by what you can do, how efficiently you can do it, how much less mess you'll create, and most of all...how much FUN you will have!
