    Finally joining in!

    So about 3 years after I first thought of joining the course, I've now gone for it. At that time I wasn't working, so couldn't justify spending the money. Just on Friday there I found out I'm getting a permanent contract at my work, so I'm treating myself.

    Hoping to spend the summer extending my photoshop knowledge, inspired by you guys who've already gone through the tutorials!

    So happy for you Chrissy! I've just signed up for a photography course, costing an arm and a leg, which I've dallied over for as long as I can remember. Now, I figure I'm worth it!

    Thanks, I've just watched a couple of the introductory videos and learned some tips already! How did I not know that you could drag in guidelines from the ruler in Elements? I assumed it was a CC only thing!

    Hope you get time to work on your photography course, Liz!

    It is so worth it! I figure if I couldn't invest a little moolah in to myself, then, just what does my art mean to me? I joined PA, then, Awake, then Kaizen. I have never regretted any of it! It is still giving back!
    The community of people on the FB groups is marvelous! I'm sure you will love all of it!
    Welcome, Chrissy!
