Tips and Tricks

It’s been months since I read this thread and I apologize that I didn’t respond to the kind offers of assistance!

I did purchase Photshop Elements and a couple of books that have been helpful and basically I’ve been having fun learning.  I did include some of my restored photos at the end of one of my books and I was pleasantly surprised at how well they turned out.  It definitely meets my needs and I’m pleased with the outcome.

Thanks for all the helpful advise.

Tips and Tricks

I guess it depends on what your goal is.  There is no way I could have had all of my photos restored by a professional due to cost.  So I purchased PhotoShop Elements 5.0 and have been resourcing myself through books, online and some friends who are professionals.   I’ve enjoyed the challenge of learning.  Professionals have to learn some way too.  My restored photos are more than likely not up to professional standards but they do get them out of an ancient photo book and into a useable form for the whole family to enjoy. 

Isn’t that what this whole Blurp thing is about?

Making pages in PS
BookSmart

I read the blog with instructions about importing pages from PS.  My question is, can you do that with PS Elements 5.0 also?

Yes, that was helpful, thanks!

 I don’t mind spending time to learn and practice.  I was wondering if the Photoshop Elements 5.0 would have the tools I needed or if I would need the CS3. The photos do need some major work.

Tips and Tricks

I am wanting to start a large project of compiling photos and memories for my extended family in a book. 

I have all  the old photos to scan and use but many will need corrected.  I’m reading that many do that in Photoshop and my question is, which version of that do I need and is it something I can learn to do?
