Create a Custom SLIDESHOW in PhotoShop Elements.

Saturday, January 21, 2012 (9:00 am - 12 noon)

Click HERE to register for this class

This class requires that students prepare the following items BEFORE class in order for the process to run smoothly for all attending.

You will need to organize the following:

1. Create a NEW folder on your laptop named "Slideshow". Find (30-40) Digital Photos that you want to use in your slideshow. Put those (30-40) photos into that new folder. Remember where you put and saved that folder on your laptop for class. You will not have time in class to search through all your photos to find the ones you want to use.

2. Bring a Music CD with a song you would like to use in your slideshow. You can also use a song from iTunes if you are familiar with this program. But if you use a song from iTunes it needs to be in MP3 format (not all songs purchased from iTunes are) PhotoShop Elements only supports music in the following formats: mp3, wav, wma, ac3

3. Please bring a set of headphones to plug into your computer. This will enable you to hear your music only and sync your photos to the music without being distracted by other students slideshow music choices.

Come ready to have so much FUN!

This is one of the best ways to show off your creative skills and photos to friends and family.

**For PCs only-- Mac versions of Photoshop do not have a Slideshow Feature!

Photoshop Elements Upgrade

Photoshop Elements 10 is here.
I am upgrading from PSE7.
Version 10 offers: adjustment mask layers, texts paths, cropping guides,
additional smart brushes & a few more guided edits.

I usually don't upgrade with EVERY new version of Elements,
but I feel PSE10 will be an added benefit from PSE7.
If you are using an older version of Photoshop Elements, take a look at PSE10.
Here is a link to HERE
