  • Photo Shop Elements - Helpppppppp!

    I may be nuts but I downloaded the free trial to see if I could figure it out! I'm stuck at the most basic spot - how do I insert a picture? Help please! I feel like the biggest "numpty" - I went to the "help" section and typed in "insert picture" and still couldn't find a simple explanation. Crikey!!

      Julie, Go to "File", then "Open", then browse for the picture you want to use.

          Hey M&M you are getting daring arent ya! LOL I am not sure how that program works and I am sure someone will help ya out soon, but with that gimp you go to the top where it says file and hit open and then you get the images you pick out, not sure if its the same, but worth a try until someone helps! Cant wait to see what you come up with! maybe you will inspire me to get it! LOL

                    Its really not as hard as you think Julie..dont give up...www.digitalscrapbookplace.com has some good basic tutorials...it will be well worth your time because there are so many things you can do and make then add to your LO'S in max...I've tried a lot of them and they are basily the same..one thing I LOVE about PSE is the magic laso..its so much easier to cut out with that than the regular laso tool..and another good thing is that a lot of your friends use it and any will be happy to help you out...

                          Mint, it was very confusing to me too when I first tried it. I am still learning, but once you get used to it, it is fun trying out the different effects. You can also expand it's capablities by downloading free brushes and plug ins from the internet.

                              Thanks for the offer - I have a book and the free trial, but I think I have a mental block about this program! I find it confusing and then quit! There's so much to learn and it doesn't seem intuitive to me - however, I''m a numpty-head at technical stuff!
