nice and simple but includes how to post to web.
I only have Photoshop Elements, so was unable to do the project. But the class is well done and looks like a lot of fun. I like how she uses her project on her own website. Immediately useful! I did have a bit of trouble seeing the menus and which buttons she was pushing. Would suggest to Marlena that she find a way to bring the screen closer, or zoom in when clicking. especially needed for beginners like myself.
