Goodbye May….Hello June! {freebies, workshops & more}

Well, can you believe May is over and we are into June?!

I’m still keeping up with my 365 project!

I thought I’d share my May 2010 mosaic.

May 2010 365 Mosaic

My 365 project is really helping my photography skills, but now I’m REALLY excited about what I’m learning in Amanda’s PhotoShop Elements online workshops!!Up until a few days ago, I have been doing all of my editing with While Picnik is a GREAT place to edit (it’s FREE, but I pay for premium and it’s WELL worth it!) – but for portraits and other more important pictures……PhotoShop is the place to edit.

I’ve had PSE for several years, and had only used it a handful of times, because I didn’t know how to really use it……..

Amanda is fantastic at editing with PSE and I told you all about her workshops here.
I have since taken two of her workshops and I am SOOOOO excited about what I have learned! I have spent most of the last week working on newborn pictures I shot last week.(hopefully I can share them with you soon)

Amanda’s has a new site for everything you need to use PhotoShop Elements


I just can’t say enough about everything she is doing! Her workshops are fantastic, and when you sign up for one she also gives you video tutorials of most everything she goes over in the workshop, as well as handouts to print…….each workshop includes a little surprise freebie at the end as well!!

She has also set up a Facebook Fan page where you can ask/discuss questions, techniques, show off what you’ve learned and more!

As I’ve mentioned before, I LOVE to have the current months calendar right on my computer desktop.
