Welcome

I have created Flash based tutorials for all the projects we will cover. This method of teaching/learning might be new to you but I think you may find it extremely powerful once you get into it. By putting all my lessons into this web site you have control of your learning. You can go as fast or slow as your learning style requires. You can stop the lesson at any time and practice the techniques or ask me for more clarification. Once you have watched a tutorial, make sure to take the time to practice what you just learned to ensure that you understand the concept.

Learning Resources

Since all my lessons are online and on the DVD you got from the workshop you can immediately start using these lessons with your students or share them with the faculty at our school/district. I encourage you to personally take on projects that allow you to practice these techniques. Continue to read some of the excellent books that cover this amazing software, explore the many online resources and learn from your students as they push the limits.

Sample Files

When you attend my workshop I give you a DVD that contains a bunch of sample files that you are welcome to use while you practice the techniques in the workshop. I encourage you to start with these files and then experiment with the same techniques on your own images. Please copy the entire "encore" folder to the desktop of your computer or the "Projects" folder if you are in my computer lab.
