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 "elements" folder to the desktop of your computer or the "Projects" folder if you are in my computer lab.
