Hi again. Lest you think that I have been vegging on the couch and eating bon-bons, here is some of my holiday reading material! What a wealth of knowledge is available from the local library. I have been getting really excited by all the mixed media books that are out there. I have been reading and taking notes, so I can include some of the ideas in my Mixed Media classes. I am particularly interested in the ones on physical photo manipulation. Lots to explore there!
And I have just purchased Photoshop CS4, and there is an enormous learning curve there. I am familiar with the levels, cropping and straightening functions from Photoshop 7, but this new version has SO much more. I was extremely lucky and got the 'educational price' for the software, as I teach in the Calgary Public School System. The program included l month free video training at the excellent Lynda.com school, so I have been spending an inordinate amount of time watching and trying the manipulations. I need a good reference book, so took all these out of the library to try to determine which would best suit my needs, but haven't gotten there yet.
I want to wish you and yours a very happy, healthy and creative New Year!
Love you guys!
