Class on-Demand training with Sue Jenkins

Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 By Ko Maruyama
For those of us new to the Photoshop experience, Adobe's Photoshop Elements is the perfect way to start exploring the creative potential you have, and pushing the boundaries of your photographs into uncharted areas. However, you may need a guide to lead you through these waters. The latest class on demand DVD will help you figure out the application quickly and easily. The latest class on demand DVD will help you figure out the application quickly and easily.

Class on-Demand has several different training titles, but the latest, featuring Sue Jenkins, creative director of lucky chair studios, appeals to new users of Photoshop Elements.

There are plenty of tools that allow beginner users to modify their digital pictures and photographs. However, Adobe Photoshop Elements has a very deep toolset, and has several features which new users will be able to take full advantage of after going through this easy-to-use DVD instruction.

The DVD comes with a main menu which outlines all of the different chapters of instruction. Broken into four different parts, the train will take you through a basic introduction to the workspace, and on your way to special, advanced techniques such as photo compositing and built-in features like "Scene Cleaner."

The runtime on the DVD is approximately 4 hours. Although you'll probably go to the individual parts on different days rather than trying to digest the entire DVD in one sitting, it is easy to navigate back to previous lessons using the instructions buttons located within the class on demand frame.

You may also want to jump directly to some of the lessons which might be the primary reason you would be interested in this DVD training. Topics such as "sharing your work online," "repairing and retouching photos," and "creating a panorama" might be the topics you want to jump to first.  The DVD's pulldown navigation makes it easy to move between different lessons - a great way to go back for any refresher tips you might need.

It should be noted that Photoshop Elements 7 is an application created by Adobe. This should not be confused with the professional Photoshop CS 4, which does not use the same interface as the "Elements" software. While it does share some of the theories and functions of the tools, many people will simply take advantage of the Photoshop Elements free version online. This is not training for elements of Photoshop, but rather, education for Adobe's Photoshop Elements, which is available to everyone right now.

You can order a DVD for this training through the class on demand website for only $39.95 at This is a great beginner's companion for Adobe Photoshop elements 7, helping anyone get a quick start in the software. In no time at all, you'll learn how you can modify, edit, and embellish  photographs with remarkable results.
