New tutorials planned??

I got great feedback from many of you about my video watermark tutorial Thank you all for your comments!  As I said in that video, there are many ways to create watermarks, and I am working on another tutorial on a watermark that looks embossed into the photo.  Watch for it this weekend!

Several of you who left comments also asked if I planned to make more tutorials about using Photoshop.  I hadn't really planned to at the time, but the more I thought about it, I thought that since we're all artists of one kind or another, and since so many of us scrapbook, that there might be some interest in creating special effects with your photos.  One of the possibilities is pictured here. (That's from my daughter's wedding in November.) How cool would that effect be to use in your scrapbook? There are some other more practical techniques that I could cover that would help you fix little "problems" in photos, and some that are just plain fun.

Don't worry - I won't stop posting Cricut projects and files, but I thought this might cover something of use to many of you, too.  So, take the poll , and let me know if you're interested.  It's right under my avatar on this page.

UPDATE:  The tutorial for this technique is now online! Click here to watch!

photoshop tutorials would be good, even though I don't have photoshop, I have a similar program which has some of the features PS has. I'm sure I'd learn quite a bit!

It would be wonderful to have tutorials on PS. I have PS7 and can edit my photos, but I know there is so much more you can do with special effects. Anything you could teach us would be great!

I did this once on a picture of my son sleeping with a santa hat on. The photo was b&w and I colored the santa hat red - so cute! It took me forever to figure it out so a tutorial would be great.

I think this is such a great idea. I am definitely interested. I got my watermark copyright made and really like how it turned out. I didn't have photoshop loaded on my computer so had to adapt it to Paint shop pro but it was basically the same. I will load my photoshop on my computer asap though, if you are going to do some tutorials.You are such a good teacher!! Would really appreciate it. Melissa
