I've had so much help in uploading for work in progress that I thought I'd air some more of my ignorance. I've got photoshop elements 6 and am enjoying the wide editing that is available. But 'layers' has me completely baffled. I've got the idiots guide, but Rolling Eyes
lol!

Here's a list on the the same site of tutorials on Photoshop Elements 6: http://graphicssoft.about.com/library/uc/ucjwoods3.htm

Once you see how useful layers are I think you'll be able to have some fun with it. Whenever I want to make changes to a photo, the first thing I do is make a duplicate layer to start work on. Every adjustment/change gets done on a separate layer so if something doesn't work out - just delete that layer. And no matter what, the original is still intact.
For reference photos for paintings I often have a greyscale layer over the original, then use the eye icon on the layer palette to turn that layer on or off as needed.

For anyone that wants a free photoediting progeam to download, I recommend GIMP. I use it at home and at the office. Vey similar in its features to Photoshop.

Help!! I'm not very savy on computers, but my husband got a new Kodak printer and installed it. It has great details and focus. When I tried to copy a photo off the computer, the colors were horrible...no way I could use it as an example of the pictures colors. So, I printed off a color wheel. The "True Red" came out looking like a Burnt Sienna with a bit of Paynes Grey added and thinned down to a glaze. All the colors were very grey and dull. Do you know how to adjust the colors? Would it be with the computer or the printer? Any ideas would be appreciated...I have no idea where to start. Thanks you guys!
