This thread is built just to discuss problems, and get answers. Things like -
Q. Why did my brush cursor just go away and all I get is a little crosshair. A. The caps lock key is on.

Learning Photohop is like that, there are lots of little things that can go strange and most of them are easy fixes if you know the secrets. I know lots of them and I am hoping there will be more that show up.

Cloacina asked about resolution
Q: So one question I had after watching the video was if I have a digital image that is too low of a resolution, can I print it out as a photo then scan it at a higher resolution back into a digital image as a method of getting it to a resolution that would allow me to size it larger?

A: I wish that would work. Think of a mosaic tile wall and a zoom lens, zooming in and out won't change the size of or number of the tiles. What is needed to make the the tiles smaller and have lots more of them.
A solution that works somewhat better is to go into the pic in Photoshop > Image Menu> Resize Image > There are 3 sections to the dialog box. Ignore the top, on the bottom make sure the boxs are checked for resample image and preserve hight and width. In the middle section on the right there are boxes for units (Inches, pixels ...) set that to percent and the amount to 110%. hit enter. This will do strange PS magic and increase the the number of pixels. Repeat. 110% is the magic number. It won't be perfect, but I have been able to create usuable graphics this way.
Let me know if you have any questions.

The practice files.

I discovered that I had a problem with uploading in dropbox from my Mac. I don't know why, but I switched to the PC and all is well.

Hi, all -- had a late start due to joining issues. :)
I have worked through some videos on Lynda.com for Photoshop. Starting to feel comfortable with very basics -- especially layers.

Welcome, glad to have you here. I will most likely be demonstrating layer toys next week in the live session. Hope to see you there.
