    Default Hi!

    I only started using Photoshop last year so I could make banners, promo buttons, and covers for the free reads I offer on my website. I'm not an expert and I find myself learning new things all the time, but most of it is self-taught. Or learned from YouTube vids. lol.

    Hi Hollie! Wow, that's really cool. So far, I've only made stuff for myself. I don't think I'm good enough to make anything for anyone else yet.

    she is really amazing she has taught herself to do many different things including playing the flute,

    she will make anything for anyone she just enjoys doing it, i have to told her she should charge people just because of th enumber of hours she spends on things. oh and did i mention she is only 15?

    My son Jamin started drawing at age five, and has progessed from crayon to CS3 - the new Photoshop - and does brilliant work.

    When our kids create, I think we feel some of the pride because they are of our blood, and their creativity is at least partly a result of our encouragement.

    Can you post a few pictures?

    Someone has been playing with pictures! I love doing this kind of stuff. I'm using pictures to layout my next book, and it's working really well. What kind of program does she use?

    she has photoshop 4 she's still getting used to it and keeps finding new stuff it can do. of course if she would read the insructions then she would work it out sooner but you know what kids are like they seem to think insructions are a sign of weakness
