Sooo..... I went to a talk the other night, with a woman who works in Japan doing pretty much what I want to do with my life. A lot of older women were there to hear her talk/ask questions/support/etc. We were talking over cookies and punch (so civilized) before the talk, and one of the women there was asking someone about using photoshop.

Me, being me, just happened to perk up at the mention. Of course, she saw this, and immediately assumed that a) I knew photoshop, and b) I would be willing to help... which... i do and i am, though my mother sent me a dirty look because I'm supposed to be concentrating my efforts on packing because I'm moving in two weeks. But it shouldn't take too long to help, right? And you never know what comes of building a good relationship...

Anyways. The reason I ask is that, while I'm quite experienced in using older versions of photoshop, I haven't ever used elements... I'm normally pretty good about figuring out how to make a program do what I want, but in the interests of saving time - is there anything special I need to know thats massively different or helpful between the two versions?

Pretty much what she wants to do, it looks like, is create a fancy border for pics by using shapes/layers and such. I'm familiar with layers, paths, etc... though looking at the tutorial of the thing she wants to do, it's a lil diff - using the twirl tool?

IDK, watching it kinda makes me wish my computer would possibly have the memory to run it.... i miss photoshop, especially when I want to do something interesting with an image. Anyways.....
