Ok. I need to learn photoshop. I know that there are TONS of videos out on youtube and that's great, but I seriously need the BASICS. Would it be worth just taking a local class on it? Or hiring someone locally?
When I look at youtube, they talk about things like "open new layer" (or something to that effect) I have no freaking clue what they are talking about. I seriously am dumb when it comes to PS.
I have no desire to highly process anything but some things would be nice to tweak instead of using my iphoto editing.
And another question - I just started a blog to put some of my favorite photos and realized I forgot to add a watermark to my photos. It just seems like so much work and I dont' mind doing it, but maybe I'm doing something wrong. So what I'd have to do is open my photo in PS and add the watermark to it and then save it under a different name to use on the blog, right? How in the world do you keep up with all of the different files? What's your secret? Am I making too big a deal of this? I just don't feel organized!
Do you keep your original photos all together and then just edit the good ones and save them as a different file elsewhere?
ack....i feel overwhelmed!
