How to Create Amazing Shadows Using Adobe Photoshop Elements

Hello peeps! Are you ready for another, fabulous edition of Q & A Wednesday — the new weekly VIDEO feature here at Simply Tiffany Studios that answers your digital scrapbooking questions? I hope you are because today’s topic is stellar! And since I featured a typography tip specific to Photoshop users last week, it’s time to show Photoshop Elements users some love.

But before we jump into the video, save the date of October 18, 2012 at 9 pm EDT. I’ll be at Renee TV for my monthly webinar called Building Better Pages for Digital Scrapbookers. This month’s topic is all about the  Q & A baby and everyone is invited to attend. Ask me your question LIVE and I’ll answer, or demonstrate the answer, using my library of digital software. Join, enjoy, and learn!
