    Removing graphics and other effects from the image of a map.

    Sam, I think I must be misunderstanding. I am saving one as a Photoshop file and the other as a PNG file. However when I opened the PNG file the checkerboard background is still present. My understanding of what you said above was to save one as a PNG file format and one as a different format. I...

    Removing graphics and other effects from the image of a map.

    Sam, Thanks for the tip. I thought it was probably a file type issue, but I had no idea where to start. If the photo was a JPEG before I began editing will I be out of luck? Thanks again

I am really a novice when it comes to working with graphics, so now I have another question. I...

    Good website with beginner Photoshop projects for a Photoshop class?

    That is a good question. Perhaps saying that I have no artistic ability whatsoever was a bit of a stretch. I am in marketing and in marketing there are applications for Photoshop that don't necessarily demand you to be an artistic guru. I suppose I do have some artistic ability. But there are...

    Good website with beginner Photoshop projects for a Photoshop class?

    Against my better judgment, I signed myself up for a beginner's Photoshop course. We don't really have homework but we do have to get in front of the class and show a before and after project. We basically start with one picture and then show the aftereffects with the modifications we've made to...

    If I get further into Photoshop, how much finesse with the mouse would be involved?

    Re: If I get further into Photoshop, how much finesse with the mouse would be involve I guess it's like anything else. Practice makes perfect. It's nice to know that there is something else out there if I get serious about Photoshop. I am a long way away from that at the moment.

    Re: If I get further into Photoshop, how much finesse with the mouse would be involve Stupidly, I would not have thought about that. If I ever get there I will keep it in mind. That being said, can I proceed to a decent level without it?

    If I get further into Photoshop, how much finesse with the mouse would be involved?

    So I'm a bit of a novice with Photoshop actually, I am a complete novice. I want to jump further in. I really don't have the motor skills to possess a a lot of finesse with the mouse. I am curious if you were to become proficient with Photoshop is it necessary to have a lot of finesse with...

    How to delete a section of an image using the marquee tool?

    I do like it. Unfortunately I am just starting with Photoshop and do not have your skill level. I volunteered to make a website for a local pediatric therapy company. So now I'm learning Dreamweaver and Photoshop with a trial by fire method. I'm not sure the small image will fit right into the...
