    I use psp and in my opinion, it is much easier to use than Photoshop CS. Photoshop elements is similar in its abilities to PSP, so if you already have PSP, I'd recommend sticking with that, certainly whilst you are starting out. If you want to try one of the other programmes, I think they have 30 day trials on their sites which would give you a good idea of how they work.

    To answer your question about your photos, I have never used any of that particular designer's pre-made quick pages, so am unsure what format they are in. It is usual for them to be png files, with the area for the photo 'cut-out' and left transparent. In this case, you would copy your photo onto the page, and then in your layers palette, you would drag your photo layer below the quick page layer, and resize and move it so that it will show through the space.

    Hope that helps - if not, let us known and we'll try something different :)

    If you are interested in learning any more about your programme, we have some classes on offer in the store here

    Hi Curler Welcome to GDS! As someone who knew absolutely nothing about digital scrapbooking when I came to GDS 2 months ago, I highly recommend the classes offered here ... it is the best investment you can make! Hope to see you around the site.
