148/365: Shopping


Today we did a little bit of clothes shopping to get ready for California weather. I'm still working on getting my pre-baby body back (I can't remember how long it took the first time???) and needed a couple pieces to get me through. In the evening we had dinner at Chipotle (yum) and shopped for refrigerators. We were surprised to know that most homes sales in California don't include the fridge. What happens when a Californian moves to Washington where most homes do include the fridge? :) Sears didn't have the model we wanted on the floor... so it's off to Best Buy tomorrow!
Lastly, I'm now a Mac! We had my MacBook Pro shipped to my parents and yesterday I was finally able to get it out of the box. I downloaded the trial version of CS5 and am trying to figure out my way around it. It's definitely a bit different than Elements! I think I'm going to take the Jessica Sprague "Good to Great Workflow" class to get me started, but any other suggestions on how to learn PS would be great.

Happy traveling and welcome to CA! That Jennifer Sprague class looks good - I'm going to have to look into it for myself as I just upgraded from Elements too and am lost.

Trial & error and searching Google for specific tutorials, that's how I do it. There's a series of video tutes from this guy named Donnie called "You Suck at Photoshop." Google it. Hilarious and helpful.

There are LOTS of free online tutes available. I looked into the Jessica Sprague classes a while ago, but the cost held me back. With some searching, I've found everything I need for free.

If you have specific questions, I might be able to give you better direction...I've never used Elements so I don't know how it is different. (Though I hear it doesn't have Curves. How on Earth can you fix photos without Curves??)
