Do you have a great idea but don’t really know the tools used to create it. This website will definitely help (http://www.howtogeek.com/98103/30-of-the-best-photoshop-tips-and-tricks/)
I often find in class I have these ideas in my mind that I am unsure how to go about. Last week I asked Kyle to show me how to have your words go around the edge of an image. I wanted to words to wrap around a light bulb instead of just continuing in a straight line. Of course he successfully showed me how to do this and has many neat tips and tricks up his sleeve but unfortunately our classmate, Kyle, will not always be sitting behind you when your great idea comes to mind.
