    First of all, come and say HI once you register for this bootcamp.

    We want to know who else will be there, on our side to cheer everyone up.

    Everyone started as a beginner, so don’t ever compare yourself to others. You will learn one tool at the time, one concept at the time and you will create one project at the time. Everyone will have different photos and possibly different supplies so every project will be different.

    Once the Bootcamp is started, on September 13th, 2021, you can post your projects in here.

    Remember to resize your images to about 600 pixels AND saving in jpg format, before uploading it so it won’t slow down the site when we have lots of your masterpieces. Try to follow the tutorials at least enough that we can recognize what lesson you completed.

    Now, let’s get ready !

    If you missed the registration link or if you found this thread before I announce it (some people are very observant), HERE it is. Share it around if you want.

    Although this Bootcamp is mostly meant to help beginners, we won’t exclude anyone for “excess experience”. Some participants are back for a second round. You are always welcome. Remember that it will be the exact same tutorials so don’t be surprised. I am sure you will now do something slightly different than the previous time.

    Since anyone can follow the whole Bootcamp using the trial version of PaintShop Pro, this is a perfect opportunity for anyone to give it a try and see how they like the program, so share with your friends who MIGHT consider using PaintShop Pro.

    The 7 tutorials will be spaced out over almost 2 weeks. This should make it easier for participants to follow without feeling stressed (it should never be stressful!).

    I have registered. I’ve done this once before but have been seeing how others have taken it several times and are still learning…so, I’m going to give it a try again. Thank you, Carole.

    I am registered too.  This will be my 3rd time.  I am still a  rank beginner and this bootcamp is great to help me become more comfortable with PSP.  I am looking forward to it.

    I’m here, too, for the 6th time! 😉 I have new photos to showcase and these layouts always give me a good start. Here’s Logan, my newest great-grand, now 7 months, wearing his peas. 🙂

    Hi, This is my first time at scrapbooking although I’v been using PSP for a good few years. Feel like I’v stepped into the deep end by going for the boot camp but I’ll give it a go

    Hi, everyone.  I’m going for my 3rd time.  Don’t have a “theme” set of pictures, but I will probably use great grands as subject matter (especially the young ones) or maybe something from nature such as landscapes, flowers, etc.  This is an enjoyable time spent with our teacher, Carole.

    Meant to say that I have changed my background color to white.  Found that I had changed it in a previous version to white and while using it recently, I find that I like it, so I changed my background to white in my current version: PSP 2021 Ultimate.  (still not sure of which pictures I will use).

    Hi, I’m using PSP 2021 ultimate set to complete mode; the colour of the work space is dark gray with medium gray background. I keep the materials, layers navigation and learning centre open at all times plus organiser and tool options. The tool bars that are open are the standard, scrips, status and tools. I have a collection of photos from 2000 to present so I have a lot to choose from. Photo is of spiders web.

    Hi everyone! I think this is my second bootcamp and about my zillionth year using PSP badly. I’m always keen to practise. Eventually it will all sink in. I haven’t picked any photos yet, but may use some vintage ones this time around.

    I am using PSP 2021. My preferences for now are dark gray background in the Complete workspace, the Tools toolbar docked on the left, the Standard and Tool Options toolbars at the top, with the Materials and Layers palettes open on the right.

    Hello Everyone, I am here.  I have done I think 2 Boot camps in the past.   I guess the projects have not started yet?  I have not received one in email as yet.

    Bonnie, yes, some participants have become regulars. Maybe you will too?

    Susan, as a returning participant, that will be one goal: to get more comfortable with PSP, tools and commands.

    Ann, kids are always welcome in our pages!

    Helen, you will make it… eventually.

    Cindy, welcome back.

    Colin, welcome to the Campus. The Bootcamp is meant for starters, so don’t hesitate to ask if you are ever stuck.

    Mary, I am glad you like to spend time with me! You will see me every night!

    Rob, welcome to the Bootcamp. That is a cutie. I hope we see more of him!

    PikeVaan, welcome too. It is ok to use PSP2022. Although there are a few minor differences with the workspace (mostly the home page) from the version used for the videos, you should have no problem following.

    Connie, welcome back.

    Wanda, the first email was sent this morning, although it is not a project, but the first lesson, about installing and configuring PSP. Did you get that one?

    No Carole I probably signed up after the email was sent.  I would like to review it if you have time to send it.

    I have just registered, a tad late I’m afraid.  I’ve uploaded  a screenshot of my preferred PSP layout.  I will also be showcasing one of this year’s juvenile ruby-throated hummingbirds. ( shown in screen shot) I had 3 youngsters, with several  adult males and females, they left for warmer climes, as they do every year on the  29th August.  They were also 2 days later arriving this year. 3rd August.

    hello,

    I like a dark workspace and background.  I closed the learning centre and organizer and kept the rest of the toolbars/palettes.  I’m hoping to use photo’s that have been my Christmas card photos from the past years.

    Here’s my table and sandwich layers exercise.

    As I’ve done several of these each one gets more elaborate!

    I still don’t like my pickles ON my sandwich. 😉

    Day 1.  I use the light gray workspace.  My desktop is setup like Carole’s.  I will probably be featuring my Greats in most projects.  The first photo is My youngest Great; Gracie.  Well I really goofed on my project.  This is my great grand Lilly not Gracie.  Her older sister is Gracie.

    Sue, you won’t get another email until tomorrow. We will get an email every other day, for a fortnight. Ann is jumping the gun, by posting her sandwich.

    Actually, the lessons for Days 1 to 3 are Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, when you will get the first project. After that, the projects will be every other day but the emails are still daily.

    For those who are starting late, your emails are just a bit delayed and you might not get them at the same time of day as others, but they will catch up.

    Hello, I did a bit more in the lesson. I used the drop shadow, beveled, and used the magic wand a few times. Hope this is alright. Got carried away with my sandswich, by trying to add toast did a few more layers on the dishes also. It almost looks like homemade bread to me.

    Hi all, day 2 and I’m keeping up; it’s a very nice sandwich but it’s missing the mustard and the pickles are a bit on the soft side. I’ve taken the tab documents off and it’s strange working without tabs.

    This is my third Bootcamp and I got the e-mail early this morning so I have gone back and played with it several times. I like my really full sandwich on toast and it had so much stuff in it I had to put toothpicks in it to keep it together. The tablecloth and the flower are from creative fabrica. I wanted something cold so I have a glass of milk instead of a cup of something. My first bootcamp sandwich and table were pretty much just like the tutorial suggested.
