Ann A, you will have other opportunities to use other photos! Do you happen to have PSP2021? It has great photo editing tools for underwater photos. I think your photo would be a great one to test those tools!
Ann S, out of curiosity, did you choose to use a white shadow for a specific reason? If you were to use a black shadow, it might be more consistent with the shadows on the other elements like the hearts and such. Yeah, you will find me quite annoying about shadows! 😉
Lynn, welcome to the Bootcamp. What was the last version you had before 2021? Is it a big change since your previous version?
Lavada, that is quite an interesting photo. Those wooden elements are particularly appropriate for that photo! when you posted your layout, did you resize it to 600 pixels? it looks quite large. Also, the second image does not seem to display properly.
Cindy, you are really impressing me. I do remember your first layout, HERE. Can you see the difference?
Nathalie, glad to see your first project and happy that the instructions were clear enough for you to follow. You will definitely enjoy that new hobby! 🙂
Jan, what a nice dish set! even without being a scrapbooker, you will see how those projects will still give you some practice with the PSP tools.
Euka, that striped paper is so obviously matching, I suspected it was made from the photo itself. That is a great way to have coordinating elements on a project!
Peter, it is interesting how you created your project in a rectangular format. Do you plan to print them? Just curious as a lot of people planning to print can only use that format since their printer is not wide enough for a 12×12 page.
Rick, in many projects, I would point out that the shadows are giving a floating effect to the elements, however, in your case, the composition is just what is needed for such a shadow since the various elements have that look of a “shadow box” where things ARE away from each other and not glued on the surface. Is it possible that it is missing a shadow on the image itself?September 17, 2020 at 11:48 pm #47335
I couldn’t figure out how to get a shadow on the image. I’ll go back and tinker with it. It was a mask so maybe I need to convert it to a raster layer first then apply the shadow.
Thanks.September 18, 2020 at 3:56 am #47339
Signs of Spring-Lesson3
Here in Australia, Spring is in the air – flowers are starting to bloom and birds are looking to breeding.
This is my photo of Australian Rainbow Lorikeets last Spring when they had babies to feed and look after. We get lots of these colourful birds and I took this on my balcony of the resident pair who usually have two babies.

Adventure Project Completed. I found it very interesting how the photo seemed to take control of the page in determining the colours and details. This started out with very a different colour pallet!September 18, 2020 at 12:31 pm #47343September 18, 2020 at 3:55 pm #47344cindy harrisParticipant
Our Teacher Cassel,
IS THE BEST MOST AWESOME, WHERE DOES SHE HAVE TIME MOST COOLEST TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD
THANK YOU I BOUGHT THE 2021 AND LOVE ALL THE SCRIPTS I HAVE GOT TO RUN, THE WELL SOME LIKE CLIPTOIT CANT WAIT TO LEARN. I HAVE A LOT OF PROBLEMS BUT NOT AS MANY AS WHEN I STARTED. YOU WOULDNT BEIVE HOW LOST IN A FOR i WAS NOW I CAN SEE, I AM SO MUCH BETTER BECAUSE OF YOU AND ITS HELPED ME WHEN ALL THIS VIRUS MADNESS STARTED. I WAS ALONE FOR OVER A MONTH AND WITHOUT YOU I KNOW I WOULD OF LOST IT. THANK YOU FOR BEING ALL THAT TO ALL OF US.
ONE THING THAT FIRST ASSIGMENT I WAS SOAK AND WET WITH SWEAT AND HAD SO MANY FITS BUT NOW I AM REALLY GETTING THE HANG OF IT AND GOT THE RIBBON EXCEPT FOR PUTTING WORDS ON IT DONE.September 18, 2020 at 4:00 pm #47346Ann SeeberParticipant
Here’s my Adventure project with a new photo of baby Sonya who is now almost 3 months old. She got a little buried in my daughter’s sweater, as you can see.. all snuggled up!
Carole: Here’s another version based on your comment! Good idea! I also faded the pink flower using the brightness/contrast based on a mention of it by Sue Thomas in the Facebook group. Much better than reducing the opacity.September 18, 2020 at 4:14 pm #47348September 18, 2020 at 7:50 pm #47370Cathie Brown-BlairParticipant
Hi all, getting a late start here but I plan to catch up this weekend. I started with version 7.04 and it’s been some time since I have played in PSP extensively so learning 2020 may prove to be interesting. I have upgraded several times to newer versions since 7 but always revert back to using 7 because I know it well and am usually in a hurry to get something done but I am determined to learn the newer version. I did go in and do some tweaking to my settings but boy have things changed. I am using the light gray scheme, classic material properties, document palette.
this is the first photo I picked (resized for posting) from our girls weekend getaway this year. Now backed to lessons.September 18, 2020 at 11:07 pm #47372
Rick, adding shadows to a group that has a mask is a little challenging as you have to use a different approach than the regular shadows. If it is a mask group, you would need to merge the group first, and then, you could add the shadows. Is that beach sign somewhere you have visited or somewhere close to where you live?
Jan, such a colorful page for colorful birds! Great showcase.
Betty, you have a lovely page and you did great. However, did you forget the shadow on the photo itself? It seems to be the only one missing.
Nathalie, may I ask how you are inserting your image in the posts? They are small (that is ok) but don’t enlarge when we click on them to see the details. With that wall of signs, have you ever considered using the Perspective Correction tool? Check this article if you want to square it.
Lavada, that is a lovely page with that fun photo. Will you have enough photos of that same event for all the pages? It would be fun!
Ann S, that snuggling Sonya is so cute playing peek-a-boo!
Cathie, that is a lovely photo. That will surely make a beautiful page. As for your setting, I see that you are using a workspace that resembles the older versions you have. I do the same as I also got used to those old versions (I still use 9 extensively for scripting).September 18, 2020 at 11:26 pm #47373
that was from a place we stayed at in Negril, Jamaica. Unfortunately nowhere near me.September 19, 2020 at 5:34 am #47380CristinaParticipant
I am enjoying to see every single work posted here… Amazing and inspiring pages. Great work!September 19, 2020 at 4:07 pm #47399Natalie SpoonerParticipant
Cassel: Thank you for your feed back. I was wondering why my photos did not have a name associated with them and would not open larger when clicked like the other great work being shared. Turns out I was embedding them in the post. I now see the “Upload Images” (I thought that was for screen shots only). I have not used the perspective tool before so thank you for that lesson. I did use it to correct the perspective of the track decal photo. I did use the new correction and also skewed it on the lay out as for me it gave the impression of it coming at you with speed but a much better photo to work with. An improvement on the original for sure. Good reason to save your work as a PSP file!September 19, 2020 at 4:32 pm #47403ANN ADAMSParticipant
Had a good time casually doing this. I was trying to get the feeling of the kids playing in the bubbles. Used a scrap kit call AC SoPerky Pix with her font.September 19, 2020 at 7:01 pm #47408Terry SchwarzParticipant

Cindy, those buttons are awesome! They obviously match perfectly! I am glad you got that one script working. You seemed to have added some paint floating on top of the other pieces of paper. Try rearranging it so it is under the papers. It might look more logical (and you can remove the shadow to it as paint and ink have no thickness). Just a little suggestion.
Nathalie, glad I made you discover a new tool. Now you have options! Those uneven letters in the title of your second project are a great match for the theme!
Terry, welcome to the Campus and the Bootcamp. You didn’t like the pickles in your sandwich? On your project 1, be a little careful with the shadows: large shadows will give the impression that the element or the photo is floating above the paper and would fall if you lift the project! On your project 2, did you use a piece of the image to make the greenish paper? It looks like a perfect match!September 20, 2020 at 2:40 am #47422EukaParticipant
I visited the The Wintergarden in Auckland – it is a heritage protected site developed after World War 1 and houses an amazing display of flowers and plants.
All the papers and photos are mine. I like using photos as papers and elements. Not sure on the colour scheme tho!
And yes Ann, I am downunder in Australia where spring has arrived.September 20, 2020 at 2:46 am #47424
This is my Lesson 5 project. The coming out of a hard cold winter to more summer season and the promise of better things to come.
My photo of a beach where I live, not quite full summer season yet when I took the photo. I used a beach wave background paper. The extras were from a kit called Clip Art for Summer. I modified the clipart saying to read Time instead of view.September 20, 2020 at 2:51 am #47425
Waves from Australia to Euka Euka. I am so glad it is finally Spring also, Cheers, JanSeptember 20, 2020 at 3:12 pm #47442Terry SchwarzParticipant
Thanks for the constructive criticism. To be honest I really struggled with project 1 and was going to scrap it (no pun intended) and start over but, decided to post so I could see if I improved. Project 2 took me a fraction of the time that I spent on project 1 and I feel it came out better and more uniform.
The leaves are a seamless pattern I created after modifying another one of your scripts. It just happened to fit nicely with that image.September 20, 2020 at 8:52 pm #47470
Here’s project #3. Have a good day. I learned how to make transparent images so that helped a bit.September 20, 2020 at 9:18 pm #47471
Euka, I like that scalloped edge around the pink paper.
Jan, it is a great idea to use a large photo as a background paper. It certainly gives your project a real summer feel!
Terry, creating your own papers and patterns is the beauty of learning PSP to create projects: you never have to rely on other supplies since you can create your own!

I loved your projects Rick. Unfortunately for me I’ve had computer problems and I’m hoping to start next week. I have to wipe my entire system clean and reinstall all my software. Funny I have a cousin in Kansas with the same name.

“Rick, as I read the quote, I immediately recognized Gretsky’s words, even before reading the signature.”
Excellent Cassel! He truly was the Great One when it came to hockey!
“I loved your projects Rick. Unfortunately for me I’ve had computer problems and I’m hoping to start next week. I have to wipe my entire system clean and reinstall all my software. Funny I have a cousin in Kansas with the same name.”
Hi Rita. Thanks for the kind words. I hope you get your computer fixed so you can join the fun. It’s been a great experience and I’m glad I took part in it. Your cousin in Kansas has a great name! 🙂September 20, 2020 at 10:27 pm #47477

Hi My Teacher, Hi All,
I dont know really what Ild do without video calls with Grands, and my dog. He was my last rescue all his homes I tried to get him fell thru. No one wanted him even though he was free to them, I spent a lot of money getting him ready for his forever home. Which of course turned out to me mine, lol. The things we dont know, but this Pandemic would of been so lonely if not for Bruce lee and Video calls my kids.
I made a tub of lil bruce he’s a star, lol I made the buttons with our Teachers script for sale in her store, I also bought many more the bow is a script there too. I couldn’t do the scallops liked Euka Eukas to, but couldn’t do it so added a border and a shadow there. Couldn’t d/l the kit just find the preview if that meant click it I did and went to Pixel it would not let me d/l without a current membership. I did not sweat, fuss, or otherwise I could follow all instruction except the click on preview to get minikit.
Thank you I learned today thank you Cassel. I love the bow and buttons script. This is my 3rd entry oh man I want the diamond or the 25 in store to buy more scripts lol Plan on completing all lessons.
