I had a great deal of trouble with lesson 1. I kept following the film and the downloaded instructions but for some reason using the brush I had saved each time over the last 2 days would never show anything on the new opened page to test it.
Tonight I tried changing brush locations to different drives to no avail. Then it dawned on me, I had made brushes, not a preset for a brush. Do I feel silly.
I followed lesson two and then did it over using the script I made. I feel like I am getting better but than again a little knowledge is a dangerous thing sometimes.
