During my lecture I explain why the quilt was about
5 years in the making and how "Technology Saved my UFO".

Hands-on, Laptop required.
Students can "try before they buy" with a 30 day trial version that is available on the Adobe.com website (click here to download), please download and install prior to class.
Note: Adobe first downloads the "Adobe Download Assistant" to your desktop or downloads folder. The download of the software should start automatically on a PC or for Mac, you will need to double click on the ".dmg" file to load the assistant.
If the download doesn't start automatically on a PC, then you have to start the download manager manually to actually download and install the software. The download is very large (over 1G, the size of a movie), and could take several hours to download depending on the speed of your internet connection, so be patient :-)
Note to Windows XP users: Newer versions of Photoshop Elements, starting with version 13, do not run on Windows XP. If you plan to bring a laptop still running this operating system and want to use a trial version of Photoshop Elements, please contact Jennifer prior to class. She has CD's with version 12 that can be loaded, so plan to arrive a little early.
