She's had a slew of students since she started teaching classes and here is what some of her students have said:

This class was above and beyond my expectations. I had no idea how many features of Photoshop I was missing until I took this class. Andrea commented on homework and and answered questions quickly and encouragingly. I can't wait until the next class!

Andrea..I loved taking this class. It was really easy to understand and follow! Now I no longer look at my Photoshop with dread! I really learned how to manage it! It is fun! It is like magic! Thanks so much for your time! Connie

Andreas -classes were just what i needed to learn PSCS3- everything was well laid out and great course materials- i will be doing all her classes upto and including Illustrator-
good support when we needed it

AWESOME Class!!!!!! Covers a large variety of topics that is useful in digital scrapbooking and allows you to work at your own pace. The tutorials are wonderfully written and the instructor is clear, very helpful and answer questions quickly. I would highly recommend this class to everyone who is interested in digital scrapbooking and using photoshop cs2/cs3, I'm sure you will learn something you didn't know!

This was so awesome! The lessons are laid out so well and very easy to follow. I am definitely doing the Intermediate course next. I learned a lot of great things and had so much fun in the process!!!
Date Added: 06/25/2008 by Tamarynn Bennett

"I really enjoyed this class. I'd already taken Photoshop 1 & 2 at our local junior college and I still learned new things from your beginner class. I would highly recommend it!"

"I have taken both the Beginners and the Intermediate Classes, and I must say that it was money well spent. I learned more than I ever thought I would, and Andrea is a wonderful, patient teacher with a terrific teaching style. The classes are well thought out with lots of visuals. I am already signed up for the Advanced Classes. Thank you so much."

"Great classes! The instructions are clear and the lessons are well paced. I learned so much, and my designing ability has grown by leaps and bounds. Thanks Andrea!"

If you are interested in learning more about what the classes cover or would like to enroll, you can find out more information at http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com...ex&cPath=62_64.

I am currently taking the Intermediate level PS class with Andrea, which is almost over. Which is the next one after that? I've seen comments here of PS-Advanced 03 that requires Advanced 01. So which one is the one for me to register in?

Thanks, Cuca

Oh I would love to be able to take this class BUT I am so full of other things going on I just do not have the time. Is there a class usually in the summer?? say June-August time frame??
What is the format and are there assignments you turn in each week, meaning basically what is the workload in this class?? What differentiates the beginners class and the intermediate class??
Sorry for the 50 questions BUT as you can tell I am a curious person...lol

The classes are all taught every month. The classes are work at your own pace. There is not a specific time when the classes meet. The classes are taught in a private forum. The forum is always open after the start date of the class. New lessons are posted weekly in the forum in pdf format. You can go to the class forum and download lessons and then ask questions there also. There is a special gallery set up for everyone to display their homework and see what past students have done with particular assignments. I am always available to help you and answer your questions. Please let me know if I can answer any further questions you might have about the classes.

For the main differences, you can go to the store and read the descriptions. Here is the information for the beginner:

http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=62_64&products_id=898

Here is the information for the intermediate:
http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=62_64&products_id=905

You can ask more questions here too and I'll answer them for you.

Yes, it is too late for this month. We're half way done. However, a new round of classes will be starting in just about three weeks.

Plan on spending plenty of time with PSCS4, and even go back and do the lessons from earlier classes you've taken, if you have. That way you learn to do the easier things with the new software, before diving into the more advanced tips.

Can I ask you did you do a direct download from Adobe or did you do an install from a disk?
Last summer I did a direct download from Adobe of a cs4 suite and the dummies set me up with a trial version instead of the full version that I paid for. It took me 3 months of talking to people from India and then finally contacting the company president to get the mess fixed. I will never again do a direct download from Adobe.

Thanks for your response. I actually am downloading the trial version because I am purchasing the program but have not done so yet. My computer was telling me I did not have enough memory so we'll see what happens when I get the actual program. Thanks again!

webdesignmom
03-04-2010, 07:46 AM
Anna, hopefuly that is all you need is more memory. That would be the least of your worries.

Andrea
03-04-2010, 08:38 AM
If it's telling you that you need more memory for the trial version, it will be the same way with the full version. Look at the recommended specifications that Adobe sets out for CS4. You want to make sure you have all of those. You can see those here:

http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/photoshop/systemreqs/

CS4 is very resource intensive (Photoshop mainly). The other programs in the creative suite are not so taxing on your computer.
