Oh Boy, Cathy! It'll be so fun to take the class together! Woo Hoo! I know what you mean about getting comfortable. I still go back to PSE more often than not. I struggle with some of the stuff in CS ... simple things like moving layers to the front or back without dragging. I used to be able to right click on the layer and a little menu would pop up and I could select to send it to the back or to the front. In CS ... you have to use the menu or memorize the shortcut keys. It'll take some getting used to ... I do use CS all the time now to run my photo actions. I've had a ball with that ... something I could never get to work in PSE. We'll muddle through together! Thanks for letting me know that I'm not behind on the class.
