I am trying to build lots of cool stuff in Second Life and I found that my inability to create bitmapped graphics was getting in my way. I installed a copy of Photoshop CS a couple of months ago but couldn’t make heads or tails of the interface. Needing to solve this problem in a hurry, I signed up for the Introduction to Photoshop CS class at Bellevue Community College. This is an online class. The instructor posts new lessons on Wednesdays and Fridays, along with assignments and a quiz. Each assignment consists of a set of edits and a directive to upload the finished picture to a photo album site.
Last night I managed to complete the first two assignments and I am already much closer to being able to do what I want.
