PhotoShop? I'm Trying "Picture It"!

As many people know, Photoshop is an amazing software that is also complex and very hard to learn and understand. Plus it costs hundreds of dollars...Ouch >_<. I always wanted to learn Photoshop and also purchase it, but I simply can't afford it and I don't even know if I could learn it. I just needed to find another way to fufill my photo/graphic editing needs...

Well thank my lucky stars! Today as I was heading home from work I decided to stop by my local thift store to just browse around for fun, then I saw it... a brand new, unopen box of Microsoft 'Picture It!' 2001. Okay, yea it's new but it's 8 years old...still hey I thought I'll give it a try for only $8.00. ^_^ So I headed home so excited and downloaded it immediately to my desktop. To my amazement it was truly awesome! It has all the features I was looking for in Photoshop and tons of extra artwork! The picture above is my first project on "Picture It" and I love it. Not bad for a 8 year old software huh lol.

I love my new software and love the price I got it for, now here's what I want to do for my readers so they can feel my excitement...Most of you have etsy shops and listings. I would be happy to try and improve any picture you may have on your listings or even a banner maybe. I'll do my very best as I learn the software. If you would like to give me a shot on improving something in your shop, please let me know by clicking on the EMAIL button on the top left ^_^. I'm so excited in hearing from everyone and I will be posting some future projects later on.
