This week's Get Help thread can be found on Google+.
Each week, I will start a new post for you to post your graphics software questions and problems, alternating between Facebook and Google+. If I don't already have an article addressing your issue, we'll take it under consideration for a future article or tutorial.
Week of 4/27/2014: no questions
Summary of questions and answers from the week of 4/20/2014:
Vanessa asked, "What is the easiest software for making blog and website headers?"
My answer: Vanessa, to me "easiest" translates to the one I can most easily get help for when I need it, and that would be Photoshop Elements. You can read about the latest version here. Liz has created a tutorial on how to Create Beautiful Custom Blog Headers with Photoshop Elements.
Dawn asked, "Any suggestions for a simple graphics program that will run on Windows 8? Something comparable to Microsoft Image Composer that ran on XP."
Ann wrote, "Thank goodness for your expert Photoshop advice, Sue. I always seem to get stuck on cut out of images and placing them in a more desirable background."
My answer: Did you see our recent articles on refine edge? Getting a good selection is half the battle.
Rhonda wrote, "Hi Sue! I love your blog and appreciate all the helpful tips. I'm still a beginner, so it all helps! I seem to be missing some tools at the top of Elements 9, which I really think were there before in the toolbar. I don't know if I accidentally deleted them and have no idea how I would even go about doing that. But is there a way to get them back?"
My answer: This article explains how to reset all your tools and panels back to factory defaults.
Krishnannunny asked, "Could you help me how I can enlarge a very small .jpg file with Photoshop with out losing its clarity."
