Absolutely, except for the Section 3 tutorials, since the Impressionist plug-in is not compatible with Mac computers.

re: Excellent photo-art tutorials

Sylvia, It states in the PDF that "If you wish to follow the tutorial with the sample pictures I used, you can find a copy of it in the Images folder of the Zip files."

Uh, where would that be since I got a PDF and no other files.
