I am not a newbie either, but I have to say a big THANKS. I had just begun trying my hand at Photo-Art when I found this forum. I have learned so much from the wonderful generous people willing to share their techniques.

Thanks to you all.

AND thanks to you Danny for doing a great job as moderator.


I'm honored to have this opportunity. Thanks for the kind words, Lynda. - DannyR

I'm not a newbie either, I just ran across this and had to express my gratitude to all who have shared their techniques. I could never begin to tell you how valuable this forum has been to me. I have learned so much. Danny, what can I say, you are so generous with your time and energy. Just want you to know that it is very much appreciated. Thank you so much.

Wanda: Thank you both for the kind words. There's great joy in all I do thanks to nice folks like you, who make this forum what it is. Danny

I am so new that if I were a tractor I would still be in the barn with the dealer stickers on! this forum is/will be very valuable and useful. I learn best by reading how to do something and then doing (or at least trying to do it).

thanks very much.

I'm a half newbie and have learned more here that at college classes. We were not taught the things I have learned so far. I had never used all the filters and actions until you all showed me how. Everyone is so wonderful for all the support and help they have given me. And also Danny thank you for all you do.

bubba & pjb:
You're both most welcome. Believe me, it's my pleasure.

While I am relatively new to this forum, I'm not really new to working with computer graphics. But I still find this to be a wonderful forum and a great place for learning new ways of doing things, and new ways of looking at things, even if most of you don't use the same program as I do.

Great place for a newbie to feel comfortable and ask questions. I am so new I need a "See Jane Run" book to get started. In the mean time has lots of my $ for every book I buy is way over my head. I have printed out so many tutorials my printer ran out of ink -
But, I am having fun and one day will be able to participate - thanks to eveyone who has helped me.

Valuable? It's fun... is there value to that? Useful? Will it make my teeth whiter?

It's fun! I like it. In fact, it's just what I been looking for.

There's good art here and fun stuff to do. You can't beat that! But valuable and useful, I dunno.

Thanks for your kind words. If you're not quite ready for the big time, by all means post images in the PA 101 forum. That's one of its purposes... to give rookies a safe place to play, especially for those just starting out on the learning curve.

Appreciate your comments. Good points regarding "useful" and "valuable." Perhaps not the best choice of words for the poll; the intent was to gauge value and usefulness of this subforum in particular (having a place to help find some golden nuggets quickly), but since you're havin' fun, that's what counts.

Welcome aboard. Hope you'll join in on some of the mini-challenges.
