Just wondering where you would consider yourself in the area of skill level? Don't be bashful -- take the poll!

I guess I'd have to say I'm "intermediate". My friends and family who have seen my work tell me I'm not a beginner, but I know that I still have way too much to learn to even think that I'm near advanced. Thus, I'll stick myself in the middle.

I'm going to go with intermediate as well. I know I've seen a lot better work than mine and that's what keeps me learning.

I'm going to go with "intermediate advanced".

What do you all think defines "advanced"?
I guess for me, it's someone who can tackle any problem, and not leave any visible signs of work done.

I'm also curious, who, and where are the advanced artists?

I have to class myself in the beginner-intermediate class as I daily discover that the more I learn, the more there is to find out. Tom

K Eismann says to the adept Photoshop is a transparant layer between user and image. That puts me in the mist and fog just south of Draculas castle. I'll go for intermediate because there's still major chunks of the program still unexplored.

Depends on what you're talking about ... my skill level for the intricate and exhilarating game of tiddlywinks is definitely close to the advanced category, while those for mud-wrestling are pretty much beginner. Although I would prefer it to be the other way round.

Lorraine, if you're not in the position to purchase Photoshop right now, you can get an almost exact replica of the program for $29.00. It's put out by a company that makes software that is very much like popular software packages. It's legit.
I've posted the link below. If you go to the site, scroll down to where the individual programs are (as opposed to downloading the entire package). You are looking to download this file: abpaint.exe http://www.ability.com/download/ab2000.php
