I can answer pretty much any Photoshop questions. Although I do not have any experience in scripting within Photoshop. I have been using Photoshop since version 3 when it came on a bunch of little floppies. Wow, has it come a long way since then. But don't let it intimidate you. That's what we're here for. If you take the time to ask me a question, then I will take the time to give you the best answer. So ask away!!! Oh, one thing I should add. I have a Windows pc. I have never used a Mac. So if you ask me a question, I will assume you are using Windows XP, unless you specify otherwise. Those of you using Vista, I am familiar with Vista. I had it installed for about a month. It was too buggy, but I can still try to help you.
I have been using Photoshop for years. I give a Photoshop class here at the local community education building. There is a beginning, intermediate, and an advanced class. Most people take all three. Which must be a sign that they enjoy it. How could you not, Photoshop is so much fun. My greatest passion is Photoshop. Even greater than golf. Wow, I should Photoshop some golf photos...could it get any better??

No formal education in Photoshop. All my knowledge has been self taught. Trial and error. Plus I have about 30 different books that I have read. But I believe playing around is the best way to really learn Photoshop. I am a network admin that works midnights. Lets just say I have 8 hours a day to play around. :)
