Erica, I've watched this video over and over again to complete some projects. Thank you so much for making sense of the photoshop mumbo-jumbo!

What a fabulous tutorial!  I saw this at lear a year ago and it was mumbo jumbo to me then, but NOW--it all makes sense!  And I just want to give you a huge thank you hug!  Thanks so much Erica, wonderful wonderful!

Just discovered this tutorial, will be practicing this weekend.  My biggest crutch not knowing Photoshop.  Thanks Erica!

I am brand new to the forum and I am so excited about all the information available.  These tutorials on digital are awesome!  I have to learn photoshop now!

Wow! Thanks for a lot for this. The process you shared is definitely a lot less tedious than what I currently do. I think following yours can save me a lot of time. I wish I'd seen this sooner!  :)

That is good to hear Rorie! I always love it when members bring up old posts like this because we have so many new members as we go along and others may benefit from it as well.  ;D Good luck!

Our first tutorial! I hope this helps. I tried to keep it as succinct as possible while also giving the details you need. Please ask any questions! And let me know what kinds of tutorials you'd like to see here at the forum!


Thanks for this video Erica! I spent a whole week trying to figure out how to do this. Wish I saw this video before trying to figure it out on my own. This simplifies everything in such a coherent way! Thank you for sharing the process!!!!  SO EXTREMELY HELPFUL!

I just recommended this video for what may be the 100th time, and realized I wasn't sure if I ever officially posted a thank you for it! So, thank you thank you! I cannot tell you how many times I've watched it, and what a valuable resource I've found it to be. Greatly appreciated!

Hi Erica and others.  Love this tutorial and have used it many times.  All of a sudden when I am trying to select specific text with magic wand from the original, cleaned background and drag to new doc - magic wand is selecting all of the text.   HELP.  Anyone having this problem and know if I have hit something to cause this???  Thanks so much!!!!!

Thank you so much for this tutorial.  I always thought that digitizing would be so complicated that I have been afraid to try it.  I think not being able to do it has held me back on a lot of my projects.  This was so clear and easy to understand.  I was even able to modify for photoshop elements.  I feel like a whole new world has opened up.  Thank you!!

Thanks, Erica, for the response.  I don't know what was going on that day, never had the issue again.  Ended up just shutting down my computer and reopening and it stopped.  Go figure.  It would not cooperate until I did that. 

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Whenever anything goes wrong in our house, my kids like to say, "Thank you for calling tech support. Have you tried turning it off and turning it back on again?"  ;D

I'm glad it worked out. Happy Thanksgiving!
