Weekly Giveaway – Lets Start the New Year Off With A Little Organization

Forget Spring Cleaning.
If you had a few free moments during the winter holiday, you must have checked out your photo files.
Either looking for that special shot to send an old friend, putting together those family photos to book up and make your holiday gift, or maybe just adding all of the new ones you just took.
Oh yeah.
Unless you have tagged your photos as you went, the old visual method had to do.
Well, this week we have a few things that should help you do all of those things easier.
From Software-Cinema we have 3 Discs for you. 2 are geared more for the Photoshop CS3 folks and one for those of you using Photoshop Elements.
1 of the Photoshop discs will give you a ton of training in photo illustration, plus the workflow help.
The other is primarily workflow training.
On the Elements disc, you learn how to make excellent creations, destined to share with friends and family.
