Now That I've Got It, Where Do I Put It?

If you use Photoshop Elements for your digital scrapbooking, there are a wealth of add-ons that you may either download for free or purchase. These add-ons come as brushes, layer styles, shapes, patterns, gradients, custom color swatches and actions. However, knowing where to place these items so that you may actually use them in Photoshop Elements can be somewhat confusing!

If you are relatively new to using Photoshop Elements, the above terms themselves may be overwhelming . . . learning a new program is a bit like learning a new language, isn't it? To add to the confusion, there are many versions of Photoshop Elements being used and the places to install the various add-ons differs from version to version.

Sue Chastain at About.com: Graphics Software explains where to put all these great add-ons, no matter what version of Photoshop Elements you are using. In addition, Sue offers links to some freebies that you will want to download. Be sure to bookmark this site so you will have it when you need it!

I have just updated my tutorial last night on add-ons (plug-ins)....to include PSE6. It's a litle lacking in the 4 & 5 version as I never had those versions, but the info should be close enough to work.
