Where are the tutorials that they are to watch? If tutorials are on Adobe site, are they titled with the same titles you listed? Also, how do your students turn in their work? New iMac lab and no way to submit image to instructor. I have them save and show it to me for now.

Jacqueline,

I noticed your Intro to Photoshop resource does not have a creative commons license. I would like to use your resource in a free online course for adults who are new to Photoshop. Please let me know your thoughts on the use of your resource. Excellent work!

Mike
