Default Finished! Photography tutorial on CD in my Etsy

Whew! I've completed my tutorial on picture taking. It's in a CD form because it is a visual tutorial with over 140 pictures and diagrams on how to take photos without a bunch of expensive lighting equipment and how to use Photoshop or Elements to make your photos look like the beads you want to sell.

I think it's too big to email. I tried emailing it and it got bounced out of my husband's email box.

I can't take all the credit, however. Though I took all the photos and the diagrams, he put them together for me.

It's $19 and a dollar for shipping in the US, 2.00 outside of the country. I will ship them first class, so you will get them in 2 or 3 days.

Kevan;

Do we have to have Microsoft Word 2007 to do the steps in your tutorial? You mention it in your example page. I don't have Word. I have Works. I also have Photoshop.....an old version....Photoshop 6.0.

I'd like to buy your tutorial but I'm not sure I have the programs I need in order to take advantage of your instructions..........

Thanks
J

No, it's a PDF file just like all the other tutorials, it's just on CD because of it's size.

I'm going to try to figure out if I can send it in two parts and then we can send by email, but it's 27 mgs as it is.

No, the book was created in Word. You don't need Word to do anything regarding your photos.
