If you are looking to improve your skill level with Photoshop CS or Photoshop Elements (aren't we all?) I recommend that you enroll in the upcoming Photo Magic Class with Marie Otero.
Marie Otero, aka The Lost Aussie on the loose will be running the next session of the Photo Magic Class starting on October 29th, 2011. Marie is the best teacher of anything "Photoshop" and I have taken several online classes from a variety of sources in the past couple of years. Her class is "aimed at intermediate-beginners to advanced users of Photoshop Elements or Photoshop Creative Suite and runs for 4 weeks."
Having learned most of what I know about PSE from several of Marie's classes, I can attest that, as with all her classes, Photo Magic "...is jam packed with creative techniques including basic photo editing skills, portrait retouching for people and pets, adding texture, blur and bokeh to create really eye catching images, learn how to use displacement maps and tips for creating web images including custom bog banners, avatars and much much more."
For further information about the class you can check out the full class description HERE. You can register for Marie's class HERE.
To participate in Marie's class, you need "A basic working knowledge of your program... - ie. you need to be able to locate and open your files. Know how to move and resize them and be comfortable with downloading and opening zip files from the internet."
