I was that person just like you years ago that was so fed up with all the material out there on computer training. Every time I tried to learn another program, there was nothing out there but a big book I had to read. I had my Bookshelf full of "you name it" Photoshop books and videos that all left me with nothing but an empty feeling inside. All the tips in books and on the internet always seemed incomplete and I had to guess many of the steps that were not mentioned or left out of the lesson. It drove me nuts. Good News for You... It was never your fault for not understanding school or instructions. It is always the "Instructor" that is in charge of making the learning extremely easy to understand and most importantly--Fun to do. Period. This is why I failed High school and dropped out of College. If the FUN is missing your attention and desire drops quickly. I am living proof that if your attention is not present and you are not totally excited with what you are learning, you will miss or forget 90% of what you were taught. I've solved this problem.

If you know the same tips that I do, you can create just about anything imaginable.
