I have enjoyed learning how to use various graphics programs -- Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, and now DAZ Studio.  On this page, I hope to share with you my joy of making graphics with these tutorials that I have written.

My usage terms are simple:
While I own the intellectual copyright to what I have written,  the graphic that you create using my tutorials are your own creations.  Put your watermark on them.  You do not have to link back to my site.  However, I hope that you do share my tutorial links with others so that they  may also learn too.  Again, the graphic you create is yours; my tutorial is not. (Do not copy it onto another website.  Do not script it.  Make your own tutorial.)

If you own a PSP group and would like to use my tutorials, please do!  That is why I create them.  All I ask is that you send my link, not my page!
