    Is this going to work with Photoshop elements? I usually use Digital Image Suite (Microsoft), but I did buy Photoshop Elements not too long ago.

    I must say, this is really exciting! Can't wait to see all this cool stuff that is coming on your blog!!

  2. No it wont work in either Elements or DIP sorry - neither support masks in the way that they are used here but there are work arounds for Elements - I will see if I can post a version for elements later on

  3. Oh thanks Lauren. This was on my list of things to learn after I saw your beautiful layout.
