Pearls from Phoenix Rising Intermediate PSP Class

Phoenix Rising
Intermediate PSP Class:
How It Works

The PSP Class is run as an e-group.

Each Friday the Group Leader (Anitra) calls Roll Call. Please respond as soon as you get the message so we know who is still with us and whose email has gone bust. :-)

Every Monday the Anitra sends the list a tutorial; actually, a link for a tutorial, because each tut has illustrations for every step!

Some tutorials will be written by Anitra. Most tutorials are gathered from all over the web, wherever authors grant permission for their use.

Each tutorial will involve learning by doing, creating a graphic of your own. You have until the following Sunday, one week, to create your graphic, following the tutorial.

Post your results to the list and show off! Be sure to post your graphic as a web-readable file (GIF or JPG) so that everyone can see it. Re-size your graphic to 250x250 pixels, and optimize it so that it takes the least possible file space while looking good. (We will have a tutorial on how to do this.) As a guideline, 250x250 graphics should be about 20kb to 30kb. Please send your graphics as attachments, instead of as in-line images inserted in the body of the post by copy-and-paste or by drag-and-drop. Not everyone can read the inline images.

If you have any questions about the tutorial, or need tubes, fonts or any other tools to do what you want to do with the tutorial, ask on list. This way we can all share the learning!

If you need extra time to do a tutorial, or simply cannot do anything one week because of Life, just let us know. Send a post to and four different moderators will get it! :-)

However, if you do not complete any assignments for two weeks, or respond to roll calls, without making prior arrangements — you will be unsubscribed until you have more time.

Tutorials are archived at the Yahoo Groups site, so you can catch up on any that you miss.
