It was hard work and I did pretty well up until the save to web option came up and I lost some of the journalling in translation. Ah well, there is room for improvement. It says, '’Saturday 8th January 2011 – last year before my teens!’. I have ordered a book to guide me through the next steps so watch this space.

Hi Lorraine,
I saw your question on WCS. This is what I do.
File>Save As (name 0f project.psd) with a copy in the Elements Organizer.
Layer>Flatten Layer (click yes to "discard unused layers?")
File>Save As (name of project.jpg)This saves it as a high-res jpg so you can print it out later if you want to. I have a folder called Hi-Res JPGs.
File>Save for Web>jpg medium 60% (In yet another folder called WEB, I name them WEBnameofproject.jpg so that I know it's not sharp enough for printing, just to be viewed on computer monitors, example, for your blog).
Hope this helps. I have found it's a steep learning curve, but after some months, realized that I survived! And now it's fun! Good luck.
