    It takes a ton of practice...and just messing around with the program. I've been working with it for a few years...and I still learn new stuff every time I use it.

    I'd be happy to write up a tutorial for everyone if you want. I've got lots of experience with Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, all of the Adobe programs.

    To resize a picture without distorting it you can do this:

    Edit>Free Transform----Then click on the corner and hold shift while you resize it, this constrains the proportions. Just make sure to let go of the mouse button before letting go of shift.

    It's all in the way you hold your mouth when chopping.

    I'd love a tutorial. I've got moderate experience and can make a sig if I have to, but it seems like my limiting factor is creativity more than it is my skills.
