I am learning to use Photoshop Elements 8. And in doing so how to add textures to my photos. I am loving it and how it can transform a photo. You can see more on my photo blog Digital Photo Walk.

A traveling exhibition based on Doug Keister’s highly acclaimed book, “Stories in Stone,” is available to all qualifying organizations on a month-by-month basis for the shipping cost and a modest exhibition fee.
As the leading authority on cemetery symbolism and iconography, Doug’s exhibition will guide your visitors through the significance of the language of cemetery symbols, which were designed to speak to future generations about the deceased bearer of same. In a very real sense, memorials erected to the dead are the material representatives of those now departed, and we often draw our impressions of what these persons must have been like from the things we find upon them. They say that cemeteries may exist more for the living than the dead. Only to a point. Whatever one may think about cemeteries, we, as well as they, want to be remembered. Doug teaches us to do that.
Doug’s recent appearance on “CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood” program, speaks to the esteem rendered upon this most talented, knowledgeable, preeminent authority on the subject of cemetery symbolism. Douglas Keister has given his Stories in Stone presentations in dozens of cities all over America and at prestigious locations like the Cooper-Union in New York City, Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, and The Smithsonian in Washington DC.
The self-contained exhibition comes complete with 2 double-sided screens and 1 kiosk styled screen; 3 display racks (others available) and 1 introductory display panel. Display materials include: 1 Introductory roll-up panel, 43 13x19 panels with velcro, 10 20x24 panels with velcro. Lights do not come with exhibit, but may be suitable for darker location.
