About Stephanie's LVS Online PI8 and PI7 Classes


Review students' class evaluations! | Course Descriptions

LVS Online is a wonderful online school. I have taken 3 classes there myself and I was very impressed with the quality of the instructors and course material, their reasonable prices and fair business practices. Online schools come and go and the quality of instructors can vary, so when I decided to teach PI classes, I felt comfortable associating myself with the great folks at LVS Online. Registration is open now for the next session, which include my Introduction to PI8 class and my new Photo Editing With PI8 class. Please note that my older Introduction to PI7 and Intermediate PI7 classes are also available on CD.

Classes are only $25 for new students, and $20 for returning students. So be good to yourself -- take a class, learn a new skill and get bargain prices on software. :o)

New classes are posted on Saturday mornings. I check the class discussion board several times a day to answer questions and review homework. Students who take the class for certification must complete all of the homework assignments. The course descriptions and student evaluations of my PI8 and PI7 classes follow.

Introduction to PhotoImpact 8: This six week course provides new users of Ulead's PhotoImpact 8 with a solid foundation in the essentials of using the program, so you can work quicker and smarter.

Students will learn to use PI8's new tools and panels, become aware of changes to established tools and commands, make and manage selections in a variety of ways, create and edit path, image and text objects, save web images optimally, make use of the EasyPalette and custom presets, import new stamps, perform common image editing tasks such as color correction, sharpening focus and removing red eye, make masks, edit frames and create a web page with rollover buttons and formatted text from a UFO web page template. Students must know how to upload images to their own server and reference them online. Students are eligible for a 15% discount on any software purchased directly from Ulead.

Students are eligible for a 15% discount on any software purchased directly from Ulead. Details will be found in the classroom. Prerequisites: Intro to PhotoImpact 8 or already an experienced PI user. Requirements: Students must know how to upload images and files to their own server and reference them online.

Liked_best_about_class: Stephanie's teaching style makes PI8 so understandable.I have had PI since version PI8 and I have never learned so much since I took classes with Stephanie.She has introduced concepts and ideas that you would never get from reading the books published by Ulead.I think that she should write their instructional texts since she does a more superior job than they do.The accompanying texts with PI never give you the depth of knowledge and perception that you gain from Stephanie's classes.I have learned more from her in six weeks than I learned from three years of reading Ulead's textbooks.I am just ready for MORE and MORE.I can't seem to get enough of steph and her classes and tutorials.Just keep them coming!

Improvement_suggestions: I would like more and longer classes. She has taught me more than I ever thought was contained in PI.She has opened paths of knowledge and understanding that I never knew existed.

Learning with Stephanie is so easy as the instructions are clear and concise, and always with encouragement once the exercises are completed. I sincerely hope that there will be more PI8 courses to take. If school had been this much fun and so interesting, I'd probably have stayed in school much longer, learning in this class was a pleasure. Thanks Stephanie & LVS.

Liked_best_about_class: 1) The lessons were nicely broken up into reading material and short practical exercises using the new material. That helped to keep the interest level high - we could read for a while, then push pixels for a while.

2) Ulead (the software vendor) has very poor documentation. Stephanie does a wonderful job of explaining many of these things, as well as suggesting alternate ways to get to a desired effect.

3) Stephanie is very skilled at walking the line between providing helpful comments, without seeming to be critical. I think this is important when trying to keep people motivated. She focuses on the positives, but gives gentle nudges to show the way to do better.

Improvement_suggestions: Several of the students took the lessons, and branched off to do extra work beyond the homework. These were mentioned on the class forum, and Stephanie responded to each and every one of these "extra credit" tries. I think it would be lots of fun to go beyond this and formalize such efforts by having an end-of-class free-form project, where students could (optionaly) post a "term project" for all to see. Even cooler would be to make such a forun avaiable to all LVS students, so they could see the work of students in other classes.
