Updated notes about Cintiq stations (those that are the new purchases): Mr. Poorte, our Tech Facilitator, has been working tirelessly since the Cintiqs arrived on Thursday of last week to get them all installed and working, and we appreciate it. The latest information about the situation is this: we are still struggling with resolving the issue of our new Cintiqs. The district technology people are involved now, so we are hopeful that it will be resolved soon. If you have a yellow sticky on your computer, it is out of order for now.
Cintiq Q&A: What do the buttons on the Cintiqs do, anyway? For the 22HD (the newer, wider Cintiqs) you only need to press the i (or information) button on the top right of the Cintiq. You will see a screen that defines what each button's function is...for the 21UX (the older, narrower Cintiqs) you simply touch the upper left button to get the same information.

Wrapping up Boot Camp! This is all video content that is from lynda.com. I have made a playlist of intermediate level information that will be helpful to you as you continue to learn what we have left to cover in Photoshop. In a day or so, you will begin to have daily exercises or "projects" from the things that are covered in this list. Here is the link to access the playlist. Watch during class at your own pace!
