Before you despair while using this tool, think about where you align to. What is you anchor and how do you want to place your snippets. Then you’ll find a sequence of steps to get to your result. This needs a bit thinking but beats moving with the move tool any time.
If you watch these videos with a mobile device you should consider to switch the feed to the new MOBILE feed. And I still need help with iTunes! Apple locks Linux users out of the system – and I will not install Windows here.
If you are a photographer, you have to go over to WTF WTD – What the Duck! A daily comic about photography. It’s a must.
