    Hi, Could someone give me a steer in the right direction. I have a monthly subscription to PC but find it really difficult to see the video tutorials properly. I really want to see this particular video tutorial in detail. The problem is that the screen only shows half of the image so I can not see when it mentions what filters/layer have been added in the side panel.

    Any suggestions as to how I can fix this- please.

    I think this is awesome technique with beautiful inspiring results. 🙂

    Hi Debbie, try loading the videos in a separate player such as QuickTime and see if the same happens? You’ll find all the files inside the Disc Contents folder after ‘exploring’ the disc, and then choose Open With. Hope that helps 🙂
