Also when posting please include the following where applicable:

@Ausphotos Welcome, great to have you.

What brings you here? Do you have a favorite software?

recently purchased Photostory Deluxe and also Movie Edit Pro Premium and need to learn :) My favourite software would have to be photoshop though! :)

Aw, bummer... now you have to leave the community. Just kidding. 😄

What type of learner are you? Do you need video tutorials or do you study the manuals? Just let us know where you need help. @johnebaker and @emmrecs probably have good sources to recommend and when you have a specific question, please, create a new thread and keep John's tips in mind! 🙂

@Ausphotos

There are many how to and getting started resources in the Tutorials section of this forum, on Youtube and also in the Magix magazine.

As first steps read the installed PDF manuals available under Help for both Photostory and Movie Edit Pro (MEP) and watch this tutorial on getting started with MEP by John CB.

There are fewer tutorials about Photostory, however once you get the hang of MEP then Photostory becomes easier even though it is a less advanced program.

. . . . . My favourite software would have to be photoshop though! . . . .

Eeeuw - not any more for me - I dumped it many years ago - Paintshop Pro X9 is my favourite, @MAGIX_Redaktion will probably tell me to stand in the naughty corner for mentioning this 😬.

If you have any issues or what to know how to do something that is not covered by a tutorial then ask in the appropriate section of the forum - for Photostory ask under Photos and Graphics, Fotostory and for MEP under Video, Movie Edit Pro.

HTH
