    Chris, I have been scroll sawing for 5 or 6 years, earnestly for the last two. I throughly enjoyed your tutorial in “Making a Bird Pattern”. I have been making my own using “Coyote” and have been fustrated. I have cut several patterns designed by Jeff Zaffino, Sue Mey, Mike Williams, etc. and have cut 60 or more designs. I am wanting to get a program to better design my patterns. When I go to Office Depot or look on the internet I see several versions of Photoshop such as Photoshop Elements, and others with “4” , “5” or “7”. This confuses me. If I want to use photoshop, exactlly what program am I looling for? Or is it a combinations of Photoshop programs? Any help you can give will be appreciated!. Charles

    Your best bet is to use GIMP to create your scroll saw patterns. The program is free and there’s a free tutorial on how to use GIMP to make scrollsaw patterns at:
