Glossary

Hi. As a newbie I am finding there are lots of abbreviations and terms I'm not familiar with. I was thinking it would be helpful to have some kind of glossary. For example what is a mask, an overlay, an action etc? I felt rather silly this week asking what a blog train is, but now I know. I mentioned in the challenges thread I didn't understand the different kinds of challenges and someone (I'm sorry I don't remember their screen name) gave me a wonderful explanation. A glossary might be a good place for this info as well. As for abbreviations I have now figured out what lo stands for and I know know that pp doesn't always mean previous poster but can mean participation prize. I am wondering if something like this may be helpful to other newbies. The more I try to understand digital scrapbooking the more terms and abbreviations I don't understand. Thank you so much to the many people that have been so helpful here. Happy scrapping, Roni

Other Terms like a mask, an overlay, an action etc?
are Designer's Terms, or Graphics Software designation for certain tasks if you will..

In other words there are board abbreviations:
PP, LO...etc but others are how the Computer Program calls certain tasks, commands, techniques or "effects" that the user wants to do.

hope that helps, if wrong, please add to my note.
