Photoshop

Here it is- my first photoshop project. Yes, it sucks and it is extremely raw around the edges but I'm happy that I was able to conquer "layers" and "selection" by bringing the blue out of the black and white photo and separating myself from the background. I wanted to place my self on a starry night background but I didn't have the time to figure it out. Or rather, Gavin started drawing all over himself AND the living room wall and I decided my time was better spent elsewhere..... say supervising the boy's own artistic endeavors.

Who wants to tutor me in Photoshop?

Awesome, as always. The blue of your necklace is very vivid. I think this will look fantastic with a starry background.

If I knew anything about Photoshop I would tell you, but all I know how to do is Auto Contrast lol.

Thanks alimum, kara, and sunny.

Kelly- I have the photoshop elements manual by Brundage. It is a MUST. It literally walks you through every step.

you are well on your way, I have had photo shop for almost 6 months and have only used it for cropping. I know, lame. I think you are off to a great start. The Mom jean shot is the best yet! Good luck, I love looking at the results.

Amanda, it looks great. I can't wait to see what you do as you get more comfortable with the software.
