Now..this is fun stuff

Copy and paste! Some of these definetly need some more work but right now I'm just trying to get the process mastered. Lots got done today. Elise has her car on the road and it's safe to drive. After much running around and going from body shop to mechanic to inspection station and then changing out the brakes I'm done with her car for a while. I treated myself for all that effort by playing with the PSE6.0 program for a while this afternoon.

Play Time with PSE6.0

Again I'm experimenting with what Photoshop Elements can do.

The best instructions I have received are the online video tutorials found on You Tube and Google Videos. I watch and then I practice. The baby just awoke so my play time for today is over. I have to have uninterupted

time to play with my pics so I put it away when she is up and about. Thankfully the temps here are starting to cool down a bit. I still have limbs and tree debris stacked in front of my house at the curb awaiting the cleanup crews to come by and haul it all away. I spoke with a friend who had family in Galveston. They lost their house and almost lost their lives. The damage is immense there and the odor of rotten bodies clouds the city. The friend said the news isn't reporting the dead bodies found in the city as they did with Katrina but he said it was just as bad there as Katrina was to New Orleans.
Thankfully hurricane season will soon be past and we can all relax here on the Gulf Coast.

Housework..for sure now!

Another Photoshop Experiment

I'm still experimenting here. Isn't there an old saying "experimenting makes perfect"? or something CLOSE to that anyway! This pic is in the very first rough stage. I'll be working on it for a while. I'm a bit slow and unsteady at editing. This is the MOST fun as I look around at my scattered house, unmade beds, dirty laundry and dishes in the sink. It might be a while till I get back here to post an improved version of this picture.

PhotoShop Joy

Ah...the wonders of what photo editing can do! I'm learning to Photoshop and I realize I need lots more practice. The pictures posted are of my sister taken recently at a family reunion. I've been doing a little "editing" and this is where I am right now. I'll continue to tweak the pictures; I'm on the shallow side of the learning curve of editing. I've learned so much and there is still so much more to learn.

This is another Photoshop magic photo!

The wonders of photography. I remember when I used to shoot with my trusty 35mm and do light readings, depth of field, and other settings to get the look I wanted. I fear those days have disappeared with the appearance of the digital age.
