Playing with editing.





I got a NEW laptop for Christmas! I am so proud to have this thing. Of course, it would be so nice if I new how to use it to its potential, but we can't have everything we want in life. My new computer came with photoshop-a program I desperately need. Have I been using it? NO, instead I have been toying with the photo editing that comes with it. Then, I found Picnik via a friend's blog and LOVE it! It's super user friendly. I know, I know, with photoshop I should look nowhere else right? It's just that I am NOT techno savvy and photoshop is going to take some learning how to use. Another thing I have noticed about my new laptop is that the colors on it are very different than on other computers. I edited some of my photos and then looked on hubby's computer and was like WOW-hit me in the eye with the color! Not exactly what I intended. So, the laptop and I are going to have to spend some time together making friends with one another. If only I didn't need to sleep-I could get so much more done!

Photoshop definitely takes some time getting used to. Did you get Elements? It's much more user friendly than the big CS4. Also, to help with the color issue you can buy an inexpensive monitor color calibrator! I've been thinking about doing so, they say it's amazing! Your edits are cute!

Photoshop, any version, is well worth the learning curve. Check out thepioneerwoman.com's photography section for great tutorials, tips and free actions. Also, coffeeteaphotography.blogspot.com is EXCELLENT!!! for tips, tricks, tutorials, layers, actions and lots of great stuff. I use Elements exclusively since losing my desktop version of CS2. Love it to pieces and coffeetea is my favorite spot for actions.
