Photoshop

For the next few months (and beyond if I'm still motivated), I'm dedicating Tuesday nights to Photoshop. Right now I'm taking Marie Otero's Digital Magic 3. I'm (re)learning the basics. I keep "learning" over the years but I keep forgetting (so, obviously I haven't learned well).

One of my favourite things to do is to make a photo b&w and then bring parts of the colour back. Here are Lauren and I at her graduation.


(oh, and by the way, I'm growing my hair back out into a little bob again. I'm feeling too manly lately.....)

sweet pic martha. I like your hair in a bob.
and thank you so much for the awesome card you made! I had thought about making some new years cards and sending them out, since I didnt send any christmas cards (got too caught up in other areas) I suppose if I'm going to do that, I should do it soon!
HUGS!!

Very cool picture. I loved Marie's class and am looking forward to the next one.

That's the one thing I want to learn, but I don't think my abbreviated photoshop support it...

Cool way to make sure you get the lessons you need. I have been wanting to take a Photoshop class (in person, not on line) because I think that is the only way I will really dedicate myself to learning it.
Love the pic !

Love the Photoshop effects, very nice. And I had to laugh about the Manly hair... I know just what you mean. I just let my hair grow out a bit myself, as it was entirely too matronly for my! I am after all married, and I STILL like to be somewhat attractive! :)
