Phun with Photoshop

I really really do.

I received CS3 as a gift from some friends - and could spend hours playing. A "simple" post can take me hours depending on the original condition of the photos. I would love a nice dSLR, I am curious if I would spend as much time editting and playing....probably as I enjoy it so much.

I thought I'd share some before and after pics, some are more subtle changes than others. I still have a lot to learn, and I am trying to read up on actions now and get some experience with some of the more subtle tricks and the little tools that make it all go smoother (any and all advice is welcome!!)

What a difference a little cropping and light correction can do:

Playing with exposure, lighting, and shadows:

Did you like this? I might do it again. I like showing the fun things I can do with photoshop and editting...

  1. Totally jealous... trying to swing all the cool adjustments and processing in Digital Image Pro... which just isn't as tricky as Photoshop!

    Those are great processing shots! I really enjoyed this post. Would love to be able to make that sky look the same way in my pics (as you did in the carousel one!)

  4. That is so neat! I could correct/improve all of my photos with that. :o)

  5. Great job with the editing! You are doing it the correct way - learning how to use it first before hoping to actions. Actions (in my opinion) are like "cheating". I went straight to actions and have yet to teach myself how to properly use the software...shame on me!
