Playing with Photoshop....

So my sister Becca came over and gave me a few pointers on how to use Photoshop. I just bought the basic Photoshop Ellements because it was on sale at Costco. Now I am not overwhelmed with my new Camera but with Photoshop as well. I could really waste a lot of time on the computer. This is so fun!!! But there is so much to learn. Anyway I thought I would show you some of my edited pictures....














Here is a before and after photoshop photo:

FUN! I can't seem to get registered with Becca-University... ;)

Actually -- she's tried a few times. I just get antsy and want to move on to the next, rather than perfecting the first. ;)

Cute! You should go to ILP (www.ilovephotography.com) Andrea Joki has a GREAT tutorial on clean processing-- it was a huge eye-opener for me :) And it's all on the free side too, so it's cool :)

Maybe I should have Becca come to my house and show me some of her tricks. :) Great looking pictures. I think photoshop is a hard one to figure out, and it annoys me to no end that there is no instruction manual.

I am becoming jealous of your photography skills and I need you to teach me! I love the picture of you and Brody looking at the temple. It's precious.

Wow! I love what you did with the photos. I'm too nervous to get photoshop. My mind is not so quick any more!

Thanks for posting on my blog. I love to find new people to stalk-through their blogs of course!

You're pictures are amazing. I'm starting to realize that I desperately need a new camera. Photoshop would be fun too, but I'll concentrate on that new camera first!

Cute, cute family!

How fun! Photoshop can be very addicting! You did a great job taking pictures, and editing them!
