I Wasn't Going to Post
I decided yesterday that I wasn't going to post anything to my blog for the next couple of days. At the end of the year I'll be making a book of this year's posts, and I need to slow down on the entries so that the book isn't humongous.
But this morning a friend loaned me a Scott Kelby book called "Down & Dirty Tricks for photoshop CS". I was looking at some of the fun things that can be done with images in photoshop, but when I tried one of the "tricks" I realized I couldn't do it because I only have elements 7 and some of the CS functions are not available in elements. That's why elements is so
cheap inexpensive. Usually elements is totally sufficient, but I was a little disappointed.
Then I remembered that I have Scott Kelby's book for Elements 7. There aren't as many tricks as in the other book, but it has some funky ideas, and since I was psyched to try a special effect, I got the book out and practiced a little.
This is what I came up with. I like it.
