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. 
(it's not as large as I expected it to be, but it will enlarge a little if you click on it)

Linda, I like this effect, but I think it would be more powerful if crop the bottom, make the solid area where your name is thinner to produce a more panoramic effect.

Nice work, Rob
