Photoshop

I really love using photoshop. I had no idea what I had been missing for so long. I would definitely consider myself a novice photoshopper, but here's what I know so far.

  • You can use it to make your own blog header. I have way too much fun and spend way too much time playing around with mine. Victoria and I both buy digital scrapbook kits and use the elements in photoshop to make ours. I think it might be easier to do in another Adobe application, but I don't know how to use any other ones.
  • Actions--I learned it all from my fake friend, The Pioneer Woman. You can download them from her and use them to have all sorts of funky effects. The post I linked to shows her using 9 different actions on the same photo. It's so very cool.
  • I am still learning how to use the appropriate white balance on my camera and get all the settings right. For those times that I fail, photoshop helps me out. I still use picasa if I am editting a picture only slightly--cropping or lightening.
  • Completing the picture. My clever father used photoshop to perfect this family picture in Hawaii. Guess who was NOT invited?

So if you are reading this in google reader, click on over and see the new design. And go buy photoshop--its worth the $600. Just kidding, it's not.

EDIT: Here is another picture of my brother, Ben, from my dad the photoshop whiz.

  1. Is it Ben? Poor guy. Can't believe he got left at home.
