Playing with Photoshop!


I received Photoshop Elements 3.0 as a gift for my birthday over a year ago. I really haven't had time to sit down and learn to use it. Most of the editing can be done in iPhoto now. I checked out a book called "Scrapbooking with Photoshop Elements" from the library, and I was inspired to try using the program again. I have always loved the way a colorized photo looks, and I knew the exact photo I would use to try this technique. This photo is of my youngest son when he was almost a year old. He was sitting on my daughter's lap, and we had put a brightly colored flower from the yard behind his ear. I love how it reflects his energetic personality! I can't wait to try the next technique!

wow, that is a stunning photo, you should sell it as a card. there is a place called redbubble.com, you can put your photos/art on there, and a company makes the items for you, and you get some money from it. I think you would sell a few of these if you do, its amasing!!!
