photoshop 101

My attempt at learning Photoshop.

Before:

pc

After:

pc_edit

I did this with instructions my little sister gave me via gtalk. I’m also expecting some of her Digital Imaging notes 🙂 I didn’t even attempt removing the reflection of the curtains from the glass. One step at a time.

  • Nice work! I wish I had Photoshop & someone to teach me 🙁

  • Try online tutorials. If you want, I can pass the notes along.

  • Saajida

    Hey.. not too bad for a novice 😉
    try using the Magic Wand tool the next time though. Might make it much neater at the edges…? but looks good!

  • I’m busy studying in depth ethical guidelines and this gives a new meaning to the social (or manipulated) construction of subjective realities

  • @Saajida – will try that, thanks 🙂

    @Nooj – hmmm, it’s definitely interesting. I think if the person who owns the copyright to the image, he/she can do what she wants with it.

    I’m not getting email notifications on comments in this post, weird.

  • If you didn’t mention the word ‘curtains’ I wouldn’t even have known the difference! I’ll attribute that to my chronic exhaustion 🙂

  • Mariam

    Not bad at all. I’m impressed. Once you get hooked on Photoshop, there’s no going back 😉 Just ask Saaj.

  • @Azra – lol 😉

    @Mariam – thanks. Yeah, she’s helping me alot!

    I figured out the notification problem – they were going into my spam folder. All fixed.

    well done! … and like a magic wand it is transformed 🙂 …
    my son will learn photshop before he knows how to hold a pen!

  • @Naqiyah – yeah, I’m getting the hang of it.
    Lol! New age kids 😉
