Photoshop. It's hard.

It's 11 p.m. And I'm up. Not good.

Why? Because I'm really really trying to figure out Photoshop Elements 8. It's fun but it's hard. At least for me. I think I used to be smart. But my babies stole my brain cells. It's okay. They were worth it.

Here the original photo. Isn't she pretty? She's mine. She stole my brain cells.

Now what I wanted to do was make the curtains in the background all soft and blurry and put all the focus on Eden's pretty eyes. But somehow, I ended up making it night time in the background with an unnatural glow around Eden. It looks like she's floating through space after being dipped in nuclear power plant waste.

The good news is that I have figured out how to remove pimples from people's faces. That's a mighty handy trick to have when you're a youth pastor's wife who takes oodles of pictures of teenagers!! (Of-course only the stinky boys get zits around here... the young ladies never get, ahem, blemishes, right girls?)

So if anyone wants to be a pimple free, toxic glowing, space floater, let me know!! I'd me happy to take your picture!

Check out picnik on the web Kayte, it is free and really good. Easy. You can still learn Photoshop, you must be working with raw film right? Do you have a SLR Digital.
