Just a Little Photoshop Fun

Happy Early Memorial Day Weekend!

Still feeling a bit under the weather, and itching to do something creative,
I decided to work a little digital magic on one of my existing photos.

You'll recall the post I did a few days ago
featuring my wonderful bentwood chair?

Well, I thought it would be fun to play a bit more with that image,
and brush up on my Photoshopping skills.

Now mind you, I use the term Photoshop somewhat loosely,
when in reality I alternate between at least half a dozen photo editing programs. 

I just think it's a tremendous amount of fun to play
and tweak and let my imagination take over!

So....let's get started!

Do you think that I printed out a copy
of my photo and then created this flowery vignette?
Think again!
All digital. Isn't that amazing?

Here's the original image...

But where else can I take this?


But wait!
Let's stick my boy Havok in the same book!

Original image...

and voila!

The Literary Husky, First Edition.

How about my watch face, then?

Original image...

And through the magic of digital wizardry...

Cool beans, right?

You want to have the same fun?

Go HERE and play!

Happy Friday!

Amazing what getting pumped on drugs can do. Great images!

Looks like you are feeling creative again! Yea! I don't even need to go here, I would love to learn all this...but I would become addicted! Lezlee

Mary said...

That is amazing! I really am going to have to make an effort to figure out my camera. I am missing all the fun! I think I need to buy "The Idiots Guide to SLR Cameras"...but I am not even sure I can even understand that! ;o)

Anne ~
That is soooo amazing !! I want to learn photoshop so badly !! I have photoshop elements, I wonder if I could do that with it ~

Privet and Holly said...

That's amazing, Anne {JUST like YOU}! I will click and pop on over to whatever cool direction you are pointing me in. {Shhh, don't tell Mr. Privet about this.... he thinks I spend too much time on the computer as it is....} Continue to feel well, sweet friend. If you are sick much longer, you might be writing one of these photos enhancing programs, you are getting SO GOOD!!! xx P&H

Tracey said...

Very cool Anne!!! I've never seen that done before! There is soooooooo much that can be done with editing these days it is mind boggling! I love it though, even if it is a time sucker! :)

Have a great Memorial weekend!

Calsidyrose said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I went to the Photofunia site last night and the time zipped by as I converted my scanned graphics using the "Engraving" action. What a neat site!

Debra@Common Ground said...

That book plate engraving gizmo has to be THE coolest thing that I've seen. You know, every time I see what you've come up with I look at my my little camera and it looks pitiful. boo hoo.
The kids left this afternoon for Arkansas to float, so if you're feeling better and can actually "talk", I'll be around Sunday and Monday. Hope you're taking it easy,
love ya,

Sue said...
