Can I just say that I am thoroughly enjoying my Photoshop Class and all the cool new tricks I can apply to my photos. And no, I do not consider that ‘cheating’, it is merely ENHANCING the beauty of the shot. You’ve still got to get the shot in the first place – now you can just have more artistic freedom with it on the back end!
My only complaint with the class so far is that it is 4 TEN HOUR DAYS. Seriously, that is way too long for this pregnant girl to pay attention. I’m ready to nap by 11:30. In fact, I tried hunting down a couch over the lunch break last week, but didn’t have any success… :(
Here are a few of the useful things I learned how to do this week:
Adding a Shadow to a Person
Sarah: Before Color Correction and Smoothing
Sarah: After Color Correction and Smoothing (please note the baby-smooth skin, added eyelashes, and brightened eyes)
Adding Borders using the Mask Tool, Brushes and the Color Matching Tool
Designing Shapes Using Fun Brushes and the Free Transform Tool
