Fun With Photoshop

For a lack of a better post today, I'm going to show some before and after photos on Photoshop. The changes aren't drastic, but I think it's very important to have at least Photoshop Elements to give your photos that little extra boost.

Exhibit A:

Before



After




Exhibit B:

Those look great! I was given Photoshop before we moved, but I have no clue how to use it!

Brittany said...

Ugh I love the photos. I just want something that will help me edit my phots. I don't need super crazy photo editing software but it is all so confusing!

Jessica Lynn said...

I wish I knew how to work Photoshop. I'm a very computer-savvy girl, but the second I open Photoshop I become dumb as a doornail. Maybe I'll find someone to teach me someday!

(thanks for the nice comment in my blog! I just love scouring the Web for fun ideas!)

I have Photoshop but it's too confusing for me.

Very nice! I'm making due with a free Lightroom someone gave me, but I'd LOVE to get full Photoshop...all it takes is money....

SinGal said...

Ohhhh I really like the second one. I would love to have that as a print and hang in my house! Very beautiful!!!

Kiki said...

Nice! I have Elements but don't know a whole lot of techniques yet.

lola said...

Love the pictures! I find it interesting to see what the "auto adjust" will do vs playing with the colors and contrast yourself. It's fun!

Sgt and Mrs Hub said...

I have found that I have tons of fun taking the photo and tons of fun editing. I love them both!

You will never regret taking tons of photos - you will only ever regret the ones you didn't take!

That's pretty cool. We're looking into a new computer soon (thank the Lord) and I'm thinking about getting photoshop for it.

jlc said...

that's AWESOME... his Abs honestly look more defined.... wanna do one of me?? hahah!

You can definitely tell the difference! For beginner photographers ( like myself ) I've found that flickr.com's editing software (picnik) is actually not half bad. You can control a lot of the colors / highlights/ shadows /contrast etc. and they have a few cool one-click tools. I use that because I can't afford the $600 Photoshop software, but it's good for what I use it for. Someday I will go all out and get Photoshop but it'll probably be awhile.

love photoshop. i admit, though, that i cheat and rely heavily on actions. pioneer woman has great ones that she gives out for FREE if you'd like to try them out.
