Playing With Photo$hop

Lately I have discovered the cheater way to use Photo$hop. To use actions. They are basically a set of instructions that you download (or write on your own - but since I am PS stupid, I just use the ones that other people have written) and tell PS to use all at one time on your pictures.

This picture of Belle I just love but it was too dark in the tube of the playground I never used it for anything but I pulled it up today and here's what I did...

Here's the original...


First I lightened it....


Then I made it black and white...


And I also added a blue action...which I think I like the best. :)

I would probably get reprimanded by real Photo$hop people, like my b-i-l, but I can't help it! I wanted to do something with these pictures I have and I wanted to use Photo$hop...we have it so I might as well put it to use.

I LOVE the B&W photo! She's beautiful in all of them, though! :)

It's funny that I've come here today as I've been thinking of PhotoShop lately. We don't own it and I'm wondering if it's worth the cost... what are your opinions? Do you use it a lot with your photos? I have an average camera and am debating weather to get a better camera or a better photo program. Thanks for ANY suggestions!

BTW, it's been a while since I've visited and I don't know how long you've had a new header, but I LOVE IT! It's fantastic!

LOL I like the last one too. I use photosh*p for work all of the time. But I never get to do fun stuff with it - everything I use it for deals with manipulating screen caps.
