Before and After

 I would love to take a Photoshop class and learn more about all there is to do with that incredible website. I know I am missing so much. Even fumbling around on my own I have been able to do fun things with photos.

The chair after, sort of dark and mysterious

 After photoshop. I think I should call this, “The Way To My Heart”

  1. Ooooh…I love the “distortions” on Photoshop…though I rarely use them. But when I do, interesting things always happen…just like you’ve shown us here. Experimenting and fooling around can be the best teachers. Oh yes, and mistakes…I usually learn much from them too.

    Meilleurs voeux!!

  2. I have been wanting to get photoshop for so long…it’s so expensive though! I was even looking at it yesterday tossing up whether to take the plunge. Love what you’ve done with the photos, looks like you had fun!

  3. I’m still just trying to figure out my digital camera settings! Thanks for showing what can be done with a little fiddling.

  4. Hey there,

    I’ve just recently stumbled upon your blog. I used to live in Provence and I miss it like crazy so I was looking for different French blogs or blogs of foreigners in France. Anyway, at some point I came upon yours and I’ve been visiting it regularly for about a week and looking through the archives and such.

    I just wanted to take the time to let you know how much I’ve enjoyed your blog thus far. You have some incredible photographs up and some of the pictures you’ve taken and memories you’ve shared on your blog have really reminded me of France and how much I miss it. I can’t tell you how much that means to me, to have some way – however small – to be back in that world. I know that I appreciate it and I’m sure that other people who have stopped by in the past have thought the same.

    As far as this post in particular goes – I absolutely love the picture of the heart over the door in Morocco!! Keep up the incredible work!!

    Best wishes,

  5. Thats one of my fave hobbies Linda – playing with photos – I always use PhotoImpact but have just been given Photoshop and intend to start learning it – it\’s enormous fun. Your heart photo is stunning…well done.

  6. Linda, if you have any Photoshop questions, feel free to ask me. I’m a whiz with it and use it often. I’m going to send you an email with a website you can use to learn it thoroughly online…it’s much cheaper than a class and much more thorough.

    By the way, you’ll be especially interested in the contrast settings in Photoshop, since you are a photographer.

  7. See now I would have said your masthead was a product of Photoshop. But… to be honest with you, I have no idea what I\\\’m talking about. I\\\’m masthead/Photoshop/artistically illiterate. And yet, somehow, I still feel qualified to tell you that those were some very cool things you did with the heart and chair! 🙂
