More Jessica Sprague Photo Editing!

We’re at the end of our classes, today was the last tutorial =(
I’ve really enjoyed learning all these cool techniques for Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. All my pictures were taken with a Canon Rebel XTI and edited in PSE7

Let’s pick up where I left off…Day 10… creating your own clipping mask from a shape, then adding in your photo, two textures, a type overlay, some type in two fonts, and then finishing it off with the edge burning technique.

Day 11! Choosing a photo that has an object in clear view that you'd like to really highlight, while leaving the rest of the photo black and white. We used layer masks for this technique.

Day 12 One of the most popular professional techniques for framing up a set of photos is a storyboard. We learned how to create a three-panel storyboard of our own, including adding some text at the bottom. Again using those fun clipping masks!

And today, Day 13… creating a grid using clipping masks, and then really spicing it up with a brush.

And THEN…the BONUS! Sepia Tone on Multiple Photos, Selective Recolor and Type!!

How much fun is that!! Now I just need to find pics of each of the grandkids and make another one!!

I hope you’ve enjoyed looking as much as I’ve enjoyed making each one and sharing with you!!

This class came just at the right time…before our State Fair and County Fair llama shows AND before the garden gets too carried away! I canned 14 qts of green and yellow wax beans yesterday! The zucchini is producing like rabbits!! And it won’t be long till the tomatoes will be ready for …SALSA!!

Hope you’re having a fabulous day where you are!

Thanks for stopping!!
