Photoshopping about



Evidence that cabin-fever has struck.
Christmas time, family obligations paired with illness has meant that I have rather more time on my hands than expected. So apparently, when this occurs, I set out and try to acquire a new skill. I have had Photoshop loaded on my mac for ages, but really don't use it to its greatest capacity. Cropping and merging outfit photos pretty much represents my technical knowledge of the program, so recently I have been trying to broaden my understanding and experiment with some more techniques.
There are loads of tutorials on the tintaweb and I literally found out how to do the above by googling. I am still very much a novice but it is one of my new year's resolutions to become more competent with Photoshop and fashion some jazzy images. 


In other news, I am back to work tomorrow and am strangely relishing the thought of embracing a routine again. Late nights, even later mornings and eating food at anytime o'clock is all very well, but I am quite looking forward to regaining a sense of regularity again. This odd time in between Christmas and New Year feels like a week of Sundays and I am a habitual soul.

The world of photoshop I alien to me too. I downloaded 'Gimp' for my Mac the other day which is like photoshop but have so far only managed to add text to a photo! I feel like such an old technophobe! xx

I wish I had the patience to learn photoshop. My dad has all kinds of books about it, but I'd rather spend a day playing around with it.

Sames, I only tamed the beast that is Photoshop after taking Photography at college. Now I can't take any pictures of objects without playing around afterwards!

Here's my blog.
