I'm sure a few of you have some sort of program, probably photoshop, to alter your pictures into some kind of work of art . . . . . if so, throw some examples into this thread.

Keeper in the forest on a foggy day . . . . with a metallic effect:

Keeper in the field, listening for mice . . . watercolour

Polly's world, a new day dawns, watercolour . . .

Noble Abby, chalk and charcoal, on a windy day

Ooo meb taught me how to do the eyes today! (I'm a ps novice)

Yey! :highfive: Great thread!

April 17th, 2007, 08:58 PM
Prin, how do you do eyes? (I am a PS Super novice. and by super I don't mean skilled)

April 17th, 2007, 09:07 PM
Really? I thought I'd get laughed out of this thread for just doing eyes.:D

Ok, ok.. I put it in point form in word, so I could remember...

Ok, so do you know how to make a color pic black and white? That helps...

To select:
Lasso 1 selection (set feather at top higher for blurred edges so you can be less precise.. (I used 30))
To select a second thingy: shift + select with the lasso

(what I did though was I did one eye starting with the inner corner, didn't let go and went over and did the second eye. :shrug: )

To reverse selection:
Select inverse (selects rest of image)

Then to make the inverse selection (i.e. rest of image) black and white, you go into Image - adjustment - desaturate

Is that clear enough? :o Select and image are in the menus at the top beside "file"... :o

April 17th, 2007, 09:11 PM
Oh that's awesome! Thanks! I suck at photoshop, and got too busy to actually learn to do anything.

April 17th, 2007, 09:14 PM
Yeah, I know what you mean.. If I'm not shown, I have a hard time learning it on my own...:o

Just to give her more credit: I learned it from Meb! :D :highfive:

April 17th, 2007, 09:36 PM
I got that on my camera, where you can select one color then take the picture in B&W and only the color you selected shows up. Very cool.

Gorgeous pics everyone, love the saran wrappy one lol and the charcoal....such a creative bunch we have!

April 17th, 2007, 09:36 PM
Puppyluv you scared the crap out of me with that pic! :p

Ooohh, I wish I had ps, I would love to do the eye thing! :sad:

April 17th, 2007, 09:43 PM
lol Byrd! They had a thread like 2 years ago where everybody did it and I didn't know they were using photoshop.. It took me like an hour to do it with paint.:D I just got photoshop a couple months ago...:o

Wait! I think I still have them...

I have Photoshop, possibly on my old computer, but never use it. Concentrated on Paint Shop Pro instead.

Wow Rik, those are very cool. I may just have to learn to play with photo shop. Maybe some of my crappy pics could "turn" good!

Great pics! :D it makes me want to go back to playing with Photoshop, I used to spend my weekends and nights with it and Maya... and now I don't do much of anything lol, even my camera seems to be collecting dust :( so sad... I really like the picture of Paco coming out of the screen.
