. . . I learned a new skill and have a new 'time-consuming' love. I finally took the time (yeah, I know the things that I SHOULD be doing but what the heck - I am the STAR of putting off doing the things I SHOULD be doing!) and figured out how to load 'actions' to Photoshop Elements. Why did I wait so long to do this? Because technology is not always my friend and I seem to create more computer glitches with my downloads than those that actually work. But this was one of my successes! All the time I have spent editing photos one layer at a time and now all it takes is one click to achieve perfect results!
This is my photo of an abandoned truck straight out of the camera.
Pioneer Woman's 'soft and faded' action. All actions used are free for the taking so go and take!
The CoffeeShop blog 'vintage blush'. Oodles and oodles of actions can be found here. With tutorials! Gotta love that!
PW 'black & white'.
I'm always amazed at the creativity, talent and generosity of fellow PSE users. And I'm constantly amazed how PSE can transform even my very unprofessional photos into pictures I'm not embarrassed to show.
My daughter has asked me to create a 'blurb' book with their engagement photos as a guest book for their wedding. We are even going to be doing a photoshoot and I am taking the photos! Brave, brave, naive couple! Not to worry, they will also have professional photos taken but not those cute ones that are all over the wedding blogs. Those are my job! Wish me luck and if you have ever done a 'blurb' wedding guest book, I'd appreciate any tips!
Better get back to my Photoshop practice!
Now, which truck would you like to ride in the parade?
