Another try!


I am having fun working with the Photoshop elements. I put the iPod on, and just get down to it. I fool, undo, redo, adjust,etc. It's kind of relaxing! I probably only know about half a percent of the total there is to know about PSE 6, but I am plugging along. This is one I did last night, of my new nephew Zeb, and my grandmother. She lives in a nursing home, adjoining the hospital that Zeb was born in. The day after he was born, my Mom and I walked over to the home and wheeled Grandma Omi back over to the hospital to meet her newest great grandson. He was kind of fussy, but as soon as she took him, he calmed right down and looked up at her. She pulled him close and buried her head in his little neck, and thankfully I got a photo! We were all pretty choked up! He was named Zebulon Russell, the Russell for Omi's late husband, my Grandfather. Omi can't talk due to her stroke, only yes's, no's, and oh's for the most part. When we went and picked her up at the nursing home, I got down on my knees in front of her and told her why we were there, and told her what my brother and sister in law had named the baby. Grandma was overjoyed-even though she couldn't express her feelings verbally, I knew exactly what she was saying! It was a great day!
Happy Tuesday evening!

Very fun! I need to teach myself how to use my photoshop more. I would love to digital scrap, but I am unlearned!

Wonderful photo and wonderful story!! I am still tryng to learn PSE6 too. I think it would take days and days find out everything it can do. If you ever learn how to incorporate actions into your photos, let me know. That is something I really want to do, but just have not had the time to investigate well.

Love it! Your really doing well with these brushes! I've not tried PSE, just the regular Adobe PhotoShop 6...what a headache it gives me!
