Photoshop Fun

I have been having a little fun playing with Photoshop Elements.
Here are some of the results.

Some of the flowers sent to me by a friend.
A frame around them just brings their beauty.

Here is another picture of the frost covered branches.

Yet another frost picture.I guess I need to get out and do some more shooting.
I need some new images to work with.

My son just recently installed Photoshop CS5,on my computer.Now I have more learning to do.

Thought for today:
Today appreciate the beauty surrounding you,
and you'll recognize that God is here,there and everywhere.

  4. I think the last one is my favorite. You will have to let me know how you like it. My DIL is looking for a good program. Now you need to get snapping and play!! And you have a ready made audience!

  5. We're staying put after our blizzard! Those roses are just so beautiful and bring a little sunshine into this snow-filled wonder we live in! Love your sugar coated trees! Have fun with your new photoshop!

  6. Hello Ruth,

    Lovely photos as always. Perhaps I should try it, photoshop that is.

    I hope you have had a wonderful week.

  7. Oh I haven't even tackled it, whenever I do I just get frustrated . It did make those photos look good though. That is a great quote and so true.

  8. I like it! I don't have Photoshop, but I do have Paint Shop Pro. Don't really know which one is the best.

  9. Your lovely images remind me that I have so much to learn with photoshop and my Macbook Air and I find that lately I have become rather a slow learner.

    Have a wonderful week my friend with lots of photo opportunities.

  10. I echo what Country Mouse Studio said! I only have PS Elements 6 and still haven't learned to do very much with it. I hate reading manuals and such! What I need is a real live person to stand over my shoulder and give me a few lessons ☺
    Your pictures are great and I like what you've done with them!

  11. The frames really accentuate the beauty of your photos.

  12. Ruth that Hoar Frost is just amazing to me, so beautiful!
    I can't wait to see what you begin to create with your new version of photoshop!

    I have been feeling the same way about needing new pictures. It can be hard this time of year - especially when there hasn't been a fresh snow - and everything looks dingy and dirty.

    Hope you have a good week ahead!
    Be careful driving that bus in this winter weather!

  13. That looks like fun Ruth. The frames just make the pictures more beautiful I think. Is it hard? Diane

  15. I see you managed to get those creative juices flowing! Lookin' good. I have an old, old version of photoshop that I've never really learned how to use. One day, I keep telling myself.

  16. Good job in Photoshop! I just installed Photoshop Elements 9 on my iMac (got it for Christmas). Haven't even fully explored it yet. The Rose bouquet is gorgeous.

  18. I like the frames you've created for these beautiful photos. You've done a wonderful job with Photoshop Elements, and I expect it won't be long before you're doing even more wonderful things with Photoshop CS5.

  19. Gorgeous, Ruth... George now has the PhotoShop CS5.. He has been learning it off and on for a few months. I am still using Elements and am happy with it...

    Love your photos.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  20. Ruth, wonderful shots. The Elements add ons really accentuate the pictures.
    I think you'll have fun with CS5. It does some pretty amazing things. Wish I had it!

  23. Beautiful Picture's Ruth! We have Photoshop Elements 6, (pretty dated already), and as it is, I can barely understand how to use that. Good for you that you can figure out all these fancy programs!

    ReplyDelete
  24. CS5?? That is expensive and very complicated. It will do about anything you want to do IF you know how to use it.

    Your pictures are beautiful. I look forward to seeing some of your creative work with CS5.

  25. The rose photo is lovely and the pine tree branches with snow are fresh looking. It looks like you are learning Photoshop well.

  26. Those pictures look great Ruth. And you are doing so well with photoshop. I am still trying to learn but I am afraid I don't have enough patience.

  27. Love your photos. I played around with elements 9 and now, I must have photoshop!

  28. I have been spending way too much time in Photoshop. And almost none of it gets published on my blogs. I did the "trinity" today and that took almost all day. It is a mix of watercolors and hair blower.

  29. I downloaded a trial version of Photoshop Elements and could not get into it at all. Your editing is beautiful.

  30. Ruth the images are stunning as are the ones on your previous post!I am living in the desert but winter scenes are a comfort to view..reminding me of what I left behind.
    Photo shop is wonderful and time consuming and I just need to allow more time to just play and learn
    hugs love and light Anna

  32. Your photos are so beautiful, Ruth!
    My parents visited over Christmas and since they've always loved art and were art school graduates, I showed them your blog and they really enjoyed your pictures, too. Thanks for sharing all this beauty with us. God bless you.
