Most people know I like to follow. If I see something I like, I am going to copy it. That is why when Melanie at Four Squares starting playing with her Photo Shop Elements 6, well…I had to follow. I even copied her title to the post.
I went into PSE and just started pushing buttons. I have no idea how Melanie changed her photos. As soon as she squeals and gives up the secret, I plan on trying it out with this photo.
Here is the original. Yes, I copied her subject matter. Problem?
And here are several pictures after clicking some buttons. Don’t ask me what I did, because I don’t have a clue.
I kinda like the last two the best. They are not as wonderful as Melanie’s.
I’ll be playing around with the Photoshop again; after all, there are lots of buttons I haven’t used yet.
Since I like to copy/follow, I have decided to use Melanie as my children’s art teacher next year. Melanie doesn’t know about this yet, so keep the secret for me. I don’t want her to get a big head or think I am some kind of wacko groupie or anything. It could cause problems between us.
Updated to add:
I contacted the Square Lady and threatened begged her to tell me the secret to her fancy-schamcy photo. She caved in and told me. Turns out all she does is push buttons too. And I thought she had some kind of innate ability to work PSE6. I might have to rethink copying her art work for my kids.
Here’s my new photo using the same fluorescent chalk secret button that Melanie did.
Ok, so mine isn’t nearly as pretty as Melanie’s, but MINE has MORE Pink Flamingos in it. Yeah! So there!
