I love Photoshop. It has to be one of the most wonderful programs on the face of any computer. Too bad I don't know how to use it. I've had the program for several years now, and the most I've done with it is crop photos and fix the exposure, but now I want to learn more.
Pinterest that they were showing up all over the web. (Even on a Google search.) So I learned to add a copyright (big wow), not that I was ever going to go after someone for using them--I just wanted people to know where it/they came from.
Evelyn David (and if you don't know her work, she writes (of all things) mysteries!).
But I want to be able to do more. I've been watching tutorials on my computer, but even the ones for dummies take a lot of short cuts. Excuse me, I'm trying to learn the basics and in it the guy says "just do a control D deselect" at 60 mph. You blink and whatever he just did is gone and you have to go back and listen/watch two more times before you know what just happened. So it's been slow. Too bad Evelyn doesn't live down the road (I believe she's in Oklahoma) to give me a few lessons. So, I'm on my own.
I figure I'll eventually learn enough to do stuff like this, which Mr. L did for me (although not in Photoshop. He's an Adobe Illustrator wiz--there are seven elements in the graphic below) and I'd probably be pretty happy.
Anybody got any good (EASY) Photoshop tips? Do you like to see these types of graphics?
