Learning Photoshop

I recently downloaded the trial version of Photoshop 7 and am entering a whole new world. Total beginner but am amazed at what you can do with your photos with special effects. I used inverted layers for this photo of a garden fairy I took recently.
This is a collage I made with about 4 different photos , one as a background and then added cropped and altered images from other photos.

This is a photo I took of my son Aaron (on sax) and his bandmates playing outside a cafe in which I added a fresco mode, which gave it an impressionist poster-like appearance. I'm afraid I may need a course in "Layers" to try to understand it all but this medium is endless.


  1. Thank you so much for your kind words regarding my article in Digital Studio. The work you posted here is fabulous! You are right; the medium is endless and it is so much fun to explore. : D

  2. You have got some great effects with your pictures. I have photoshop but am not at all confident in using it. I should do a class I think! Thanks for inspiring me!
