This weekend I finally settled down with a book from the library on Adobe Photoshop Elements 7. Actually, I checked out 5 different books, and found the one I liked best before I jumped into buying one. Now I've found the one I have to have. I've had the program for months, and fiddled with it a little, but it's not intuitive. You NEED a book to understand everything, plus there are so many steps you need a reference to use again and again, because you'll never remember them all, at least I won't.
Below are a few pictures of my nephew that I played with in photoshop. Yup, it's official, I'm addicted. Enjoy!
Original (or as I've seen several photographers refer to as SOOC-straight out of camera)
Edit #2 (softer)
Ah, now that's my little angel, ah, I mean man. :)
