I love Photoshop.
Really I am a huge fan of it.
Working with it for ages.
When I first started I could hardly align a picture.
Yeah that’s not to difficult, but in fact that was all I was able to do with Photoshop. And to erase pixels that shouldn’t be there.
Hard to believe, right?
I took my chance, got classes in Photoshop – cool teacher I got. 🙂
He told me that he could only teach us about 20% of the power of Photoshop.
Imagine: 20% in a 160 hours course.
Then I got the advice to practice and practice and practice.
It is all about doing, working with it, experimenting.
Since these days I am addicted to Photoshop and to tutorials.
So now and then I adopt a tutorial and follow the steps – like a recipe for a wonderful pasta sauce.
And like following a recipe I also start while working with the tutorial to change it a bit.
Choosing a different color, taking a different photo, establishing a different idea.
The avatars in the photo above are results of such tutorial tweaking.
Offered a whole new world for me.
You get ideas how to do it.
Maybe by the moment I hold 50% of the powers of Photoshop in my hand?
