So at last after many a moon struggling with Photoshop and not even being able to cope with "Photoshop For Dummies" (I have to admit to not even being bright enough to class myself as a dummy) I have now been able to start to get to grips with it. I have a new book. Another package from Amazon full of promise! "Digital Expressions" by Susan Tuttle.
At last I can do things I want rather than having happy (and sad) accidents with my photos!
This lovely parrot was in a cage in Stafford's Botanical Gardens. He was tying to look very menacing whilst eating a piece of maize.
The budgies below had a distracting background on my photo but I managed to "pop" the colour out of the background reasonably succesfully.
But now for my piece of resistance!
How exciting!! I am now in charge of Photoshop...and my life is complete.
