DQ, jy's 'n doring! (You're a champ!)

I have been working through your tuts for the last week or so and it is great to follow tips from someone that has the same objectives as I have. I got very frustrated with other CS tuts because they take you through EVERYTHING and loose you along the way.

Thanks for helping to revive my intrest in CS with your to-the-point and very acurate guidance. I doff my hat to you, Sir!

Pop? As in looking flashy?

I would say with a border, say with Bordermaker. Maybe I'm a bit of a purist, but I do not like oversaturated (and such) photos. Much prefer the photos as is...

Can you tell me which photoshop is best. Photoshop CS3, Photoshop CS3 Extended or Lightroom? I saw that DQ is using Lightroom and there is a huge price difference between the 3. Also where is the best place to buy it from?

Messing with the waterhole
This is about messing with pics from the waterhole, and may give you insights about selecting parts of photo's, working with layers, and resizing photo's. If you want to mess with a waterhole picture, read this.


More tutorials will follow, but give me some time to write them :lol:


Hi,

I seem to remember having seen this before. Was a lesson on how to put a hut next to a waterhole. The link though doesn't seem to work anymore. Can someone point me in the right direction.

Thanks
Yoda

That one died.... The example photos were on my server, but that server had such a nasty crash that my provider could not even restore a backup. :wall:

It's not difficult though. Just select the 'thing' you want to insert into a photo. Preferably make sure it's at the same resolution as the photo you're going to put it into, or it'll be very visible.
Paste it into a new document in Photoshop, and clean up the edges. Resize if need be, copy, and paste into your photo. Then you can move it to where you want it.

This is a 3 minute explanation of why the wild dog looked so amazed at Orpen:

Question on Photoshop: I got Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 and want to know if the functionality exist to resize your photos say from 2 MB to 800B?
If not, what alternative can I explore as want to enter some pic into competition. :hmz:

I have a few tricks i do before i go into photoshop to do the final level adjustments etc that makes for some crystal clear pictures, thought i'd mention them, maybe someone can use it. I do mostly portraiture but itnreallyndoes something for any pictures, even landscape or wildlife.

Before i head to photoshop itself i open the raw images in adobe camerw raw. Free download if you have photoshop as it sits inside photoshop.

In there i fix colour, then th efollowing settings makes for the "pop"

In the first general tab, i set vibrance +10 and clarity+10
then on the sharpening tab i use the setting to sharpen with +25 but mask it at 65 it will make sure the sharpening is very subtle and doesnt make hair look like grass.

Then i edit in photoshop and at the end for print i will sharpen at unsharp mask 75,2,3 for web i sharpen to much more.
