Playing With Photoshop

I recently got photoshop and I've been playing around in it a bit. It's hard to figure out! Here's my photo from today for my 365 blog.

I wasn't too thrilled with the straight out of the camera version, so I attempted to do some actions on it in Photoshop. Here's a few of the edits.

My real problem is that even if I figure out how to use Photoshop properly, how do I know what the best way to edit it is? I'm just going to end up with 5 different photos of each photo. So... that's like 1000 pictures on heavy picture day... :) I think I'll just have to do one photo every once in a while.

Anyone have any tips on learning photoshop? Great websites or books?? Thanks!

  1. I have photoshop but I don't really use it for actions. I'll use it for cloning and resizing. I use Lightroom more for editting and applying presets (actions) to my photos. I really like that first edit though. She's such a cutie!

  2. I have photoshop but I don't use it for editing. Maybe if I had a better camera then I would do more photo editing. I tried and could not get the hang of it. When ever I want to do something in photo shop I google it and get a ton of good sites with step by step instructions.

    The first edit came out really good. The colors popped in that one. It doesn't hurt that you have such a cute little model!
