Photoshop Non-Disasters

Teachers have been lock-outed from schools due to a work conflict with the communal councils -- long story, for more details, see every Danish newspaper for the past month.
The consequence: No school for my daughter. Mrs. D. and I are sharing the joy and burden of looking after her with four other families from her class, so that once a week we have five girls in the house for home schooling (and general fun).

Today was my turn. Since we worked with telling stories (two weeks ago), I wanted to do something else today. That turned out to be Photoshopping, which turned out very well. The kids loved it. They posed for photos (with and without the cat) and were very keen on exploring the various effects in Photoshop Elements.

They also played around with paint, adding makeup, colorful shapes, and potted plants to the pictures. And of course I had to pose for a snapshot as well.

Yours truly. The picture never lies.

I tried Photo Shop way long ago. To me it was confusing. I have PaintShop Pro though. I know that both programs can share some of their functions. The effect you created just happens to be one I can do in PaintShop Pro.

If you're interested, I did the same effect for a photo on one of my posts at my blog -- http://www.glynisj.com/get-back-to-honesty/

That's a very expressive picture (for want of a better word - what I'm trying to say is that it shows a lot of character.)

I haven't picked a favorite photo program yet (PS Elements is only a trial version), so maybe I'll try PaintShop later. I know a lot of graphic/photography nerds, so I usually send stuff their way if it needs to be done professionally, but for home photography it might be worth a try. Most often, my photos just languish on the hard drive...

Jake,

PaintShop Pro is known for being more user friendly. Also, there's a site that provide excellent tutorials on how to do different things with photos, illustration, clip art, whatever.

Aww! Got to love creative little girls! I had a near-art experience today too, when I picked up my young-un in the kindergarten and overheard a new word: "Barbiebæsj" ("Barbie poo") XDDD

Well, Barbie's the last toy I'd have suspected of making poo... But of course, it's not always glitted magazines for her. Today's BoingBoing has her without the makeup:
