Good morning from a sunny Hastings this morning.
I am so excited that I have learnt a quick and easy way of doing digital embellishments. I have spent the past week working on Photoshop and Preview trying to find a quick and easy way of doing them. I would do one but then I would forget to how I did it so it was basically back to square one again. Then late Friday night I suddenly clicked – in other words I clicked on the right icon and it was then soooooo easy. So then I spent the weekend doing embellishments. I use a mac but I would imagine Windows is very similar.
I asked my son how to video it and he showed me how to use screen capture to film what I was doing on screen and voila. I had a video, which I then uploaded to YouTube.
This is the embellishment I did with the video.
And this is the finished result. The background, photo and embellishment are all from the same photo.
Here are some of the other embellishments I did over the weekend. I did found out that a good mouse and mouse pad is essential. My son has promised to get me a good mousepad for Christmas – so that he can get his one back. I ultimate wish is a drawing pad. Sigh.
I found that having a distinct outline of the image makes it a lot easier to trace around, whether freehand or using the magic wand.
So have fun trying this out. I am.
Cheers and have a nice day.
