As anyone who is looking to improve their photography, will at some stage came to the cross road, where you have to decide,
how and what to use to edit your images.
After much reading as there are hundreds of programmes out there, some free, some mega expensive. What offers you what.
I chose the Adobe Photoshop brand, there are many versions, and different programmes, but I am a big believer in buying what you can to try and limit the need to upgrade at a later stage. So I went for Photoshop CS4 and im over the moon.
Well, I say over the moon lightly, its more frightened feeling to be honest, you sit there download the programme and it opens, oh my!
Now what do I do?
There are a million of settings, boxes, tools....
hmmm I think a book is going to be needed for this or a Degree course Ha!.
I would strongly recommend downloading Podcasts, they are free and offer some fantastic tuition,
if not there are various magazines out there, books all sorts on the photoshop software.
Here are a couple of pictures of me playing about on Photoshop, i took the first image trying to be smart and have a photo of lots of me, but that evening out in a bar, a mate suggested a picture of trying to give yourself a head lock...
Aaaarrrgghhhh,, you cant throw a curve ball at me like that!
and so hung over the next morning, all i could think about was to try and create this shot,
and so here is me - giving myself a head lock :0)
