Editing

I have been working in baby steps to learn some editing in Photoshop.  There is so much to do to a photo in Photoshop.  I know photographers that say they will never learn it all.  So dive in and get your feet wet, with a small bit of skill you can create some amazing results.   This photo was given a final edit by adjusting the levels in Photoshop and applying a layer of texture under multiply at 100%.


This was the before edit that I created in Picasa.  I am more comfortable working in Picasa so, I start with my photo there and then move over to Photoshop if I want to do more editing.

This photo with the final edit in Photoshop.  I applied a layer of texture under multiply at 40%, and before that I adjusted the levels to white it out a bit.

Here the photo before edited in Picasa.

And, last this photo also had a final edit in Photoshop.  I adjusted the levels and then applied a layer of texture at 100%.

Here the photo was before, edited in Picasa.  The texture used was Silence by Kim Klassen.
I am trying to get more skilled at the editing to create art with my photography.  It is a lot of fun, even learning in baby steps.
