One might think that the cold winter months would lend themselves to things like blogging, but in my case I find the winter vacillating between an overabundance of events and an overwhelming desire to hide beneath the covers with a book until the sun comes back out. Today, the sun has returned! My Irish skin glows like the moon in a blinding reflection.
I just upgraded to the most current Photoshop software -CS5. Until now, I've done most of my photo editing in Lightroom (which is, IMO, the bomb) and some bits I edited in Photoshop Elements. Between the two most everything I NEED was covered, but, man alive, the things I didn't know I wanted! I'm still busy exploring all the tools but my favorites so far are HDR toning adjustments, puppet warp, content aware fill, mixer brush tool, and the new way the eyedropper works -seriously fun and awesome. Puppet warp seriously blows my freaking mind! I don't know how often I will actually use these but the software was an amazing deal since a new version is due out soon. I look forward to sharing some experiments and making you all my little puppets:)
Get out and enjoy the sun if you've got it!
