Photoshop Skills


Ever notice how, the first time you try something, you're completely in the dark, and then, after you keep struggling with it, you gradually make progress and actually learn? The older I get, the more I realize that it's not the 'try' but the 'try again' (and again and again) that leads to learning.

Took some of my sketches into photoshop and created line art from them, then messed around with 'coloring' them. I'm not there, yet, but I'm making some progress...

I'm having a big photoshop debate myself. It's not just the money it's the time to learn a whole new skill that's in such short supply!

I've had Photoshop for a very long time now and it just seems so complicated so I never even try. Between a day job and painting, I just can't justify the time to myself. Am I crazy?????? I'm afraid I'll just burn up every spare moment in front of my computer instead of in front of my easel.

Looks like you are having fun.
I wonder what I could do with Photoshop. It's so expensive. I want to be sure I have a need for it before I fork out all that dough.

I sure hope your dog comes home soon. did she have a collar with her name and number on it?
DH once went to a door to ask if the person had seen his dog who'd gone missing and the lady said NO, but DH HEARD HIS DOG TALKING IN THE BACK ROOM. so he demanded to be let in to GET HIS DOG, and he did. Good to have a talking dog.

After I read this I went over to google photoshop which seems to be more or less a grand! Yikes.

I'm thinking of just downloading the 'trial' but I'll still need that all elusive 'time.'

Cheers

Know what? That is exactly what I am learning these days...the importance of keeping at it in spite of early "failure." Just keep trying. It is paying off for me in yoga and in mindfulness.
