Photoshop goes to the beach



This episode of Photoshop Playtime can all be blamed on Ann from SnapEditScrap. Ann adds texture to some of her photos and I always admire them.

 She emailed me the how to of adding texture and I  decided to create my own. I looked through my folders and saw Beaches. Now I like the above photo but not the sky. PLAYTIME BEGAN...


I cut the fence and plant, and put in front of photo below. YES! I do know the photo is fine without the fence, but the why of it all is PLAYTIME.


 Then I added it to the below photo



 Not tired of playing I added it to the above photo then created texture using the cut out fence. and none of these look anything at all like what Ann does.... must have gotten lost in PS Playland.....

This last one is VERY impressive!!! and I LOVE LOVE LOVE your outrageously cute header!!! I love any and all beach posts because we don't live near a beach and I have never seen one. O.K. one time when I was a tiny girl too little to remember.

I think the fence is quite cool. I always like to see the results of your playtime but even more so when it involves a beach. We've been inland for too long we need a trip to the coast. I need to feel sand between my toes.

You asked what we feed the foxes.
They have tinned dog food, some dog roll and 2 bits of chicken, plus a jam sandwich each night.
It depends who comes round first as to who gets the chicken and they nose around in the pile until they find it (chicken wings).
I always include a sandwich as its handy for putting the mange drops on if I spot any of them starting to get it, the drops quickly clear it up.
I wont tell you how much I spend, but its worth every penny just to watch them each night.

These photos are lovely, you do such great work with them. Unfortunately I had to delete my blog, as Paul had access to it. I might create a new one...maybe...
Have a great day!

I really like your Photoshop Playtime. You did a wonderful job with each of these. I need to find the time to play more with Photoshop.

Beautiful pictures of the beach. I think we all love beaches, no matter where they are. Who could not love the beach? You did a great job and I am sure had a lot of fun photoshopping...

Have a fun weekend!

SweetMarie said...

your header is so much fun! I can tell you had fun with these photos! I've got to try photoshop or something. I've never tried anything with my photos. I've got a lot to learn. Have a great Friday!

Chatty Crone said...

You know what - I love what you did - it made the picture much more attractive. But now I am thinking about photographs of things I see - are they true or are they played with? Love, sandie

Angela said...

You are getting way too good with that program girl! Next you'll be having a lizard riding on the back of Baby while Jake is dancing with a flower on his head! roflol And then we'll all think that it is a real picture! hehehe

photowannabe said...

Love what you did, Sandra.
You made a very simple photo more interesting and vivid.
Sometime I am going to get brave enough to attempt photoshop.

Deb said...

you are very talented Sandra...I sure wish I was on that beach with the sand between my toes...

DawnTreader said...

Well I'm glad Photoshop had a good time at the beach ;) I haven't had much time to "play" today but I did take some new photos AND I've got a new bigger extra screen connected to my laptop so I can see better!

Andrew said...

Dull, grey skies and wet over here.. I want to sit on a sunny beach.. :-) xx

LC said...

Kudos. Your platime ramped up the drama!

Snapper II said...

I see MC already did a post and did not sign her name to my Blog.

You are amazing with Photo Shop. I love the snappy headers you've been putting up.

Ann said...

This isn't the first time I've been blamed for being an instigator :)
You did great with these and now I'm jealous because I want to be on that beach taking pictures.

Jane said...

I am so glad you get lost with technology like I do, and allow yourself to PLAY. These are wonderful photos of the beach.

Deborah said...

OMG, AWESOME!!! I love your header too. I want to go the beach.

Thanks for visiting me. Your a good blogger friend :)

xxoo

Cranberry Morning said...

That does sound like fun! It's incredible what can be done with photo editing now. I suppose I should open my book and learn some of it. lol

Found you on Chatty Crone's blog. :-)

SD ~ Dawning Inspiration said...

You go girl! Love the fun you have... wish you were closer so I could learn with you!

Michaele said...

I am so impressed! It's like bringing out the artist in yourself. What fun.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Amazing work and pictures. This makes me want to play with Photoshop as well. Now if only I could find the free time to do that.

Kathy said...

I'd love to learn how to do these things. So far I've been unteachable. Just haven't had the right teacher I suppose!

BlueShell said...

have a big hug,

Catherine said...

Photoshop is a very fun program isn't it? So many things to try...so little time.

Have a happy Saturday Sandra!

WOW! Now that is playtime. I think it's time to learn something new.,time to try photoshop.

Debra Dickinson said...

Oh I wish I could sit at yours and Ann's feet and learn. I love this stuff! I keep laying my hands on the screen but evidently learning through osmosis doesn't work either! LOL!
