Wordful Wednesday-Photoshop

*Wordful Wednesday is for those of us that like to showcase a photo(s) but that just can’t seem keep our mouths shut about it(them). If you’d like to play along, post a photo on your blog, and let the words roll. Feel free to “capture” my 7 Clown Circus button on the left to link back to me, and be sure to add yourself to Mr. Linky. Thanks for playing along!

I scored Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 for Christmas but am just getting around to playing around with it. I’m already part-way in love. Just wait until I can navigate around the software quickly. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a full-blown-love-affair.
This photo was manipulated using the Cutout effects element. So cool.

    Cool photo effects but it doesn’t look like it needed much added elements! I cannot wait to see what else you do with APE 7.

    very nice. I love playing with photoshop!! I got Adobe CS3 from a friend this past fall (with Photoshop) and am in love with it again – I have to start playing more (I have posted some of my experiments in my photo blog if you are curious).

    Have fun with Elements!!

    What a cool effect!
    To be honest photoshop scares me. I am so intimidated by it, but would love to learn how to use different effects. I guess I just need to find some time to play around with it πŸ™‚

    That is AWESOME! I had it once and was semi-lost LOL I did ok with those tutorials you find, but I never grasped doing things on my own. Someday soon I hope to attain it again and learn. That and a new camera πŸ™‚

    Live.Love.Eat says

    P.S. I have to bow out of WW this week since I am still playing catch up from yesterday and the days before. Gosh, I am not supposed to be busier now than when I was working.

    So cool! I just got Photoshop Elements 6 and I SO NEED some help! LOL Right now its all trial and error but still so much fun!

  31. 65

    Jenners says

    Wow! This is too cool! I have an old version of Photoshop but find it so hard to use. Maybe Elements is a little bit more user-friendly. This is such a cool way to enhance your photos! I love it!

  32. 66

    Steph at Problem Solvin' Mom says

    What a great effect! I am in the market for a good photo editing software, but I’m so indecisive!

  33. 67

    Heather @ Not a DIY Life says

    Wow! That’s awesome! I have photoshop too and have had some good results. But I have to admit that they were accidents. I have NO CLUE what I’m doing!

    Happy WW!

    Deb says

    what the heck??? that is SO cool! will it print out like that? it looks like actual art (and it helps that your subject is absolutely adorable)!!

  35. 69

    Sera says

    I love that. It would look awesome blown up real big for a wall in your house. I’m still intimidated by Photoshop. I need a Photoshop for Dummies book. πŸ™‚

    Lee of MWOB says

    Looks awesome and I’m learning I need to be better prepared for your wordful wednesdays – I’m always so late in the game!! Well, I AM on the west coast after all.

    If you have a moment, stop by my photographic experiment today….

    Pamela says

    What a cutie pie! Nice effects, too. I’m figuring out how to use Elements, too, and it’s pretty darn cool!

  38. 77

    Sarah says

    That’s precisely why I’ve avoided Photoshop to this point, another addiction is just what I don’t need. But it looks like so much fun! Love the photo.

    I so need to get around to playing with PhotoShop…so many cool things to do. Love the photo, almost looks like an oil on canvas.

  43. 84

    Lindsay says

    I have PE6 myself and have had NO time to learn it yet. It is VERY cool….however it makes me SO irritated that nothing (software-wise) comes with an instruction manual anymore! Grrr.

  44. 86

    Amy says

    Thanks for Wordful Wednesday! This is the first time I’ve participated, and while I didn’t do anything Photoshopped or fancy, I said what I wanted to say about my pic. Awesome idea!

  45. 89

    ChefDruck says

    Really amazing what you can do with photoshop. Just wish I could figure out those layers! Really neat picture.

  46. 90

    Keri says

    Okay, so I’m totally jealous! I only wish I had photoshop. Or maybe it’s a good thing I don’t. I probably would get addicted and not get anything else done. Yup.

    Glad to see you’re experimenting. Very nice!!

  47. 92

    DysFUNctional Mom says

    I love it! I got creative with effects this week too, but I’m just a poor,lowly photobucket user.

  48. 94

    My name is Tammie says

    OK, we need to get you new pictures. LOL. Lens is back, when do you want to schedule? πŸ˜€

  49. 98

    Stephanie says

    I’ve always thought I’d like to have photoshop, but don’t know if I’d ever find time to figure it out! Can’t wait to see what all you come up with πŸ™‚

  50. 101

    Michelle says

    I have been so distracted lately that I put up my link without leaving a comment (how rude of me).

    I love photo editing. I don’t think I have posted a single shot without doing something to it.

    I have a friend who has an unused copy of the real photoshop that she doesn’t need and is going to give to me. I can’t wait.
