Playing with Photoshop

I got a new version of Photoshop and now I can finally play with all the downloadable actions available like the rest of the world!! I looked through some of my pics and just picked these randomly to start playing with. I don't think I would have ever had the patience to do all of this in the darkroom--I'm glad I got in on the digital age and it can all be done sitting in front of the computer! (By the way, all the actions I used on these were downloaded from The Pioneer Woman's site).

"Seventies" action with a little boost on color:

"Vintage" action with a slight reduction in opacity:


"PW's Black and White" action:

"Soft and Faded" action with "Boost" and a slight reduction in opacity:

"Lovely and Ethereal" with "Define and Sharpen:"

I'm getting braver and braver with my camera and editing skills these days. It will be interesting to see if I can get considerably better over the next year! (A big thanks to my friend Rhonda for her help these days!)
