Trials and Tribulations of Photoshop

How to tell if a picture has been photo shopped...
A red sky.
OK...that tutorial worked!
But red??? I have no idea how I even did this???
sheesh...!
So this is a sunset from my photo shop program???
 what the...???
One thing I'm learning, is to tell when others have used photoshop...
My failures are so funny!!!
I sit and work on a pic with so much intensity...then when it's done, most of the time I just burst out laughing.
Hahaha...gotta keep a sense of humor or I'd go nuts!
ommmm

Big applause for even attempting to do this stuff. What you did looked great to me.

What did the picture with the red sky look like before?

I got a book to learn more, which made it more complicated. I am one of those who don't like reading directions. I gave my computer, book and programing to one of my kids and never went back to it. I toss a lot out to get a nice shot.

I know what you mean! But it's fun to play around with the images, isn't it? Sometimes an image that was not too bad becomes a WOW photo after it's been post processed in an image editor.

Kittie, It's a hoot!!! I really struggle with it. I like orig pics, but sometimes just a tweak here or there might be just the thing that's needed.

Fly...Both pics had that whitish gray haze color that I get so often. ewwwww...

Steve, Ooh I've got that book "Photo Shop for Dummies"...hahaha!!! I still don't get it.

Martha, I have some photo's I'll post next that have been tweaked. I like doing it! I have some friends (real artists) that really do some incredible stuff with their photos. Underwater scenes, flying...all sorts of stuff.

I wish To learn but photoshop looks complicated so I put it off !

turquoisemoon said...

Wong Ching Wah, Your photos are so beautiful. I don't think I'd even bother. And...I think it is complicated.

I tried erasing a wrinkle or three and found I looked better with the wrinkles than without a chin or neck.... so

It may be photoshoped but I would hang it on my wall in an instant. Makes me want to monkey around.
