photoshop


All I want for Christmas is a Photoshop, a Photoshop, a Photoshop...
I used to be a purist. No doctoring photos for me. If they didn't come out right, well, then, I must not have taken a very good picture. And I got pretty good at taking good pictures for a while--then my camera got squished by a car (David got me a really nice one after that, but even with zoom, I missed the bond my old camera that I had and I feel like I didn't take as good of pictures). I used to refuse to get a digital. I didn't want those dots all over my pictures--then all the photo developing places when digital, so I had the dots anyway. Now, I have a digital camera that I use all the time and I am asking Santa for a Photoshop. What has become of me?
Ok, well, there is a small part of the purist left in me. I have really started to hate using a flash. So, here's a picture of Aubie using just light from the blue windows in the nursery the other day. I just love the color and the shading. Now, if only I could get my model to smile...

Have you heard of GIMP? It is free and I like it as much as Photoshop. Actually, I like it more for most things. It's not as obvious to figure out as Photoshop but it is worth figuring out. =) Google it and you can download it free.

Thanks, Kate! I will have to try that.

Also, there's always Photoshop Elements. It has a lot of the major features that full photoshop has, and it's a heck of a lot cheaper.
