We’ve been blessed with quite a few, wonderful Autumn days. The type of days when the air is crisp and clean, brilliant sunshine and bright colours. The maples look like they’re on fire when the sunlight hits their leaves. The fall foliage hasn’t reached its peak yet, but very close.
After seven years here in Saint John, I still marvel over how fortunate we are to have this beautiful park so handy.
As I was processing my photos yesterday, it struck me that I sure haven’t played around much in PhotoShop since I got it back! I use it every day, but only for the regular processing … no play. And as Google can add those, sometimes funny, effects, I should be able to do that myself. I used to, before.
So I added a dreamy effect to this little tug boat, and a discreet frame. I tested all kinds of grungy frames, but they just didn’t fit the image.
Tonight I’ve been checking out tutorials for other ways to add frames [there are many]. Found one, which I feel will be my preferred method … a layer mask. I find that nowadays, most tutorials are video. When I started making graphics in PaintShop they were mainly written, step-by-step which I actually preferred, but I’ll get used to video too.
