PSCS2....the greatest program ever invented!

I've been having to do all pp with Photoshop 5.5...it doesn't allow me to have actions since most of them are meant for 7.0 and above! And can I say OMG....actions are my new best friend! My time spent on the computer is going to be so much less....it's the BOMB! =) Here's a couple.....Gracie is being a goof, messing with her piggies. I just let her be and starting snapping away...I'll share some more later! =)





The b/w conversion is Robin Purcell's with just a tad of tweaking and the color one is Peta's wonderful color pop...LOVE it! =)

These are great... even better then buying actions is when you create your own from your usual workflow steps so that is all becomes one or two clicks of a button! Good luck, these are great.

Congrats!! CS2 is amazing. My favorite feature is Smart Sharpen. Sooo much better than USM.

And Bridge - definitely learn the Bridge.

You're going to do amazing things with this!

Love these shots of Gracie - for some reason she looks older in these..not sure why. But adorable as always!

Awwwwww very cute pictures of Gracie!

I have a huge favor to ask you.... if it isn't too difficult. How do you post other blog sites on your main page? Or websites that you love? I'd like to update mine, and thought that this would be something new to learn. If you can point me in any sort of direction, I would GREATLY appreciate it Brenda! THANX!!!!

Thank you everyone! It's so awesome..I still can't get over it! =)

Anne,
I haven't figured out smart sharpen yet...I may have to email ya on that one! I can't believe Tracie still hasn't downloaded hers yet.....we need to go over there and do it for her...she will be amazed! =)

Adrienne,
Email me at Bleann@msn.com and I'll tell ya how to do it. =)

Jen,
Yep....we are always a little behind in the times at our house! LOL!! =)

Amy,
She posted it on ILP (ilovephotography.com). If you haven't signed up..sign in and she posted it on the free side. Just do a search under her member name Peta M and go to her posts and she has it right there....it's awesome! =)

Thanks again everyone....I really appreciate all the wonderful comments! =)

These are really good. Your daughter is a doll and I love the natural feel that you get.

More important than any of the other questions - what brand are the panties? :) LOL - Bella and I have a constant battle because her panties are uncomfortable - I must own every brand out there because I keep thinking the next one I try will be the one that works!

Also - what vingette action did you use on that pic of Gracie with the wings? I've been looking for a good one.

Email me when you get a chance, I'm on a super slow dialup while on vacation and can't get blogs to load very well.

Smooch!
