Quick Mask Lesson Result

Here is the before picture:
And here is the after picture:
Following Sue O'Kieffe's tutorial on Photoshop Quick Mask, I produced this beautiful image which is what I "saw" when I took the terrible before picture. I continue to be amazed and in awe of what I can do with Photoshop and a few good lessons. So give the tutorial a try and see what you can do. They are very easy to follow and even I, who tends to scan instead of read, can follow them.

I also completed Sue's Crop Tool tutorial which was most helpful in creating a mat around the photo.
et voila:

I very much appreciate Sue taking her valuable time to create these tutorials for anyone (me) to use. It has helped me with some areas that weren't exactly intuitive in the software. The layers, the masks, etc. I can't wait for next Sunday's post. Thank you, Sue!

Good job, Bobbie. You are becoming quite masterly. I see you didn't announce on your blog that you got the Nice Matters Award. Are you being shy about it? Or did I miss that part?

Bobbie said...

I'm very proud of the Nice Matters Award and will be announcing it soon.

So pretty, what a clever lady. Looking forward to trying out the Quick mask myself, it looks so good and Sue makes it seems so straightforward

Wonderful! Your use of that technique took a nice picture and made it into a wonderful picture.

Sayyyyy, what are those flowers? Are they on your place? You must show me next time I'm there.

Okay Okay, so now I have to go to Sue O'Kieffe's blog. I am so impressed with all that you have learned and am quite jealous since I am so far behind.

They look a bit little tiny bluebells. They could be little fairy bells in a dingly dell and they have a magical glow - I don't know whether that has anything to do with the paint effects you use.
