    Photoshop

    Ok, so a friend of mine just gave me a copy of photoshop 7. I have no idea where to even begin with it! How did you guys learn how to use it?

    I think there’s a tutorial on there, that’s a start.

    It is complicated. U can also buy books. Some people go to classes on how to use it. I learned various stuff from my ex-wife - she had to use it for work.

    Just start pushing buttons... Experience is the best teacher. I first started using Photoshop back with version 4.0 and have never taken any classes for it. I now use version 8.0 (Adobe CS). It's one of my favorite programs ever! Very, very powerful tool.

    No, do what I did - Marry someone who knows how to use the program - have them teach you... Then get a divorce

    I've been using PS Elements 3 for a while. I taught myself and read a lot online. I hope to upgrade soon to 7 or CS.

    Here's a start.

    Life would not be complete without a photoshop contest. The image at the top is the original and the following images are shopped. Some of them are great. Disclaimer: NSFW means Not Safe For Work. Don't go there. (At least they warn you, all others are mostly rated G)

    Today’s FARK photoshop contests:

    Jellyfish
    Shipboard Shave
    Poppet on a swing
    Memphis cheerleader

    I used to enter these things back when I had lots of spare time. There are usually one or two contests a day, but on Fridays several pop up. Enjoy!

    My avitar was done on PSE3. Here are some more I’ve done for fun.
    My son before.


    My son after. Enhanced a little. I gave him a tattoo.


    My daughter. She’d kill me if she knew I was posting this. I roughly cut her ex boyfriend out of the pic.


    A good friend. She is really quit pretty in real life... and single guys.


    My daughter and mother-in-law.
