Share-sies...

As you may have noticed, lately I have been playing a bit with PhotoShop, which I *love*. I am a big fan of the Adobe Creative Suite and was first introduced to it some years ago. As a Technical Writer... I found it to be an invaluable tool of the trade, creating manuals and quick reference guides. Only recently have I been able to dabble in the fun (un-work) related side to the package, and I am having a ball. I am in no way an expert by any stretch of the definition {or imagination :-)}. Fortunately for me, most of the enjoyment is in the learning, which is such a good thing as there is SO MUCH to learn. I have done an evening course for InDesign, but mainly I am self or on-the-job taught.

A few finds I thought to share as you may find useful also:
Action Central - has a VAST and WIDE variety of actions and tutorials for FREE (and we like free :))

Of particular interest to me was this tutorial on CREATING ACTIONS... I am yet to give it a go, but its on my list of things to do!

PhotoShop Support... lots of kewl stuff here too!

I recently purchased these gems... Itty Bitty Actions (borders) by the talented JinkyArt. LOVE LOVE LOVE them! Seriously yummy stuff. REALLY love her colour popping actions too. Much!

I am hoping to upgrade from CS2 to CS3 veeeerrry soon. Okay, really I am just wishing and dreaming LOL! Tho my ability to manifest is rather remarkable at times!

In the meantime I am having a ball altering my pics... and taking more.

TODAY... we are taking photos of our "love" room being set up for baby :-)
Life is good.
Happy Sunday peeps.
Love and Peace out...
Oh and if you have some links or resources you'd like to share, I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks for the link to itty bitty actions - how cool is that! Makes me long for CS2 (or CS3) but elements will have to do for the time being!

Totally amazed that there are so many talented people creating such stuff! I've so wished on a number of occasions that I could make a photo POP - might be a learning curve to take there! I feel some mucking about with actions coming on...
