I have CS3 and want to learn Photoshop… all those awesome things people do… I want to do that.
I did the “Hey, what’s this button do?” *click* “What about this?” *click* … you get the idea.
I figured out Layer > New Adjustment Layer and then Change Layer Content > Color Balance for some neat effects…. (Or at least I think.) I need to read some of the Photoshop book to understand colors a little better.
Was the original image I started with. (I don’t remember where exactly I found it.. a place with free wallpapers?)
It’s not all that special… but it’s me definitely becoming a little more comfortable with Photoshop. And of course it’s a way for me to mess with uploading pictures on wordpress.
And I’ll need to figure out why wordpress won’t let me add categories now…
Ordered the 8800 GT video card, 2 more gigs of ram and Vista Ultimate 64 bit OEM version from Newegg earlier. I’ll be moving from XP Pro to Vista Ultimate on my desktop and getting a bigger, badder video card and doubling my ram in the process.
In theory I’ll be able to do all of this before the semester starts next year. That hinges on a number of things.
Starting cleaning up the computer shelf. It’s so called that because it’s in the computer room/office. It’s got 2 printers, my work laptop, my collection of pictures (film variety) and almost all of my non fiction type books as well as school related books/etc. I took before pictures of the mess.
Why is it such a pain in the ass to find fragrance free hand soap? Some nice soap for using after I’ve been preparing raw meat in the kitchen for example. To provide some context… regular Dial hand soap smells really strong to me now. I don’t want to try using it on me.
Don’t even get me started on the “hand soap” in “public” restrooms.
I’ve made more stuff to keep up with. It’s become clear now I like blogging… so now to try something that looks a little nicer. Neater, cleaner, too?
Between school, reading, work, blogging, MMOs and messing around with other crap… who knows what’s going to happen.
This is really just a bunch of random crap for having a real blog post to look at. 😀
I don’t know how content will appear on this here blog… pictures might happen first. Comments on stuff I’m reading as well. Rants. Whines. Commentaries. Ok. That’s enough for now.
The edit post option is very nice here.
Sadly, I’ve already messed something up..
I made the blogroll disappear. *cry Changed the template 3x now. Maybe I’ll stick with this one.. but I must change the colors if I’m going to do that.
