Hard Light trick

So I had one more blog that I was going to read tonight (I have many more to catch up on) before I was going to shut off my computer, Confessions of a Pioneer Woman, and she mentioned a Photoshop trick that I had to quickly try out on a couple of my recent photos. Oh, there are so many tricks in Photoshop that I have to learn!

Here’s the original:

    That’s pretty cool!

    I just read on Susan Albert’s Lifescapes that you one of the stops on her blog tour. That’s really cool. I’m such a fan of hers. I’m not a little envious of you =)

    The colors really pop! It is amazing what you can do with those software programs that are out there now.

    Susan – I was surprised at how “dull” my photos are!

    Rondi – It is! I can’t wait to see what else Pioneer Woman is going to show us! I *love* Susan Albert’s writing, for sure!

    Linda – They do! I drool over photos on Flickr thinking it’s my cameras, and it probably is my lack of knowing how to use Photoshop!
