Re: Baby step in PS: Ta Dah!

Duck, In the tutorial, the instructor used the brush tool, and suggested clicking ctrl + opt which turned the brush into a red circle on the visible photo. Dragging l or r, changed the size, up or down changed the softness. To work the tiny edges, i used the smallest brush I could which was still vi...

Re: Photo Rorschach -- what is it?

One game at a time. But the new image gives question to the nature of the game. Are we guessing what the actual item is , as in the previous posts by Matt, or are we doing the psichlogical interpretation of an item, as in the mountain's face? Anyhoo... Here's another clue.
