Re: Baby step in PS: Ta Dah!

Set up the tablet this morning and put the mouse aside. Started a tutorial; let's see where this goes. Many thanks. Matt Eh, forget the tutorial. With a tablet is all about getting used to it. Open up a blank document in Photoshop and just start messing around. Get a feel for the new coordination b...

Re: Mystery light

Thanks Chuck. Here's another eggshells photo I prefer because of the angle. Does the cloth distract? Matt The cloth may distract a little. It's not the texture so much as the wrinkles.
