I really need a shove, discipline and hand holding to learn Photoshop. So, I decided to try to post an edited photo once a week. I started to do this last year. Signing up for it was the shove, posting was the discipline, but I had no one to hold my hand. This year, I have an accountability partner. Hopefully, I can get through the year, learn what simple things I need to from Photoshop, and also delve into some other processing programs that are taking up space in my computer.

With this lofty goal in mind, Iย recently spent more than 4 hours trying to eliminate the transparency from a masked item so I can place it, without a background, in another photo.

I will not stop until I’m successful! It’s frustrating though.

I watch tutorials. Go to my computer. Open up Photoshop and can’t recreate the exact process. I need to bring up my laptop and work the tutorial and Photoshop on my desktop together.

Enough complaining, the pictures in this post are the last from our Point Reyes outing. It was a fun day. I wasn’t out there to take photos, but who could resist. In the last post, you saw some of Richard’s pictures and mine. Today, it’s all mine.

Take time from whatever is frustrating you and relax. I hope you enjoy these images. I don’t need a shove, discipline or hand holding to take the pictures; just to learn new editing techniques.

      1. Sorry, I couldn’t figure out how to reply to your comment below. Music is a big part of my life even though I can’t carry a tune or play an instrument. It fills my soul.

  1. Nice second part, Anne!!! And this time I can say I like your photos!! ๐Ÿ˜›
    I’m also struggling with Photoshop… I don’t even know where to start to edit a photo! I think Lightroom is enough for me, hehehe

    1. Thank you Mercedes. I know my problem with PS is that there is no manual. You need to rely on the tutorials. There are also many ways to accomplish the same thing. I do find getting rid of something in the image is much easier in PS than in LR and it does a better job.
