Photoshop Cheats Week

This is a picture I found on the web of the Cyclone, a rollercoaster at Coney Island, that I added the "cheat" Dream Blur off of the internet. I really liked the way it boosted the color, and overall just thing it brightened a kind of boring picture.

 This picture I used an ifra red tool I believe. It made the bushes look kind of purple and made the car look older and more decrepit.
 This car I added a dream blur effect to. I think it added something to the picture but I'm not sure what, it kind of gave it some more character I think.

Tilt Shift!

This is a picture of Yankee Stadium that I added the tilt shift affect to. I upped the contrast to it and I really like how it made the fans look darker blue, I think it adds a lot to the picture. I also saturated the field to make it look bright green. I really like how this picture turned out.

 I applied most of the same techniques that I used in the last picture. However, with this picture I found that I liked the way it looked in Photoshop a lot better than how it looks on the blog.

 These are both pictures I found that were taken looking up into the trees. I like the green trees picture a lot better for the fact that the snowy trees picture looks really fake in a bad way.

 These are two pictures I also used the tilt shift feature on. I really like how the picture of the golf flag turned out but I don't like the golf ball picture as much, I think it just looks like I blurred the background.

 I found this picture on the internet and I liked the look of it so I applied the tilt shift effect to make the background look blurred and made it look like I applied the flag myself.

Through using the color replacement tools I took the orange color of another cat and made my gray cat orange! I really think the color looks fake and have definitely come to the conclusion that my cat looks better gray and black! :)

These are the same pictures in both these masks, I just used two different fonts. I like the top font a lot better because I think that the pine font adds a lot to the picture due to the woodsy appeal. However, I like that you can see more of the picture in the last text.

Happy Halloween!

Pete's Saw Shop - This is an old business in O'Neill that I took a picture of when it was raining, so the raindrops add to the effect.

This is another picture that I took of the O'Neill Cemetery,  I added some ghosts using the brush tool along with the moon and clouds above. And in the foreground I added text.

Week 9 - October 18 - 22 - Brush Tools

This picture is one I made using different snowflake brushes that I found on the Internet. I used many different styles and colors and than added the picture we used on our Christmas card last year and added some text. 

This picture was made using the gradient tool for the background and a husker stamp that I made from a picture I found on the Internet. The picture of the Husker game itself, I took last year at the first game of the 2009 season.
 This was a real simple picture that I just used different flower brushes and some free-form text.
