Learning Photoshop

Aug 22 2010 Published by under Photography, Projects

Another thing I am trying to learn how to do these days is to use Photoshop. The real Photoshop is overwhelming so I downloaded a trial version of Photoshop Elements 8. So far I am finding it easy to use but I am impatient and want to be able to do more than just crop and mess with the levels.

I found one good, free video tutorial that taught me lots about layers and a specific type of colorizing. The end result is pretty nice but I would love to hear your thoughts on what I could do better.

If anyone knows any other free video tutorials that are decent please send them my way. I found one about magic brushes and tried to spot highlight the following image but I am not thrilled with it.

It just looks too faked. Any tips on what I could do to improve it? Here is the original:
