One small sep for man - One giant leap for me.

Just done my first bit of work with ps elements 5, i used the clone stamp to remove the stuff in the background, if thats the wrong tool to use i would be
pleased to hear if thats not the best tool to use.

Not much of step for others on here i know, but for me i am happy to have finally managed to use elements (with a little bit of help from Scott Kelby of course):)

Edit, oops just spotted i missed some behind the ear

Not sure if it is just me, but i can still see from where there are creases in that piece of paper in the edited version, also if i tilt my head i can notice the stokes from using the clone tool.

Yeah you are right its no way perfect, i could not see it at first on my monitor, but when i printed it, it was more than obvious so i looked at again and tilted my monitor then i could see all the imperfections.
Still it was my first attempt at anything like this and hopefully i can only get better at it:(

I always find that viewing any edited picture from different angles will show up imperfections which you cant notice by looking head on at it ...................

I have only taken a quick look the book in general, but i have a bit of trouble remembering things, so i find it best to reference the book as i use a particular function, havent had much time to use it as i am knackered when i come home from work (roll on retirement)
Already i have learnt that i need to be more patient when using ps, instend of trying to do things in a couple of minutes.
Have problems with elements 5 as when its installed it corrupts the rest of my programmes, ie it slows everything down to a point where i cant use any of them (except elements) dont know if anyone else has come across this problem ??, so for the moment i have resorted to using the original elements programme that i have, which as far as the clone tool is concerned works the same as elements 5:( :(

I Look forward to your digital montages;) :D
One small step for others, a step too far for me:devil:

Famous last words:rotfl:

Montaging is fun and doesn't require more skill than you probably already have. I sometimes make them and get them printed off at a "proper" photo print service for friends and family

Photo enhancing is very addictive ( and time consuming) but it does show that many images have hidden potential waiting to be tapped
I dont mind Scott Kelbys Humour , it may be OTT at times but it does keep you alert:D
Remembering how to use PS is not second nature. It comes with repeated use unless you do some tasks very frequently. I always have his books close by ( PS and Elements)
However it makes sense to read them back to back at least once as you will remember what to reference when you have need of a technique
Well done :smashin:
once you "conquer" your fear of PS or PSE you will find that many previously discarded images become keepers

Couldn't really see it on my work monitor, but I can on my laptop. I would suggest if you have large area's that you want to be black (like the left hand side of this image) then maybe use the paintbrush tool instead of a clone stamp :)
