Playing with textures and PSP Ultimate Photo x2

Good morning Folks ~ I saw some lovely photographs by Georgianna Lane the other day and would love to do what she does. She is a professional though and I’m an amateur, big difference. Maybe with time and practice I can do what she does. She is an inspiration to me.

I even dreamed there was a tool in my toolbar in PSP that I could just click on and it would make a lovely whispy background image. No such thing when I woke up.

Anyway, I got into my program and started playing with textures, layers, borders and picture frames and below is what I did for today.

DH was a help too when I couldn’t seem to figure things out with layers. (My computer geek hero to the rescue.)

If anyone out there knows any good tutorials about backgrounds, etc. using PSP I’d be grateful for links to them.

Thank you for taking the time to look. I’ll have another post about gardening down here in s.e. FL, later.

(I had written this yesterday afternoon, so changed the wording this morning. Last evening DH and I talked more about all of this and he suggested I download GIMP because it is a great FREE open source program. It will be a new learning experience as the program is different than what I am used to. So, if I'm not posting in here as much, you'll know where I am.)

It looks to me like you are doing pretty well on your own!

The photos are beautiful.

I admire what you are doing with the photo programs--I'm usually a bit reluctant to try anything new on the PC---fears that everything will be whisked away if I take the wrong steps.
A lot of time can go into learning these special effects--I'll watch for your next experiments.

Can't imagine anything more lovely than
these photos are, Flower Lady. Just great!
It's so energizing to learn something new,
isn't it?

I think they are beautiful, for just trying to learn how it all works. Imagine what they will look like as you go on. WOW.

WOW love what you did with your photo program.If Gimp is a free down load I might just try some thing like that. Since I know nothing about any of it I might not get anywhere.

Gorgeous pictures.
