    :frustrated: What do you do when your eye site is going? I just reviewed some of my jpegs of old PS manips and found stupid errors. I think I already had a 23 inch monitor. Maybe I need a 55? But, maybe I need a copy of PS software first, so I actually have something to work with. :slap:

    Hi y'all I know I've been absent like . . . forever. I can't find my albums. Have these been removed? They had better jpegs than some of those I still have since I lost PS. Now my sister wants some that are larger to publish in venues in her city in Northern Cal that have been hit so hard by the...

    Greyed Layers

    I have, on more than one occasion, experienced layers going from highlighted to greyed out. The only way I have found to return accessibility is to double click the layer to bring up the layer styles palette, which restores the highlighted layer. Even at that, however, I can't use the mask...

    Challenge: Do You Wanna Spring or are You Warped

    I am going to apologize before I even begin this thread. I love grammar - having grown up in a very politically and grammatically correct home. So sue me! Malaproprism is a word which combines the prefix "mal-," suffix "-ism," and the operative word, "appropriate." There are several...

    Fog on the Meadow

    Here is something I did for fun. Haven't been doing much of that lately. The main model isn't as high resolution as I usually work, but I liked the image so I used it. The hay background was a higher resolution and is a beautiful photo. I look forward to comments and critiques. These are...

Oddly, in 2009, I had my easel set up in the garage when we had a fire there. The painting survived. I had to...

    Hondo and his tennis ball

    I am constantly surprised how good a job today's smart phones do in the picture taking business. My fiancee took this at the dog park, and his phone is not the very latest technology. I know there are totally blown areas. I tried levels and burning (really not my favorite tool - exposure should...
