    Free/Cheap Alternatives to Photoshop

    After reading this thread and contributing Artweaver I've had some thoughts about Photoshop, it is the easiest and fastest image editing tool ever, the professionals would soon dump it if it wasn't. I taught myself how to use it simply by 1/. trying the drop downs and 2/. failing. Looking at...

    Photo Manipulation New member here, this is my last work

    Hello SN, I do like the idea behind your image and I would love to buy the 'body' shirt. This is just my personal opinion I held my hand over the shirt and trousers on the left and for me the image became many times stronger, hope you don't mind me saying that. Cheers

    Started as an abstract, ended up figurative

    Hello Argos, Your right about the rarity, I often try some noise in an image but 99/100 reject it. What I liked about it in this instance is the way it fuzzed and broke up the sharp outlines of segments, which became even fuzzier when I added the stone wall and the rock face. Cheers and thanks...

    Started as an abstract, ended up figurative

    Hello Argos, Thanks for the nice comment good of you. I wasn't entirely sure about the noise sometimes when an image that contains rock does look very grainy as I reduce it in size, I thought it might just be that. I then found the PSD with the layers and yes you are quite right I did use...

    Hello from the UK

    Hello Eggy, I agree and you are of course right, I used Ps for making Cyanotype negatives and still for doing what I did with an enlarger. For doing stuff like that I think it's the easiest and fastest program. If it wasn't I guess it would have failed years ago. Cheers and thanks for the welcome.

    Started as an abstract, ended up figurative

    Hello all, After finishing this one I felt a bit like Wallender's dad and his trees. Mine always end up with a figure, can't seem to get away from it. I always think that an image looks incomplete without one. Bit daft I know but then most of us can't help what we do. I find the best thing is...

    Hello from the UK

    Hello all, I've been searching for ages for a forum like this one. So few people seem to be interested in making digital art montages. The ones I talk to are mostly scared of Ps. Having found montages in 1998 I spent the next 13 years doing anything but, so please don't take too much notice of...
