Hey, there! Has anyone been watching CreativeLive’s Photoshop Week? If not, all this week, assorted PS gurus are doing workshops for ya at CL. Each one is only a few hours long, as opposed to CL’s usual time frame of 6-8 hours. The week long activities are sponsored by Adobe. There has been segments on actions, content aware and brushes, so far, along with some other beneficial sessions on retouching photos, PS workspaces, etc. Today’s line up looks promising, too. This morning there is one on ‘Advanced Actions’ and another on working non-destructively. They are running two at a time, so, be sure to look up at the very top of CL’s page for the green button that says, “Watch Live 2”. A drop down menu will appear with the two that are currently running. Click on the one you like to see and watch away! They also do re-broadcasts in the evenings if you happen to miss one you like. You can also purchase the courses so you can watch them whenever you want. When you purchase, you also get any related course material with it, such as files that allow you to work along with the video/class. On the PS Week feature page there is a schedule of the courses so you can map out which ones you like. Do realize that CL is in the PST time zone and adjust your schedule accordingly.
Digital Whisper has re-opened! My old haunt is back and going full speed ahead! DW is a Ning group site with all kinds of good things! There are individual groups, plenty of challenges and, so much support and help. The art some of these folks create is stunning! I am so honored to be exposed to their personal styles and tips/advice. I run the “Learning Center” and the “Photo-Manipulation” groups, myself. I’m not that much an authority, but, we manage! LOL There is a small fee for new members, if you are interested. (Ning charges now, so, the fee is to offset costs.) The role of the group is to give aspiring artists feedback and support in ways that are beneficial. It’s also a place to hone your digi skills. They are a wonderful bunch! DW is where I learned a good deal of what I do. If we don’t know, we find out!
I have yet another goody for you from “A Rose is a Rose”. You have the whole kit. I had forgotten a couple of items, so, I want to give you those here. The other day, I gave you the cherub frame, and today, another frame:
And, some lips:
and, last, but, not least, a word art cluster I played around with:
BE SURE TO CLICK ON THE IMAGE AND SAVE AS A .PNG! While I do host these, they aren’t zipped. They should open a new page. M’kay?
That will be it for today. CL is starting up! Until next time,
