Flickr-Tastic!

19 10 2008

I thought I would remind you that every so often, I create a little something in Photoshop, and that 97.645% of the time, I upload said something to Flickr. If you want to see my little somethings, go to my Flickr photostream at http://www.flickr.com/photos/mrcheese and you can comment on them and things of similar effect. I even uploaded something new today!

I also got my last birthday present today (It makes up for the early one because it’s late) – two, count them, two £15 iTunes vouchers! This means that in total this year I have received £50 of iTunes money! I don’t think I’ll be running out very soon, do you?

Staying Creative

6 09 2008

I carried on the Photoshop antics today as well, creating a cucumber with legs running across a road – not very realistic, I know, but fun to make! I’ll post it up on Flickr later (see previous post for link). In fact, I’ll post it here as well. I also have more tutorial-like videos like Bert Monroy for you: Photoshop User TV, The Russell Brown Show and Photoshop Killer Tips [iTunes Links].

I had a bit of a break today, though. We went to the Lewes Horticultural Show (or something to that effect) to take some photos for the newsletter or magazine that they want to produce with them. I would post some of them, but I don’t have my camera cable with me. You can see them another day.





Getting Creative

5 09 2008

Today, I got started using Photoshop CS and Illustrator CS, both by Adobe. Using “real” Photoshop was easier than for some as I have had a bit of experience with Elements. However, I did not know how to use the pen tool because it isn’t included in Elements! I also have no idea what I’m doing in Illustrator. I’ve played around a bit with it, but I still don’t have a clue about any of it. I’m going to look for some tutorials to start getting used to the basics. If you want to learn some Photoshop stuff, check out Bert Monroy’s weekly video – some of the pictures in my Flickr photostream were made using his techniques, but most of them came from How To Cheat In Photoshop Elements (which is actually co-written by my Chromatically Challenged Father).
