Photoshop is amazing. Rachel taught me how to do the basics last summer as I embarked on my journey through roughly 140 years worth of family photos. I have scanned all of my mother's photos up through the 1960's and have now been able to touch up most of them. They are discolored with age, flecked with dirt and ink marks, bent, torn, and some are missing chunks! As I have tackled more challenging "fix-it" jobs I have learned even more about photo repair. I am not a pro by an means but I am pleased with most of the results. For example, I give you one of my most challenging jobs yet:
With one gliding "crop" click I can remove the white outer margins. One more click of the "auto color" button and...Ta Da!
My clicking hand goes all numb and tingly after a short time at the computer these days. I am re-visiting my osteopath, Dr. Valton King (who grew up in my Aunt Naomi's ward in Mesa) to get my neck adjusted. You should have heard it crunch yesterday!
And seriously, the Frito thing? My kids will tell you that I DO NOT buy Fritos, EVER! I cannot stop eating them! They may beg one Frito casserole out of me a year but I must gain five pounds munching on the salty little chips while I am putting the dish together!
Happy Tuesday everyone! I will still be sitting here just clicking away................
