A few weeks ago, I signed up to take Kim Klassen's Skinny Mini E-Course. It is a free two-week mini course in Photoshop. We just wrapped up week I. If you've been reading my blog, you'll know that I have been playing around and learning Photoshop for a few months now. Despite that, I have learned many new things in the short period of time since we started this eCourse such as becoming more familiar with blend modes, using blend modes with text, using the color drop tool and saving photos for web.
The two photos above were part of my homework for Thursday. She wanted us to apply the soft light blend mode to two photos, apply any adjustment layer to enhance the photos and add text, using black on the lighter photo and white on a darker photo. I then changed the blend mode on the text to soft light. After that, I saved my image as a .psd file in case I wanted to come back later and work with the layers. Then I saved the images for web, which I never knew how to do before. This actually saved me an extra step as I uploaded them here to post to my blog.
This is such a great introduction to Photoshop and I'm really enjoying being a part of it as well as connecting with other bloggers and Photoshop users. She offers a more in depth class, The Essentials - Instant Access and Self-Paced - and it is only $59 for August only. If it's something you might be interested in, click here to head on over to her site for more information. Or you can click on the Skinny Mini button on my blog's side bar. You can find other courses she offers on her site as well.
It appears that the Skinny Mini is still open if you want to register and take part!
