I heart Photoshop!

Lots of scrappers say they really don't think they would use Photoshop much. I guess if you're a good photographer in the first place, you might not -- but I don't take a great photo (well, maybe once or twice by sheer accident) and my photos need as much help as they can get.
Have a look at this before and after. (I snagged this photo from my mum but I have one almost identical - taken in the rainforest so the light was quite dim)

I used various tricks (with layers and blending modes) to jazz up the photo, and then added fairy lights to the lamps. Better?


  1. Toni, I love it!!! You've made it look magical, but real at the same time. And I love how you did the LO. Its just stunning!

  2. oh man, now you're talking! i *heart* photoshop too!

    i love being creative with my pics. i often see great photos, but they are too dark, or uncropped, or just a little bland, and i wish i could just wave my little wand over them...

    i think photoshop changes a great photo into an awesome one!

  3. WOW this is sooooo beautiful.
    as Maria would say
    !!!!!You Rock the Digi !!!!!

  4. Go Toni the Wonder DT!!! Actually like you I too heart fact I have figured out how to do word art by myself...this looks AWESOME!!!!

  5. Wow this looks amazing I love that you added the fairy lights your picture looked beautiful before photoshop but now it looks even better.....
    This just looks wonderful...
