Bloggy love

Thanks for all the bloggy love on the pictures I posted.  Lots of you were wondering what type of software I’m using.

It’s Photoshop Elements 7.0 and I think I used the “paint daubs” to get her picture from this:

My husband got me the software last year for my birthday or Christmas….I can’t remember which.  I’m trying to put it to good use.  I like it because it’s really forgiving and you can really play around with it a lot!


  1. thanks! just ordered one for my mac!
    you definately should do that rug.
    have a great day!

  2. Hey Tammy!

    I used to have the real Photoshop....and when I switched to Photoshop Elements for a fraction of the price, I was relieved to discover that 99% of the tools I was using are included. So for me it's a real bargain.

    I think my favourite filter is "Cutout" - it helps to simplify a picture and break down the values.


    P.S. The picture you feature in this post was my favourite! ;-)
