    Anyone ever get a great shot of your animal, but then the background is cluttered, I can remove backgrounds, people, collars, dirt spots...prefect for websites!

    Here's one example:

    [​IMG]
    This background of Gold Rush is a total mess, got a good shot of him standing in front of the deck we're fixing up. :doh:
    After..not quite done...
    [​IMG]
    So far I've removed the entire background with black, used a base color, I still need to extend the grass (hand drawn)
    Removed, arm of the handler, collar, and fixed up the end of his tail.

    If anyone wants me to fix up their photos, $5 ea, I'll gladly do it. and the first 3 are free.
    1. open
    2.open
    3.open

    will be edited after each free opening is filled.

    I love photo editing haha! Sometimes it's a pain, sometimes not. I do love photoshop :)

    I took this pic 3 years ago of a filly named Eight Belles <whom I asbolutely adored!!!>. She was so close to me I couldn't back up anymore with my lens and cut off the tip of her nose! I was sooo upset! You can see where it was cut off, and this was the only sample I saved of me trying to figure out if I could fix it...haha...

    [​IMG]

    End result - adding on the section above, and taking the 'tip' of her nose from another pic similar to this one:

    [​IMG]

    I love that pic so much, she was such a special filly...

    Amazing what you can do with Photoshop!

    Pam - I absolutely LOVE your pics! I love browsing them in Flickr. I live in KY and sure it's pretty here, but I LOVE mountains, and your scenes and wildlife pics are fantastic!

    Thanks so much! As I said your work is great! I've never been much of anywhere, but my favorite place to go is the TN mountains <Gattlinburg area>. I'd love to see the mountains in Alaska, the snowtop peaks are gorgeous.

    I don't really do a lot of tinkering on photoshop, that was probably one of my most difficult projects, but I was so happy to make it print worthy. She was such a special horse, gone much too soon <she died 2 weeks after the pic :( >.

    Have you ever done pics with selective coloring? Something else I enjoy doing occassionally. Otherwise I love tinkering with photoshop actions. It's amazing the different affects you can do with pics. I just learn as I go and end up saving links because half of the things I can never remember LOL
