Sunday Selfies: Annoyed

Mom wanted me to take my selfies yesterday but I was a little miffed at her. Can you tell? She was making me wear the harness again — all day! Well, it seemed like all day. I did not want to look at the camera or push that stupid little button.

Caturday Art: Sketches and Glows

Mom was having so much fun with this week’s Caturday Art project that I had to make her stop so she could go to bed!

Here’s the original photo.

Glowing edges original

She decided she wanted to try a colored pencil sketch this week. She used the colored pencil filter on a duplicate layer. Using luminosity on this layer made the color pop through more from the original layer underneath.

Sunday Selfies: Mom is Home

Mom has been out all weekend horsing around with her friends. She turned off the computer before she left so I couldn’t do any posting while she was gone. She always does the typing, but if she hadn’t closed up the computer and turned it off, I bet I could have figured something out! She has barely gotten home in time to post my selfies for this week and we are way behind visiting all my friend’s blogs. At least she got the Caturday Art post ready before she left.

Sunday Selfies: Ocean’s Turn

Ocean said he was feeling a little left out, what with mom taking pictures of me all the time and me writing my blog and even writing about Echo’s story a few days ago. So, being the gracious feline that I am, I told him he could do the Sunday Selfies this week.

Since it was his first time with the camera, he had a tough time figuring out how to get both sides of his face in the photo at once.

Caturday Art: Frosted Christy

Well, one of the downfalls of PhotoShop, at least for mom, is that you can get to fiddling with filters and such and forget what you did. That’s what happened with this photo. She was liking the effect so much she just kept tweaking and forgot to write down what she did. She knows she was working mostly with the ink outlines filter. She even tried to reproduce it so she could tell you what she did with not much luck. I have discussed this with her and she promises to be more careful next time.

One thing to keep in mind when working with any of the photo editing tools is that the photo itself will determine how the filter effects it. That means that even if you apply all the same steps to a different photo, it will have its own personality.
