Thank you Carole for reminding us about the competition. As a result, when I started to look through some of my photos I thought they could be of interest and then used PSP to retouch or adjust.
I have now submitted:
1. Jakey my cat looking like he is having a laugh. I made a selection of him using the method Carole used in her Fantasy World 2 class utilising the Edit Command icon in the Layers Palette. I then put him with a Drop Shadow on a new background.
2. A White Kruger Lion, resident of Paradise Wildlife Park here in Hertfordshire in the UK. We could take photos from above the railings and his expression was so proud. I loved his mane so I brightened it up a bit in PSP with Adjust\hue & saturation\vibrancy and then used the Depth of Field feature to blur outside of the mane.
3. The amusing southern white rhinos were at Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire, England. I used PSP to brighten them and their background and to remove a distracting rock with Object Remover.
