I know that Lynda and Fiona already submitted some projects.May 26, 2022 at 4:17 am #77230
Hi Carole, I submitted info and photos to this Forum thread just now but it didn’t register so I am going to have another go.May 26, 2022 at 4:30 am #77237
I submitted three photos for the contest, following Carole’s reminder about it:
The first is of Jakey my cat who looked like he was having a laugh. I used the selection technique we learned about in the Campus ‘Fantasy World 2’ utilising the Edit Command icon in the Layers Palette. I added a drop shadow and then put him on a new background that contrasted with his fur colour.May 26, 2022 at 4:38 am #77239
The second photo is one I took above the railings at Paradise Wildlife Park in Hertfordshire, England, of a resident White Kruger Lion. I loved his mane and his proud expression. I used PSP to brighten up the mane with Hue & Saturation\ Vibrancy. Then used the Depth of Field feature to blur outside of his mane.May 26, 2022 at 4:42 am #77241
The last photo I submitted for the contest is an amusing shot of Southern White Rhinos from Longleat Safari Park, Wiltshire, England. I used PSP to brighten up with Vibrancy and also removed a distracting rock with the Object Remover tool.May 26, 2022 at 9:28 am #77229
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.May 29, 2022 at 1:05 pm #77262SharlaParticipant
