The Campus is the perfect place to learn more about photo editing, various techniques, or PSP in general.
This challenge will give you an opportunity to practice some of those techniques or use some tools.
This Photo Challenge offers you a single photo that you can use creatively. It is a photo of my son, Gabriel (in the middle). The others are Michelle and Sébastien. Since it fit the theme of the month, let’s see how you can showcase that photo on a scrapbook page!
This is a scanned version of a printed photo. The quality is not great, and the size either, but you can surely improve it, can’t you?August 14, 2019 at 12:06 pm #33172

Peggy… well done!… a very nice page.
Annie… you have created a terrific layout for the photo .. well done.. a great result.

Annie: I love your layout (I am not a scrapbooker, so this was a first-step challenge for me). I am hoping to get to the point where I can envision a perfect layout for the subject (as yours is).

Annie, it is a fun way to add the photo into the ice cream!! Quite creative!August 15, 2019 at 6:09 pm #33217
Dear Dawn, thank you very much, I did have fun with this one … it really was a challenge!August 15, 2019 at 6:27 pm #33218
Dear Peggy, thank you, very much appreciated. I would like to say that as a first timer your layout was very well done so again, congratulations. You tubed Gabriel very well. Did you do tubing lessons or do you use the extraction technique in PSP? Just curious as I did do the lessons for a group and obtained a certificate in tubing and I am impressed with your result. ;DAugust 15, 2019 at 6:30 pm #33219
Dear Cassel, thank you very much. As with most things when creating in PSP putting Gabriel into the ice cream on top of the cone came about quite by accident! ;DAugust 15, 2019 at 8:18 pm #33220
Annie: I used the selection tool, copied the selected area, pasted to a new image and cleaned up the borders using the eraser; then used image enhancement to brighten photo. Thanks for the encouragement. As time allows, I will be doing more!August 16, 2019 at 5:55 am #33225
This is another one for the photo challenge. I brightened up the photo somewhat, removed some noise plus softened a few areas then selected around Gabriel, inverted the selection and applied the kaleidoscope effect. I was surprised at the result … it really did highlight the little ice cream muncher! Thanks for takin a peek!August 16, 2019 at 6:45 am #33227
hello Annie…. that kaleidoscope effect in the photo looks terrific… that was a great idea … the photo really catches the eye …. you have created a wonderful page… well done!

You guys always come up with such creative ideas! I love all of them! I just adore the look on Gabriel’s face. He looks like he is really enjoying that ice cream. I really enjoyed this challenge.
