I'm absolutely loving my Photoshop Elements class that I'm taking through www.jessicasprague.com. Jessica was sick a week ago, so class just started back up again on Monday. In Lesson 5, we learned about clipping masks, which are "things" you can put behind a photo layer to give it an interesting shape when tied into that photo.
I can't really explain it as well as she can, but here are my most recently Before & After examples to explain.
This is probably my favorite from the photos I edited. Notice how the After photo on the right has a rough edge to it. That's compliments of the clipping mask.
This is a friend's Welsh Corgie... I believe his name is Dexter (I can't remember exactly). I LOVE Welsh Corgies. I've always said I wanted a chihuahua, but the more I look at this cute little face, the more I wonder if a Corgie might be the way to go... I will have to think about that.
Since I haven't been participating in Scavenger Hunt Sunday these past few weeks, I figure I'd at least show you what I'm learning. What do you think?
