Ooooh Photoshop!

So yesterday I got to install photoshop cs4 on my mac... ohhh it's so pretty, but I haven't a clue how to use it properly yet! I managed to figure out how to add actions so I've been playing around with them mostly, ohh they're lots of fun!

I have a book on it's way to me. Scott Kelby's Photoshop CS4 book. I love the guy's books, so I'm sure I'll like this one too. I just need to wait till wednesday for it to arrive...

I used my tripod properly for the first time this evening too. The view of the skies from my deck (ahhh I have a DECK! XD) are so gorgeous! However I haven't figured out what I want to do with them yet... when I do I'll post them here.

I was amazed at the difference between Photoshop and Elements - they really are like two completely different products. I can see now why the creative suite version is so expensive in comparison. The learning curve on PSE was pretty easy, but on photoshop it's a whole different ball game. I think I will be spending many an evening sat at my Mac and my new book trying to figure it all out!

I have been spending some more time on the Clickin' Moms forums and I have to say, they really are a friendly bunch of people, and oh my word so knowledgeable! Now that I know what I'm looking for a little more when I'm there it's easier to navigate through the forums. There is so much good advice on there, I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who wanted somewhere to learn and meet some amazing women.

The only problem with having so much to play with on my Mac now is that I seem to be lacking the motivation to go to bed on time. Oh dear!
