Italy

My good friend spent two weeks in Italy this past month. She came home with some very nice photos, She gave me permission to post some here for non commercial use.

Re: Italy

I like your edges. Where did you find them or did you make them yourself?

Re: Italy

Very nice, Cathy. I love the pinks too. I use a lot of those tones in my home. Very livable colors, copper, mauve, dusty rose, peach and coral.

Here's my version. Thanks for a wonderful picture, Amy.

Re: Italy

Hi Thanks, I saw this tutorial on Photoshop TV.
You make a selection of the edge, then add a layer mask, you go to Distort/Displace/go under the presets/texture - and i picked mountain.

you need to have a white or black layer underneath your photo to see the effect.

Then I made a selection of the edge (on the layer mask) - took the marque tool and subtracted the inside section. (Activate the photo) Duplicated this to a new layer, then I added a drop shadow. and changed the layer mode to I think screen.

I hope this is clear.

Re: Italy

Wonderful photo. Thanks for sharing it with us Amy. I loved the colors and the old, soft faded look. I also love what everyone has done with it.

Here is mine.

P.S. When I looked at it on screen after posting, the compression really made the dark areas darker...way darker than on the original. When you look at it, think lighter, way lighter. Thanks.

Janet
