Tug of War

This is Buster and Dakota, my grandkid's dogs. Have fun with them. I used the Postworkshop program for the first time on this pic.

Yup; broke down Dak and got the Pro. Starting to like certain aspects of this cool program, but have a lot to learn for sure. Enjoyed the play.

I like this look and the way you took out that fence. What process did you use for this, Grant?

Yup, me too. It is going to be a fun learning experience I am sure. Guess we are the first ones on our block, lol. I like the way you can blend layers in PostWorkShop. I wish you could do that in DAP.

Re: Tug of War

I actually like the Node editor interface (much more control). Node editing is lossless (hate that word as many here know; I prefer self documenting) too. Node interfacing is the future of editing. I've actually used this program for strait photo edit enhancements too (just as a test; have to get use to doing it this way). Not the first time I've used nodes for programming. In a past life, I did some Labview that worked exactly the same way. I believe GIMP (at least I hope it will) will go this route; lots of talk at GIMPUser. PS needs to hose layers and go the Node route too. Extremely intuitive imo, much so then using layers and adjustment layers.

Thanks Gene and Dak.I used Lucis and Buzz, smudged the dogs a bit and painted out the background with a soft white brush.
