I love learning and photoshop tutorials...

I am sooooooooo on a roll...I love learning new techniques in photoshop. I just recently downloaded the thirty day trial for CS4 and I am already addicted. I am a very visual person so when it comes to learning a new program, I need the step by step visuals. Tonight after my little man went to bed, I decided to do a little cruising on the web and came across several tutorials on photoshop. One was enhancing the eyes and the second was softening the face. After playing around with both techniques, I finally got it figured out and it wasn't that hard at all!! So here are my pictures, please let me know what you think and if I should do anything different...don't want to take editing overboard if you know what I mean!!

Don't forget to let me know what you think!!

Love it!!!!!!!!! Especially the softening of the face...I need to learn how to do that. I have PSE7, however, so I'll just have to search the web for a tutorial. I recently learned how to make the eyes "pop", too, and that's one of my favorites. Austin doesn't need much help in that department...ha! :) Good work, Stephanie!!!

Oh my goodness!!! I think you did a great job!! Would you like to share the tutorial, please?? Im also learning how to use Photoshop, I was a Picnik user but I have CS3 and I have been forcing myself to learn it. Also Pioneer Woman has some free actions on her page that you can put on CS4...I think you would really love them-I do!
Keep up the great work, your doing awesome!

I'm soooooo JEALOUS!! I want CS4!! I got Photoshop Elements, to start my crazy designs and digi scrapping, I love it! But, I'm wishing I got CS4. It can do so much more.

I'm a VERY VISUAL person also;)
