I'm a photoshop wannabe. I want to learn it so badly, no just so that I can make myself ten pounds lighter. Or twenty, whatever. I wanted to make one of those Andy Warhol pop art pictures out of a picture of my dog, and I failed miserably. Miserably. I couldn't even get four of the same picture on one page. It was that bad.
So I start small. I started with a scanner, really. And I started by finding an old picture frame in the closet with no end of junk. I took pictures of the five places that Sarge and I have lived since we married and scanned them. All except for the recent house, which belongs in the digital age.
I cropped them to make them all artistic-like, because, quite honestly, we've never lived in an architectural wonder. And besides, I needed them to be vertical and all the pictures were horizontal. I turned them all black and white.
And that is the extent of my current Photoshop knowledge. And now I have this:
I'd crop it and enlarge it for you, if only I knew how.
