It's Love. Or maybe it's just that I've come all the way from Photoshop 5 (mid 90's?) and a CRT monitor that I bought in 1999 to the current, and zoomed about 15 years through time, and I'm experiencing Time Warp Euphoria.
I played around with some photos taken through my windows to see how all this new stuff works ~
|BEFORE shot of Chickadee outside my studio.|
|The AFTER image, using the Content Aware Fill function. I've no clue what that Pipe-Looking thing is growing out of the tree. It isn't a branch, and it's too high up to get a closer look at.|
The Content Aware Fill Function is powerful, but you have to use it judiciously - look at that area behind the Chickadee, and you can see the Wonky - looking leaves. It was quick, quick, quick - but wanted to fill that area with the tree, the bird, etc. More practice required.
If you don't mind looking at Frog Privates, here's a test run of the new levels correction tool in CS5...
|Pretty murky BEFORE...|
|Sorry about the dirty window...time does get away from you when you have so many new toys to play with!|
Spider Ma'am started out really large...
|Her web is pretty messy...looks like some Honky-Tonk nights have been going on in Spider Land.|
She was harder to deal with, so I decided to crank her up and use lots of the new functions to see what would happen:
|Now you can REALLY see her messy house!|
But Man, I feel like somebody just came along and put double layers of Butter on my Bread!
