Photoshop and Rainy-day Frustrations
I have been trying to learn how to use the various selection tools in photoshop in order to create layer masks. I really struggle with this. I watched a tutorial this morning about changing backgrounds and then proceeded to give it a try with this image of a Mockingbird that had a very busy background. It was a struggle to outline the bird and twig. If anyone has any tricks to share or preferences as to which selection tool they find easier, I sure would love to hear about it. I find this very difficult.
In hindsight, I probably shouldn't have cropped the bird quite so much as it seems to overwhelm the background. Or perhaps I should have picked a different background. I actually had no intentions of using this for my blip, but it rained pretty heavily this afternoon, so this is all I've got.
We are very water-logged. There is serious flooding to the north of us in Pennsylvania and we have been under a flash flood warning for days. The biggest threat now is trees toppling because of the saturated soil. Thankfully, no rain is predicted for tomorrow.
