Photoshop Elements......for Quilters



As I review these images from my 

Beginners Photoshop Elements online class...

I can't believe how much we learned in 12 lessons!



I will share a few more techniques I learned.


We learned to adjust the color on images:


Original image of pink Iris






The entire image has been colorized....

the pink iris is now blue/purple, the yellow background 

flowers are now red.






Original image of pink clematis






The entire image was colorized.....

green clematis and blue leaves......wild!






In this image the clematis flowers remain pink, 

but the leaves are blue.

We were taught to colorize one area and not another.






Original image of lily bud

I was watering the flowerbed with a soaker hose and caught

 the water drops in the sunlight.






I colorized the entire image and really punched up the color

 of the water drops and the background leaves.

This would be great printed out on fabric and thread painted.





Original image of Lily






Only the pink centers of the lily 

were colorized a brighter pink.






The lily remains the original color, but the green background

leaves have been colorized to be a bit brighter.


Many of the students in class did this same color technique

with fabrics from their stash.
