PS Friday News
Tomorrow we’ll be having Live PS Friday over at the DesignerDigitals chat room. It will be so awesome (ahem.. as soon as I devise a cunning plan for it), and I hope you can make it over.
Here are the details:
- PS Friday
- Designer Digitals Chat room (you’ll need to register if you haven’t, and then click on Designer’s Studio)
- 10 p.m. EST
- Katie always gives out a free goodie for showing up, and you can interactively create a layout with me during the hour-long chat. Come join us!
Of course, I’ll post the layout and instructions on Saturday morning if you can’t make it. :)
In other news, I have medicine, and this raging sinus infection I have is on the way out. So looking foward to that.
I’ll leave you with a photo of my sweet Beezer, who looks up at me with these liquidy eyes and my heart wants to explode. His new favorite word is “ah’side”, which, of course (as anyone who speaks this language of his knows) means “outside”, or more correctly, “take me outside right now, woman, before I pitch a giant fit right here in the living room”. Very eloquent, this one. And every day I’m grateful that I can grant his request, because it’s 60+ degrees outside. Every day. Yay for North Carolina winters!
Where this boy got brown eyes and blonde hair is beyond me. I’ll claim the nose and mouth, and the eyebrows and lashes are Jared’s. But seriously. No other genetic evidence exists for the rest of him. I think I’ll keep him anyway.
I’ve been asked a couple times how I got the blue tint on the photo. I actually used an Itty Bitty action for converting to black and white. They give you several tint options at the end of the action.
However, it’s pretty simple to replicate. Just open your photo, convert to B/W, then go to Enhance > Adjust Color > Adjust Hue/Saturation. In the Hue/Saturation dialog, click the Colorize button and set your Hue to about 180 and your Saturation to something like 4 or 5 to get the blue tone.
You can also convert to sepia tone this way. Try Hue 25, Sat 17.
