Re-Creating a Photo 2


Back to square one. I thought the green paint was way too gaudy and couldn't figure out how to erase it so I just deleted that one and started with a fresh one. Spent the evening drawing around some objects, mostly the trees. Now I'm trying to figure out how to use the paint can. I thought it was supposed to fill between the drawn lines but can't figure it out yet. I'm just stumbling along, so please bear with me. Diane

You're daring! I'd have to learn to scan an photo first - I'll be interested to see where you go from here.

I've never tried to use this feature either Diane, so although I'd love to give you some tips, you know more than me for sure!

I don't know which program you are using,but in Photoshop Elements you can set the opacity when painting.Good luck.

Sometimes with those older pictures, there isn't much you can do... Instead of trying to 'paint' it---try some of the features like 'warmifying' it --or darkening or lightening it... That's what I would do...
