I hate to admit it but for all the years on the computer I didn't "get" the paint program. So I just didn't mess with it.
I decided to see what I could do with a vintage photo and thought it would be fun to show you the steps as I go along.
This is a picture of my mother and me probably in either 1942 or 43. Mother was 19 or 20.
My goal is to make it delicate and translucent and I think the coloring I've used for the trees, which is all I've done, is too gaudy but luckily I did figure out how to erase. I started with the easy things first.
Please feel free to offer your input - I think this will be kind of fun. Diane
