You Got Me Good Elements!

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

I have a secret to tell y'all. I am in love with Photoshop. I have been in love with it since I was on the yearbook staff in high school. It is pretty much cooler than sliced bread.

My sophomore year of college, I got my own version of Photoshop for my computer. I can't tell you how many pictures I edited even before I would put them on Facebook! But when my computer died, I went without Photoshop for the longest time.

Luckily with my new computer I got an upgraded version of Photoshop. I went from using Photoshop Elements 8 to Elements 12. And let me tell you, those versions in between really changed how Photoshop looks!

It is crazy how I can't find how to do anything anymore! I used to be an expert Photoshop user. I could do pretty much anything I wanted. Now I'm sure that I couldn't tell you how to use every single tool in Elements 8, but whatever I could dream of doing, I could execute it.

With the new Photoshop, everything is so different. I actually looked for Youtube videos to figure out how to do things. Let me tell you, trying to figure out how to insert an image as a separate layer took me about 10 minutes. Who knew it would be under File>Place. You got me good Photoshop, you got me good.

So anyway, I'm hoping now that I have Photoshop back at my disposal, I'll have no excuse for crappy pictures. Well, no excuse once I learn where everything is again...

What do you use to edit photos?
Have you had to relearn a new software update?


  1. I love Photoshop as well! A family friend first gave it to me when I was in high school, and I LOVED playing around with photos... now it's (well, a much newer version) what I use to create my graphics! :)
