This week my shiny new copy of Adobe Design Standard CS5 arrived. ?This time the church paid for it so it is even better. ?I wrote previously about how I was so looking forward to it because of the new content aware feature. ?Tonight I spent some time photoshopping stuff. ?Just for fun. ?I tried to pick images that I could erase things from. ?Here are 3 before and afters for you.
The first is of a ferry boat on Puget Sound at sunset. There were lens flares and other stuff obstructing the image…
so I took them out.
The next is the obligatory St. Basil’s shot of Kathou & Paypay. Everyone who has ever been to Red Square will tell you it is impossible to get a photo in front of St. Basil’s without hoards of people in the background.
Now with the magic of Photoshop CS5 you can be the only ones there.
The last picture isn’t very exciting. I grabbed a random image to show the trusty husband what the program can do.
As it turns out, it can make a relatively crappy photo pretty darn good.
