Thanks for all this info Shelli..I am having a ball playing with photoshop too...in fact if I'm not careful, I spend more time playing with that than I do working on my bears!
Two books I found extremely helful were "Photoshop 7.0 for Dummies" and Photo colour correction for Photoshop"..that's not the exact name but something similar. Both were available at our local library so there is no need to spend any money. The first one has tutorials on how to use all the basic tools you need and in dummy talk. This one gets my vote.

bear_flower Shelli, that collage is awesome! You're really good with the outline thingy. Now I understand what's meant by 'flattening' the layers, and why you can't change the pic after you flatten! My brain hurts.  :wacko:

Now I will be going back and rereading everything in the referance library about photo's....

There was a big dif between the two photos you just showed us, but i loved the face first....what a sweet sweet face that little girl has, and Lavendish is a wonderful name!!

Hey, thanks Dilu; actually my retailer Wendy Collins in NH named MISS LAVENDISH. I loved it too!

The light tent is curative for so many photographic ails.  I'm glad to hear you're having fun with it.

Mom just finshed this bear and I took pictures.

Shelli - This is the bear I told you about the one with "Michelle Lamb" eyes. We'll see how he sells.

Wow!  I guess that IS a good reason to brush up on photo editing skills!  Thanks Shelli.
