The History Of Photoshop In One Picture
I recently posted about wishing that sharpening was an adjustment layer. There’s a good conversation in regards to some of the reasoning within.
For those of you who want to take advantage of the job openings. If you know anyone who needs a job in the industry, pass this on.
It’s like your memories, but more epic. If you could upgrade your memories of these games, this would be how you would do it right.

“A mash-up of video game characters and photographic scenes. As a kid I would become completely immersed in there crude pixel environments and they would seem very real! I thought it would be fun to try to express how gamers see these worlds. I spent many hours gaming with my siblings and friends when I was growing up and this aesthetic has really come to represent that time.”
Currently, you have two main options that you could go with:
1. Photoshop Elements 11 ($70, depending on where you look)
2. GIMP (Free)
The best part about each option is you can download them for FREE to visually compare the pros and cons of each, as no list truly sums that up. Photoshop Elements and the standard Photoshop can be downloaded for free as a trial. Gimp is free to use forever.
I have personally never used both and cannot give you a first hand account, however even prior to reading about the differences, I would download them quickly to see for myself.
You can also see a lot of literature about these programs through their websites as well as Googling keywords such as “Gimp vs Photoshop”, “Gimp vs Elements” etc.

How To Add Freckles In Photoshop
Elena Jasic is a fashion photographer with an interesting and useful tutorial. Here’s how to add freckles in Photoshop.

I would use this in a situation where someone may already have freckles and you wanted an enhanced cluster. Do be careful with overdoing it, I can see this technique being distastefully done in the wrong hands.
