    No photo shop here - the flower itself was in very bright direct sunlight - and although there was a perfectly visible background behind it, it was so dark compared to the direct light on the flower - it pretty much just vanished.

    I was thinking of starting a "photoshop" club (Photoshop, Gimp etc), but I will be going back this summer (read: no internets :eek:) and I wouldn't be able to maintain the page, does anyone want to start the club or I will just go ahead and start one, and leave it to rot during summer?

    I'm learning Gimp on the fly. There are a few good tutorials around, but not much.

    A few more from me.

    What sort of filter is on that first picture? I'm using a wallpaper with that same effect on it right now, I think it looks really good.


    Made a little whitebox from a cut-open cardboard box and a white T-shirt. Tested it out with my phone. I also added some photoshop stuff because I'm a shoopin fool.

    I'm still learning with Photoshop. I got out of it for like 4 years and forgot a lot of things :/

    First, thanks!

    Second, it is called cross processing. In the days of film if you used the wrong processing chemicals for a certain film type the effect was achieved. Today in the wonderful world of Photoshop you just have to do a few simple steps. The effect creates a high contrast image and tends to make blacks have a blue hue and also introduce magenta into a lot of reds. Follow the below link to learn and enjoy!

    If you have Photoshop why bother with GIMP? Also there is already a Photoshop clubhouse.

    Yeah, I got pretty busy with school and really didn't need the added stress that moderating TPU! added, so I kind of retired and drifted away. I haven't just been a member since 2005 I think I'll enjoy just being able to come to TPU! to relax instead of get assaulted from all directions by people's whiny unimportant drama :laugh: . I love TPU! though, and was happy to help build the forum into what it is today, so I can't stay away forever.

    Honestly? Both. But if you can do only 1, my thinking is the 85. But I would have the 50 in your pocket.
