      I am noticing alot of the pictures being used in Swirly LOs have a black background so that the subject of the photo really pops. I am thinking that at least some of these photos are manipulated. How do you do that? I am forever not liking what's in the background and use the Clone Stamp tool to change it but still…. I use PSE but not very well!! I think leaing to use PSE might be my New Year;s Resolution….oh but it takes sooooo sooooo long and I'd rather be scrapping!

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

      There are a lot of ways to do this Maggie. A lot of times you can blur the background and add a texture or an adjustment layer. You have to take a look at the tuts on line and spend the time to lea pse. It's well worth it. There are some tuts on my blog if you want to check it out.

                  I figured out how to do it using the paint brush, are there better ways?

                    Sure. I just chose this photo cause I thot it would be easy to work with – the white contrasting with the black backgound. Here's the before:

                    and here's what I managed to do with it:

                      I can see that it's a little rough around the top of the hos.
