    I was going through old pics and trying to update them so I could use them, and I discovered using backgrounds. I'm having a blast. Here are two of my DD and her beau.

        Thanks for all the kind words on my DD. Of course, her Mom thinks she is pretty, but she doesn't think that she is….go figure??? She has self-esteem issues. The guy in the pic is my beautiful DGD's father. My DD still loves him, and I do too….but they are not together right now. It's a long, sad story. Maybe over a glass or two of wine I can tell about it. For now….I just pray for the best for all of us.

        (Besides….I think I look a little like her….{{grin-grin}}}

          OK Debbie, you have to tell us how to use these great backgrounds.

          Well….first I put the pic through CS5…or PSE. I used Florabella Sapphire at about 35% density. Then, I opened the background that I had downloaded from that site. I treated it just like a texture and placed it over the picture. Then I decreased the density to almost zero so that the faces and bodies would be clearly seen. I selected the eraser tool and set the density at 100% to erase the background off the faces and hair. Then I decreased it to 40% or there abouts to go around the bodies to give it an ethereal look. On the background with the circles, I had to move the overlay around to get the circles in the right spot over the picture to make it look like I wanted it to. Easy-peasy!!! I thought it tued out really well. It made an icky background look good.

              "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
