Oh the joys and wonders of Photoshop.

Man, have I told you how much I love our engagement pictures?? Oh, I haven't? Well, I do!!!!! Yesterday at work I decided to make this picture my background, and I have not regretted the decision. :)

The only thing is, I just wish the sky had been a little blue-er when we were out there, because I'm, at the moment, obsessed with blues and greens. The greens are very green, but the blue is, well, nonexistent.

So after a bit of research on google (i.e. "how to make sky bluer on photoshop elements") and reading through several articles before finding anything useful, I stumbled upon something that actually made sense. Add a layer, use a gradient sky blue down to white, then use the Darken blending mode (all of which didn't initially make sense, but...) and voila!

Pretty sweet, huh??
Before and After:

Now, this is definitely not perfect/not print-worthy, but I have to say, I'm pretty proud of myself. :)

  1. Nice work! You'll have to show me how to do this sometime. :)


Even if it's just to say "You so silly, Sarah" - please feel free to leave comments!
