Photoshop Elements Fun

I don't use my Photoshop Elements nearly enough. The other night, I saw a link to Mindy Bush's blog and I was blown away by the way an action changes your entire photo. So I bought this set of actions immediately. I never buy that kind of stuff ... I always am the one looking for free downloads ... but I thought that for the price, a lot of actions were included.
I took these photos today and was just playing around with them.
Before ...
After ... using one of the colour actions after getting rid of the dark crud on the ball with the clone tool.
Before ...
After ... using one of the colour actions and the dark edge action.
I am diggin' these actions in a big way.
Did a little scrappy scrappy tonight. Plan on doing some more tomorrow. DH has been combining wheat and W is at my mom's. Just the big guy and little guy home tomorrow but I have a feeling the big one will be "helping" with the wheat. A nice quiet day for me to get caught up on laundry, cleaning and with any luck, some crafty stuff.

CUTE photos. I love how you used your software. I love doing that stuff (although I never used actions before, which to me sounds so ridiculous not to have yet! LOL!). It's great to have pics like those!

I love the photos. I really need to take the leap and buy some actions now. I like what you did with yours. Maybe I'll go check out that site. I hope you get some scrapping done today!

Actions are still a mystery to me, but I love your photos. Have to let this stir in my brain a bit. Cute boys! Super cute!
