Tryin' my hand at a little photoshop

I've been wanting to learn to use my photoshop elements more for a long time now. I do some digital scrap booking and love that, but I really have wanted to learn how to edit my photos. So, last night when I took this cute picture of Livvy at the ballpark, I just knew this had to be my first subject. I loved her little face in the picture- just not the guy's rear end. :)


Here is the original picture:




I thought how cute it would be to add something pretty as a background to contrast her with the baseball. Now, this is my first attempt, so I have lots to learn, but it was a lot of fun! Not perfect, but better...


Here is the new background...

Whatcha think?

Love the 'new' background. You are way better than removing backgrounds than I am! It looks awesome! You'll have to share your tips/tutorials ;-)

I don't know Liss..I really kinda liked the guys rear end. It gives it that genuine ball parkish feel. I especially like how you can't even focus on Liv because all you really see is man hiney.

OPPOSITE DAY!

Love what you did with the second pic. Sorry I haven't called you back yet. Crazytown over here! Tomorrow? Love you
