The Patient Husband


Click Here to Bid (8x8in.)

For this scene from France, I wanted to change some things. So before I started I opened the photo in Photoshop and created a layer on top. Imagine a clear sheet of plastic over a photo - this is a layer. Then I used the "paintbrush tool" and colored in new stuff where I wanted it. You can see the before and after below. Mostly I lightened and simplified the background. I also simplified the store items in the foreground. You can see I also changed some things in the final version - artistic liberty. I'll definitely do this again!

This is really helpful Carol. What version of photoshop works well and is fairly easy?

Hi Andy! I bought Photoshop ages ago. I don't even know which version I have anymore. But these days they sell you a subscription anyway, and (I'm pretty sure) it's $10/mo, and that gives you access to the absolute latest version. Another option is Photoshop Elements, which is much cheaper, and more user-friendly.
