Now that we are back from Disney it's time to download and sort through the 800+ pictures I took. The good news is that I won't bore you by posting all of those pictures. The bad news is that not one of those pictures is of a tacky outfit. I know, it's a sad day when a girl can't go to Disney World and be assaulted by skanky outfits. I did see a few outfits that were picture worthy but they were all at Downtown Disney and it would have been way obvious that I was documenting the outfit. And then jparks would have had to fight the slut's boyfriend and I really like jparks' face the way it is. So, no pictures for you.
So I'm sitting here facing 800+ non-slut pictures from the trip and am feeling highly overwhelmed. The problem is that I had vowed that these would be the first pictures that I give the photoshop treatment to. That decision was made because I've had photoshop for awhile now, and have been so scared of it, that I haven't even opened the application. Yeah, I suck. But photoshop is so big and scary. It's got so many buttons to click. And I'm a pansy.
To help me get over this irrational fear I bought a photoshop how to book that a friend recommended. And that book was nice, but not quite the kick in the ass that I needed.
What is the kick in the ass that I'm looking for? I don't think it's a class because those are too expensive. I don't think it's another book, because the one I have doesn't suck. I think what I need might be more of a tutor, either human or website based. Someone or something that can take a picture and show me what they would do to it. I'm fairly certain that having a hand to guide me through the scary "where the hell do I start?" phase would help a lot.
In my ideal world wide web there would be a site that allows you to submit a picture and then uses it to create a step by step tutorial working towards a final product. Does this site currently exist and I just haven't found it yet? Please, TELL ME! Do you want to take the time to show me a step by step tutorial? Again, TELL ME! I would be your best friend and probably would make you cookies. Is there a good photoshop tutorial site that you love and you just know I would love as well? FREAKING TELL ME! I mean, please FREAKING TELL ME!
