Happy Thanksgiving!

I made a collage of some of the MANY things that I am thankful for. I have been so blessed with many, many things, and I so often forget how blessed I truly am. I thank God for all the wonderful people He has put in my life and for this country of freedom that I have the privilege to live in!

Week 13-Photoshop Actions

I used a Photoshop Action for this picture that I found on The action is called "Polaroid Generator".

For this picture, I used a Photoshop action from called "Cinematic Effect".

For this picture of my sister and I, I used a Photoshop action called "Vintage Effect"!

On this picture, I wanted to create a somewhat vintage effect, so I used an action from called (I think) "Retro".

On most of these pictures, I also used an action called "Skin Smoothing" from This was just to even out all the skin tones in the pictures.

That was my week's work! I had a lot of fun using Photoshop actions this week!!!

Week 12-Fake Tilt Shot Pictures

I found a picture of the Colosseum in Rome and decided to make it into a fake tilt-shift photo.

I also found a picture of the Arc de Triomphe and made it into a fake tilt-shift photo.

This picture of the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra was perfect for doing a fake tilt-shift photo.

This is a picture of Omsk, Russia. I don't feel that it looks like a miniature, but I thought that the blurring worked well with the picture.

That was my work for the week!!

Week 11 work-Tutorials

I took the original of this picture (above) and decided to change the color of the roof to green.

I didn't like the color of the apples in the original picture (above), so I decided to change the color of the apples using the color replacement tool. I think that it worked really well!

I took this picture at one of our school's football games. The image was really dark, so I decided to adjust the shadow/highlight in the picture.

I found this picture (above) of gondolas in Venice, Italy. Using text as a layer mask, I made the image so that you can only see the picture through the letters.
